Melissa and Jamie chose the Hotel Zamora on St. Pete Beach as the venue for their wedding ceremony on a beautiful evening in early October.
The Hotel Zamora on St. Pete Beach, is a white-washed Mediterranean palace that though breathtakingly modern, feels anchored in a bygone era. Inspired by the architecture of its namesake Spanish province, the hotel’s striking Romanesque façade is the framework for expansive luxury suites with balconies overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Gulf of Mexico, stylish dining and the laid-back leisure of Florida’s fashionable Tampa Bay.
Melissa looked amazing as she made her way down the outside staircase and was escorted down the aisle to join Jamie in front of their wedding arch on the Bayside Deck. The couples’ custom designed ceremony included a Special Remembrance for Jamie’s father, and Melissa’s brother and stepsister; The Art of Marriage, The Warming of the Rings and Jumping the Broom. Then, in front of their family and friends, the couple shared their vows, exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies.
Ceremony music was provided by violinist Omari Dillard; Florals, Décor and Wedding Planning provided by Royal Events and Services; and Venue Coordination by Madelynn and the rest of the staff at Hotel Zamora. Special thanks to Darlene Barlows Photography for providing this beautiful picture of the happy couple after their ceremony.
Congratulations Jamie and Melissa!
