Heather and Joe's love of birds and the outdoors inspired their garden themed waterfront Tampa wedding. Shades of coral and malibu brought vibrant colors of springtime into their decor and accented the greenery of their Tampa wedding venue.
“We wanted to ensure that the day was ours and not what someone else wanted it to be. We wanted an outdoor wedding with a tree as a backdrop; one with a low hanging branch that presented natural beauty,” the Tampa couple shared.
To complement the beauty of their natural surroundings, Heather and Joe hired Tampa wedding florist Apple Blossoms Floral Designs.
“Apple Blossoms service was amazing! When we placed the order, we forgot to get a boutonniere for the ring bearer and on our wedding day, the florist Scott quickly created one out of the spare flowers,” Heather explained.
The pair searched for a “down to earth” Tampa wedding photographer who would seamlessly shoot their big day.
“I fell in love with how Andi Diamond Photography captured other peoples' moments and memories. Andi seemed to just love doing her job. Her service was awesome; I could not have asked for a better photographer,” the bride gushed.
What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
We were looking for someone who knew how to capture the moment, who was easy to work with and the price who was not too expensive.
I fell in love with how Andi Diamond Photography captured other peoples' moments and memories. We called her and she e-mailed us a video about herself and what she wanted to accomplish with her work. Andi seemed so down to earth and to just love doing her job. Her service was awesome; I could not have asked for a better photographer.
How would you describe your theme?
Romantic outdoors and love birds. Joe and I like the outdoor tree look and love birds happen to be on the front of the wedding invitation.
What were your colors?
Coral and malibu. We chose them because we had a spring wedding and thought it would look good against the greenery and the flowers that would be in bloom.
What did you look for in a wedding florist?
We were looking for someone that was reasonably priced.
We looked into Apple Blossoms Floral Design originally because of their location and chose them because of their pricing, originality and ability to deliver to the venue. Their service was amazing! When we placed the order we forgot to get a boutonniere for the ring bearer and on our wedding day, the florist Scott quickly created one out of the spare flowers he used to make the others.

After spending many years together, Lauren and Tom traveled from Pennsylvania for their Clearwater destination wedding.
The couple chose a waterfront Clearwater wedding aboard the Yacht Sensation so that their guests could enjoy a classic and iconic Florida sunset, as well as views of the city from the water. Their nautical themed decor included classic maritime shades of navy blue and white, sea shells and anchor accents.
One special moment from the couple's wedding day included a butterfly release in loving memory of the bride's late sister. During the couples' vows, one butterfly lingered a little longer than the rest, showing a sign from up above and blessing the marriage.
Clearwater wedding photographer Jillian Joseph Photography was on hand to capture all of the pair's intimate and memorable moments.
