Victoria and Aaron’s modern and elegant waterfront Tampa wedding featured an opulent color palette of ivory and gold that complemented their luxurious wedding venue.
The Tampa couple selected hotel wedding venue The Westin Tampa Bay, placing an importance on keeping their wedding local and near the water. With a waterfront ceremony site, beautiful ballroom complete with LED lighting and stunning views of Tampa Bay, the couple knew they had found the perfect venue.
“The Westin had an excellent location and overall service. The food was important to us, and The Westin really exceeded our expectations. We still get compliments until this day on how delicious the food was!” Victoria gushed. “One of our favorite things about our venue was all of the great locations to take beautiful portraits on your wedding day, including the glass wine cellar. We could not have asked for a better day!”
What did you look for in a wedding venue?
We wanted to stay in the Tampa Bay Area and be by the water.

Aaron surprised me on my birthday with dinner at Ocean Prime, which I thought was a dinner for just us two. When I arrived, my close friends and family were there to celebrate my big day. Once settled in, Aaron began to give a speech to thank everyone for being there, which then led to him getting down on one knee and proposing!
