The Vault in Tampa was the perfect place for Kristen and Justin to celebrate their I Do’s with friends and family! Starting at Le Meridien in downtown Tampa and then hosting their ceremony and reception in the indoor ballroom at The Vault, every detail was meticulously planned for their wedding day.
Ivory and Champagne Soiree – The Vault Tampa Wedding
October 6, 2018 | Kristen & Justin
Kristen and Justin sealed the deal at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Windermere, Florida. A week after this traditional Sealing Ceremony, the pair hosted their family and friends for a romantic night of handwritten vows finished with toasts to a beautiful life together.
Who knew coming home from college to see your parents would end in meeting the love of your life? Kristen came home to Lakeland from school in Louisville, Kentucky and met Justin. He invited her to a hockey game and the rest is history!
Justin created the perfect plan to get Kristen to say yes! He had one of his buddies from college reach out to Kristen looking for models for a Valentine’s Day promotion. Kristen wasn’t so into the idea, but said yes anyways.
“So we we got all dressed up and as we were taking photos in the middle of downtown Tampa, he gets all nervous and shaky,” said Kristen. She freaked out, but she had NO idea what was happening! He got down on one knee then and there and they have the photo Justin’s friend took to prove it.
They held their wedding day at The Vault, a spectacular venue in the heart of Tampa. The floor-to-ceiling windows allowed natural light to make the entire room glow, which totally complimented their color palette!
Florals were key for this stunning wedding! They were incredible flowers everywhere and it kept the space feeling fresh and charming. There were large arrangements on either side of the aisle full of white blooms as Kristen walked down to meet her groom. Her dress was a breathtaking lace gown with long sleeves and a timeless elegance. The couple chose soft colors for their nuptials and reception. The bridesmaids wore champagne dresses, the chairs were draped with satin, and the cake (also overflowing with fresh flowers!) sat on a jeweled platter on top of a rose gold, sparkly tablecloth.
