YBor City Wedding at CL Space
Giving Back to Astrid and Gary
There really is no better feeling than giving back to those who give so much to their community, and Astrid and Gary’s wedding at CL Space was a great opportunity for so many vendors to give to this wonderful couple.
Gary is a firefighter, while Astrid regularly spends her weekends volunteering at her local children’s ministry. These two spend so much of their time giving to others, so when we were given the chance to make their dream wedding come true a few years ahead of schedule, we jumped on it!
Astrid made a radiant bride, with her dark hair in luscious waves and wearing a huge smile on her face. Her mother, a cancer patient, practically had tears in her eyes as she watched her daughter walk down the aisle, just the way she’d always imagined it.
It was a lovely day for a wedding, and the outdoor ceremony was just beautiful. Simply but lovingly decorated, the ceremony was warm and intimate. The guests were so excited, it’s a wonder that they were able to stay in their seats long enough for Astrid and Gary to say their I Do’s!
Shortly after the ceremony, it was time to party the night away! The reception area was just perfectly decorated, not too lavish, as per the couple’s wishes, but warm and romantic. Rectangular farm tables from Set Event Rentals paired with our French Country Chairs made the room look even more inviting, as guests sat and dined on a delicious meal by Tastes of Tampa Bay, and a magnificent cake from Trudy Melissa Cakes.
At the end of it all, it was a day that the newlyweds will remember fondly for the rest of their lives, and we feel so very honored to have been a part of it. Congratulations again, Astrid and Gary!
