Marry Me Tampa Bay – Karrie and Jeff

Normally when a girl joins an online dating service, it’s because she’s ready to settle down. But for St. Petersburg bride Karie, she initially had other motives. “I had joined Match.com to prove to a friend that the guys she was meeting weren’t the issue, she was. I ‘bet’ her I would be able to meet someone rather quickly,” Karie said. “After Jeff winked at me online, we chatted online all day long and met up that very same night. We clicked instantly and have been inseparable ever since! Who would have known that joining a dating website as a joke would have resulted in meeting my husband!?”

Marry Me Tampa Bay – Joylynn and Jarod

We’ve all heard that “wives’ tale” of finding love in a grocery store, but for Tampa Bay couple Joylynn and Jarod they really did meet in the ice cream aisle! Jarod was stationed in St. Petersburg with the U.S. Coast Guard while Joylynn was living in Ft. Myers. After a year of long-distance dating, the couple decided to spend the rest of their lives together. “My husband asked my parents for their blessing and proposed at Maggiano’s restaurant. We wanted a year to plan the wedding so we set our wedding date for the next April,” Joylynn shared.

Wedding Advice Article – Marry Me Tampa Bay

I am a HUGE advocate of a hiring a Tampa Bay wedding planner.

Since most brides have never planned a large event beyond maybe a birthday party or baby shower, they don’t realize the scope of what it takes to make a wedding day smooth and enjoyable.

For those brides who understand the importance of hiring a professional wedding planner (trust me, it’s an investment you will not regret), they often get confused about the role and responsibilities of the venue’s wedding coordinator versus hiring your own wedding planner.
