Marry Me Tampa Bay | Isabel O’Neil Bridal Fashion Show 2018

Every October, Tampa Bay bridal shops flock to New York City for Bridal Fashion Week, and since that isn’t open to the public, we partnered with Isabel O’Neil Bridal to bring high-end couture fashion to Tampa.

This year’s epic Marry Me Tampa Bay/Isabel O’Neil Bridal fashion show took place at the historic wedding venue, Le Meridien, located in downtown Tampa.

For our third annual wedding fashion show, Tampa Bay bridal couture boutique Isabel O’Neil Bridal delighted us with jaw-dropping gowns featuring gorgeous sheath underlays, sequin and beaded details, and hints of lace. Tampa Bay wedding hair and makeup team Michele Renee The Studio transformed our beautiful models with runway chic hair styles, with accentuated cheekbones and dramatic eye makeup.

With their poolside patio set for welcoming guests, Le Meridien provided the perfect setting for a first impression for show attendees as they arrived. Chic hors-d’oeuvres and cocktails, and a GIF booth from ShutterBooth Tampa entertained our fashionistas before touring Le Meridien, which was previously a federal courthouse. Attendees learned about the rich history of this former historic landmark by the Le Meridien wedding team. As guests arrived at the ballroom, Tampa Bay DJ Spark Weddings filled the space with a high energy playlist to set the atmosphere for our epic fashion show.

Tampa Bay wedding planner Love Lee Lane coordinated the logistics and design of the event with chic lounge furniture rentals from A Chair Affair and clear chiavari chairs from Kate Ryan Event Rentals. The modern chairs and aisle lighting transformed the historic ballroom into a modern runaway.

Tampa Bay wedding photographer Lifelong Photography Studios captured every beautiful detail of the gorgeous dresses, while videographer Kemari Lyn Films created a cinematic film to showcase the excitement of the evening.

As the grand finale kicked off with the models making their last strut down the runway, guests were surprised with an epic sparkler fountain from Spark Weddings, which are fire-free sparklers safe for indoor use. Guests left with an even sweeter ending to the night with gorgeous hand-painted wedding dress cookies from Alessi Bakeries.
