If Kate Spade ever styled a wedding, it would have been Patrice and Bryan’s black tie affair in the Spring!
Black Tie Kate Spade Inspired Wedding
Patrice met Bryan while both working in the same hospital in Tampa, FL. As Patrice’s entire family is from the Gulf Coast, the decision to have the wedding in Pensacola was an easy one on their part.
Bryan decided to have his groom preparations at the fabulous Grand Hotel in Downtown Pensacola, while Patrice and her bride squad took over the beautiful bridal suite at New World Landing.
Their wedding was centered around a Kate Spade Black Tie inspiration.
Bryan’s groomsmen rocked all black tuxedos, while Bryan himself wore a white tux jacket and black patent leather shoes with pops of gold jewelry. Talk about the ultimate gentleman attire!
Patrice’s surreal beautiful wedding dress was an absolute vision! The stunning gown of sheer tulle with lace appliqués showed off her beautiful curves while channeling the glam and elegance of Old Hollywood.
The bridal attendants all wore chic black chiffon dresses, against which the fuchsia rose bouquets were just the perfect Kate Spade pop of color!
New World Landing Transformed into a Kate Spade wonderland
New World Landing simply transformed into black, white, gold and fuchsia wonderland. A sit down dinner greeted all guests with multiple courses created by Skopelos’ chef de cuisine Gus Silivos.
Scrumptious deserts in the forms of two cakes, one for the bride and one for the groom, delighted the crowd both visually and via taste buds.
The couple and all their attendants had the most fun wedding introduction by the DJ which prompted a massive dance off right at the start of reception.
No shortage of fun all through the night while everyone took part in photo booth shenanigans!
Toasts and tears started flowing towards the end of the evening while the family shared their love for Patrice and Bryan and their well wishes for this sweet fun couple!
