What feels like yesterday, our team came together with some of our favorite people to showcase South Tampa’s newest venue, The Orlo. This historic three story home that was built in 1882 by Orlo J. Spafford for his family became the home to the Tampa Women’s Club in 1922 and now sits today as Tampa’s premier event venue, boasting a beautiful 2800 square ft ballroom behind the home with many charming details kept throughout.
I first came upon this venue with our friends at Saltblock Catering and immediately fell in love! Under it’s heavy construction was a venue so fabulous, I knew South Tampa was in for an amazing new space, unlike any other in Tampa’s vastly growing city.
So what did we do…..well, we teamed up with Still Floral and The Ganey’s along with many other talented vendors to create an editorial full of lush details of apricot and dusty rose florals with greenery details throughout. The vision was stunning for a spring wedding in a southern bungalow home nestled in the heart of South Tampa. Boasting of sweet southern details of a charming venue, a grand staircase, soft textures and floral detail, romantic hand written invitations and vintage stamps! – OH, how could I forget? We made sure to include lots of great food detail as well! After all, it’s what truly steals our hearts every time! A phenomenal cuisine prepared in The Orlo’s country kitchen by Saltblock and paired with our favorite drink, the Old Fashioned!
A lounge inspired by European detail provided the perfect backdrop and seating for our bride in the her bridal suite, full of light, floral arrangements and timeless detail, she was pampered for the day as Jessica of Beauty Savage added light touches of makeup and soft curls; perfect touches for our bride’s beautifully detailed wedding gown and stunning bouquet!
