Linzy and Michael dreamed of a Tarpon Springs wedding that embraced the groom’s Greek heritage in a timeless, classic way that wasn’t too formal.
To provide guidance and clarity, our Tampa Bay wedding planning team worked with the couple to narrow down their vision to something they would love for a lifetime. Avoiding anything too trendy, our designers suggested a color palette of navy, silver, and white, which happened to be Linzy and Michael’s favorite colors and provided that timeless look they were going for.
“We didn’t necessarily have a set theme before we met with our wedding planners, Parties A La Carte, who then put my exact theme I couldn’t describe into words: romantic, lush, and lux,” the bride beamed. “I had so many pictures on my Pinterest boards and PALC really made my dream come to life.”
They were searching for a planning team to take away the stress of planning and bring their vision to life and it was a joy to deliver!
We often work with brides who know they want, but can’t envision how to achieve their look, but with the right coaching and input from the couple, we were able to exceed Linzy and Michael’s expectations.
“Jessica and her team are truly angels. I am indecisive, and I had ideas of what I wanted but didn’t know how to portray it. I have been dreaming of this day since I was a little girl, and the girls at PALC made all of our wedding dreams come true!” the bride gushed. “Everything just became easy when we hired them. From all of the planning to the day of was a breeze. Our one mistake from our whole wedding was not hiring them from the beginning of the planning process!”
The bride and groom’s love for Greek culture was at the forefront of their Tampa Bay wedding day goals, with delicious food and all night dancing.
“The elements that were most important to us were the culture, the food, the atmosphere, and the photography. We wanted a true Greek wedding that wouldn’t be completely overwhelming to someone who wasn’t Greek,” Linzy explained. “There was not one person sitting in the seats when the Greek songs came on! It was truly incredible to watch my family who has never done a Greek dance before, learning the new dances from Michael’s family and friends.”
