Stacey always dreamed of a beach wedding, but was unsure of it becoming a reality since she was living in Pennsylvania. What a joy it was when she moved to Florida; perhaps a beach wedding could happen after all. Living in Tampa and being able to see the ocean so often really made Stacey believe that dreams can come true.
It was just a matter of finding a venue to match their beach theme. When they heard about the ocean views at the Grand Plaza Hotel, they jumped at the opportunity.
Being creative people by nature, Stacey and Justin, incorporated their personalities into the design of the reception hall, accenting the tables with fanned turquoise napkins and elegant place settings. Their cake was beautiful shades of blue and turquoise, flanked by starfish sea shells. “Just another day in paradise, barefoot in the sand,” was their theme.
Finding the Perfect Wedding Day Photographer
When looking for a photographer to capture this most important step in our lives, it was most important for us to find someone who had uniqueness and dedication to pleasing their clients. I fell in love with Castorina Photography and Films and their [photos and videos].
Most Important Moments
“Making memories to remember our day forever, and sharing our day with close family and friends”
–Stacey and Justin
Stacey and Justin will never forget the beauty of having their perfect beach wedding, feeling the warmth of the sun on their skin, hearing the waves of the ocean crash in the background, and feeling the soft sand beneath their feet. The photos truly captured their love for each other, and their love for the natural beauty that St. Pete beach provides.
