Katie and Mike put together a perfect winter wedding with a non-traditional winter color palette of Emerald Green, Blush Pink, and Pewter (which we loved)! Katie's gorgeous gown received A LOT of special attention that day; she had a final reveal with her dad, bridesmaids, and the groom, in three different and intimate first looks (And how beautiful was Katie's fur stole?). Does anyone else just melt when they see tears welling up in a father's eyes? And we love how the bridesmaids were all cheering with excitement!
Kaylee and Ryan wanted their wedding to reflect their Southern roots and shared Faith in a gorgeous waterfront garden wedding in Tampa. Their soft color palette of blush, rose gold, and gold, was reflected in details like the flowy chiffon bridesmaid dresses, romantic loose flora, and vintage candlesticks on the tables.
Dana and Al are jet-setting professionals that have traveled the world, and have the enormous group of friends and family to show for it! They wanted a unique and memorable wedding that their guests would never forget, and what better way to showcase their new roots in Tampa than a garden wedding overlooking the iconic Bayshore Boulevard, the bay, and downtown? They paired their classic, elegant style with a little Latin flair and the result was a stunning Fall event fit for the fun and discerning palates alike!
Jen and Alex desired a wedding filled with southern simplicity, and planned to DIY many wedding details to help maximize their budget. Their Florida roots inspired such details as the painted blue mason jars, cut log risers, collection of bud vases and lanterns, program fans, burlap table runners, and Southern-inspired menu items. They wanted a rustic Autumn feel to the day but were drawn to shades of Aqua and Aubergine (the shade of purple was in honor of the bride's Dad who passed away from Pancreatic Cancer; she was surprised with a photo locket on her bouquet so he would be walking her down the aisle). The couple wanted to honor their family members who could not be present with them that day, while also providing a great experience for their closest friends and family who were present. Although a thunderstorm thwarted their outdoor ceremony plans, they did not let it ruin our day because they remembered the big picture and what was really important that day which was being with all the people they love, and marrying your best friend (all brides and grooms should have this outlook!) The Magnolia Building's vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and stone fireplace made for a stunning backdrop for both the indoor ceremony and the reception that followed.
