Nina Marie and Alex - A Unique Celestial Wedding in Downtown Tampa

Nina Marie and Alex first met at the wedding of a mutual friend. They soon found they both had a love for the stars above, especially the moon, so the natural choice for their offbeat wedding was a celestial theme. They wanted a dark and moody October celebration that balanced non-traditional and classic wedding elements. Their mutual love of donuts inspired a pink donut truck outside the venue for guests to enjoy after dinner. Even their cat made an appearance, in the form of a cardboard cutout, sitting amongst the guests during the ceremony and later being passed around the dance floor! 

 Downtown Tampa provided one of a kind murals, unique to the city, perfect for posing for photos.

Robyn and Andrew - A SURPRISE April Fool's Boho Chic Wedding

Robyn and Andrew had been engaged for so long that their friends and family started asking them "so when are you guys getting married??" and after fielding the question long enough, they decided to throw an engagement party to announce their wedding date to their closest friends and family.  Little did their guests know that the engagement party, scheduled for April 1st (April Fool's Day), would be revealed as their actual wedding day!  The result was an incredibly unique and stylish SURPRISE wedding that the couple pulled off without a hitch!

Christina and Jonathan - A Merlot and Rose Wine Wedding at the Straz Theatre

When Jonathan proposed to Christina, he had just finished a 28 hour day of his residency, and secretly drove to the Kennedy Center to drop off a special bottle of wine for their date that evening.  During dinner on the rooftop terrace, Jonathan ordered a bottle of wine and the server presented the special bottle.  Jonathan turned the bottle to face Christina, revealing special dates and milestones etched on the label, and then got down on one knee and popped the question.  Swoon!  The couple knew they wanted their wedding to be set in Tampa (the city where they met) and wanted to provide a unique experience that also incorporated wine elements as a nod to their engagement. 

Lindsay and Jason - A Sunset Beach Destination Wedding in Siesta Key

Lindsay and Jason - A Sunset Beach Destination Wedding in Siesta Key

Lindsay and Jason are from Ohio but have a sentimental attachment to Florida and Siesta Key. They met through an adult kickball league, and Lindsay once said "Our relationship can be described as a friendship that blossomed into love." Her family vacationed to Siesta Key for over 20 years and had a family tradition to all go out and watch the sunset together every night. One year on vacation Jason proposed in front of her family on the beach at sunset; so their signature drink, the Siesta Key Sunset, was created in honor of that beautiful proposal story. The couple love being outside and around nature, so an outdoor wedding full of natural details was an obvious choice for them.

Kelly and Peter - A Classic Country Club Wedding

Kelly and Peter's beautiful, Palma Ceia wedding was filled with tradition and elegance, from their nuptials at their family church, to their reception at their Golf & Country Club.  Classic details were balanced with pops of color, with shades of dusty blue, peach, and cranberry, which somehow seemed to also appear in the amazing sunset photos on the greens!
