Sunshine and Citrus

Summertime means sunshine and citrus in South Florida. Bright yellows, cheery greens, lots of fresh citrus and summertime fruits. So many wonderful details of summer! Take all of these details and combine them together and you get the perfect recipe for a South Florida summertime wedding. This year we kicked off our summer with a fresh event in Key Largo, Florida at the Ocean Reef Club. Our bride Ashley wanted a laid back, relaxed and cheery vibe so we selected lemons to be the star of the decor!
We combined fresh lemons with bright greenery foliage and elegant florals of calla lilies and hydrangeas for a soft, garden like combination. Lush greenery and lemon garlands flanked the entrance into the reception as they wrapped around the columns.
Guests were welcomed to a place card table of carved wooden lanterns, crates of lemons and fresh topiaries.
To create a feature piece on the head table we ran a garland of lemon leaves and fresh lemons with clusters of hydrangea and calla lilies in rustic wooden crates. The entire garland was accented with lots of romantic candles on glass candlesticks. This look was complimented by fresh topiaries placed in the center of the guests tables. To add a cheery element to the all white room we incorporated yellow satin chair cushions on the chivari chairs and yellow and white striped napkins over rustic rattan chargers.
We continued the bright colors throughout the space and the cocktail hour with striped linens on the cocktail tables, cylinders of fruit on the bar, and foliage detail on the rustic chandeliers overhead.
Ashley chose to let the scenery speak for itself at her laid back ceremony but we included the bright yellows and dripping greens in her hand tied bouquet of white garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, dusty miller foliage and yellow calla lilies.
This was a great start to summer and such a fun and unique concept. All photos were taken by Hazel photography; linens were provided by Over the Top Linens and rentals were provided by Elements and Accents.
