The incredible Marriott Waterside in Tampa was the venue of choice for our couple, Kathryn and Frank, to host their garden inspired wedding! Following their Catholic ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, guests were greeted by a stunning ballroom reception with elements of a stunning garden party.

Marriott Waterside Wedding at Historic Tampa Cathedral

May 19, 2018  |  Kathryn & Frank

We had a lot of hurdles to overcome for Kathryn and Frank’s wedding in Tampa – but it ended up being so wonderfully perfect from start to finish! First, I can’t talk about Kathryn without mentioning Ellie. I met Kathryn several years ago when she was the Maid of Honor in Ellie and Nick’s wedding in St. Petersburg. When she emailed me about her own engagement, I was so excited to be working with their entire family for another beautiful event!

You can see Ellie and Nick’s wedding here.

Their wedding day came with a rainy forecast, and a venue directly across the street from Amalie Arena – the day of a Stanley Cup playoff game for The Lightning! We were anticipating closed roads, storms and chaos. Instead, we got a beautifully easy day where everything seemingly fell in to place (much to the efforts of our stellar planning team from Table 6 Productions!) And although we did hit some rain, we managed to get everything we needed and allowed Kathryn and Frank to take in all the love and emotions of the day!

Their wedding day style was about bringing the outside, in. They chose a garden themed wedding with ivy walls, light pink and blush flowers, floral linens and a special monogram with their puppy included! An artist painted their reception space while they danced their first dance together. Clinks and cheers for our amazing newlyweds, Frank and Kathryn!
