{Brittany & Rick @The Florida Aquarium}

Brittany and Rick are high school sweethearts, who have been together for 8 years.  They had a beautiful "under the sea" themed elegant wedding at the Florida Aquarium!  Brittany had handmade necklaces made for each of her girls and octopus hair clips.  She wore earrings from her grandmother and a starfish necklace Rick had given her.  The blue heart sewn on her dress was made from a shirt that her grandfather used to wear.  It was extra, extra special because he was supposed to walk her down the aisle, but had recently passed away.  The reception was decorated with black linens, pops of purple and orange florals and I LOVE the center pieces.  They were glowing with jelly fish in them.  The cake had the cutest bride and groom sharks. Every Saturday night Tampa was fireworks over the river and that made for the perfect ending to their evening!!  Congrats Brittany and Rick! xoxoxo

{Kari & Trip @Rennaisance Vinoy Hotel}

Kari and Trip met in Bahrain while both serving in the Navy.  They are stationed in Annapolis, but Kari grew up in St Pete so their wedding was a destination homecoming celebration with all their friends and family!  Kari got her wedding dress from Brides Across America, which is a really awesome organization that helps our service women with their wedding gowns.  Trip’s gift to Kari was a beautiful pearl necklace and her gift to him was a GoPro for their honeymoon that is in Brazil!  Travel has been a big part of their relationship and something they love so the along with being an elegant white, black, and green color palette, they added in travel details.  There was globe as a sign in for their guests, and locations they had been on each table.  There were lots of surprises:-)  Kari gave her dad a surprise gift to change into at the reception.  It was a vest and tie in Florida Gator colors.  She also surprised her Dad when they had their first dance with half way through switching it to Twist and Shout.   One of their guests surprised them with a cake that looks exactly like Trip’s yellow lab Barney! The escort cards were placed on ornaments that were especially made for each guest.  They had the amazing time with all their friends and family it was the perfect day!!!  Congrats Kari and Trip!!! xoxox
