We celebrated this St Pete wedding with Michelle and Tristan at a few remarkable venues; from the Vinoy to Flora Wylie Park and finally dancing the night away at the Morean Center for Clay! Their style was modern and stylish, with hints of Florida!
Michelle and Tristan | Sneak Peek
February 8, 2020 at Morean Center for Clay, St. Petersburg FL
Michelle and Tristan had a chance meeting after initially communicating on Bumble! Although Michelle wasn’t believing that she would find the man of her dreams on the popular dating app, she gave Tristan a chance and realized that they actually connected in a way she didn’t expect! They shared mutual dreams and goals, and it didn’t take long before they both knew that they were brought together for a reason!
Sharing their lives together included their sweet fur-child, Blue. They bounce between exciting nights on the couch and dinners at trendy restaurants. But no matter where they end up, this family-oriented couple always know that they can call each other “home”. After planning a group cruise with 14 of their friends, Tristan proposed on that first sunset, on the top deck, and they spent the rest of their vacation celebrating with everyone! Michelle was the only one who didn’t know the entire thing was a set-up by Tristan!
St Pete Wedding and a special guest
Their wedding day was a celebration of love, family and friends! After spending the morning getting ready at the Vinoy, they selected Flora Wylie Park for their ceremony, overlooking the water. Blue was the guest of honor, and was SO excited to see his mommy and daddy! In fact, we had to pause the ceremony after Michelle walked down the aisle so he could greet her! After their kiss, they walked down the aisle but Blue wasn’t getting left behind… he bolted down the aisle towards them for some big doggy congrats kisses!
Following a short trolley ride, guests were then treated to a trendy and stylish reception at the Morean Center for Clay. It’s a super cute industrial space that they decorated with palm leaves, gold and wood details, white linens, a checkerboard dance floor and neon sign!
Michelle and Tristan will be heading to Hawaii in about a month to celebrate their wedding with a much-deserved honeymoon! Blue, unfortunately, have to stay home for this trip!
