Every time I meet a new couple, I wonder...will we connect? When I was invited to Ryan and Kristina's...well I already knew half of that answer, because Ryan has been a groomsmen in two previous weddings that I have photographed, and well, we had a GREAT time. And about 20 minutes into our meeting, I knew Kristina and were going to get along great. We gabbed for hours! By the time their wedding day came, it was like watching two of my friends get married.
Speaking of their wedding...lets just talk about this wedding...my god... I was in awe. First, can we just talk about this vintage car that delivered the bride to the the Harborside Chapel, which by the way, was a dream! It's absolutely stunning. Beautiful lighting, flooring and white everything with the slightest touch of light wood. Stunning grounds for portraits, there is literally nothing that isn't perfect. It was the most amazing setting for Ryan and Kristina to be married, to start their marriage and celebrate their relationship with their family and friends.
I love that Ryan and Kristina chose a first look, a moment to not only see each other, and enjoy that moment, but it gave them time to spend together on their wedding day alone, to be relaxed, to laugh together, and love on each other, with no one else around (although they were peaking through windows making faces at them haha). Not to mention, the brides hair and makeup was still fresh! Of course the wedding party had to jump in for their photos too right after...which was incredibly fun. The guys ... oh the guys. Where to start.... you really can't. They kept it really entertaining, and these gorgeous girls with their incredible Gatsby themed dresses... ugh.
Anyways, a short vintage car ride away, and these two danced the night away with all of their favorite people at the Safety Harbor spa & resort. From the perfectly choreographed first danced, to the incredible dance offs, lets be real...people will be talking for a long time about this wedding! Check it out!!!
