Julia & Tyler’s Grand Romantic Wedding at The Ringling

Julia and Tyler had their wedding at the extraordinary John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. With its stunning courtyard and expansive art gallery, Sarasota’s Ringling is the perfect place for a wedding styled with artistic elegance and pure romance. But for all of its splendor, not even The Ringling could match the beauty of Julia and Tyler’s love for one another!

We had the honor of organizing Full Service Coordination for these two newlyweds and really loved seeing the attention to detail that Julia had when choosing everything from color scheme and bridal attire to printed materials and all the personalized pieces in between! We remember when we had our first consultation with Julia. It was a little different, because instead of a call we met with her mom and her grandmother as well at Marina Jacks in Sarasota where her grandmother lives. Sitting down with them that day, we knew from the first moments of chatting that we wanted to be a part of their destination wedding weekend. Inserting personal touches throughout, Julia and Tyler absolutely LOVE Siesta Key and the Village area. They wanted to make sure to have all of their guests see their favorite spots and have everyone stay on the island, which made the trolley ride to downtown Sarasota even exceptional!

The Ringling provided a stunning backdrop for Julia and Tyler’s special day, with its grand architecture and lush greenery. These elements were complimented with gorgeous tablescapes of lush floral arrangements with gold vessels and pedestals, and an array of taper and votive candles, created by Lily Bella Floral. The gold shelving escort display of pre-poured champagne added to the luxurious atmosphere. And the twinkling lights intertwined with the lush greenery enhanced the elegant garden atmosphere. It was an exquisite day, and a true pleasure to be a part of!

Along with their first look, Julia and Tyler opted to do a private vow reading. From across the courtyard, smiles and genuine warmth could be seen radiating from both of them as they shared their hearts with each other. Their love continued to pour out on the steps of the Ca’ d’Zan Tower, and ran its way through their ceremony, and into their first dance and cake cutting. Everyone in attendance could feel the love that Julia and Tyler shared. It was truly stunning!

Julia and Tyler are such a loving and sweet couple, who are truly blessed to have found each other. We adored working with them from the very start, and over a year and a half later, filled with lots of design consultations, fun zoom calls, and endless emails, we got to bring their dream day together. It was a pleasure to be a part of the start of this new season for them, and we wish them all the best in their future together!
