I Get To Love You

For many of our Special Moments Event Planning couples, Wedding Day Management is essential. It ensues that their wedding day and events leading up to the big day go smoothly. So much so that more and more Tampa Bay wedding venues require it.

For Mikalia and Jacob and most couples, the last month before their wedding was packed with tons of items on their to-do list. Working with our Special Moments Event Planning team helped pull everything together.


Getting Ready and Wedding Portraits

For Mikailia, the morning started with her wedding party. It began with fun photos with her wedding party. Matching robes and oversized balloons made the photo shoot lots of fun for them.

The morning continued with onsite hair and makeup, getting ready, and some beautiful wedding party portraits.

Not to be left out, Jacob and the guys, looking very sharp, took time for some photos before the wedding ceremony.

Married on the Gulf Lawn

Outside on the resort’s Gulf Lawn, all of the pieces were in place for the intimate wedding ceremony. The lawn was set with white garden chairs, leading to a Moon Gate wedding arch decorated with lush greenery and white flowers. In the center of the arch was a table set with the couple’s custom Sand Ceremony set.

Jacob, in place with his wedding party, waited anxiously for his bride-to-be to make her appearance. Mikalia, escorted by her father, made her entrance to “I Get To Love You” by Ruelle. Seeing her for the first time overwhelmed Jacob a bit.

Photos on Clearwater Beach

Following their beach wedding, guests enjoyed Cocktail Hour while the newlyweds spent some time shooting portraits on the beach. They are too cute together!

24K Magic

Inside the ballroom, everything was in place for a night filled with touching family moments, delicious food, and dancing. Reception tables were draped in white linen topped with white floral arrangements on gold risers and floating candles.
