IN THE TROPICS
To update the popular tropical motif for a Sanibel Island wedding, Signature Florals and Kelly McWilliams commissioned gold stands from a local welder to raise a full arrangement of monstera, palm and banana leaves, punctuated by the bride’s favorite pink orchids and roses.
FALLING IN LOVE
It may always be sunny and green in Southwest Florida, but that doesn’t mean you can’t channel fall-in-the-country vibes. Fort Myers’ Floral Symphony and Naples’ Avec Moi Event Planning & Design did so with foliage and blooms in deep hues, like burgundy and burnt orange, accented with huckleberry greenery and brass.
For an event at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, Kaleidoscope Floral and Jet Set Wed created canopies to reflect the outdoor setting. The sprays of hanging delphinium were chosen to rustle in the coastal breeze, and the mercury-glass lanterns shimmered in the afternoon sun.
Inspired by a photo of a wisteria-covered courtyard and the architecture of the clients’ Naples home, Kaleidoscope Floral and Jet Set Wed draped a portico with delphiniums and orchids in blush, cream and mauve tones, allowing foliage to spill down the arches for a wild, organic look.
