Late April provided a perfect day for Melissa and AJ’s elegant and posh wedding celebration in Tampa, Florida. 2Birds Events pulled the event together seamlessly to include a soft color palette of mint, peach, blush and ivory, and lavish accents that reflected the couple’s personality and southern roots. Arm-in-arm with her father, the bride glided down the aisle in a sheer-sleeved, lace embroidered gown from Sincerity Bridal, holding a gorgeous bouquet of peach and blush blooms with succulents and hints of dusty miller. Teary-eyed and with glowing smiles, Melissa and AJ greeted each other at the altar before exchanging vows in a traditional ceremony at the beautiful Mary Help of Christians Parish. After being announced husband and wife, the newlyweds joined friends and family at an elaborate reception in Tampa’s beautiful ballroom in Higgins Hall–complete with vintage touches and ritzy details, from the cigars and luxurious homemade soap favors for guests to the extraordinary meal provided by Catering by the Family and soft romantic floral arrangements. Captured by Michelle Horn of Horn Photography, a wedding photographer based in Dahlonega, Georgia, this wedding day was filled with everything that emulated utter romance and lavish elegance.
