Sarasota Historic Mansion Wedding | Powel Crosley Estate Wedding

Powel Crosley Estate Wedding

When you think of a Florida wedding, naturally we tend to think of sandy beaches, salty air, and nautical decor. Nothing could be further from this vision for Sarah and Jeremy’s Powel Crosley Estate wedding in Bradenton, Florida. This historic Spanish mansion near Sarasota, Florida boosts jaw dropping architecture and a spacious back lawn on the water.

This fun couple met at work and are close friends with Heather and Richard Harrell. When I was asked to join a fabulous team of vendors, I was thrilled! Various shades of pink and white were chosen as the color palette. When I asked what the couple wanted most from their wedding day (besides tying the knot!), celebration was their answer.

The wedding party looked sharp in black bridesmaid dresses and grey suites. How adorable are the flower girls and ring bearers?

The Powel Crosley Estate wedding ceremony was held on the back lawn with the water as a tranquil background. Mahogany chiavari chairs, pink rose petals, and vases with submerged white calla lilies lined the aisle. In memory of the groom’s mother, a white rose wrist corsage was placed on the first chair of the right row. At the end of the aisle, a gorgeous arch filled with pink florals and greenery awaited the bridal party.

It was time to get Sarah and Jeremy married.

A lovely ceremony blended two families into one. It was incredibly sweet of Jermey to take a moment to gift Sarah’s daughter a necklace to signify this unifying moment as one happy family.

A candy bar was a sweet treat for guests made up of customized M&Ms, yogurt dipped pretzels, chocolate hearts, rock candy, and chocolate almonds. Each guest also received a bottle of wine with a customized label.

The groom’s cake was to be kept a surprise for the University of Georgia alum groom. As a Georgia gal myself, the cake has a special place in my heart!

The newlyweds, friends, family, and lovely ones danced the night away under a canopy of twinkle lights and chandeliers. When it was time to cut the cake, instead of the big moment taking place inside, we brought it out to the dance floor to ensure everyone could witness the confection cut.
