They entered the room, hand in hand and heart in heart, with smiles on their faces and an extra pep in their step. Now, after what felt like a lifetime of waiting, they were husband and wife. And as they walked onto the dance floor, and through the tunnel made by their very best friends, the air filled with confetti in the most magical of ways. It swirled through the air and when the last piece had fallen onto the floor around them, he took her hand and led her to the very center of the room, to dance the most important of dances. And there, in a room full of their most favorite faces, they held each other close. Only hearing the words of the song they swayed to, and only seeing each other . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Lynette and Justin are married! The two of them spent the morning getting ready at the Marriott Waterside, before heading to a traditional ceremony at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Ybor. Lynette looked stunning in a fitted gown, and her bridal look was perfectly accented by the bridesmaid’s plum dresses with asymmetrical straps and floral lace detail. After the ceremony guests entered a reception space filled with plum and gold accents, with a mix of high and low centerpieces and gold Chivari chairs. One entire side of the room was dedicated to pictures of the couple, which made for the most awesome gallery wall, and the dance floor was centered on a dreamy star-like backdrop that made the room feel so warm and ethereal.
We loved so many moments of this day, but our favorite may just be how Lynette and Justin were welcomed to their reception. When it was time for their entrance, the newlyweds ran through a tunnel of bridal party members and were greeted with a ton of confetti! It was such a fun moment and a wonderfully fitting way to kick off the party that ensued that night. At the end of a truly epic dance party, everyone headed outside to send the love birds away with a romantic sparkler exit. From start to finish it was just a perfect celebration for two people just perfect for each other!
Lynette and Justin, thank you guys SO much for such a fun day! We loved every minute of it and hope you love this little highlight reel every bit as much!
Love + Laughs,
