It’s not everyday that we get to ‘marry off’ one of our own, but on April 14, Rachael (one of our Wedding Planners) walked down the aisle with her then-fiance, Seth. While the couple always maintained the same vision for their wedding – a fun, relaxed atmosphere for friends and family, Rachael’s experience with planning weddings for Elan came to great assistance with making it a reality.
The weather at Tampa Bay Watch was perfect, sunny with just a slight breeze coming in from the Gulf. While Rachael and her three bridesmaids got ready, Seth and his groomsmen were having fun and taking photos at Fort De Soto Park. After the photo shoot, the boys loaded in a friend’s boat and made the ten-minute trip up to the docks at Tampa Bay Watch, catching the attention of the wedding party who waited nearby.
After a quaint ceremony officiated by a family member, guests headed for cocktail hour on the lawn where games like corn hole, bocce ball and an Ultimate Frisbee inspired game called ‘Sticks’ could be played. The couple is notorious for being laid-back, and the relaxed atmosphere really showcased their personalities.
During the reception, guests enjoyed a great plated dinner and ice cream bar by Delectable Fine Catering, while watching a breathtaking sunset fade over the water. All of the guests also enjoyed taking hundreds of funny photos in the Fotobox using homemade and company-provided props. Friends and family danced the night away and continued the party at the Alden Beach Resort and Suites the next day…
