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.
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!
Brittany and Tyler were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend and it was a perfect match! Brittany has always loved the Lake Mirror area of Lakeland, so Tyler planned the ultimate proposal on New Years Eve 2015, walking the nearby gardens together after dinner and proposing in front of the lake. Tyler even booked the adjacent Magnolia Building for New Year's Eve 2016, unbeknownst to Brittany, and when he popped the quested he asked if she would marry him on New Years Eve the following year in that very spot! After the proposal, he surprised Brittany with a New Year's Eve engagement party that night. Needless to say, New Years Eve and their Lakeland venue were very sentimental to them; They even shared the sweetest first look in the garden where they were engaged. The pair decided to exchange vows at the church where Tyler is a youth pastor, and then host a cocktail-style reception afterwards where guests could ring in the New Year with lots of heavy hors d'oeuvres and sweets. To end the night, party poppers were released by the wedding party as they welcomed the year 2017!
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'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!
