Ringling Museum Wedding for Caitlin and James

Ringling Museum Wedding for Caitlin and James

Sarasota Florida Wedding Planner Choreographedevents.comThe 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.  After the ceremony, cocktails were held on the waterfront terrace of the Mansion.  Guests were then taken, by trolley, to the Ringling Museum Courtyard for dinner and dancing.

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.
