Tampa Museum of Art | Wedding

As college sweethearts ourselves, we absolutely love photographing weddings for couples who met and fell in love in college!  Melissa and Tevyn met at Auburn University, got engaged by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and were so excited that their wedding had finally arrived!  Their day could not have been more beautiful, and Rita of Aria Events Inc. ensured every detail was nothing short of perfection!  We began the morning with Tevyn and his groomsmen at their Airbnb.  We then headed to the JW Marriott Water Street Hotel where the ladies had spent the morning with Say I Do Artistry on hair and CI Beauty on makeup. Melissa put on her gorgeous gown and shared a sweet first look with her father before we travelled to the Tampa Museum of Art with Star Trolley.

Upon arrival at the museum, we captured a few portraits before guests gathered for the ceremony.  The tears began as Tevyn watched his beautiful bride walking down the aisle.  It was such a joy documenting such sweet emotions alongside Jennifer of The Little Moments.  Melissa and Tevyn exchanged vows and exited all smiles surrounded by their family and friends.  Following the ceremony, we captured wedding party and family photos before setting off to explore for golden hour portraits of the newlyweds.

We returned for cocktail hour on the Terrace followed by the reception in the Atrium. The space looked incredible with florals by 2Birds Events, decor by Kate Ryan Rentals, and lighting by The Production Crew.  Guests enjoyed dinner by SaltBlock Hospitality, speeches, and dessert from CaraMel’s Bakery, and the evening came to a close with dancing to live music with the Bay Kings Band.  Melissa and Tevyn, your wedding was absolutely incredible, and we hope that your honeymoon in Europe is every bit as amazing!
