Florida natives LeJeune and Jarelle’s wanted a Tampa wedding that was elegant and unforgettable. Their styles blended with their vision; bringing the most graceful moments along with it. Opting for a first touch, the two valued the short time in prayer; making for one of the best parts of their day.
They were united with an outdoor ceremony, their adorable daughter serving as flower girl, with the scenic waters drifting behind them. “I wanted something elegant and unforgettable,” says the LeJeune. “Our venue choice was ideal because I wanted an outdoor experience by water.” Lush greens and accents of red and pink blooms dressed the entrance to the gazebo where they recited their vows, as family and friends witnessed their love; sitting in aisles lined with candles and petals. As LeJeune walked down the aisle in her embellished gown and draped back-detailing, the expression on Jarelle’s face as he stood in his modern red tuxedo jacket was a true indication of the love they share.
Their reception was regal and romantic. Gold and burgundy decor with pops of pink and ivory shined. Tall centerpieces accompanied by floating candles were integrated with low centerpiece designs adding depth into the details. However it was their sweetheart table that took center stage, including an ivory and gold encrusted settee and a table draped in burgundy linens and bold blooms.
The elegance continued into their cake design, filled with fresh flowers and trimmed with sparkles. They called it “Glimmering Love” – a name so fitting for such a royal affair.
