{Michelle & Eric @ Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club}

Michelle & Eric decided to have a morning brunch wedding so they could take their guests with them on a cruise to Cuba!  Michelle had 2 different gowns, a princess dress for the ceremony and super cute white party dress for the reception.  I love the jewelry she wore in her hair and the lavender and wine bridesmaids dresses with pink and white bouquets.  Their ceremony was on the patio overlooking the golf course as they exchanged vows and became the official Mr. & Mrs. Stewart!  Their reception was decorated with light pink, white, and greenery.  Michelle and Eric gave each of their bridal party members a huge hug before they made their entrance.  There was a spread of waffles, bacon, omelette station, and pretty much every breakfast food you could imagine.  Eric toasted to all their favorite people being there to celebrate with them on what was a truly beautiful morning!  Congrats Michelle & Eric, hope you had an amazing cruise!  xoxoxo

{Angell & Jared @ Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club}

Angell and Jared's wedding style was full of gorgeous florals and personal details.  Angell has a self proclaimed Etsy obsession which made her details on point:-) She had hand engraved hangers for each of the girls dresses, and custom champagne flutes.  Angell is an only child and when Jared's brother brought his gift for Angell to open, she hugged him she said "now I have a brother!:-)".  When she opened the beautiful earrings and necklace the girls all said "he went to Jared's" which he did lol.  Angell gave him a pocket watch engraved with their initials. The covered patio at Tampa Palms allowed them to still be outside even though it was a rainy day, which is good luck of course!  They wrote personal vows to each other and there was not a dry eye in the audience.  They did a rope type ceremony where they tied a fisherman's knot because it is said to be the strongest.  Angell was prepared for the weather, and the clear umbrellas made for some awesome photos with the raindrops lit by off camera flash.  The incorporated their love for wine in the reception decor.  They had Keel and Curley wine bottles as vases on their escort card table with custom engraved corks for their guests to take home.  There was a hint of bling on their table numbers, head table, and the entire cake was sparkly!  The centerpieces were just plain stunning.  Their maid of honor and best man gave the sweetest toasts and then Angell changed into cute sparkly flats to dance the night away.  They ended the night perfectly with the last dance being just the 2 of them to have a few minutes to soak it all in before exiting through sparklers!  Congrats Angell & Jared!!

{Alyssa & Josh @Tampa Palms Country Club}

Alyssa and Josh’s wedding style was subtle fall accents and a red, orange and gold color palette.  Alyssa looked just plain gorgeous in her layered, organza gown with a crystal sash and feather hairpiece.  The ceremony was under the verandah at Tampa Palms decorated with a white runner, lanterns and coordinating florals.  During the ceremony they did the wine ceremony, which symbolizes to lives blending together as one.  Alyssa’s mom and Josh’s mom each poured a glass of wine into a single glass for them to then serve each other.  Josh stomped on the glass (a different one of courseJ and they were officially Mr. & Mrs. Culp.   The bridesmaids red dresses with the red and yellow looked gorgeous against the golf course backdrop!  Their reception was decorated with alternating tall and short golf candelabras and vases with orange linens and a carmel apple as the favor.  Each of their parents did a little mini toast to Alyssa and Josh, which was so sweet to hear the love and happiness their parents have for them!  Then they danced until they couldn’t anymore! Congrats Alyssa & Josh!! xoxoxo

{Melissa & Brian @ Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club}

First off, can we say how stunningly gorgeous Melissa looked in her blush gown?  Brian looked pretty handsome in his coordinating blue suit and pink tie:-)  Their wedding was full of very fun, and personal details which we absolutely love!  They had gift bags waiting for their guests at the hotel that had oranges, since Brian is from Florida, and Buckeye's (the chocolate and peanut butter kind), since Melissa is from Ohio.  Melissa's something old was her grandmother's diamond heart ring that she wore on her right hand. Something borrowed was a bracelet from her mother in law.  Something blue was an embroidered handkerchief and something new was her jewelry and shoes. They didn't see each other before the ceremony but read notes to each other and opened gifts. Brian gave her Michael Kors flip flops and jokingly wrote in the note…just in case you forget your new initials…MK for Melissa Kensrue :) She gave him a blue Kenneth Cole watch to match his suit.  Melissa's bouquet had a pendant from her Maid of Honor with the lyrics to her favorite Hillsong Song. We had an impromptu first look with Melissa's Dad. He was coming up to the bridal suite to see his little girl and I just so happened to catch him before he saw Melissa.  It was one of our favorite moments of the day and beyond sweet. Brian and Melissa's Pastor, Wes, married them under the patio at Tampa Palms with the beautiful view of the golf course. When they had their first kiss one of the little flower girls had the best reaction! The reception decor was pink, gray, and navy with lots of candles and mercury glass. Brian's sister-in-law, Julie, is a NY Pastry chef and made the macron favors. There were some special escort cards that were included at the reception.  Place cards for Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca (for Brian's love of Star Wars:-), their dog Selene, and some of their favorite spots were mixed in with all of their guests cards. Alessi Bakery created their cupcake tower and they made a special cupcake for Brian with all of their icing flavors because during the tasting her tried every flavor, as he should!  Melissa told us they had several events leading up to the day of the wedding, and their whole goal was investing in family, friends, and love. That really was the perfect theme to celebrate their marriage!  Congrats Melissa and Brian it was truly amazing!!! xoxox
