Dominique + Cina’s Clearwater Beach destination wedding

Back in September Nikki and Cina were married at the Hyatt Clearwater Beach.  Their destination wedding was attended by friends and family from all over.  The weekend was filled with many tears of joy and laughter.  We had such a fun time planning their wedding!  I especially enjoyed being the taste tester of the cake pops, since Nikki was not able to be here to pick out the flavors!  Here is a look back at their Amazing Day!  Thank you Jason for the beautiful pictures.  I especially love the one captured from their “First Look”.

Kristen and Alex are married!!!

What an amazing wedding!!!  Back in November we had the pleasure of coordinating Kristen and Alex’s big day!  The day started off with a beautiful ceremony at St. John the Baptist Greek Church followed by a lively, elegant reception at Higgins Hall, both locally here in Tampa.  One thing that was key in the design of the wedding was timeless and elegant.  Kristen and Alex chose a color palatte of ivory and gold with a hint of plum.  A great time was had by all!  Many thanks go out to all the vendors that made their day so special!

Lauren and Jack are married…..

I have to say it, planning Lauren and Jack’s destination wedding at The Hyatt on Clearwater Beach was a lot of fun!!!  The planning was pretty exciting, since there were a lot of surprises in store!  The wedding weekend was filled with fun things to do for the friends and family of the bride and groom, from a spa day for the girls to a golf outing for the guys.  Then on the big day, came the surprises!  It was quite a task keeping everything under wraps from both the parents and the happy couple!  The first surprise came before the ceremony, Lauren carried a Broach Bouquet instead of a traditional floral one.  It even had a locket with the couple’s motto on it as well as tiny paw prints.  Lauren is a Veterinarian, so that was a sweet personal touch.  Lauren’s mom loved her bouquet so much that Lauren surprised her with one for her to carry down the aisle.  What a great gift and keepsake!  After the ceremony on the Sky Terrace, the guests continued the party in the Belleair Beach Club and Ballroom.  For the Grand Surprise, during the reception, the Father of the Bride made a special toast to Lauren and Jack and the sky lit up with a beautiful fireworks display on the beach.  It brought tears to everyone’s eyes and was a beautiful way to end the celebration with a bang!

Thank you to all the vendors that made Lauren and Jack’s Wedding everything they could have imagined and then some…..
