This St. Petersburg Florida wedding was full of clean lines, vivid whites and the most elegant of gold details, chargers, monograms and centerpieces.

For James and Alison’s ceremony JESSICA RALPH transformed the Esplanade at the The Vinoy Renaissance into a floral waterfront dream. The aisle was formed by larger than life white weeping cherry trees that lead to an elevated, overly floraled altar overlooking the Tampa Bay. Cocktail hour was outdoors with covered linen umbrellas, monogramed hedges and sweetheart tables for guests to enjoy the couple’s signature drink until it was time to walk into the party.

The reception was, literal, fireworks. The big florals followed the guests from the ceremony into the ballroom. Alison and James loved every detail, they were the only thing brighter than the fireworks during their first dance.
