Michelle and Kevin’s Tampa Bay Wedding
Michelle and Kevin’s wedding was truly a Tampa Bay wedding. And, if you Google the word ADORBS, this couple is sure to come up in your search results.
It began with Michelle getting ready and spending time with her wedding party and family on one side of the bay. Meanwhile, Kevin was getting ready on the opposite side of the bay.
You’re The Best Thing
The two met for a traditional wedding ceremony at the St. Athanasius Syriac Orthodox Church in Tarpon Springs.
Kevin looked very handsome in his dress military uniform as he anxiously waited for his bride’s arrival.
Michelle, escorted by her uncle, made her entrance to Pachelbel’s Canon in D. The traditional ceremony was absolutely beautiful and touching. The newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss and added a little personality with a grand exit to ‘You’re The Best Thing!’
A Classic Touch
Following family photos in the church, the couple headed off in a classic white Rolls Royce.
They crossed the bay to Tampa for some photos with their wedding party before rejoining family and friends for a night of great food and friends.
Classic Décor With A Twist
While Michelle and Kevin’s wedding guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the venue’s Coral Room, the newlyweds took some time alone.
The ballroom was draped in luxurious flowing fabric accented with soft up lighting. The tables were dressed in ivory linen with gold charger plates, personalized wedding favors, and eclectic floral arrangements.
A portion of the tables were dressed with low arrangements combining fresh flowers, gold candles, and rustic wood platforms. Other tables held tall arrangements of greenery and flowers on gold-toned risers.
The newlyweds snuck in for a sneak peek and one last chance to practice their first dance.
Touching Toasts and Special Moments
Following introductions of family and the wedding party, the couple made their grand entrance and took to the dance floor. After their first dance, Kevin danced with his mother, and Michelle took to the dancefloor with several special family members.
The evening continued with several toasts, including a few with fun props.
The couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious multicourse dinner before the bride and groom cut their four-tiered white wedding cake and opened the dancefloor for the evening.
Congratulations, Michelle and Kevin! We wish you a lifetime filled with special moments.
