Mary and Mike were married on Friday at the Westin Tampa Harbour Island. They are friends with Mandy and Jim (click here to see their wedding on the blog) whose 1 year anniversary is this Saturday! Mandy and Jim just had a baby girl so they have many blessings to celebrate during their first year of marriage. Happy Anniversary!
When dad met Mary and Mike early this year, they had their adorable baby son with them. When dad saw them on Friday, their son was now a toddler! He looked so cute in his bow tie. The wedding had a fun music theme, with rose petal cones made out of sheet music, tables named after musicians such as Dave Matthews, Peter Gabriel, and Nat King Cole, and admission tickets for each guest to give to ushers to be seated at the reception. The wedding colors were black and white with green to brighten it up and it came together to decorate the reception room beautifully with white hanging paper lanterns, black linens, and green centerpieces.
Debbie of Champagne Wishes was the florist and mom thinks she did an awesome job with the bride’s bouquet. Ben from Grant Hemond always has tons of energy and he rocked the reception. Dad likes working with him. A Piece of Cake made the couple’s unique and creative cake. Mary and Mike had a fun first dance and worked with Olga of You by OG for the choreography.
Congratulations Mary and Mike! Enjoy your Disney honeymoon!!
It was raining that morning so the wedding was moved inside, but the couple waited and the rain eventually stopped. They ended up with their outdoor ceremony by the water but the late start had it starting just after sunset.
Mary changed to a fun black dress for her first dance, then changed back to her gown for the rest of the reception.
