Tampa Florida Aquarium Wedding
On May 24, Charmaine had the honor of officiating Megan & Greg’s Tampa Florida Aquarium Wedding…..and it was awesome!
The Tampa Florida Aquarium is in the Channelside area of Tampa which is a convenient place to downtown, the airport, restaurants and many hotels. A Tampa Florida Aquarium Wedding is a great for 75-100 guests.
Megan contacted Charmaine through Wedding Wire and they corresponded months before the wedding to create a ceremony that was perfect for Megan and Greg’s fun Tampa Florida Aquarium Wedding ceremony.
Megan & Greg met through mutual friends. When they got engaged they had just visited the aquarium in Atlanta; which is where they got the idea to have their wedding at an aquarium. Megan and Greg live in Pensacola Florida so the Tampa Florida Aquarium was a central place for guests to travel to. Plus it was not too far for them to be able to have their honeymoon at Disney World in Orlando.
Their wedding took place in the Coral Reef Panoramic Room in the aquarium. Megan & Greg stood in front of the aquarium where the ceremony was performed by Charmaine. The guests could see Megan & Greg and behind them in the aquarium over 2000 beautiful fish, coral, eels, sting rays & sharks swam around and watched in on the ceremony. Greg was tearful the moment he saw his beautiful bride come down the aisle. Megan wore a stunning white dress and her father was holding back tears as he gave his daughter to Greg. That was just the beginning of the tears as both Megan & Greg were tearful with emotions as they read their vows to each other. Megan & Greg performed a hand ceremony and the wine box & love letter.
The bridal party wore knee length purple dresses and the groomsmen wore a deep gray with purple boutonnieres. The guest were asked to turn cell phones off and put cameras down and to let the photographer capture how the moment looked and capture how it feels in your hearts without the distraction of technology. After the ceremony guest were invited for cocktails while photos were taken in front of the aquarium. After the ceremony the chairs were removed and tables are set up for dinner and reception in the Coral Reef Room.
We had so much fun being involved in this beautiful Tampa Florida Aquarium Wedding! We wish Megan and Greg many years of happiness!
