Purple, Downtown Tampa Wedding | The Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Allison and Pete’s downtown Tampa wedding featured purple bow ties, amazing water views and lots of confetti.

“We definitely wanted to be downtown and have the cocktail hour on the Hillsborough River. We knew being on the river regardless of the weather would be an amazing feature at our wedding,“ the bride shared. “What The Straz Center for the Performing Arts offered fit everything we needed at a reasonable price for our 160 guests. They went above and beyond so we could enjoy our wedding; it was so elegant.”

The entertainment factor was an important part of the Tampa couple’s wedding, especially with guests attending from all over the country.

“We knew we would enjoy the day, but really wanted to make sure our guests had a great time. We certainly achieved that part,” Allison gushed. “Our photographer [Ashlee Hamon Photography] and DJ [Breezin’ Entertainment] owned it! We got so many compliments about how great they both were!”
