We started the day off with Melissa and Phil seeing each other for the first time in the amphitheater at Curtis Hixon Park. As you will see, their wedding theme was "sophisticated circus" with everything being black and white with red accents. This is so them, and seriously one of the most creative weddings we've seen! The ceremony was spectacular, with balloons floating in the sky, a candle lighting ceremony, and the union of a beautiful couple under the big top of the Tampa Art Museum:-) Each part of the day had awesome surprises for their guests, during cocktail hour there were fire dancers, popcorn, cotton candy, and of course Melissa and Phil's entrance down the staircase into the reception by the Hillsborough High Big Red Drum Line. The reception decor was black and red linens with silver candleabra's that had little black and white shades, succulants, roses, red flyer wagons and matching stationary everywhere. One of my favorite details was the cake, it was a "deconstructed cake" so unique! They also had a huge red frame as backdrop for fun photos of their guests, The Bus Stop Band rocked the party and Melissa and Phil exited with sparklers onto a boat. It was a day full of memories they will never forget!! Congrats Melissa and Phil!!! xoxoxo

We had the perfect view of the Red Bull Flugtag from the 12th floor of the Marriott Waterside. Definitely entertainment while the bridal party was getting ready! Emily is a talented and creative graphic artist and she custom designed all the stationary to give there wedding a really unique and personal feel. Dave is a very funny and mischeovious one, as you will see during the ceremony and their cake cutting! I love the style and color choices of gray and yellow for the Tampa Museum of Art. On the back of Emily's program, she designed a cross word puzzle about she and David. We setup something a little different for their first look. It was in the "round" at the amphitheather in Curtis Hixon Park so we got several different views as the turned around to face each other for the first time with their bridal party watching! They are also big foodies and Mise En Place is definitely delicious. Their food stations were all of their favorite different types of cuisine. Emily surprised David with a very interesting groom's cake that is the logo of one of his favorite bands. The Lengendary JC's rocked the party and it was a totally amazing day!! Congrats Emily and David xoxoxo!

Lindsay + Ken = gorgeous couple and amazing wedding! I love Lindsay's fabulous super sparkly Jimmy Choos. Some of my favorite moments are when the bride and groom see each other for the first time, it's the best feeling to be a part of. Their ceremony was outside the Tampa Art Museum, and the reception was an evening cocktail feel with lots of lounge furniture, purple and blue uplighting, and fabulous cuisine. It was a one of those beautiful but humid evenings, when I walked outside my lenses fogged up which normally drives me insane! This time I noticed it created that filter look of twinkling lights, I didn't know that but I do now and it's a pretty cool effect. Lindsay & Ken, it was amazing!!!! xoxoxox
