We were contacted last summer by Michele. She was coming down from Maryland and had in mind a small, laid back wedding on the beach in St.Pete and needed someone to help set it up and keep it running smoothly. We were more than happy to take on the task! She reserved the outside pavilion at Rum Runners at the Sirata Beach Resort, with food and bar provided by them, and a decadent dessert bar from Dancing Cats Cafe.
The pavilion is open air and overlooks the beach, and at night when its quiet you can hear the waves crashing onto the shore. It was the perfect backdrop for the intimate reception for 40 guests, and October 17th could not have been a more beautiful afternoon for a wedding!
Michele had made all the décor by hand, and her parents drove it down from Maryland! Once we set it all up, it took our breath away and brightened the space up even further! Then Dancing Cats arrived with all their amazing desserts for the dessert bar, and this wedding hit another level!
Custom chocolate covered oreos, caramel covered pretzel rods, cupcakes, pie pops, cake pops and lemon squares had all the guests cruising on a sugar high, and we can attest personally that they were all delicious!! The dessert bar was definitely the highlight of the evening for the guests and the bride and groom. There were even enough for everyone to take a goody bag home at the end of the night 🙂
This wedding was the epitome of laid back and relaxed, and was so much fun to help with!
