There’s something about winter that makes me think of classic white weddings, and while the arctic blast is chilling the deep south, this gorgeous all white wedding makes me feel warm all over. This stunning event was held under the warmth of a spring Florida sun, but classic white sets an elegant tableau in any season.
The St. Augustine wedding of Natalia Yorden and Blake Walden combined white florals and linens with some sparkle and hints of greenery for this classic, elegant design. Layers of white add depth to the look and tiny touches of metallics like the gold-tipped chargers bring warmth and luxury to the design.
Just the tiniest touches of green peep out from underneath the cascade of white orchids in Natalia’s gorgeous bouquet.
Bridesmaid gowns in muted tones paired beautifully with the classic black tuxes of the groomsmen. While the satin sheen adds some sparkle, the subtle shade of the gowns acts like a neutral palette and keeps the overall look cohesive and elegant.
The tablescapes included a greenery runner layered with multiple white floral elements. Sky high centerpieces with cascading florals and hanging glass orbs provided a wow factor across the venue. The narrow vases and translucent risers gave florals some height but allowed for seated guests to converse across the table with ease.
Guest seating placed between the band and dance floor created a swanky lounge area for guests to relax and enjoy the music. While most lounge areas tend to be tucked away in a corner of the venue, the placement of this plush seating keeps those guests seeking a more comfortable seat fully engaged in the party.
