I'm not sure how much Florida weather makes the news nationally...but we have had some insane rain lately. You know, a TROPICAL STORM. This past weekend the Tampa Bay area was hit with some rain storms that totally flooded the area. Before the floods, we were in town for a rainy but awesome wedding. The rain definitely didn't damper anyone's spirits. It was a blast!
Rain outside our hotel room
We stayed overnight which made getting ready and partying (yes, even for this preggo) so much more convenient! We didn't have to worry about parking, driving home, etc. I was able to stay out late knowing that all I had to do was walk upstairs to the room and pass out. It was glorious. Here are some of the photos from the wedding -- I'm sure the bride and groom won't mind that I'm sharing! The bride did a FABULOUS job with favors, set up, coordination, etc. Everything was very cohesive from the colors to the printed materials...everything matched. I definitely noticed her hard work! I'm sure she was bummed their outdoor ceremony had to be moved inside due to the weather, but everything looked great!
Cocktail Hour...minus the cocktail for me.
My husband has a reputation for never getting dressed up. This proves he can...and should more often. ;)
The thumbprint guestbook
The paddle programs [there was a word search on the back!] and the lollipop escort cards
Lobster bisque was certainly a highlight... ;)
The GROOM! I loved that they didn't wear full suits -- they had vests!
At our table
The centerpieces were so pretty!
There was a photo booth at the wedding... gotta love my husband's message!
VERY cool set up. You could see the photos from the booth instantly uploaded on the screen and on the iPad... some of the professional pictures from earlier in the day! That was pretty cool to see.
With the bride at the AFTER party. Yes, I made it out to a party until 1am. Win.
It was nice to spend a weekend at home and seeing some of our old friends. It was a great time and I wish the bride and groom lots of happiness! =]
