Everything about Carissa and David’s plans for a classic evening wedding in downtown Tampa was just so…. them! Even though they live in Colorado, they planned every detail of their event with the help of their parents and their amazing coordinator, Barb. And from the moment we showed up, we could see their plans come together from their gorgeous red accents to their candlelit reception.
And since I’m a detail girl – one of my favorite details was the snowboard cufflinks that Carissa got for David! Another great detail was Carissa’s bouquet, which was wrapped with her mom’s wedding gown fabric. It was absolutely stunning!
I thought this would be the perfect wedding to share this holiday season because it was one of those weddings that made me feel all warm and had the perfect touches of romance and sweet, personalized details.
