Ali-Jae and Brandon Ringling Museum Wedding, Sarasota Florida

bride bouquet

Picking your wedding venue sets the tone for the entire rest of your event and when my clients choose the Ringling Museum in Sarasota I have no doubt the tone for these events is going to be one of fabulous grandeur. Meet Ali-Jae & Brandon, my personal Ken & Barbie, I mean look at them, they look like Ken & Barbie!

Ali-Jae & Brandon lived out of state but Ali-Jae was from Sarasota so she always knew the Ringling Courtyard would be her & Brandon’s wedding spot. Working with these two was really easy. Ali-Jae valued the opinions of all her wedding vendors which in-turn gave us creative freedom to take her Tuscan theme and bring it to life. From the wood feasting tables, olive branch garlands & a red grape seating card display, we had every detail covered. One of my favorite vendors we brought in to this event was Innovative Dining, their food is AMAZING. During cocktail hour, we placed bowls of gourmet olives and meats on the cocktail tables for guest to nosh on while the caterers passed flavorful canapes. The dinner menu was a selection of Pan seared Branzino, Steak Florentine and Hand rolled Potato Gnocchi with San Marzano Tomato Squash Lemon Ricotta and Grana. Of course, when it came to dessert no expensive was spared. A gelato carte rolled in with fresh gelato & sugar cones, they had warm fresh zeppole and chocolate truffles, pecan bar bites & cashew blondies. YUM

Well now that I made myself hungry rehashing that scrumptious menu it’s time to turn you over to their blog to gaze over their awesomely photographed pictures by the talented Tiffani Jones.

Cheers!
