The theme for Caitlin and James’ wedding was ‘elegant vintage’. They were married on the front walk of the Ringling Museum’s Ca’ d’zan Mansion atop of a bed of lavender. Vintage iron gates and church pews were brought in to infuse their personalities into the ceremony décor. Caitlin exited a beautiful vintage car to begin her walk down the long aisle. They incorporated their own vows into the ceremony to make their promises to one another very personal.
At the end of the evening the aroma of fresh donuts filled the air. Each guest was handed a box of warm mini donuts, made on location, along with cans of Starbucks as they boarded the trolleys to return to their hotels.

A saxophone player followed Caitlin and her dad down the aisle playing ‘Isn’t She Lovely’. There wasn’t a dry eye to be seen.
