Tropical Wedding at Sydonie Mansion

Kait and Pat’s boho-tropical Sydonie Mansion wedding was full of unique wedding inspiration. They wanted their mansion wedding to have a true Florida feel, with a bit of a tropical vibe thrown in the mix. The key for them was to have everything feel coordinated without being overly matching. The couple also wanted to keep the decor a bit on the simple side because of the unique beauty of their mansion wedding venue.

To achieve this look they used lots and lots of tropical greenery, since Kait didn’t want too many different types of flowers. They used small pineapples to add to the tropical theme of their wedding, as well as King Protea flowers, which served as a wow factor to the florals to add a pop to their tropical greenery. Kait loved the wild look of the King Protea, which she called “Jurrasic Park Flowers”. Blush accents and mixed metals were used to polish their final look. As you can see from the pictures below, their vision was perfectly put into motion by an amazing team of wedding vendors.

Advice from the couple: Only spend time and money on the things you care about. It doesn’t matter if everyone says it’s a thing you “need” to do – if you don’t want to then don’t do it. We didn’t do the bouquet toss or garter toss. We didn’t care about cake so we did ice cream sandwiches. Do you.

Pro Tip: Take time during your reception to look at your guests. Take a mental picture of your friends and family enjoying the atmosphere.

“We had a pretty non traditional first dance song “I Found You” by the Alabama Shakes so we had a lot fun dancing and singing it. It felt like we were all alone on the dance floor, like the real-life version of the heart eye emoji.” -Kait
