Steam Punk Powel Crosley Wedding

Dustin & Becca are not your average couple. They like different. When we met to start planning their December wedding, they had the Powel Crosley and Coconut Coast Catering booked, but not much else. They knew they liked purple, grey and black, and they need they wanted steampunk influences. We got to work making that dream come true!

What resulted was a stunning combination of elegance and offbeat. Gorgeous candelabra centerpieces and purple linens gave a haunting gothic feel to the event, and the grounds of the Powel Crosley provided a breathtaking backdrop.

Becca is an artist, who makes pieces out of animal skeletons, so of course we had to incorporate some skulls. Small decorative skulls adored the sweetheart table, and Alla of Cake Zone even made sugar skulls for the cake!

All Event Rental provided gorgeous black chiavari chairs, and strung cafe lights above the ceremony space/dance floor, adding some goth couture vibe! Rev. Botschner had a  customized ceremony, and they even painted a heart as a joining ceremony to symbolize their love for the arts!

Once dinner was done, and Brian got the party started, Dustin’s sister had a big surprise! From the balcony came the first lines of Like a Virgin, and who do we see? Beneva Fruitville, Sarasota’s star drag queen making her way down the stairs!! Becca & Dustin LOVE Beneva Fruitville and Drag Queen Bingo, and Dustin’s sister had hired her as a surprise. She sang and danced with the couple, much to their delight and the amusement of their guests, then stayed to enjoy the party! Our team even got up and danced!

Pink & Grey Powel Crosley Estate Wedding

Ben and Jessica have been our clients for almost a year.  They booked their venue, the Powel Crosley Mansion and called us. It’s been a delightful year working with them to get this gorgeous wedding together!
Ben and Jess are adorable, and so happy and laid back it’s been a pleasure.  They assembled a great team of vendors, and March 22 went off without a hitch!

Amici’s Catering provided the food, and a Piece of Cake provided a delicious and gorgeous cake with custom bows.

2 Birds Events did the floral and decor, and as always, took our breath away.  The aisle runner was talked about throughout the reception, and the chuppah Alexis decorated was one of the prettiest we’ve ever seen.pink and grey wedding, sarasota weddings, powel crosley weddings, march weddings, florida wedding, sarasota wedding planner, 2 birds events weddings pink and grey wedding, sarasota weddings, powel crosley weddings, march weddings, florida wedding, sarasota wedding planner, jewish weddings, 2 birds events weddings pink and grey wedding, sarasota weddings, powel crosley weddings, march weddings, florida wedding, sarasota wedding planner, jewish weddings, 2 birds events weddings pink and grey wedding, sarasota weddings, powel crosley weddings, march weddings, florida wedding, sarasota wedding planner, jewish weddings, 2 birds events weddings

and a first dance number to Time of My Life got the party going at the reception! as I said, Jess and Ben are so fun to work with, and made sure their guests had a great time! Papered Heart Photography was on hand to capture all the details, and did fantastic work as always! They also shot Katie & Jason’s Wedding back in October.  Powel Crosley was the perfect backdrop for this special day, and we can’t wait to work there again!
