Romantic, Vintage Pastel Green, Pink and White Wedding | The Tampa Club

Romantic, Vintage Pastel Green, Pink and White Wedding | Tampa Club Wedding

Christen and Matt’s downtown Tampa wedding was inspired by the wedding date, which happened the be the first day of Spring.

“Our theme was a mixture of a romantic and vintage, and my colors were pastel green, petal pink and white,” the bride explained. “We wanted to incorporate the time of the year, as well as the atmosphere of the venue.”

Although the groom was moved to Nashville, TN just after the proposal, the Tampa bride chose to host their wedding in the city the pair met. The couple married at South Tampa’s Bayshore Baptist Church.

“It important to have our ceremony in a church because that meant a lot to the both of us,” Christen explained. “During the wedding ceremony we incorporated Filipino traditions to honor Matt’s heritage.”

Afterwards, the couple celebrated 41 stories in the sky, overlooking Tampa Bay at downtown Tampa wedding venue, The Tampa Club.

The Tampa Club’s staff was very attentive to everyone’s needs, and the food was delicious!” the bride gushed.

To capture every moment, Christen and Matt hired Tampa wedding photographer Kristen Marie Photography.

“I was looking for a photographer who captured each individual moment and took quality photographs,” the bride shared. “Kristen was easy going and really listened to what I was looking for in quality photos.”

Looking back, one of the bride’s unforgettable parts of her wedding day took place before she walked down the aisle.

“One of our most memorable moments was our first look. It was nice to take a breath and just share a moment with each other before the ceremony,” Christen reminisced.

The Proposal:
Matt had recently moved to Nashville, TN for a new job, and I came up for a visit. He decided to propose in the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, however, a 60% chance of thunderstorms and another event planned in the envisioned proposal spot made the set up a little more difficult. Luckily after a break in the sky and a last minute location change within the garden, Matt got down on one knee and popped the question. I was surprised and ultimately said “Yes,” but being the traditional girl that I am, the first words to come out of my mouth were, “So you asked my dad, right?”

What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
I was looking for a photographer who captured each individual moment and took quality photographs. Kristen was easy going and really listened to what I was looking for in quality photos. Her shooting style was non-traditional.

Our theme was a mixture of a romantic and vintage. We wanted to incorporate the time of the year, which happened to be the first day of spring, as well as the atmosphere of the venue.

What were your wedding colors?
My colors were pastel green, petal pink and white. I chose those particular colors because they have a soft, romantic look.
