Catherine and Matthew’s Tampa Bay Wedding

Catherine and Matthew are too cute for words. Except for Matthew seeing Catherine for the first time, they both smiled ear to ear all day!



Their mass was personal and loving, and their reception reflected the blues and textures of shimmering water. The day was simple, elegant, and full of love.


Let’s Get The Party Started

For Catherine and the ladies, the day started with hair and makeup, a little bubbly, lots of detail photos, and getting dressed.



The Guys Too!

Matthew and the guys hung out, dressed, and headed off for some photos before the wedding ceremony.



With This Ring

With everyone in place, it was time for the bride’s entrance. Catherine made her way down the aisle, escorted by her father.

Matthew was overwhelmed by emotion seeing his bride-to-be for the first time.



The couple exchanged rings and sealed their vows with a kiss. The ceremony was beautiful, and you could feel the love of family and friends.






Smile For The Camera

While family and friends enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the newlyweds and their wedding party took advantage of the beautiful scenery for photos.



Dinner and Dancing

The venue was set with tables draped in soft blue linens, simple, elegant centerpieces, and lots of candles. Each place setting was set with a delicious chocolate wedding favor and a place card with their entree selection.

The elegantly draped ceiling and twinkling lights gave the ballroom a really romantic feel.

Following introductions, the newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance. Parent dances were next before everyone enjoyed a fantastic dinner, toasts, and lots of dancing.



Catherine and Matthew took time away from the dance floor for their cake-cutting, returning to the dance floor for a few more dances before the end of the night.
