Maryann + Michael Step Into The Limelight | Palma Ceia Golf & Country Club | Tampa, FL

Maryann and Michael have a true “puppy love” love story…they met all the way back in kindergarten at the tender age of five years old. Michael proposed at Christmas in 2018 in front of Maryann’s family. Together they share a love of music, food, wine, hockey, going to the beach and traveling. It is a joy to see the compassion they have not only for each other, but for their friends and family; and to witness their shared sense of humor.

Their Rustic, English Garden Cocktail Party was romantic, stress-free, fun and memorable. All guests felt warmly welcomed, entertained, happy and comfortable  Maryann and Michael enjoyed celebrating their future together with their families.

Kimberly + Will Step Into The Limelight | The Don CeSar | St. Petersburg, FL

Kimberly & Will

Our story began in 2007 at Wharton High School in math class. We became friends after this math class that Will claimed to struggle in - he asked me to tutor him. We both had the same taste in music and were in sports. One time Will let me borrow a Sublime CD that I have yet to return to him. He still asks for it every time he wants to be funny. Years went by we went off to college but  remained friends. After I graduated college we started hanging out again. We enjoyed running, working out and began to travel together. After numerous miles that we ran, weights that were lifted, adventures that took place around the world and 3 years later Will got down on one knee on the beach in St. Petersburg, Florida.  

Kim - Loves Will’s patience . Will - Loves Kim’s ambition. Together they enjoy working out and traveling. 

Their elegant wedding day was inspired by a focus on flowers and a white color scheme.  Their wedding was truly a happy and exciting celebration. Their party had everyone up and dancing!

Gabriella + Michael Step Into The Limelight | The Floridan Palace Hotel | Tampa, FL

Gabriella and Michael met each other during the famous pirate invasion of Tampa event called Gasparilla in 2015. They had been out with friends celebrating when they just so happen to meet at Macdintons. Michael came up to strike up a conversation after just moving back to the Tampa area and the rest is history!

On Christmas Eve 2017, they were at Gabriella's mother's house having dinner. Somehow, Michael had found the time to sneak away and ask her parent's permission to marry me. Michael surprised her with plane tickets to Hawaii, a place that she had always dreamed of going! They left the morning after Christmas and had an absolute blast. On New Years Eve, they went for a walk on one of the private beaches. They sat on the beach when all of a sudden, Michael got down on one knee and proposed. They rang in the new year in Hawaii and could not wait to come home and celebrate with their family and friends!

Gabriella has this to say about her love for Michael, “Michael has an awesome sense of humor, he is a great friend and gets along with everyone! His laugh is contagious and so unique. He keeps me calm and always is my voice of reason. I love to travel with him because he loves trying new things and always keeps an open mind. He works very hard and is a loyal son, is great with his family and mine.”
Together they bring out the best in each other and have a sense of humor and their LAUGHING is contagious! They enjoy lounging by the pool or beach, traveling and cooking together.

They wanted their wedding to be very romantic and traditional. They knew that they wanted to embrace Tampa's culture and show their guests why they love this city so much. Everything felt fresh but still warm with florals and lighting. The Floridan is so iconic and grandiose, boasting the most beautiful architecture and was absolutely stunning during the holiday season. The black tie attire certainly matched the ambiance and set the tone for a glamorous final weekend in 2018!

Gabriella was most excited for her wedding dress and they both loved their band, the florals. They also had some amazing details during the cocktail hour that are unique to Tampa - a cigar aficionado and a flamenco guitarist!

Gabriella and Michael really love to have fun and entertain, and they certainly paid attention to every little at the biggest party they will ever have! They picked out each detail together so that everything at the wedding was a reflection of both of their families and history, and the different pieces that bring them happiness.

So many special emotional moments throughout the day left all of the guests feeling overjoyed and in awe of the elegant decor. You could see and feel the love as Gabriella was first walking down the aisle with her dad, when her dad gave her away and as Gabriella and Michael said their vows. The excitement and celebration of love continued as their shared their first kiss and first dance as husband and wife with all of the most special people in our lives being in one room witnessing their joy.
