{Alicia & Donald @ The Florida Aquarium}

Alecia and Donald are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet.  Their entire wedding day emanated how much they love each other and it was truly amazing to capture their story.  Some of my favorite moments were with Alecia and her mom while she was getting in her beautiful gown.  Just the way she looked at Alecia with so much love and happiness, I think it gets me even more because I have 2 daughters:-)  Once she was totally ready we opened the door so her bridesmaids could see her in her gorgeous gown.  Donald sent a little gift over that was a surprise diamond tennis bracelet that was the perfect finishing touch.  Their ceremony was in front of the coral reef at the Florida Aquarium.  They had a couple surprises up their sleeve to make the ceremony extra amazing.  Once the processional was over and Donald got to see his bride, Alecia's aunt gave her, her grandmother's handkerchief and they had a bell they practiced ringing for when things aren't easy.  Just before they were announced as the official Mr. & Mrs. Cannon the tank filled with bubbles, which is a brand new thing at the Aquarium and such a dramatic backdrop.  They flipped the reception into an aqua lit setting with white florals and linens with sand dollar place cards and silver chivaris.  Alecia and Donald entered with a white boa and fun glasses and before we knew it they were being sent off with sparklers out front.  Congrats you guys it was flawless and amazing!!! xoxox

{Nicole & David @ Westin Harbour Island}

Nicole and David are a fun-loving and energetic couple who's love and zest for life can be felt by anyone in their company!  They live in New York City, but decided to have their wedding in warm and sunny Tampa because David grew up here.  David a Nicole's closest friends and family traveled from all over to be part of the festivities!  We did a first look with them before the Ketubah signing, and David was absolutely stunned with how beautiful Nicole looked.  His reaction was the sweetest. The reception was beautiful and luxurious, mirroring the atmosphere of an upscale downtown club. From the white leather lounge chairs, to the crystals hanging from floor to ceiling, the room was gorgeous.  Cory, from Grant Hemond, had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening.  The love this couple has for one another is easy to see in the way they look at each other, David said that "Nicole is the best part of each day for him, his best friend and love."  They had a dream team of wedding "friendors" we got to work with that made everything as beautiful as it looks!  Congrats Nicole and David! xoxoxo

{Christina + Adam @Westin Harbour Island}

Adam is from Canada and all his family flew in to celebrate he and Christina's special day.  You know all those fun hangers that spell different things, Christina's dad actually made those for her and all the bridemaids!  Their gifts to their bridal party were champagne flutes for the girls with their purple dresses on them and beer glasses for the boys with their names or nicknames on them:-)  Adam's grandpa officiated the ceremony and officially married them!  Purple and pink with lanterns and gorgeous tall center pieces.  I love that location with the waterfront, downtown Tampa, and the awesome street lights. The entire day was awesome and so much fun!  Congrats Christina and Adam!!!  xoxoxo

{Allison + Patrick}

Allie and Patrick’s wedding had so many unqiue and personal details.  It really was a labor of love by them and their friends and family.  The centerpieces and bouquets were inspired by English gardens and each table number was a different flower picture that Allie had taken from different places in the world. Allie’s stepmom hand-quilted the ring bearer’s pillow and table runners.  The menu, napkin, invitation and save the dates were custom designed by a friend of the Allie and Patrick, and illustrated by Allie’s sister. Congrats Allie and Patrick!!
