A gorgeous, festive wedding, perfect for Christmas!
Maria and Charles wed during December in Sarasota, Florida. Maria wanted a very passionate and fiery wedding to match her personality. With red roses flown in from her home country of Columbia, along with the musicians, the wedding embraced the best of both bride and groom.
Maria’s dress was a strapless, fitted gown from Pronovias, with mermaid train and full length veil. Her bridesmaids wore striking red lace dresses – a perfect contrast to the white of Maria’s and a perfect match for Charles’ red suit with black detail, coordinating with the groomsmen.
Flowers were seasonal, with dark green foliage. Velvet roses, lilies and orchids made up the bouquets and table centrepieces.
What better way to celebrate the season than to marry with the sea in front of you and a Christmas tree behind?! I love how the couple didn’t shy away from embracing the Christmas season, incorporating trees, wreaths and traditional white, red and gold colours in their day – even their cake was a striking red with dramatic gold monogram.
