Something Old, Something New, and Everything Fabulous
Something Old, Something New, Fabulous, and fun are the only ways to describe Sherry and George’s unique Tampa Bay wedding.
Our Special Moments Event Planning team was hired for Wedding Day Management. It was fantastic to work with so many incredible vendors we know and love and to see this beautiful day come together.
Today’s blog will look a little different as we take you through something old, something new, as well as something fabulous, and a little fun!
Sherry and George were married in a traditional Coptic Orthodox wedding ceremony. The Coptic Orthodox Church dates back to 42 A.D. with ancient Egyptian roots.
We love the uniqueness of the wedding ceremony where the bride and groom process together. The wedding ceremony also included a procession of the officiants, incense, gorgeous robes, and a crowning ceremony.
Their wedding ceremony’s beauty, symbolism, and tradition created many special moments.
Anytime a couple incorporates their personality into their wedding adds new touches, and this couple took the groom’s love of Star Wars to a new level.
From the Star Wars watch he received as a gift to the fantastic helmet that is part of traditional Mandalorian armor, groomsmen with lightsabers, and even a spectacular Star Wars themed grooms cake, they managed to infuse the day with lots of new touches.
Okay, the reality is the entire day was fabulous!
How adorable is the couple’s first look? From the loving looks to George kissing Sherry’s hand, it was everything a first look should be.
Fabulous is the only way to describe the newlywed’s wedding reception. The décor in shades of white, cream, and gold with touches of pale pink was swoon-worthy.
Framing the ballroom with elegant draping added an elegant flair. We especially loved the details surrounding the towering four-tiered wedding cake. The simplicity of the cake itself is complemented by the fresh flowers, candles, and the golden moon gate that framed it!
One fabulous moment few others saw was the bride and groom practicing their first dance and stealing a kiss while they took a peek at the reception décor
The couple’s sweetheart table is fit for a king and queen! Every elegant detail came together to showcase this sweet couple!
And Now For A Little Fun!
Let’s start with George getting to cut his Star Wars-themed groom’s cake with a lightsaber!
Follow that with the newlyweds led a traditional Second Line through the ballroom and outside the hotel for an incredible sparkler grand exit!
Yes, the day was THAT amazing! It was packed with many special moments, so here are a few more captured in their wedding video trailer!
Congratulations, Sherry and George!
