Davis Island Garden Club, Tampa Wedding: Erin & CJ

Both of their occupations are to help others, Cj is a firefighter and Erin is a nurse, which explain their open and caring personalities!   They couldn't wait for this day, the last time I met with them to go over all the details.  Once I heard Erin describe how she fell in love with gardens at the Davis Island Garden Club  and all the details they had planned, I couldn't wait either!  

All of the signage, floral and handmade decor made her vintage garden vision complete.  Their guests loved the floating frame her Dad made for a DIY photo booth.  They stocked the bar with liquor that had been gifted to them from friend's and family.  Erin's Dad built a custom wood pallet planter shelf for the succulent favor's that doubled as place card's.  (This was one of my favorite details!  I said a few ohh's and ahh's when I saw it.)  Erin also made the entrance sign that welcomed guests to the wedding.  So many pretty handmade details!

I love send off's, they just end the night in a fun way.  Not only did they have a confetti canon send off, they ran to the dock nearby, onto a boat they chartered that took them directly to their hotel on the riverwalk.  The guests stood by the water's edge and cheered them on as their boat went by.
