Just Married: Downtown Tampa

Corie and Nick’s downtown Tampa wedding was adorable. A downtown wedding has a different vibe, offering many unique backdrops and historic buildings. 



Getting Started

For Corie and the ladies, the day started with onsite hair and makeup, photos of wedding details, and a toast.



Meanwhile, Nick and the guys hung out. They had a much faster time getting ready. But they still took time for some photos and a toast or two before Nick headed off for his first look with Corie.

Their First Look

Corie and Nick had their first look on the steps of their wedding venue. One of Tampa’s significant historic buildings, it offers excellent textures and backdrops.



Following their first look, the couple took a few photos together, then pictures with their whole wedding party before some downtown Tampa photos.



Best Day of My Life

With everyone in place, Corie, escorted by her father, made her way around the corner and up the stairs. The couple exchanged rings and vows, surrounded by family and friends.



Sealing their wedding vows with a kiss, the Tampa newlyweds headed off for some private time.

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the newlyweds headed outside for some fun. Because who doesn’t love taking their wedding photos with a fun vintage car?

Dance The Night Away

Inside the historic ballroom, tables were set with crisp white linens, surrounded by glossy black Chiavari chairs. Table tops were dressed with clusters of floating candles and bud vases with greenery and white flowers.



However, we have to talk about the table numbers. How awesome are these? Wine bottles with custom labels! Each table number coincided with a wedding anniversary; each table was to sign their bottle. Starting with table One, a bottle would be open on that number’s anniversary!

Following introductions and a delicious dinner, the newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance to ¨I Get To Love You.¨
