In case you didn’t know, Chanel can be an impeccable addition to a wedding. Just ask Nichol and Michael, who’s classy Sarasota wedding was held on the lawn of the Ritz-Carlton. With romance in the air, this event was nothing short of breathtaking. The perimeter of the ceremony space is naturally lined with palm trees. Amidst the beautiful Ritz-Carlton architecture, Nichol and Michael exchanged vows under a posh pale pink canopy, complete with crystal chandelier, in front of their guests. Appropriately named, the couple’s Jack Russell Terrier, Pearl, also was an important part of the ceremony.
Nichol’s wedding dress was fashion-forward with a lace bodice and tulle skirt. The most eye-popping detail was the waist, where the tulle gathered to resemble a flowery bow. She styled her sleek, low updo with a waist-length veil, sparkly silver heels and over-the-top necklace and earrings. Her bouquet was lovely with a generous collection of pink and white peonies. Her bridesmaids also shared in the stylish affair wearing one-shoulder, pink bubble hem dresses with black waistbands. They paired their black Chanel clutches with black heels and their bouquets were also made with peonies and green buds. Two adorable flower girls rounded out the bride’s side wearing white dresses with small black waistbands. Michael looked the definition of dashing. He wore a clean, crisp black tuxedo with a black bowtie. His groomsmen wore the same style and all collectively looked debonair with simple white boutonnieres.
After the wedding was their dreamy, classy and timeless reception. Where to begin! The entire reception took place under a clear tent so guests could dine and dance beneath the stars. The occasion was filled with classic shades of black, ivory and pink. Tables were decorated with black lace overlays, black candle holders, romantic pink roses, beautiful crystal stemware, romantic tea light candles and of course, various homages to Chanel.
The cake didn’t disappoint either. Beautiful in its simplicity, the four-tier cake was white with black bands and tiers of immaculate pink roses. The couple created an ethereal experience and every single detail was executed to perfection with a grand and glamorous touch.
A common theme throughout the day was live like there’s no tomorrow and that’s certainly the kind of ambiance Nichol and Michael enjoyed on their special day. We hope the couple’s new life together is just as beautiful, endearing and romantic as their unforgettable wedding.
