Jessica and Tommy
Florida Aquarium Wedding

There’s beautiful, and then there’s this wedding! When Jessica and Tommy reached out to us just three and a half short months before their big day, we knew right away that this was going to be one of our favorite weddings of the year! From the first moment I met Jessica, I felt an instant connection with her. She definitely became one of those brides, and this was one of those weddings, that I will never forget! From the special under the “c” details to the fun DIY projects that the couple incorporated to the fun that we had planning all of the unique aspects of their dream day, this one was truly a fun and memorable wedding for the books! Jessica and Tommy had our partial planning package which gave Jessica all the freedom she needed for her DIY projects but gave us the ability to have control over all of the details and logistics for the their Florida Aquarium Wedding Day.

A lot of amazing vendors came together to make this beautiful day happen for the couple!

This was Jessica’s one request for the ceremony… a fish made out of rose petals for her to stand on! It was one of the cutest details we have ever seen!

Planner tip: repurpose your ceremony decor to the reception! Here we took the lanterns from the floor of the ceremony and placed them on some of the reception tables with other ocean worthy bobles.
