Marisa and Kevin’s luxurious garden wedding in downtown St. Pete wedding was the personification of modern romance. With trendy decor, including a statement piece rose quartz inspired ceremony backdrop, clear ghost chairs, and a custom monogrammed white dance floor, every detail was lush and eye catching.
“My planners and décor company really helped shape the theme for my wedding, I knew I wanted something romantic, but wanted to keep it modern,” the bride beamed.
In planning her big day, Marisa knew she needed an experienced St. Pete wedding planner who would be there for them from start to finish. Looking for an event coordinator who could help with inspiration, but not take over completely, the bride turned to Parties A La Carte.
“From day one Jessica, the owner of Parties A La Carte, helped me with everything I needed. I had known her for years, and when I saw the weddings and events that she and her team had done, I was immediately drawn to them,” the bride raved. “Their events were beautiful and unique, so I knew no matter what I had envisioned for my wedding, Jessica was going to make it happen for me. I hired them right after getting engaged, and from that moment on, the team went above and beyond to make my dream wedding come true. There would not have been a wedding if it weren’t for them!”
The groom, an outfielder for the Tampa Bay Rays, looked dapper in his pinstripe navy blue suit, while the bride dazzled in a low-cut Pnina Tornai wedding dress from non-other than Kleinfeld Bridal.
Everything about the couple’s wedding day was about personalization with attention to the littlest of details making a big impact.
“The customization and level of detail that went into even the smallest items made our wedding unique. Our custom monogram was on everything from the programs, napkins, and cookies, to the dance floor, DJ booth and dessert bar!” Marisa gushed. “I absolutely loved our color palette of dusty rose, burgundy, and rose gold. From my bridesmaids’ dresses and paper to every last detail in the décor, the color scheme played perfectly throughout.”
