“Best of” 2021 Wedding Ceremonies: Part 1

90’s Inspired Downtown St. Pete Wedding Shoot | NOVA 535

“My favorite element was definitely the arch with the rose gold tinsel. I had bought the tinsel and wasn't 100% sure it was going to look the way I wanted it to, and it looked way better than I had imagined. I think the arch really added the pop of iridescent and color we needed. I also was in love with the couple's wardrobe. His pink suit and her silver sparkle dress were stunning and couldn't have matched more perfectly.” Delaney Driver, Wilder Mind Events

Tampa Overwater Pier Wedding Ceremony | The Godfrey

“Our most element important was the view, which is why we chose The Godfrey. We chose the design inspiration based on being by the ocean and our colors were a few varieties of blues.The ceremony was unique. It touched on everything, and it was us.” -The Bride

Whimsical, Retro Boho Downtown St. Pete Wedding Styled Shoot | Red Mesa Events

“When we first started planning this shoot, we landed on the title ‘Summer of Love.' The concept was retro, light-hearted, and filled with the warm colors we love from the 70s!. We pulled in all the variations of pink, yellow (including that groovy mustard tone), red, and orange. We wanted to stick to warm, welcoming colors that make you think of summertime. The whimsical materials really helped the whole shoot take shape. My favorite elements of the shoot have to be the wooden details. I love bringing in different organic materials into a design, and the chargers and place cards for this one are just so good! Red Mesa Events gives us everything we want out of a cool downtown St. Pete venue with a mighty impact. Whether you’re obsessed with Red Mesa Cantina’s food as much as we are, or you love exposed brick and a rooftop view of the city, this venue is so incredibly versatile!” -Taylor Falcon of Taylor Falcon Events

Tropical Purple Destination Wedding | Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach

“Our wedding inspiration was tropical and simple; we didn't want to take any attention off the beautiful surroundings. The colors of our wedding were purple and tan.

Tropical Hawaiian-Inspired Clearwater Beach Wedding | Opal Sands Resort

“The theme for our was wedding was tropical elegance with lots of Hawaiian inspiration! My family has spent several summers in Maui, Hawaii; it’s our favorite place in the whole world. I wanted our wedding to feel like a weekend in paradise, so we included lots of pineapples, bright, tropical flowers, and gorgeous, purple-orchid leis to give the warmth of aloha to all our family and friends. Our colors were tropical jade, bright blue, and gold. We choose the bright blue suits because the blue had a beautiful beachy vibe, but it was still very classy.” -The Bride

Modern, Tropical Ybor City Wedding | The Cuban Club

“Inspired by the venue, we honored the building's historical significance to Tampa and to Ybor City by choosing a Cuban-themed photo shoot. We wanted an Old Havana Cuban feel but with a more formal twist consistent with the building’s architecture and interior. We used tropical florals in peach and pinks and a lot of tropical greenery. Gold was used for accents to compliment all of the gold chandeliers.” -Karen Cerboni, EventFull Weddings

Elegant White and Gold Clearwater Beach Wedding | The Sandpearl

“We are both very traditional, and some would say, old souls. We wanted everything to be classic and timeless. We love the beach, but we still wanted the wedding to be more elegant than casual. Everything came together to fit our vision of beachy elegance with classic and traditional elements. We chose white and gold colors with some sage-green accents.” -The Bride
