Ringling Museum Wedding Inspiration.
At first thought, one might not think a wedding to be synonymous with the circus but this styled shoot at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Fla., will convince you otherwise.
Built with Italy in mind, this impressive museum is modeled after Florence’s Uffizi Gallery and the result is breathtaking. Inside, the abundant art and sculptures foster creativity, while the outside promotes its character through clean lines, simple sophistication, and its distinctive pink exterior.
The vows are handwritten in calligraphy on natural blush, antique paper. This is a perfect keepsake after the wedding day is complete.
Inspired by the classic styles, the bride wears a lace high-neck gown with elbow-length sleeves. Her hair is styled in a voluminous updo and she wears statement earrings.
The bouquet is a creative collection of blooms. Anemones offer a subtle contrast to the pink roses, white ranunculus, and greenery, and the bouquet is hand-tied with light pink ribbons.
She playfully reinvents her look with the simple draping of a lace-lined veil. She also wears lace Valentino heels to tie in the main element of her bridal style.
A celebratory table is set with timeless décor. Vintage crystal glassware, white china, tall pink pillars, and a gorgeous centerpiece are positioned atop a light pink linen. Even the beverage of choice coordinates with the color palette.
The courtyard is picturesque with its gazebo and plentiful gardens.
The mix of classic and modern architecture and abundance of natural light make for a perfect backdrop. The steps overlooking the water are serene and captivating.
For a blush-loving bride, the Ringling Museum beckons you with its cheerful hue. There is a strong ethereal elegance to this shoot thanks in part to the old world charm of the museum. With more than 10,000 pieces in the museum’s art collection, you, too, can have “the greatest show on Earth” thanks to this Ringling inspiration.
