First wedding of 2016

What a wonderful way to start the New Year with another Great Tampa Wedding. It was an honor to help in the creation of this amazing wedding at The Vault Downtown Tampa. Mark and Lindsey were amazing to work with. I was given a guideline of what they were looking for and I took it from there.  With Tammy Waterman of Special Moments Event Planning at the helm we created a Winter White theme. The Chuppah was adorned with a modern custom made chandelier along with lush floral tiebacks of Hydrangea and Ivory Roses. The aisle was lined with more than 400 roses that were turned into petals and tall cylinders with White Cymbidium Orchids submerged in water with floating candles.

The wedding began with a full day of setup starting at Noon sharp.  Our crew was one of the first on site along with Coast to Coast Party Rentals with a gigantic stage to be set up for the band. After hours of setup the guest began to arrive and arrive and arrive.  The ceremony was standing room only.  Meanwhile the Mise en Place staff was steadily scurrying about creating a meal fit for a king.

Not long after the ceremony was over the real work began.  The Chuppah had to be removed, petals collected, and cylinders filled with water moved to guest tables to be completed with abundant arrangements of Hydrangea, Ivory Roses and White Phalaenopsis Orchids while the guests enjoyed horderves and cocktails in the Lock Box.

As all the commotion and planned exchange of the ceremony to reception Chef Marie and Chef Carlos made their appearance with a beautifully designed wedding cake from Hands on Sweets.

In the background Phillip Lloyd of Phillip Lloyd Photography was discreetly photographing all the changes and Michael Greenberg of Nature Coast Entertainment Services slipped in the door to set up the Photo Booth in the vault.

The band prepared for the guests and the party began.

There was one huge surprise by a gust appearance of the group Sister Hazel.

Once again it was so great to work with some of Tampa’s Best Wedding Professionals.

We at Apple Blossoms Floral Designs wish Mark and Lindsey many many years of Health and Happiness, and oh yes to Baby Jack as well.
