Krystal and Jeff’s Tampa Bay Watch Wedding

Tampa Bay Watch was the perfect backdrop for Krystal and Jeff’s wedding day. The weather was beautiful, with clear skies and a stunning sunset, and the couple was surrounded by people they love.

The couple’s wedding ceremony was on Tampa Bay Watch’s lawn with magical waterfront views.

As guests gathered, they were given cones filled with dried flowers to toss at the end of the ceremony. We love the signage with oranges as the decor motif. It was something that was carried throughout the wedding.



With everyone in place, Jeff waited for his bride. Krystal, escorted by her brother-in-law, entered to the instrumental version of “Lovers” by Guitar Tribute Band.



The couple exchanged vows, rings, and a few laughs, ending with a unity ceremony and a first kiss. They were showered with flowers as they made their exit.



All Together Now!

At the end of the ceremony, the newlyweds, family, and friends gathered on the lawn for one large group photo.

Guests headed to the deck for cocktails, where they enjoyed some fun signature cocktails and light bites and were able to find their seating assignments for the reception.

Meanwhile, Krystal and Jeff headed off for some family photos and some adorable wedding portraits.



Eat, Drink and Be Married

Inside the wedding reception, tables were draped in crisp white linens, accented with hunter green chargers and navy blue napkins, and they continued the orange theme with simple, elegant centerpieces and orange cookie wedding favors.

For their guestbook, the couple chose a piece of live edge wood inscribed with their names and wedding date that guests could sign with markers.

For their wedding cake, they chose an intimate, two-tiered cake with a custom cake topper.

The newlyweds made their grand entrance and took to the dance floor for their first dance to “Wondering Why” by The Red Clay Strays.



The evening continued with some family dances, a welcome and blessing by Jeff’s father, toasts, and a delicious BBQ dinner before everyone took to the dance floor for the rest of the evening.


Happy couple at their Tampa Bay Watch wedding reception.

We loved the look on Krystal’s face as the couple made their grand exit. Jeff seemed to have a little surprise in store as he and his bride exited in a stunning vintage car!



Congratulations, Krystal and Jeff. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
