{Caroline & Greg @ Hollywood Venue Tampa}

Caroline and Greg had the most unique and awesome color palette, lemon yellow and Kelly green! Caroline and her bridesmaids all wore Converse, the girls’ were green and Caroline’s were sparkly silver with tulle laces.  Zoe, one of her bridesmaids, has the sweetest little 1 month old baby girl.  She wore a yellow and white dress that was actually what Zoe came home in from the hospital when she was a baby and it matched perfectly!   Caroline and Greg did their first look in downtown Dunedin because it’s one of their favorite places and just so them. He was just plain in awe of his gorgeous bride when he saw her during their first look. I don't think he stopped smiling from that moment on. Caroline had a really sweet surprise for Greg, she got his Father’s West Point pin from his mom, and had it attached to his boutonniere. We found a great spot where the buildings were actually painted to coordinate with the bridal party color schemeJ Their ceremony was on the beach at Honeymoon Island and it was a beautiful cloudy evening for sunset photos!  They incorporated lots of really fun personal details and things they love, which we always love! Greg wore R2-D2 with a belt buckle that says "Bazinga" from their favorite show "Big Bang Theory". Caroline and Greg are both forensic scientists and their table names were actually the first 13 elements of the periodic table! Their sign in was a custom Jenga for each of their guests to sign each piece. The cake sat on a clear acrylic base that was filled with Skittles, which was actually a game!  Each of their guests could guess the number of skittles and the winner got ALL THE SKITTLES over 14,000 is what we heard! They had life size cut outs of characters from the Big Bang Theory for guests to take photos with and our favorite part…AN ICE CREAM TRUCK!! Revolution Ice Cream was parked out front for all the guests to get a scoop…or three :) We know first hand…it was delicious. Congrats Caroline and Greg it was truly awesome!!!!  xoxox EndFragmentVenue | Hollywood Venue | Florist | Carrollwood Florist | Cake | A Piece of Cake | Hair and Makeup | Femme Okoi | DJ | DJ Jason and Associates | Officiant | Michael DePrisco | Ice Cream Truck | Revolution Ice Cream

{Gianna & Cody}

Beautiful, elegant, and so unique. I love the style of Gianna and Cody's wedding because I actually can't put my finger on a word to describe it.  Gianna's gown was so beautiful with long sleeves and an open back.  The girls wore all different jewel toned dresses and the boys were in gray suits and Cody in Navy. The guys each wore awesome super hero socks each with a cape or wings!  Cody and Gianna didn't see each other beforehand, but from behind a door Cody said a prayer to start their day with the right focus. The location has a very interesting story as well. Jake English, who was also their officiant, actually grew up on this property and then had the opportunity to purchase it and build a house here. The setting was just stunning.  Before the ceremony Gianna's dad opened the door to see her for the first time before walking her down the aisle and it was such a sweet moment.  There was a chair and a settee setup in the front. On his way up the aisle Cody's step-mom gave him a rose and he set it on the chair that had a photo of he and his mother that had passed away, the tears were definitely flowing. They did a foot washing ceremony where Pastor Jake read from John 13:14. Gianna and Cody washed each other's foot as a sign of humility, devotion, and complete surrender to each other. The reception was all outside under lanterns and stringed lights.  Vignettes with white and green florals in sliver bowls, antiques, lace overlays, and candelabra's decorated the lawn.  It was extra fun because 3 of our other couples were there, Tiffany & Phil, Mariah & Tyler, and Ryan representing for he and Moira since she had to work. It was so nice seeing them!  There was a chill in the air, but perfect for a campfire, jackets & shawls, and dancing under the stars.  Gianna & Cody exit-ed into a 1961 Vintage Rolls Royce and are enjoying their honeymoon in St. Kitts!  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs!!! xoxoxo
