A tea garden ceremony with lush, elaborate floral design by Botanica topped this incredible Vinoy Wedding in St. Petersburg, Florida! My couple traveled from Miami to have their enchanted european inspired wedding at this historic venue!
Julieanna and Henry | Sneak Peek
January 18, 2020 at The Vinoy in St. Petersburg, FL
A chance of fate brought this beautiful couple together. While Julieanna was attending FAU she decided to go out for drinks with a friend, once they got to the bar she met her prince charming, Henry! They ended up talking for hours that night, Julieanna even said it was the best conversation that she has ever had with someone. Henry asked if she would like to grab coffee with him the next day, and the rest is history!
When Henry proposed it came as a complete surprise! Julieanna had her suspicions that he was going to propose at a ski trip they had planned for this year, but it actually happened in New York City over the holidays. Henry and Julieanna were in NYC visiting his family, when they went on a walk in central park with his sister. Henry’s sister insisted they go to a special spot that overlooked the city so she can get a picture, and of course henry knew Julieanna would want a picture here as well. So while the pictures were happening Henry proposed!!!
Vinoy Tea Garden Wedding
Their wedding was an absolute fairytale, with colors of blush, champagne, gold and ivory; the whole wedding was bright and beautiful. The ceremony took place in the tea garden at The Vinoy which was almost completely covered with flowers. The couple opted to not do a first look, as they wanted the ceremony to be the first time they saw each other on their wedding day. As Julieanna walked down the aisle and Henry saw his bride for the first time he couldn’t stop smiling, and his eyes welled up with tears (which continued to happen for the rest of the night).
As the newlyweds were walking down the aisle together they stopped at the end for a kiss, when confetti flew everywhere! The whole ceremony was very sweet and you could definitely feel the love that these two have for each other. The reception was equally as beautiful, and decked out with flowers much like the ceremony. Instead of confetti the couple had giant sparklers that went off during their first dance.
Henry and Julieanna met in Miami and it has been their home for the last five years, so they are incredibly excited to soon be buying a home and eventually starting a family there. They will be sure to bring along their Pomeranian, Gatsby, and cat, Zienna (maybe a couple foster pets too). They are looking forward to their lives together, and hope their future will be filled with more traveling as a married couple!
