Travis and Valerie's Fabulous Westin Wedding
Last Saturday, I had the honor of coordinating Travis and Valerie's wedding at the Westin Rocky Point. Valerie was one of the calmest brides I have ever seen. When I walked into her "getting ready" suite that day, the mood was so calm and serene yet you could feel the excitement in the air. It was so nice that Valerie was able to focus on the true meaning of the day and share special moments with friends and family while everything came together.
They picked a great location to celebrate their big day! Their banquet room at the Westin had large windows that made the room light and airy. The room also included the use of a huge lanai with cozy lounge furniture and amazing views of the Tampa Bay area. There was a stunning sunset that evening too!
One of my favorite aspects of the decor Valerie picked was the centerpieces. She collected some beautiful vases and we filled them with tiger lillies and orchids. The variety of vases and floral arrangements made a really nice impact on the overall look of the room. Valerie's adorable table numbers that she made were also a nice touch.
DJ Jody Bowers from Grant Hemond was there to keep the crowd on the dance floor...and this crowd could really dance! They were having a blast!
Jamie and Amy of Couture Wedding Studios photographed all the details and captured all the special moments of the day. I really enjoyed working with them and can't wait to see their pictures.
The Westin staff did an amazing job and were very accommodating. A special thanks to Alexa, Lewis and Paul who helped work through the weather challenges (it was VERY windy that night) and make sure all the guests were well taken care of.
Travis & Valerie - I really enjoyed being part of your day. You are a wonderful couple and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
Here are some of the pictures I took! I hope to have some professional pictures from Couture Wedding Studios to post in the near future too, so stay tuned!!
