Austin and Ashley’s Spiritual Ceremony at the #YborCityMuseum then Reception at #Geoffrey's in #Channelside! #harpist #tampa
I was so excited when Austin, a musician like myself, contacted me to play his intimate dinner reception at Geoffrey’s Floral and Events. Austin is a very accomplished cellist and I was flattered at his request. The week of the wedding Austin found out some devastating news. The cellist performing the ceremony music became injured and was no longer able to play. The couple asked if I could fill in and I was more than happy to! I had the chance to participate in a beautiful ceremony between the lovely couple. I am so fortunate to witness such beautiful memories! The ceremony, which took place at the beautiful Ybor City Museum, was unlike any ceremony I have attended. The ceremony focused on their beliefs and spirituality. I almost forgot to mention...everyone was dressed in costumes! It was so fun! I’m still a little mad at the couple for not telling me everyone was going to be in costumes, as I would have participated in the festivities and worn my angel wings and halo. ;) Even though I looked a little out of place not being dressed in a costume, I had such a wonderful time during the ceremony. Ashley was GLOWING as she walked down the aisle to her future husband. She looked absolutely stunning. She wore a lovely gown with a gorgeous beaded hooded veil. Since I was playing the dinner reception I had a couple of hours in between. My wonderful husband and kids came and met me. We enjoyed a great dinner together which was really nice (we don’t get out much lol). I then headed over to the reception. I had a BLAST playing the reception. The guests were SO much fun and so nice. The reception location was decorated very modern but earthy. There were flowers, plants, and candles EVERYWHERE. It looked amazing! The succulent place card holders were my favorite! Thank you Ashley and Austin for having me be a part of your beautiful day! I wish you a lifetime of success and happiness!
