Mike and Brandi's wedding day was nothing short of perfect! From the well organized schedule (thanks to the amazing Oh So Classy team!) to all the stunning personalized details. Plus their wedding was feature on Marry Me Tampa Bay!!! Check it out here. Below are some of our favorite images. Enjoy!
They both got ready at the Aloft in Downtown Tampa, one of our favorite hotels!
I mean, how freakin cute is Katie? She definitely stole the show!
“We wanted to be able to include our dog in the entire day since she’s part of our family,” the bride gushed. “We made sure that we stayed and got ready at a dog-friendly hotel. Katie (our dog) was there and part of our first look, our ceremony and she stayed throughout the reception, even stealing a quick dance with us!”
“The most memorable moment of the day was out first look. We did a first look so that moment of first seeing each other was just between the two of us (and our dog), without being watched by everyone. It also helped with my nerves and made me so happy to be able to spend time with him before the ceremony,” Brandi reminisced.
How would you describe your theme?
We wanted our wedding to reflect our love of travel and our theme to be closely linked to the traveling we’ve done together as a couple. In the beginning of our relationship, most of our travel was domestic, but a few years into dating, we started traveling to other countries and now we have a goal of traveling to another country at least once a year.
What were your colors?
Lilac, plum, gold, and some greenery. We started with dark purple (plum) because that’s Mike’s favorite color, but since we were getting married in the spring, I wanted colors that complemented the season, so lilac was the perfect color. I wanted to have pops of gold because I’ve been obsessing with that color. The greenery ended up in there after talking with our florists about wanting to include succulents in my bouquet and for the guys’ boutonnieres. Plus, green is my favorite color!
The best ending to the day was the glow stick exit!
What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay couples?
Ask your vendors for advice and recommendations. They’ve worked with and formed relationships with other vendors. Planning a wedding gets stressful but once your big day arrives, you want to just enjoy it and take everything in because it goes by so fast. Putting together an awesome team of vendors will help ensure your day goes perfectly!
