Felicia and Mike

This past Saturday, I had the honor and privilege of assisting with Felicia and Mike's wedding.  I have been working with them since last August and it's amazing to see a couple's vision come to reality and know that you helped play a part in it.  The wedding ceremony and reception was at the Sheraton Riverwalk Hotel in downtown Tampa.  Their new ballroom sits right along the water and has a great view of the University of Tampa.  Their colors were chocolate brown and pink, and they incorporated a lot of little touches that really made the wedding special.

One example of those special touches were the way they did the place cards.  Felicia's mom, Pat, put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears working on those place cards, but it was well worth it for they were a huge hit.  Each place card was actually a pink votive candle in a glass holder.  On the glass had the guest's name and table number as well as a ribbon that indicated their entree selection (all color coordinated with the wedding colors, of course).  As the guests picked up their place card and came into the room, the staff lit their candles as they were seated which created a very romantic and elegant atmosphere.  As I was setting up the room on Saturday, there was a site tour being done for another bride who was considering using the venue and her parents were fascinated with the place cards.  As I've said before, it's often the little touches that leave a lasting impression.

Felicia and Mike wanted it to be a party after dinner was finished and partied they did!  They purchased fun props and gave them to the DJ to distribute.  As the evening went on and so did the drinking, out came the fun sunglasses, glow sticks and Hawaiian leis. The guests had a ball and the dance floor was hopping!  I even sported a pair of funky blue sunglasses that the photographer caught on camera... I know I'm going to have to bribe him to delete that one!

At the end of the evening was my favorite part... huge smiles and thank yous from Felicia and Mike, as well as their parents and guests.  I love what I do, and to be able to help make someone's wedding day be memorable and stress-free is an amazing feeling!

The cake was as good for the stomach as it was for the eyes!  It was a yellow and chocolate layered cake with cream cheese filling.  Yum!
