{Kristina & Clyde @Ca d'Zan Mansion - Ringling Museum}

We met Kristina and Clyde at Katie and Ivan's wedding who were referred to us by Lauren and Josh.  It's always fun to see our couples again!!  Clyde and Kristina have been together 5 years. Clyde shared that he proposed to her on Longboat Key so it was fitting for their ceremony to be close by in Sarasota at the Ca d' Zan.  Kristina gave Clyde a pair of amazing shoes and matching belt that the groomsmen "might" have been a little jealous of! ;) They all wore matching striped socks with navy handkerchiefs and ties that were a gift from Clyde.  The girls wore matching shirts and drank champagne while getting ready.  Kristina's shirt had their date and "I Do" on the sleeves, which i thought was a cute touch!  Her Kate Spade shoes were the talk of the morning and all the girls secretly wanted them, shoot I secretly wanted them ;)  The ceremony was held on the front lawn with an aisle that went on for days.  Watching the bridal party walk down was like watching the Royal Wedding!  After the ceremony, guests were invited to tour the mansion and the cocktail hour was on the back terrace.   Beautiful gold lanterns and pink, purple, and green florals adorned each reception table.  Mini succulents were at each setting for guests to take with them.  Their cuisine was setup in stations with fried chicken & waffles, sweet potatoes, and macaroni and vegetables.  They had monogrammed cozies for the craft beers from Cigar City.  The cake had gold floral piping and blue chevron, with a little gator peeking out from underneath!  They had to include a little Gator spirit!  It was beautiful and everyone had an amazing time!!  Congrats Kristina & Clyde we loved every minute!  xoxoxo
