Rooftop Proposal 3.9.2018

Liebler Proposal.


At the end of 2017 Jeff told a few of his closest friends that he was thinking about proposing to Tiffany, and that he had bought her the most beautiful ring. Everyone anxiously awaited (without pestering too much) for the details of when and where the proposal would happen. I was so ecstatic when Jeff called me in February and told me that he was ready to start the process of planning the big proposal. We met for coffee at Starbucks and I teared up throughout most of the meeting while Jeff told me his ideas and vision for the big night. I left excited to be a part of the proposal process, ready to nail down the details and anxious to call the guests to give direction for the night. Every year for Jeff’s birthday he and Tiffany kick off his birthday celebration on St. Pete Beach. They have frequently visited the Kimpton Hotel Zamora rooftop bar and Jeff knew that this would be the perfect location for him to propose to Tiffany in front of their closest friends and family. Several weeks after our initial consult we met with the venue manager at the hotel to discuss the details of the night as well as a backup plan in case of bad weather. Jeff, Tiffany and a few of their friends would eat dinner at the Castile Grill located inside the restaurant, then would head to the rooftop for a few drinks to end the night. Tiffany had no idea that waiting on the rooftop would be 20 of their closest friends and family, flower petals lining the “go spot,” live music, candles, champagne and dessert for celebrating after. When dinner was finished, the rest of the dinner guests headed to the rooftop while Jeff & Tiffany finished paying their tab. It just so happened to be one of the coldest winter nights so there was no one on the roof top other than the invited guests and musician. It was hard to keep quiet as everyone was bursting with anticipation as Jeff and Tiffany stepped off the elevator and began walking to the edge of the rooftop. As they walked towards the proposal spot, Tiffany looked confused and at one point commented to Jeff that she “thought they were walking into somebody else’s stuff,” to which Jeff kept his cool, smiled and continued to lead her to the proposal spot where the ring waited on top of a pillow stating “She Said Yes!”

Keisha was a totally trusting Bride with minimal wants for her wedding day other than to have an amazing time with her closes friends, family and husband! We began her wedding planning process 9 months before the big day and I found that Keisha's relaxed attitude made the entire process so enjoyable and such a breeze. Keisha involved her mom (who lived in TX) in as many of the details as possible and the three of us worked together to make sure all the plans came together exactly as envisioned. Watermark Church is a beautiful venue with natural lighting and many wood accents including historic hard wood floors and a stunning steeple ceiling. We knew that if we went overboard with the theme and decor we would take away from the venue instead of adding to it, so we continued the wood and "earthy" elements theme throughout our decor and color choices. The bridesmaids wore earthy tones that accented the venue and all the natural elements used throughout the ceremony and reception. ABC events provided a beautiful arch with accent floral arrangements and wreath's that were used on the chairs during the ceremony then moved to the tables to be used as centerpieces during our reception (budget friendly!) Abuelos provided a Mexican buffet for the guests while Grant Hemond kept everyone entertained and the dance floor full during our reception. Keisha and JJ opted for a BOYB event so all guests brought their drink of choice to have during cocktail hour and the reception. Keisha and JJ decided to not do a first look and trust me when I say there was not a moment without tears during the ceremony  starting from the second JJ saw Keisha walking down the aisle, during heartfelt affirmation and vows by the Bride and Groom and until shots were taken by the groomsmen during the first kiss at the end! Once the ceremony ended the reception was kicked off with champagne bottles popping,  a full dance floor, Keisha's dance shoes lit up bright and a non stop party until their sparkler exit at the end of the night!
