We fell in love with this couple from the first moment we met them. They were funny, positive and lighthearted. The only problem was… they are FSU fans. But we won’t hold that against them… I even photographed the Seminoles themed groom’s cake with joy. Their wedding day was exciting, not stressed and emotional. Ben and Rachel wanted to do most of the photos before the ceremony. Fall and winter weddings often require this due to the early sunsets. This means we were treated to a beautiful first look. Both bride and groom were moved to tears. <3 We had an incredible session at the University of Tampa, a place special to the bride and groom. One of my favorite moments of the day was the grand exit from St Paul Lutheran Church. The bubbles look beautiful and it afforded the excitement of a grand exit for the bride and groom who wanted to dance into the night. This is a wonderful option for those who do not want to cut the reception short or do not have a location suitable for sparklers or confetti. The reception at the Centre Club was beautiful. The cocktail hour area is large with a beautiful bar and sweeping views. The ballroom was large with modern fixtures and dedicated bar area. The guests enjoyed the large dance floor and incredible views. Cheers!
