Did you ever think you’d call a sports themed wedding elegant? Well, today’s red Tampa wedding will prove you wrong! I love the way this couple was able to translate their passion, sports, into a beautiful black tie affair! There are so many great details here that prove you can take inspiration from anywhere.

The gorgeous bride Lauren shares the details:

My husband Al and I met playing flag football; sports are very important to us. We are sports fanatics! When thinking about our wedding theme our event desinger asked us “what we like?” and “what are interests are?”…We said sports, never thinking we’d have a sports theme wedding (we didn’t think it would be elegant enough to have at a black tie wedding). We were wrong! MMD Events hit the nail on the head giving us a elegant classy reception while bring out our sporty personalities.

A few favorite parts of the day:
– Getting ready with my mom, sister, and bridesmaids
– My first look with my dad
– Seeing my husband for the first time when I walked down the aisle
– Our first kiss as husband and wife
– The father daughter dance
– Seeing the beautiful sports reception
– My sister’s Maid of Honor Speech/ rap song
– Celebrating and dancing with my family and friends
