“Best of” 2018: Wedding Receptions

 

Tampa Bay Bridal Show TheXpos | February 10, 2019

One of our favorite parts of the wedding is getting that first glimpse of the reception room, because you can literally do anything with the right vendors and designers in place. From transforming a blank canvas into a modern and romantic space to adding a luxurious table runner full of lush flowers and suspending florals from the ceiling, these Tampa Bay wedding receptions from 2018 were unforgettable.

“There were so many elements that we loved about The Vault, from the moment we walked in: its floor-to-ceiling windows, elegant architecture and contemporary feel. However it was without a doubt the venue’s previous history that sealed the deal for us. We learned The Vault had originally been the National Exchange Bank, which we knew was the perfect venue to celebrate our big day, given that both Erik and I work in the banking and finance field,” the bride shared.

“Upon my first visit to the Hilton Tampa Downtown, I absolutely fell in love with the chandeliers in the ballroom! The inside of the hotel has also been recently renovated, so it is very nice and modern,” Courtney gushed. “We loved that the Hilton could keep our guests downtown for the day, especially since we break between our ceremony and reception due to Sacred Heart having unusual times available. This allowed guests to hangout and explore downtown Tampa between events. We also found that the price per person package for food/drink, as well as the block room rates, were more affordable than at other venues. All of this in combination with our ceremony also being located downtown made it easy to choose the Hilton.”
