Like a lot of brides, Lanny started planning on her own and quickly learned how time consuming and stressful it can be. She contacted us in January of 2021 looking for assistance. She explained she wanted to get married in April but was finding it very difficult contacting all the vendors while working and April was fast approaching. I explained our options and she chose full planning which she later described as "best decision I made".
After doing some venue research for her we landed on the Tampa Garden Club. TGC offered the couple the water views and indoor/outdoor space they wanted at a reasonable price. Being a Tampa native, I love that they chose such an iconic Tampa location.
Lanny shared her mood board with me and it was evident she had a pretty clear vision of the overall aesthetics of the wedding; crisp white flowers with blue and silver highlights for a crisp, fresh and elegant event. Danielle with Save the Date Florida replicated her flower choices beautifully and the blue linens provided by Olympia Catering added the pop of color to the reception. We were able to accomplish Lanny's wish list budget item of the white window and ceiling draping along with up light from Gabro Events Services after carefully managing the budget.
Lanny and Leonardo both come from Latin American backgrounds and wanted their ceremony performed in Spanish. We used Sensational Ceremonies who stepped in at the last minute for Crystal with Ceremony by Crystal due to illness. They did an amazing job. Maria Leja Photo is responsible for these gorgeous photos and her Spanish skills were helpful with organizing friends and family for photos. However, Dj Dani gets kudos for mc'ing the entire event in Spanish and playing the most awesome Latin music all night. Lanny, Leo and their guests did the salsa and merengue with serious skill. It was a lot of fun to watch. Lanny had an outfit change into a lighter dress so she could get serious about her dance moves.
Lanny and Leonardo were a joy to work with and it was an honor to be a part of such a fun day. We are now looking forward to the birth of their baby in October and wish them all the happiness in the world! They will forever be a part of the EventFull Wedding family.
