Amanda and Christopher focused on keeping their waterfront St. Petersburg wedding intimate, without uninvited observers.
“Privacy was important. I wanted a beach wedding, and it took me along time for me to accept that I wasn’t going to be able to have a private wedding on the beach,” the bride explained. “I didn’t want multiple weddings happening at the same time as mine or kids running around in bathing suits.”
With a private, waterfront St. Petersburg wedding venue selected, the Tampa couple hosted a pastel pink, gold and cream wedding featuring a draped ceremony arch, long feasting tables with pink linens, gold chiavari chairs from Signature Event Rentals and soft uplighting by Nature Coast Entertainment Services LLC.
In keeping with the theme of their environmentally conscious wedding venue, the bride and groom incorporated natural elements such as succulents and twigs into their decor.
To assist with vendor recommendations and keep their wedding day stress-free Amanda and Christopher hired St. Petersburg wedding planner Special Moments Event Planning.
“Tammy is the best in the business and made our wedding day and all the events beforehand run smoothly. I couldn’t imagine not having her by my side every step of the way,” the bride gushed.
“The service I received was top notch. She provided so much insight and guidance into the world of weddings that I truly feel we could not have managed without her.”
What did you look for in a wedding planner?
Tammy [of Special Moments Event Planning] was referred to me by a co-worker; the service I received was top notch. Tammy is the best in the business and made our wedding day and all the events beforehand run smoothly. I couldn’t imagine not having her by my side every step of the way. She provided so much insight and guidance into the world of weddings that I truly feel we could not have managed without her.
What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay couples?
Don’t plan your wedding without Tammy!
