Hey friends!! Remember that blog post I was going to share two weeks ago and then didn’t because I got married? Well, here it is! Yay! (And yes, I am now a MRS.!!)
Austin and Stephanie’s wedding on April 13th was, simply put, a fantastic experience. Not only was it an honor to see two people with a beautiful love for each other, surrounded by family and friends, join in marriage, but every moment of their special day was filled with fun! From the guys matching ties and Austin and Stephanie’s touching letter exchange to the ice cream truck and cigar bar at the end of the night, the celebration didn’t stop.
As second shooter, alongside my girl Caroline, I got to spend the first part of the day with the gentlemen. We had a blast walking down the street in Ybor and the energy coming from these guys was unreal. It was obvious that Austin has a group of lifelong brothers here. We joined up with the guests and the ladies at CL Space in Ybor City, which is an amazing venue. Thankfully, the rain held off because the ceremony and pre-reception were outside and it was perfect. After the ceremony, the cutest ice cream truck showed up!! Such a clever (and delicious) idea! After wedding party photos, the reception began inside with the most clever wedding party entrances, the cutest first dance I’ve ever witnessed, touching speeches, and delicious food stations. The photo booth, cigar bar, and games opened in the courtyard as the sun went down while we stole Austin and Stephanie away for some gorgeous sunset photos (seriously speechless from these). The evening ended with a hilarious cake cutting, flower toss, garter toss, a traditional sie leben hoch toast and finally, a sparkler send off for the books. What a day!
Thank you for letting me be part of your special day Austin and Stephanie, y’all are the sweetest!
