Kim and Chip held their wedding at the historic Floridan Palace Hotel in Tampa, Florida. Their actual wedding ceremony was in a church nearby. Kim says she met Chip through mutual friends, and it wasn’t long before they both knew they would soon be more than friends! Chip proposed to Kim on a sailboat while on a weekend trip to Fort Myers, and before they knew it, they were planning their Tampa wedding! Shortly after the reception Chip’s Fire company surprised everyone with a visit! The truck made for the perfect photo opportunity! We took a ride to the University of Tampa for more portraits, while guests enjoyed cocktail hour at the hotel. The fireman theme played a big role during the reception in Chip’s groomsmen cake, as well as the fire axe used to cut the cake! Alessi Bakery designed the couple’s cake. The DeLeon band kept guests on the floor all night! Special thanks to Jennifer Burkle and Natalie Codella of Burkle Events for helping plan Kim and Chip’s perfect day! Hair and makeup: “Make Me Up” by Valentina. Cheryl at Tampa Wedding Studio designed the flowers, drapery, and reception uplighting.
