Glamorous Red and Blush Pink South Tampa Wedding | Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club

 

Wedding Flea Tampa Bridal Show May 2018
Stacy and Patrick’s glamorous South Tampa wedding featured the perfect combination of glitz and glamour to complement their winter nuptials. The couple opted for a dark red, rose gold and a blush pink color palette to complement their venue’s holiday decor.

“Due to our wedding date being in December, we were obligated to work with ‘holiday’ colors,” the bride explained. “I have always loved the shiny, metallic sequin dresses worn by bridesmaids, as I felt they look not only royal, but very elegant. I therefore, chose to incorporate the colors of dark red and garnet within the theme to coincide with my blush pink wedding gown.”

The bride was an avid Marry Me Tampa Bay reader and looked to our local, real wedding inspiration to develop her own sense of style.

“Marry Me Tampa Bay provided assistance and help regarding our entire wedding process. I found it particularly useful in choosing wedding flower arrangements as well as appropriate color blocks,” Stacy shared.

The South Tampa couple knew that honoring their roots, including marrying in the church they both grew up in was a priority for their wedding day.

“It was most important that our family and friends were able to share in our vows,” the bride revealed. “Additionally, having a faith-based in the Catholic religion, it was very special to marry within a church that we both grew up in.”

Searching for a South Tampa wedding photographer who could easily build a connection with both the bride and groom, the couple hired Andi Diamond Photography.

“During our initial meeting, Patrick and I both immediately connected to Andi. She was not only easy to talk to but, also extremely genuine and down to earth,” Stacy gushed. “She also listened to my wishes, as well as those of Patrick’s, taking into account constraints, as well as concerns that we both had.”

The bride’s effortless wedding day beauty look created by Tampa Bay hair and makeup team Michele Renee the Studio, consisted of a glamorous updo with bun and a bold lip that complemented her blush pink wedding gown.

“Having several friends and close contacts within the cosmetic dermatology world, I am very particular when it comes to my face especially. Every girl wants to have and show off flawless skin, but also look striking and camera ready,” the bride explained. “Michele Renee The Studio was able to capture my vision to a ‘T’. Michele also was very patient, understanding and easy to work with. I did attend several trial sessions, for which I was very thankful for, before landing my ideal look. I was blow away with the precision and expertise her studio provided to me!”

In coordination with her wedding theme, the bride allowed her girls to select versatile rose gold sequin dresses from Bella Bridesmaids Tampa to embrace the glamour of the holiday season.

“I felt that this was both holiday attire, as well as very striking and would be captured well in photos,” Stacy shared. “Bella Bridesmaids was able to work with my bridesmaids, even those in other locations outside of Tampa due to their alternate locations. Their online services were also of great assistance for ordering and coordinating arrival times with appropriate deadlines for wedding festivities.”

Looking back on their wedding day, the bride’s most cherished memory was kicking off their celebration.

“Our most memorable moment was during our wedding party introduction at the reception. This was a time, post-wedding vows, when we were able to let loose a little and celebrate the presence of our loved ones and friends,” the bride reminisced.

The Proposal:
On a quiet Friday evening during happy hour on the back patio of our very first home together, Patrick asked me to marry him. He prepared a lovely cheese and charcuterie platter complete with my favorite craft beer selection and Sauvignon Blanc wine. With the help of Sylvester, our Persian cat, and a little black box tied around his neck, we got engaged. This quite intimate setting was completely perfect!

As a Christmas gift after our engagement, Patrick assisted in arranging a full “say yes to the dress” experience at Atlanta, Georgia’s Bridals by Lori. He not only secured a wedding dress shopping appointment, but also booked flights and hotel accommodations for my mother and grandmother. I was able to purchase a Lazaro dress during this visit, making the experience that much more special.

How would you describe your theme/wedding design inspiration?
Due to our wedding date being in December, we were obligated to work with “holiday” colors. I have always loved the shiny, metallic sequin dresses worn by bridesmaids, as I felt they look not only royal, but very elegant. I therefore, chose to incorporate the colors of dark red and garnet within the theme to coincide with my blush wedding gown.

What were your colors?
I was obligated to work with a holiday theme as my venues were both decorated in preparation for Christmas. Therefore, I opted to utilize both dark red, rose gold and blush colors to complement these constraints.
