- April 9, 2014
William McComb and Sloane Sapan were set up in college 12 years ago. Fast forward to 2014, and the two were engaged. William proposed to Sloane at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, in Miami, because growing up that is where she always wanted to get married. However, as adults, the couple wanted something much more intimate and that led to deciding to have the celebration at their Siesta Key house, a Sarasota School of Architecture home built in 1955.
The Jan. 3 ceremony took place on a private property on the water on Siesta Key. It was located on Ralph Twitchell’s former property where his house sat before it was deemed unsalvageable and torn down. The couple wanted a simple ceremony because the property spoke for itself. They only used candles to light the aisle and black ghost chairs as decor. The ceremony took place at sunset, and, following cocktail hour, guests were treated to a firework sendoff to the reception across the street.
The reception took place at the couple’s own midcentury modern home. They transformed the backyard into a secret garden to accommodate their dream wedding. The bride’s vision for the wedding was magical and the evening’s theme was “one love.” She wanted to focus on setting a mood, and to do that lighting was the priority. Elegant neutral flowers, up lighting, candles and bistro lighting created a glowing ambiance against Venetian mirror tables.
