The Florida Aquarium Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

Welcome to the Florida Aquarium a great place to celebrate your wedding day nuptials! Lighting setup by Nature Coast Entertainment services under the ceremony chairs really added an extra special affect for the otherwise dark room. It was the extra touch that really set the mood for the ceremony. In the front row sat a photo frame with a photo of the brides late grandfather so he would be remembered during the wedding ceremony infront of the main tank.  The couple exchanged vows and moved into the wetlands area to enjoy their formals/couples photos with stops along the way to photograph next to some of the main tanks. Their reception was done on the outdoors portion of the Aquarium and had a monogram floor. Woodwork on their guest tables as well as their gift table were all done by the groom. The couple danced the night away under the stars of the Florida Aquarium Tampa. It was great photographing such a beautiful wedding with two wonderful people and their families!

Museum Of Fine Arts Wedding St Marys Catholic Church| Jena & Joe | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

Ceremony Location: St Mary’s Church St Petersburg, Florida

Reception Location:  The Fine Arts Museum   St Petersburg, Florida

Videography:   Celebrations Of Tampa Bay

DJ/Entertainment: JAC of all Trades


I actually didn’t meet the bride and groom until later in the process as Jena’s dad was really handling most of the wedding details and vendors. Tony, the brides dad was very detail oriented being an event and interior decorator her really had some great ideas to make his daughters wedding to be a dream come true. The bride got ready at her fathers beautiful home and then was taken by limo to St Marys Catholic Church for the traditional catholic ceremony. After the ceremony and some formals we met the couple at their reception location at The Museum of fine arts in St Petersburg, Florida. We love the grounds and were delighted at the sight of the inside reception. The Museum has many areas to photograph the couple including a little outside garden. The reception location was adorned in beautiful linens and a monogram of the couples initials covering the walls. A lounge couch sat off to the side and beautiful up lighting lined the walls of the room- The cake sat on crystal covered stands designed and built by the grooms father. The couple did a lantern sendoff to remember those who could not attend the wedding- a beautiful personal touch. This Fine arts museum wedding was beautiful!

Tampa Wedding The Rusty Pelican | Alex & Tiffany


Tiffany and Alex had their engagement session in Ybor and we were super excited for their wedding day at the Rusty Pelican a hidden beauty at the end of  Tampa Bay. Tiffany was a beautiful bride and picked a great location. Their son was a huge part of their wedding day. He even took part in their first look at the Tampa Hilton where they both were getting ready for their walk down the aisle at the Rusty Pelican. Their reception was in the large room overlooking the water and Tampa with ceiling drapes and lots of decor bling. Purple was included in their demask style cake and her beautiful shoes. The location holds an outdoor fireplace that made a great place for some of their formals. They danced the night away at the rusty pelican enjoying their family and friends company along with their son on such an important day in their lives!

Islamorada Wedding The Ocean House Keys Wedding | Ryan & Alex | Islamorada Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography


Islamorada Wedding The Ocean House Keys Wedding | Ryan & Alex


Ryan and Alex were a great couple who did things a little non traditional at their wedding. Instead of doing a first look they decided on a first touch to still make their first view at the ceremony but get to have those few moments together before the walk down the aisle. They decided on a great little destination spot on Islamorada. The Ocean House is this little hotel, a hidden gem, on Islamorada– A great place to have a wedding and exchange their vows. A little tiki hut served as their dance floor area with a pool and firepit all within the reception area. They were such a fun couples!  At the cake table photos of the couple lined a clothes line setup with photos of themselves and the grooms adorable son. The little guy walked down the aisle with the most adorable sign!!. Instead of the traditional wedding cake being served, donuts were served in honor of the grooms profession- Cop. It was a beautiful wedding to photograph we would love to shoot another wedding at this location because of the variety the property offers their couples!
