How would you describe your theme/wedding design inspiration?
Rustic elegance. I love wood signage and that cozy rustic feel, so our ceremony contained more of the rustic décor. Our reception fell more under the elegance category with our table arrangements and sequin linens for the sweetheart and cake tables.

What were your colors?
Blue is both of our favorite colors, so we went with a light blue and silver color combination. I love silver accents with a light sky blue.

What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay couples?
When it comes to planning a wedding, focus on what is most important, your relationship. That is after all, the reason for your wedding celebration. Everyone will have an opinion on something. Stay true to yourselves and have fun!
