Alyssa and MJ were set up through the bride's cousin on a surprise blind date at Ceviché, and later got engaged at the same restaurant. When MJ proposed to Alyssa he not only did so at the restaurant where they had their first date, but he proposed in the spot where they first kissed (literally swoon!) The couple both attended Florida State University so garnet and gold were a natural choice for their color palette; subtle pops of blush were also incorporated which created a soft romantic feel. Wanting a wedding that mixed traditional elements with fun experiences for their guests, and lots of personal touches, every detail of this wedding was elegant, timeless, fun, and had Alyssa and MJ written all over it!
Jennifer and Jeff met in college, despite going to different schools, and both went on to become urban planners. Their professions and the greater Tampa Bay area dictated the vision for their wedding. The biggest source of inspiration however was their love of brunch, the couple's favorite meal of the day! Ivory flowers with touches of wispy greenery decorated the space along with pops of yellow, the brides favorite color. Their honeymoon, in New York City, was a testament to their love of cities and urban planning, which prompted such details as their seating chart and table numbers.
Eric and Nicole had no idea fate was pulling them together, living at the same apartment complex in Tallahassee and attending countless FSU games, but never meeting until mutual friends introduced them at Beef 'O Brady's (watching an FSU game of course!) In true Seminoles fashion, Eric proposed at the Unconquered statue at Florida State University. The garnet and gold color scheme was an obvious choice for the couple, but pops of eggplant were also incorporated throughout to bring an element of Springtime to their March nuptials.
Sarah and Mark first met at an engineering fraternity luncheon as students at the University of Florida (GO GATORS!), and soon after Mark's job relocated them to Arizona, he popped the question! Sara envisioned a garden wedding with shades of ballet pink, dusty blue and white. The Davis Islands Garden Club was a perfect backdrop, a ceremony that was naturally so beautiful it needed little extra help. They wanted their day to be truly about their marriage and celebrating with their closest friends and family, so they kept the details timeless and minimal. The result was gorgeous (as is evident by their stunning photos!)
Haley and Max, two young entrepreneurs in Tampa, first met through mutual friends at a business fraternity. What started out as friendship began to ignite sparks, and soon after purchasing an engagement ring Max popped the question - he just couldn't hold on to the ring any longer without asking! The couple envisioned an intimate backyard wedding with their closest friends and family with all the beautiful details of a wedding (such as her stunning earthy flora) without all of the stuffy traditions (instead they wanted a big PARTY!). Both love experiencing nightlife and local cuisine with friends, so it was no surprise that their music and menu were top priorities for the celebration.
