Modern Wedding at The Westshore Grand Hotel

Mary and Alex tied the knot in downtown Tampa last weekend with a modern wedding at The Westshore Grand Hotel! You may remember seeing Mary and Alex’s stunning engagement photos in Washington, D.C. earlier in the summer. We were looking forward to seeing them again and having the privilege to celebrate this day with them!!

The day before the wedding, they had a traditional Nigerian engagement celebration with family and close friends. I had seen some videos in their stories on Instagram and it looked like so much fun! When we arrived at the hotel on Saturday morning, we ran into Alex in the lobby before heading upstairs to Mary’s room and he revealed they had been up until around 3 a.m. that morning! Even though they must have both been exhausted, you never would have known it. It was two full days of celebration, joy, family, friends, and glamour… just wait until you see Mary’s bridal portraits and their SECOND entrance into the reception!!

There are so many things I could say about this wedding but I’ll just mention a few to note as you see the day unfold in images. There is a long standing Nigerian tradition of spraying money on the new couple (usually done during dancing). Mary and Alex’s first look was absolutely adorable; one of the best reactions we’ve ever seen from a Groom! And their custom marquee in the ballroom was the perfect cherry on top of a fabulous day!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Solis! We love you!
