Nicole and Patrick’s Tampa Bay Wedding

Nicole and Patrick’s Tampa Bay wedding was so beautiful. We loved the Green, Silver, and Ivory color story and the personal details they infused into their day.

The couple chose not to see each other before their ceremony and started their day in separate suites at a nearby hotel.


All About The Details

For Nicole and the ladies, the day began with hair and makeup at the hotel and photos of the bride’s accessories.



It was much simpler for Patrick and the guys. There were a few photos of them getting dressed and then off to the wedding venue.

I Choose You

The wedding gazebo along Tampa Bay was decorated with beautiful flowers and greenery and accented with silver lanterns. Harp music was a sweet and beautiful choice for the ceremony. 



With everyone in place, Nicole, escorted by her father, made her entrance to “Married Life,” the theme from Disney’s movie UP.

Patrick waited patiently, watching his bride make her entrance.

The couple exchanged vows and rings in a touching ceremony that included one of our favorite  Unity celebrations. The two constructed a wooden puzzle with their names, wedding date, and heartfelt phrases.


Sealing their vows with a kiss, the newlyweds made their exit to “Levitating” by Dua Lipa.


Awesome Signature Cocktails

After the ceremony, guests went to the Coral Room for Cocktail Hour. It included some delicious light bites and two fantastic Signature Cocktails.


Transfusion: Vodka, Ginger Ale, Grape Juice, and Lime

White Linen: Gin, St. Germain Elderflower Liquor, White Cranberry Juice, Sour Mix, and a Sprig of Mint.


Other personal touches included golf club stirrer sticks and custom Koozies for canned drinks.

Cocktail hour allowed guests to pick up their escort cards. These custom, colorful coasters identified the guests’ entree selection of Beef, Chicken, or Vegetarian. And guests got to add their wishes and Polaroid photos to the couple’s guest book.



Meanwhile, the newlyweds and their wedding party took some time for group photos before the couple’s portrait session just before the sun began to set over Tampa Bay.



Sail Away With Me

The dining room was set with beautiful ivory linens and olive green napkins folded over silver charger plates. Silver chiavari chairs surrounded each table, which held silver table numbers, greenery, and floating candles.

Following their introductions, the newlyweds made their way to the dance floor for their first dance to “Islands In The Stream” by Dolly Parton. We love the way the spark fountains reflect off the wall of windows.

Parent dances were next before guests enjoyed their delicious multi-course dinner, and the couple cut their wedding cake.

The night continued with dancing, delicious cupcakes, and some late-night snacks. What a beautiful, personal, intimate wedding.

Congratulations, Nicole and Patrick! What a beautiful wedding day.
