Allison and Pete's intimate Clearwater wedding featured an outdoor ceremony under a greenery-filled arch with vintage lounge seating and reception under the stars filled with wooden elements, romantic colors, and a mixture of string lighting and candlelight.
“Our theme had some bohemian touches mixed with traditional. Our wedding planners and vendors really put together a beautiful experience that spoke to both of us.” the bride explained. “Our colors were navy blue, burgundy, and gold. Because the wedding was in the winter, we wanted rich, warm colors.”
The St. Pete couple put the focus of their 19-person micro wedding on hosting an intimate celebration that was as equally beautiful as it was enjoyable.
“We are both pretty laid back. Our personalities really came through in our vows and the overall theme of an easy-going evening,” Allison shared. “We wanted to have really good food and a relaxing enjoyable evening, while also enabling our guests to feel safe during the pandemic.”
To provide a memorable experience for their December nuptials, the bride and groom enlisted the help of a respected Tampa Bay wedding planning team who specializes in creating one-of-kind, personalized events.
“We looked for someone who would listen to our needs but also think of all the little details that make a wedding special. We found Parties A'La Carte was highly reviewed online and really hit it off upon meeting them. They were great!” the bride beamed.
Looking back, one of the most memorable moments for the couple was the attendance of a special guest.
“Our son, who was seven months old at the time, was able to be in attendance when Pete and I were married. While he won't remember it, having him there was really special,” the bride reminisced.
