Green, Gold, and White Plant City Wedding | Wishing Well Barn

Plant City Wedding | Wishing Well Barn Wedding

Kaity and Mike’s Plant City wedding didn’t revolve around a particular theme; instead, it focused on the couple’s individual personalties.

“Our wedding was folksy, celtic, indie badassness,” the bride shared. “We chose it because of my intense Irish background and my wanting to tribute that whilst paying the attention to Mike and my styles. We stopped focusing on one theme and started focusing on what we liked and what worked well together.”

The green, gold and white wedding colors were homage to bride’s Irish roots.

“My maiden name is Doyle; it doesn’t get more Irish than that and heritage is important to me,” Kaity explained. “Mike is really easy going, and he didn’t want an uptight wedding. We wanted something fun and laid back, with some tradition mixed in.”


The Fort Lauderdale couple made the wedding guests experience a top priority, which included lots of smiles and action on the dance floor.

“I just wanted a party with my friends dancing, my family laughing and everything in between. Fun was the absolute most important element” the bride beamed.

While the night was focused on the Kaity and Mike, the bride’s father momentarily stole show during the wedding reception.

“My father and I had a choreographed dance. We did a mashup of I Loved her First by Heartland, followed by My Girl by The Temptations, then The Twist by Chubby Checker and lastly I taught my Dad how to do The Wobble by V.I.C.,” the bride shared.

Looking back, one of the bride’s most memorable moments took place just before the ceremony.

“Michael was walking down to take his place in front of everyone, and I peaked out of the cottage window just in time to see him. After being the most calm, cool and collected bride that ever lived, I cried. I cried deeply and hurriedly, because I was soon to walk! I was so overwhelmed with my love for him,” Kaity reminisced.

How would you describe your theme?
Folksy, Celtic, indie badassness. We chose it because of my intense Irish background and my wanting to tribute that whilst paying the attention to Mike and my styles. We aren’t the burlap and lace couple, but we loved the barn in which we had our wedding. We aren’t an “anything particular” couple; we are just us, and we stopped focusing on one theme and started focusing on what we liked and what worked well together.

What were your colors?
Green, gold and white, to celebrate my Irish heritage.

The Proposal:
First off let me just tell you that my husband is a sap. He’s sensitive, kind and loves the mushy hallmarks. However, the day he proposed was on our one-year anniversary of dating, and he was a royal jerk all day! On our way to our beautiful hotel for dinner and romance, Mike stopped by the mall to get me a new top for dinner. While I was looking at clothes, he went and bought me some things, came back with them gift wrapped and told me that he just got my anniversary present, followed by some cheap card that said “I Love You” in huge bubble letters. It was so off putting that later that night when he proposed on the balcony of our ocean suite under moonlight and stars, I was so overwhelmed I could only cry and couldn’t even get the words “YES” out right away.

What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay Brides?
Remember to enjoy the planning as much as possible. There was a point I needed to remember what all the stress was for, that it was a celebration and giant party to celebrate the love I share with my husband.
