Alissa and Erik were married at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel!  Jason was happy to join them on their special day.   Before the ceremony the bride and groom had a First Look.  There was a bit of rain so they stayed inside the hotel for pictures but had a fun time with their wedding party as they looked forward to the ceremony.

Along the aisle at the ceremony, little teacups held flowers and hung from chairs with ribbon.  There was a personalized unity candle and aisle runner with the couple’s names and wedding date.  It was great to see family incorporated in the ceremony!

The DJ at the reception was Ben from Grant Hemond.  The satin linens looked elegant, especially with place settings that included silver chargers and some bling for the napkin rings!  The table numbers and some candle holders also had rhinestones, and the centerpieces had hanging crystals.

Congratulations to Alissa and Erik!  Thanks for having us as part of the wedding team!

Allysa and Dusten are really each other’s best friends, and that made their wedding day truly special!   The wedding was held at the Magnolia Building.  The couple’s wedding team included Flowers by Edith, Simply Southern Catering, Cakes by Maggie and a DJ from Graingertainment.

Allysa’s gown (a Sophia Tolli) was stunning and fit her perfectly.  And her hair was Pinterest worthy!  The sides softly twisted into low, big curls in the back and there was a bit of a lift on top.  Her whole look was gorgeous!

At the reception, guests were treated to pink cotton candy from Got Candy & More which was displayed in a pretty pink wooden wagon.  The centerpieces were pink flowers and the table numbers were displayed on glittery silver bottles with a pink ribbon at the top.  The bride’s mom put together the decorations and she did a fantastic job!

The bride and groom are so in love, and the wedding day was a celebration of the history of their relationship and the excitement of their future together.  It was wonderful to be part of it and capture these memories!  They are a beautiful couple and I have so many favorites from their pictures!  Congratulations newlyweds!RLWaa0716RLWab0716RLWac0716RLWad0716RLWae0716RLWaf0716RLWag0716RLWah0716RLWai0716RLWaj0716RLWak0716RLWal0716RLWba0716RLWbb0716RLWbc0716RLWbd0716RLWbe0716RLWbf0716RLWbg0716RLWbh0716RLWca0716RLWcb0716RLWcc0716RLWcd0716RLWce0716RLWcf0716RLWcg0716RLWch0716RLWci0716RLWcj0716RLWck0716RLWcl0716RLWcm0716RLWcn0716RLWco0716RLWcp0716RLWcq0716RLWcr0716RLWcs0716RLWct0716

Congratulations to newlyweds Meredith and Nick!  They were married at the South Florida Museum.  The venue just felt like Florida to them and they had it in mind for their wedding before they were even engaged.

Meredith had a classic bridal updo.  Her hair and makeup was done by a stylist from IMG Academy.  She definitely knew what look she wanted – her gown was the first one she had tried on when gown shopping!

Ms. Scarlett’s Flowers was the florist for the wedding.  Meredith’s bouquet was even more special because the lace around it was lace from her mother’s veil.  Nick was not left out of things passed down from family members.  His ring was made from a necklace given to him by his grandmother.  I love when weddings include such special family items!  It was obvious that family was important to the bride and groom.  Their officiant was Rev. Tony Spencer of the First Baptist Church, Forest City NC.  He is also Meredith’s dad!

Cheryl from Nellie’s Deli was the catering manager for the wedding and it was great working with her.  Cakes by Ron made the wedding cake.  The newlyweds had the laid back, classic wedding that they were hoping for and everyone enjoyed celebrating with the happy couple!
