Since meeting Gaby and Aric, we knew that their wedding would be nothing short of a fun and amazing day. It’s safe to say that we were right! Gaby is sweet and sassy and Aric is a total jokester. We were laughing all day…and so were they! The two met at a Lightning game a couple of years ago and Aric told his friend shortly after that he was going to marry that girl. And here they are!
Their beautiful wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church was witnessed by a large group of friends and family. Gaby and Aric have an adorable 4 month old baby girl, Annabella, so it was so special for mom and dad to officially become husband and wife with her there. We lucked out with clear skies on Saturday, which made lots of time for outside portraits of our couple and bridal party. While guests went off to enjoy cocktail hour, complete with a cigar rolling station, we managed to hop aboard a boat on the water (Gaby and Aric were down for anything…our favorite kind of couple!) and catch some great light before the sun started to set and the real party started at the wedding reception.
The beautiful ballroom of the Tampa Marriott Waterside was decorated with colors of peach, berry, and gold. Gaby wanted the style to be representative of old Florida, with latin infusions, so the tables featured lace runners, tall, floral centerpieces, candelabras, and candlelight. Lounge vignettes were also set up around the reception, as well as folding screens with pictures of Gaby and Aric. Guests enjoyed the Bay Kings Band live music, danced the night away, and sipped on our couple’s signature drinks: margaritas and Mexican mules. Aric also loves craft beer, so that was also incorporated at the bar.
We wish our bride and groom a lifetime of happiness and love and can’t wait to watch their family grow. Congrats Gaby and Aric!
