What could be more perfect than a wedding day filled with sunshine, coastal views, and the most darling bride and groom? Not much, we say! And, we especially believe it after seeing Michelle & Bill's beautiful Tampa wedding day. With a focus on fun and letting Bill's love of fishing shine, the sweet couple created a celebration with Tracie Domino Events at St. Petersburg Yacht Club that was filled with just that — good times and unforgettable details! Thankfully for us bystanders (we're still a little grumpy we weren't on the guest list for this beautiful, memory-filled day!), Jacqui Cole Photography captured it all. Check it out!

When Michelle & Bill started planning their wedding, the emphasis was on FUN! They decided on the St. Petersburg Yacht Club, where Michelle and her family have been members for years and where Bill's parents were members years ago before relocating to Tallahassee, FL. As Bill is an avid fisherman, the yacht club had special meaning and it's proximity to a local park for an outdoor ceremony location made it the perfect choice.
Working with Botanica International Design Studio, we designed a party atmosphere in a cocktail style setting complete with food stations representative of some Tampa traditions, including paella and grouper sliders, as well as bar stools and lounge furniture to make guests interact.
From the fish included on their invitation to the bananas foster station and the DJ playing 70s hits, everything about this wedding was perfectly "Michelle & Bill."
Michelle & Bill love everything about the outdoors, from boating to tailgating for Florida State University football games. While Bill catches fish, Michelle loves to spend time on the boat with him catching up on her magazines.
