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.

“Our personalities are that we are the ones who plan the trips or parties for our friends. When it came to our wedding, we each were responsible for what we were passionate about and our personalities shined through,” the bride explained. “For Mike, the music and food were all him! For me, the décor and details let my personality shine.”

“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.”

“I am very detail oriented and I wanted my wedding to be the same. My personality was incorporated through the main design of the wedding décor,” Nia explained. “The draping adding a tremendous amount to the ambience; we draped the whole room. We wanted you to feel like you were somewhere else. Kabe [of Gabro Event Services] was confident in his capabilities, and he definitely reached all of our expectations!”

“My bridesmaids described our reception space as what they imagined the inside of my brain looked like: so sparkly!” the bride shared. “I had a lofty goal for draping the ballroom, but I did not have a lofty budget for it. Kabe, the owner of Gabro Event Services, was so nice, worked with my budget, and was able to drape everything just as I’d hoped.”
