Alyssa and Sean’s Tampa wedding was such an incredible day for our Jennifer Matteo Event Planning team. Filled with love and personality, the love between the two of them is contagious.
The ladies spent the morning relaxing, popping a little bubbly to Disney tunes, and getting ready for the wedding day. In their own space, Sean and the gentleman got dressed and raised a glass and took time for some group photos before the couple had their first look.
Alyssa wore a long sweeping gown with a modern lace bodice and sweetheart neckline, accented by a crystal-embellished belt to accentuate her waistline. Sean was brought to tears when he saw his bride to be during their first look.
The couple exchanged their wedding vows in a riverfront ceremony at Kiley Gardens with incredible views of downtown Tampa and the university as their backdrop.
Alyssa and Sean stood in front of a simple wooden ceremony structure of moss, greenery and trailing vines dotted with white roses that matched Alyssa’s bouquet. An elegant detail that would later be repurposed to frame their sweetheart table.
The couple’s dogs joined them for their wedding ceremony and photos before the wedding party took a water taxi down to the reception. The dogs were at the reception in spirt with Signature Cocktails named for each of the pups.
During the cocktail reception, Sean surprised his bride with a saxophone serenade that left her smiling all night.
The romantic details soft lighting, crisp white linens, gold charger plates, and votive candles created a beautiful tablescape. Tall floral arrangements of soft white hydrangea and roses popped against the industrial backdrop of the Armature Works reception space.
The couple enjoyed an evening of dinner and dancing with family and friends at their incredible downtown Tampa wedding.
