Marissa + Bryce Step Into The Limelight | Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa | Clearwater Beach, FL

Marissa and Bryce met in 2012 when Bryce transferred to her workplace. Marissa immediately loved how Bryce had the ability to make her laugh even when she may have had a very terrible day. Besides being hilarious, Bryce has always been so kind and loving with her. Bryce feels like he can always be himself around Marissa, which is so important to him because he tends to joke around a lot. He loves everything about Marissa and her company. Marissa and Bryce enjoy going to the drag racing track, binge watching Netflix, playing video games, and playing with their dogs together.

In 2018, Bryce proposed to Marissa on their yearly ski trip. Every year they travel to the mountains in North Carolina, so nothing was out of the ordinary. As they were skiing down the mountain, Bryce asked her to stop halfway down. She thought they were going to take a picture, but instead Bryce proposed!

Marissa and Bryce were married at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa’s 16th floor sky terrace overlooking the beautiful view of Clearwater Beach and surrounded by their loved ones.

Congratulations Marissa and Bryce, may your days be filled with enormous amounts of love and laughter!

Abby + Eric Step Into The Limelight | Sirata Beach Resort | St. Petersburg, FL

Abby and Eric met In April of 2017 when a mutual friend set them up on a blind date. Eric drove two hours to take Abby out for dinner and drinks. They hit it off right away and have now been together for over 2 years. One day, when they were on vacation in Punta Cana,  Eric got down on one knee and asked for Abby’s hand in marriage. Of course, she said yes! 

Eric and Abby both love to travel and love the beach. His family lives in Ohio, while Abby’s family lives in Illinois. They were going to have a wedding in Indianapolis as a central location, but when they realized Abby’s grandparents wouldn't be able to make a 2 hour drive, they both decided to have a small ceremony for them at home and then take off and get married on the beach with their closest family and friends in Florida. Since both Abby and Eric love the beach, Eric did some research on locations and made plans to call a few locations. They fell in love with Sirata Beach Resort. 

On the day of their wedding, Abby’s bridesmaids wore sunflower yellow dresses and the men were in gray and white outfits. Abby wore a beautiful, white gown and held the most colorful and lively bouquet of flowers. Each groomsmen had a different colored boutonniere and the bridesmaids had bold colored bouquets as well. The day was sunny with a clear blue sky. It was simply perfect for these two!

Allison + Ethan Step Into The Limelight | Harborside Chapel + The Rusty Pelican | Tampa, FL

Allison and Ethan first met at CevicheTappas Restaurant in down town St.Pete after talking online for a few weeks. More than anything Ethan loves making Allison laugh, loves how incredibly kind she is and he says she has never met someone with a bigger heart. Allison loves that Ethan is so funny and entertaining! He is so patient and calm, and incredibly supportive. They never run of things to say and do together and they love being home together. They both enjoy seeing movies and binging on their favoriteTV shows. They like to visit family and travel together to different countries. Ethan found a quite spot near a beautiful fountain in the gardens of Versailles palace to propose one evening.

Their wedding was an elegant yet relaxed celebration of their marriage with all our family and friends. Everyone had a great time and danced the night away with them. The vibe of Rusty Pelican provided a cozy atmosphere and the beautiful water surrounding the location added to the romantic ambiance. When Allison and Nick first saw Harborside Chapel they knew it was where they wanted to get married-it’s so so simple and beautiful! Like a new canvas for us to paint their marriage. 

Colors are the wedding included navy blue, peony pink, blush, white, cream, eucalyptus green and a hint of fuchsia.  Some of their favorite wedding details included the Chapel itself, Allison’s dress, the wedding arbor, the floral arrangements and the atmosphere. Allison created all the center-pieces for the wedding. The groom Ethan brother and father built the wedding arbor for the wedding ceremony. Their DIY floral arrangements were lush with greenery and included blush, white and peony roses and a few fuchsia roses in a background of eucalyptus and mixed deep greens, complimented by floating candles.

This special day was the beginning of their story, and shared with their closest and most loved family and friends. 

What do you think will be your highlights from the ceremony and reception? I think we both are looking forward to sharing the our special day with family and friends. Relaxed. Excited. Emotional. Happy. MARRIED! Congratulations Allison + Ethan!

Shelby + Kyle Step Into The Limelight | Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort | Clearwater Beach, FL

(Sweet) Shelby & (Hugger) Kyle met their senior year at Purdue University. Shelby worked as the athletic trainer for the Women's Volleyball team and Kyle played as a practice player. Kyle would fake injuries in order to talk to Shelby and get her attention. Shelby would stay professional and was clueless that Kyle was interested in her. Two months later, Shelby saw Kyle out at a bar, and he had Arby's sandwiches. Kyle offered Shelby a sandwich and they have been together ever since.

Kyle proposed on New Years Eve at 9:00PM (12/31/17) in The Villages, FL. They were out dancing in the town square with Shelby's parents. When the band wrapped up, Kyle got down on one knee and proposed. The band saw the commotion and pulled back out their instruments. They called them both on stage and played Buddy Holly's "True Love Ways" as they danced.

Shelby loves Kyle fun-loving personality and the fact that he can always make her laugh. He has taught her to not take life so seriously and to enjoy the little things in life. She loves his ambition and how he always goes above and beyond expectations. Kyle will always go out of his way to try and make someones day. 

Kyle loves that Shelby is such a kind, loving, generous, athletic, and sweet person. What's not to love! She is always there to put a big smile on his face, and always knows how to pick him up. She's extremely supportive in his my crazy ideas, and he knows she will always be by my side.

They both enjoy hiking, traveling, wine-tasting, and cheering on the Purdue Boilermakers.

Uncle Toby officiated their wedding, and cousin Jeff played the guitar as they walked down the aisle.  We could not has dreamed of a more perfect wedding day for Shelby & Kyle. Every moment was gracious and oh so sweet. The ultimate goal was a beautiful destination wedding to celebrate their love with close friends and family ending with one big party. Success!

Shelby & Kyle… you both are in for a treat! Life together is the BEST! Enjoy it all 💕

Sharada + Nivasen Step Into The Limelight | Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach | Clearwater Beach, FL

We had such the pleasure working with Nivi and Shar who had the most spectacular wedding at the beautiful Wyndham Clearwater Beach Resort. Our day started nice and early with Shar in a room full of her loved ones who helped her get ready for the big day. Red and Gold covered her from head to toe - she looked stunning! Once both were ready, they gathered themselves with their family and went right into the ceremony which was located in the grand ballroom. A gorgeously decorated stage seated both Nivi’s and Shar’s family and the ritual which would bring blessings, prosperity and happiness took place. Once they were officially married and blessed by all their friends and family, the two enjoyed a nice walk at the beach before heading back inside to get ready for their reception dinner which they had been highly anticipating.

Their reception ball room was vibrant and strategically decorated to the couples liking. Large blue and silver drapes covered the stage where the couple would sit on an elegant white chair. A flower wall was set as a background and the entire room was lit in blue uplighting. Guest tables consistent of different centerpieces which were made of glass and silver pieces. Dancing was definitely the main focus of this gathering and the two along with their guest danced the entire night away. What a celebration this was! Congratulations to the newly weds!!!
