March 30

Tampa, Florida


Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I wanted an indoor/outdoor venue with a view. I really had a hard time finding something like that in the Tampa/St. Pete area. All it took was one tour of the Westin’s BluVu Room and I was sold! The view is absolutely spectacular indoors and outdoors!

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The outdoor patio décor (grass bar, patterned tablecloths, and fun pillows), the card table showing pictures of family members that are no longer with us, and the candy bar.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Enjoy the planning process! It can sometimes become tedious and stressful, but seeing your vision come to life at the end is all worth it!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

I really loved the grand exit with the sparklers! It really solidified that we were finally married!
