This Whimsical Country Club Wedding Is the Perfect Spring Affair

Sarah Beth and Josh’s wedding is truly one to cherish. It’s classic, timeless, and filled with oh-so-elegant details. Captured by Jacqui Cole Photography with beauty from Salon Inga, we’ve got this stunner of a celebration waiting for you to fall in love with time and time again in The Vault!

Country Club

From Jacqui Cole PhotographyEvery single moment of Sarah Beth and Josh’s wedding day was truly a joy to capture. There was so much love throughout the day you couldn’t help but smile as you saw the memories unfold.

Sarah Beth and Josh chose to celebrate their marriage at the beautiful Tampa Yacht and Country Club. This classic Tampa venue not only has stunning grounds but the ability to enjoy both dining al fresco under twinkly lights and dancing the night away in the air-conditioned ballroom! Any Florida girl knows this is the best of both worlds.

Sarah Beth got ready at her family home with her dear friends and of course their sweet family pup! The girls sipped on champagne and relaxed as the team at Salon Inga pampered them with their beautiful hair and makeup. When it came time for Sarah Beth to step into her Monique Lhuillier gown, her mum and sister were able to share a special moment by themselves. So many of Sarah Beth’s detail were meticulously chosen and almost every one had a sentimental meaning. The wedding day events map was hand painted by her father, the champagne goblets were her Grandmother’s bridesmaid gifts and the custom embroidered bag was a gift from her sister.

Sarah Beth and Josh wanted a classic, timeless wedding with neutral colors. Pops of soft lilac and organic greens added depth to their decor. The table settings were simple yet oh-so elegant. The bride and groom love the beach and chose to substitute name cards in place or hand calligraphed shells.

Sarah Beth switched into her honeymoon dress and arm in arm they exited under sparklers into their Rolls Royce getaway car. I couldn’t be happier for these two beautiful souls – it was a true honor to capture these memories!

From the Bride… I had never pictured getting married in my hometown, but after living away from home for the past 10 years, it was incredibly special to have our wedding where I grew up. Josh and I wanted our wedding to be formal and timeless but also very personal. I had always pictured an organic, romantic style for our wedding, so we used long, candlelit tables to make the dinner feel more intimate and chose mostly greenery and neutral colors with a pop of purple in the flowers. We served craft beer brewed by my uncle and had a bourbon bar especially for Josh. I have a major sweet tooth, so we had an ice cream and cookies bar served alongside the cake. My parents also helped me (painstakingly) collect and paint over 200 oyster shells to use as place cards since most of my childhood memories revolve around the water and Josh often took family trips to beaches just an hour away from Tampa, despite growing up in the Midwest.

We also tried to incorporate a lot of family traditions. We got married in the church where my parents were married over 35 years ago and had our reception at the same location where both my parents and paternal grandparents had their wedding receptions. We displayed photos from our parents’ and grandparents’ weddings at the reception and used some special family heirlooms, including my grandmother’s set of toasting goblets. On my grandmother’s wedding day, her five bridesmaids gifted her with a set of six silver goblets — one for each of them and one for her — which they used at her wedding reception. After my mom realized that I happened to have five bridesmaids as well, we used them during the day while getting ready at my parents’ house. It was such a fun and relaxing part of the day that was made even more special since my grandmother couldn’t be physically present with us.

We are so grateful to Jacqui for perfectly capturing our wedding! It is so true that the day goes by really quickly, but we are thankful to have such wonderful photographs that remind us of all of the joy and love from that day.

Classic + Elegant Museum Wedding in Tampa, Florida

This Tampa celebration is a work of art. Because not only did this darling pair plan the perfect party, but the also held their reception in an art museum. I mean, how cool is that?! History buffs take note, this celebration is for you. A gallery that has garnered praise, thanks to K&K Photography we’ve got it all curated and collected for you to view. See it all displayed in The Vault!


From the Bride… The most important aspect of our day was knowing that God was honored in the middle of it all. From the ceremony to the reception, Aaron and I desired for love to be the centerpiece. And it was! Our ceremony was a beautiful celebration of becoming one in front of all of our closest family and friends.

Arriving at the museum, we were greeted by delicate touches of beauty and love, from the linens, to the centerpieces, to the food, to the music – it was all exactly as we had envisioned. The Fall November air was crisp and light, and the love that surrounded us was warm and comforting.

One unique touch there was, was a hot donut stand. There was a line of people waiting to create their own hot donut the entire night. It was a hit!

We can’t thank our vendors enough for providing such excellent service and talent. It was truly, the perfect day.

Elegant Black Tie Tampa Yacht Club Wedding

Lesson learned from these elegant yacht club nuptials? Twinkling lights, gleaming gold and baby blue details, and tuxedos as far as the eye can see make for one beautiful set of “I Do’s.” Lucky for us, Kallima Photography was there to capture all the pretty — from the endless laughs to the enviable ‘maid squad moments — and we’ve got it all in the gallery right here!

From Kallima PhotographyKate and Josh had a gorgeous classic black tie wedding in Tampa, Fl. The bride and groom chose the Tampa Yacht and County club for their reception venue. Guests were treated to a band underneath a clear tent in the back of the club overlooking Tampa Bay. The clear tent featured hanging floral arrangements and strung lights. For their ceremony, the couple was married at the Jesuit School chapel, and they were the last couple to ever be married there as the chapel was to be renovated just after the day. The couple was sent off with a sparkler exit.
