Barbara and Joe were so sweet! When we initially started planning, Barbara was nervous and didn’t know where to start. At our first meeting, we sat down and started putting the pieces together. From there on, we brought their dream wedding vision to reality. Barbara wanted to incorporate both Deep Red and Purple, which is a pretty vibrant color combination, (which I love when brides pick bold colors to work with!) Instead of just using neutral tone linens we brought in a deep red and kept the floral in the more blush and light creams. One of my favorite additions to the party was adding a percussion player alongside the DJ. That added a “live” music feel without the larger expense of a full sized band. Another special touch was the Dove Release at the end of the ceremony which symbolizes true love!
Thank you Life Long Studios and Allure Cinema for capturing their beautiful day!
Jen and Blake were married on a gorgeous October day at Davis Islands Garden Club in Tampa, Florida. I had been working with Jen and her family for over a year planning the big day. It was so nice to see everything come together! My favorite detail was the hint of succulents in the invitations to the centerpieces and accents on the wedding cake. It was a beautiful garden wedding! Everything looked amazing and was just what she had envisioned. Kuddos to Marissa Moss Photography for capturing the details!
Jody and Thomas were married back in February. Their wedding had a “New York” meets “Tampa” theme. Jody chose a color palate of ivory, orange and green for the wedding! Something that you don’t see too often. Alexis with 2 Birds designed centerpieces to compliment the surroundings of the Tampa garden club and gave the event a “Southern” feel. Another great addition to their reception, was the beer that was served to the guests. Craft Beer plays a big part in their lives, with Thomas being the Brand Ambassador for The Florida Beer Company, he hand-picked the brews for the Reception. The couple actually crafted their own beer in honor of their beloved 4-legged friend Grover! Jody and Thomas were so much fun to work with and it was great to see all of their personal touches the day of the wedding!
Last month we had the pleasure of planning Karina and VJ’s beautiful wedding at the Salvador Dali Museum. Their ceremony took place overlooking the bay at sunset and the wedding reception was held in the garden of the museum. Karina wanted a romantic feel to her wedding in the colors of copper, gold, eggplant, and a touch of burnt orange. They even had flamenco dancers entertaining the guests while they ate dinner! Take a peek at some of the photos we received from Carrie Wildes.
