Jessie and Tommie love everything about the sea – the colors, the feeling of the waves around their ankles, and the serenity under the water. The Florida Aquarium let them bring the ocean to their wedding, and they said their vows surrounded by friends, family, and fish! The day was filled with coral-colored details (because what other color would be more appropriate?), from bridesmaid dresses to the fish made of flower petals at the end of the aisle. Tommie wore a starfish boutonniere, and Jessie wore a starfish bracelet to match. They shared their first kiss as husband and wife as a shark swam behind them!
After the ceremony, Jessie and Tommie snuggled for portraits underneath stingrays and outside at the Tampa Riverwalk. Schools of metal fish circled the card table, and metal seagulls created a gorgeous background for their sweetheart and cake tables. Coral-like centerpieces, conch shells, and more starfish decorated the reception tables. The happy newly weds finished the night off with a beautiful sparkler exit. We can’t think of a more perfect place for a couple of ocean lovers to spend one of the most important days of their lives!
