Sloan and Jacob’s Tampa Garden Club Wedding

Our Special Moments Event Planning team had a fantastic time working with Sloan, Jacob, and their families on their Tampa wedding.

I’m Not Crying 

Everyone held back tears as the couple saw each other for the first time. Knowing the couple, we wondered who would burst into tears first. We call it a draw and loved every minute of their first look.

The bride and groom wrapped up their photos with some wedding party photos before everyone tucked away for the guests’ arrival.

Champagne, Tears, and Laughter

As they arrived, guests were greeted by a Champagne cart as they made their way into the beautiful garden for their outdoor wedding ceremony.

With everyone in place, Jacob stood in front of the fabric-draped wedding arch. He was all smiles as Sloan, escorted by her father, made her way down the aisle.

Cocktails and Final Touches

The newlyweds and their wedding guests enjoyed cocktails and some delicious hors d’oeuvres while some final touches were being made to the ballroom.

Tables draped in white linens were dressed with lush white floral arrangements and candles.  Gold Chiavari chairs and table numbers in gold frames added a pop color to the decor. 



Salads and warm rolls were pre-set for the guests to enjoy before the arrival of the guests of honor.

And how beautiful is their wedding cake?
