A Wedding at Hyatt Regency Tampa

Tampa Florida Wedding / Karen Harrison Photography

I am quite certain that the detail from this wedding that caught my attention will catch yours:  Ashley’s beautiful and vibrant red hair and her darling black headpiece.  It’s just so darling!  I love their classic color palette of black and white with accents of apple green.  Ashley and Ian, congrats on your beautiful wedding!

Finding a photographer was one of the hardest and most stressful parts of the wedding planning process for me.  After interviewing many photographers, and endless internet research, I finally found Karen Harrison Photography.  I was immediately blown away by her portfolio and fell in love with her unique and flawless TALENT!  She was not only amazing, but I also never even noticed she was there taking photos.  She blended in and got every single shot I could have hoped for AND MORE.  I will definitely be using her again for all of my family photoshoots.  Karen was such a genuine and sweet person to work with.

I always dreamed of a classic and timeless theme for my wedding.  That thought immediately drew me to the classic black and white look.  I also love the romance of lots of green foliage, which lead me to our accent color of apple green.

My florist was Flowers By Jenny.  I ABSOLUTELY loved her from the moment I met her, full of high energy and smiles!  We LOVED all the floral arrangements, from the ceremony arch and aisle way, to our beautiful reception table arrangements.  When I first met Jennifer, I explained “my vision” to her of lots of green foliage, only white flowers (no roses), cascading type flowers, and lots of texture.  She immediately started showing me pictures of her suggestions…it was if she had captured the images inside my head!  The hanging Amaranthus, Seeded Eucalyptus, Coffee Green, and Curly Willow gave the arch and table arrangements the exact touch I wanted.

I also wanted a vintage broach bridal bouquet (I had seen the idea on Pinterest).  My mother and grandparents had been collecting priceless, vintage broaches for years.  We brought them all to Jennifer and she created a stunning bouquet for me.

advice_styleunveiled_rwdbanner_2014

My advice to anyone planning a wedding is to be very ORGANIZED (I’m not, but thank goodness my mother is)!  Keep a binder full of pictures of anything you’ve ever dreamed of having on your wedding day to show your various vendors what inspires you.  Pay attention to all the small details and everything will come together perfectly on your special day!
