Everyone Should Laugh This Much On Their Wedding Day!
Our Special Moments Event Planning team has never worked with a couple who laughed and had as much fun on their wedding day as Sarah and Josh. We had so much fun working with them to create this beautiful wedding.
Tampa Bay Watch
Several weeks ago, our Wedding Venue Wednesday blog featured the beautiful Tampa Bay Watch. It was tough to write the feature without using images from this beautiful wedding. But, we knew we had their wedding feature was coming soon!
So, we thought the best way to showcase their wedding is to start with their adorable wedding preview trailer!
Breakfast, First Looks, and Blindfolds
The morning started with the wedding parties getting ready and enjoying breakfast together. The Metro Diner delivered breakfast! YUMMM!
A little later in the morning, Sarah’s bridal party had their first look at her wearing her beautiful wedding gown with lace appliques and a striking sweetheart neckline. Shortly after that, they boarded a trolley to head to Tampa Bay Watch for Sarah and Josh’s first look. But, first, they made a quick stop for Sarah to share a moment with her dad.
The next stop was to pick up Josh and his groomsmen. But, first, the guys needed to blindfold him so he wouldn’t see his bride-to-be before their first look. Yes, they made him ride the trolley without seeing Sarah!
Fabulous First Look
Yes, we have a soft spot for amazing first look photos. We love the interaction between the couple and the special moments they get to spend together with no one around. And the setting at Tampa Bay Watch was spectacular.
The Wedding Party And Some Toby Time
Following their first look, Sarah and Josh spent some time taking wedding portraits with their wedding party. We love the beautiful attire the couple selected. The contrast between the light blue bridesmaids’ dresses and the dark blue in the groomsmen’s suits was amazing against the water and the sky.
The couple also took some time for photos with their adorable fur-baby, Toby, who made an appearance for some photos and their wedding ceremony.
Waterfront Wedding Ceremony
Across the lawn, the last details were in place for the couple’s waterfront wedding ceremony. The beautiful blue color palate that began in the wedding party attire and flowers continued throughout the ceremony and reception.
A custom-designed Welcome sign and wedding programs greeted wedding guests as they arrived. A beautiful rustic wooden cross was dressed in blue and white flowers. It was a stunning backdrop to the wedding ceremony, framed by a wedding structure draped in fabric and greenery.
Here Comes The Bride
Josh waited anxiously as Sarah made her entrance, escorted by her father. The two exchanged their wedding vows in a beautiful, laughter-filled wedding ceremony before making their exit in a shower of bubbles.
Dinner, Dancing, and Ice Cream!
Inside the ballroom, tables were dressed in crisp white linen. Each was accented with beaded glass charger plates and blue napkins holding custom-designed menu cards. The table settings were complimented by a soft blue and white floral centerpiece and votive candles.
The newlyweds made their entrance, followed by their first dance to ‘All Your’n’ by Tyler Childress. Their first dance was followed by a welcome by the new Mr. and Mrs. as well as a delicious dinner and some AMAZING ice cream!
Congratulations, Sarah and Josh! We wish you a lifetime filled with love and laughter.
