Gabriella and Aric wanted their wedding to reflect their traditional Catholic backgrounds, the bride's Venezuelan heritage, and have an overall old Florida feel. The groom's love of craft beer inspired the space for their rehearsal dinner, which was held at The Tampa Bay Brew Bus, as well as all the craft beer that was served at the reception. Elegant classic design paired with personalized touches created a luxurious and sophisticated affair in the heart of Tampa.
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.
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!
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!
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!)
