The Story Of My Life
Lauren, Max, and Lauren’s mother who was doing most of the planning for their Clearwater Beach wedding were referred to our Special Moments Event Planning team by Laurie at A Piece of Cake. Planning a destination wedding from out of state had them overwhelmed, to say the least.
We loved working with them to piece together all of the details and finish out the rest of their wedding planning and design.
Lauren’s stunning textured lace, applique and crystal wedding gown created the color story for the entire wedding and was enhanced by the soft pink and white flowers in her bridal bouquet.
Their Sky Terrace wedding ceremony overlooked the Gulf of Mexico and was set with white garden chairs and two large white urns overflowing with white hydrangea, white cottage roses, and blush pink roses. Lauren made her entrance to “The Story of My Life” by the Piano Guys.
The couple, who chose not to see each other prior to the wedding ceremony, headed out for some wedding party and family photos as well as some magnificent wedding portraits.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception on the Bellair Ballroom Terrace which included a fun caricature artist and signing a sand dollar for the new Mr. & Mrs.
The Bellair Ballroom was set with round tables draped in white linen and chairs with white spandex, wrapped in silver organza sashes with bows. The look was completed with silver charger plates and tall glass trumpet vases with white and blush floral arrangement.
After Lauren and Max’s first dance, the evening proceeded with two blessings; one offered by the bride’s step-father and the second in Chinese by the groom’s father.
Following a sumptuous buffet dinner and several toasts, Lauren had her father-daughter dance to “Daddy’s Little Girl.”
After they had finished the DJ announced “There are some other special men in Lauren’s life that she would like to share a dance with. So we are going to play Daddy’s Little Girl one more time and she would like to have her Grandfather, her new father-in-law, and her stepfather, share a dance with her.”
What an incredible way to share your evening with the important people in your life.
The evening continued with Lauren and Max taking time for some photos and ended with them cutting their amazing four-tiered wedding cake with seashells and coral to “Better Together” by Jack Johnson.
Congratulations Lauren and Max, we wish you an incredible life together.
A special thank you to Lauren’s mother Susie for the kind words.
Let me tell you – if you are planning a wedding from afar, you can’t live without a wedding planner. I could have saved a lot of money if I had hired Tammy from the start as she has connections with a lot of vendors I didn’t know about.
Her help the day before and the day of the wedding was immeasurable. There’s so much to think about and having a person there who has it all covered so you can relax and actually enjoy the day was awesome.
She also saved the day in so many ways… The best part is she knows and has a relationship with all of the local vendors and they all work very well together. They each know their role – so you can step back and let them do their jobs.
I was able to enjoy my daughter’s receptions and actually spend time with our guests because Tammy was taking care of things before I was even aware they were happening. 100% recommend Tammy Waterman!
Thanks to all of the awesome vendors who made Lauren and Max’s day!
