Best of 2017: Wedding Ceremonies

ROMANTIC MODERN PINK AND WHITE CLEARWATER WEDDING | COUNTRYSIDE COUNTRY CLUB

“I love simplicity, clean and modern lines, yet color and texture is something I am obsessed with. Most people choose soft colors, but to add the wow factor and to bring your design to the next level, we recommend adding pops of color or a textured element; it will definitely make a difference. With this design, I chose soft whites with a pop of fuchsia and soft shades of pink, gold and rose gold.” -Petra Dvorak, Special Moments

MODERN BLACK AND WHITE TAMPA WEDDING

“We didn’t do a first look, and we stayed apart the night before our wedding, so, the moment when we saw each other for the first time up close (once I walked down the aisle of the church) was special. We were both so nervous, and it was comforting to be reunited and holding hands. The moment after we first became husband and wife, Andrew began to cry, and we were both so happy and overwhelmed with emotion.” -The Bride

ELEGANT DUSTY ROSE, PINK AND GOLD CLEARWATER BEACH DESTINATION WEDDING

“We wanted soft colors for the beach; whites, blues, dusty rose and soft lavender and the same colors for the wedding reception, but with pops of richer colors like pink, navy and purple. We love blending casual and formal and modern and traditional.” -The Bride

COASTAL WATERFRONT SOUTH TAMPA WEDDING | WESTSHORE YACHT CLUB

“My husband and I both spend a lot of time outdoors and on the water, so it was important for us to try to incorporate our love of boating and the beautiful Tampa Bay into our plans. The Westshore Yacht Club was a perfect and gorgeous setting. An added bonus were the dolphins passing by and the luxury yachts in the background,” -The Bride

“SEX AND THE CITY” INSPIRED MODERN DOWNTOWN TAMPA STYLED WEDDING SHOOT | THE TAMPA CLUB

“We love this ceremony look as it says sophistication and glam. This ceremony takes all of those elements and even adds romance. The details of the gorgeous floral, pulled back drapes and the candlelight down the aisle makes for an unforgettable setting paired with the skyline views offered at The Tampa Club. Guests would never forget this look while sitting at the top of Tampa.” – Madison Harding, The Tampa Club

ROMANTIC BLUSH, CHAMPAGNE AND BLUE DOWNTOWN ST. PETE WEDDING | THE BIRCHWOOD

“I loved the look of The Birchwood, the rooftop space for cocktail hour and the fact that we would be the only wedding there that weekend. We wanted the wedding to feel intimate; being a boutique hotel with only 18 rooms, our friends and family pretty much had the hotel to ourselves which was so much fun!” -The Bride

ELEGANT PALM BEACH INSPIRED WEDDING | HYATT REGENCY CLEARWATER BEACH

“Clearwater Beach was always a dream wedding destination for me. Seeing brides on the beach during my teenage years made a lasting impression and made my hometown seem that much more majestic! As soon as I saw the Sky Terrace at the Hyatt Clearwater Beach, my jaw dropped, and I knew this was it! It was the perfect mix of outdoor elements with a private area where we wouldn’t be disturbed mid-ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony backdrop. I would choose the Hyatt ten times over again.” -The Bride

NAUTICAL NAVY AND PINK WATERFRONT TAMPA WEDDING | YACHT STARSHIP

“We had originally wanted a beach wedding, but being teachers and needing to have the wedding in the summer because of our jobs, we figured July in Florida at the beach may not be comfortable for our guests due to the heat and possibility of bad weather The Yacht StarShip gave us the open Florida feel but provided an air-conditioned space for comfort. We could not have picked a better venue. We are both Sci-Fi geeks and what could have been a better venue than one called, StarShip.” -The Bride
