Vows by the Water

Then, the ceremony took place overlooking the shimmering waters of the Tampa River. Thus, adding a touch of romance to the already magical atmosphere. Our Ghost Chairs lined the aisle while Zoe’s father walked her down, his pride evident in every step. As she met Matthew both of their eyes beamed with love.  Then vows were exchanged, the first kiss as husband and wife sealed their bond forever.

Furry Fun

No wedding is complete without the furry members of the family, and Zoe and Matthew’s special day was no exception. Their beloved Kylo, the fur-baby, was lovingly cared for by FairyTail Pet Care, ensuring he was part of the celebration without any worries.

Champagne and black reception

The bride and groom savored a unique private moment together, enjoying a “room reveal” of their reception space before their guests arrived. This special time allowed them to soak in the beauty and love that surrounded them before stepping into the spotlight. This wedding was a masterclass in blending styles. Timeless grace met modern chic, and whimsical touches like spring florals added a touch of lightheartedness. The venue’s modern lines provided a canvas for creativity, while the reception embraced a neutral palette accented with pastel floral arrangements and personalized details. Round and long tables adorned with champagne linens and our Black Ghost Chairs, each adorned with a vibrant spring floral arrangement, awaited their loved ones. The sweetheart table, a haven for the newlyweds, overflowed with the same enchanting floral magic.

Dinner, dancing, and laughter filled the night, creating memories that will last a lifetime.  Then, the night ended with a magical champagne-colored streamer wand send-off, a final touch of love and celebration to cap off a truly unforgettable evening.
