All Eyes Were On Kelly and Ryan
All eyes were on Kelly and Ryan during their Tampa Bay wedding, and it was no surprise to our Special Moments Event Planning team. This couple is sweet and fun, and so are all of the people who surrounded them on their wedding day.
The morning was all about the details. The bride and groom-to-be each spent the morning with their wedding party and family.
As they chose not to see each other before the wedding ceremony, each took time for some portraits and photos with their wedding party and family.
It’s About The Bride and Groom
Outside on the hotel’s terrace, all the details were in place for the beautiful waterfront wedding ceremony. The space was set with white garden chairs lining a custom aisle runner; at the end of the aisle stood two white columns with beautiful floral arrangements.
With family and friends gathered, Ryan got a little emotional as his bride-to-be made her entrance.
The couple exchanged their wedding vows in a sweet wedding ceremony before sealing their vows with a kiss and making their exit under a shower of bubbles.
Cocktails and a Little Fun
Wedding guests enjoyed cocktail hour inside Blu Vu with an open bar and delicious light bites, including Mini Crab Cakes, Grilled Chicken Satay with Chili Sauce, and Mini Beef Wellingtons.
Meanwhile, the newlyweds and their wedding party took some time for some fun photos – sorry, Ryan, we couldn’t resist.
Dinner and Dancing
With its waterfront views, the Caribbean Ballroom was set with clear Chivari chairs and tables with silver chargers and beautiful floral centerpieces.
After the wedding party’s introductions, the new Mr. And Mrs. took to the dancefloor for their first dance as husband and wife, followed by several parent dances.
Ryan welcomed the couple’s family and friends before everyone enjoyed a delicious buffet reception and several touching toasts.
Kelly and Ryan cut their beautiful three-tiered wedding cake before inviting all of their guests to the dancefloor for the rest of the evening.
Congratulations, Kelly and Ryan. We’re glad to see you enjoyed every special moment of your day.
