Tampa Wedding Photography The Preserve at Alafia | Savannah & Micah | Kristen Marie Photography Tampa Wedding Photographer

 

Tampa Wedding Photography The Preserve at Alafia

 

Savannah And Micah were married in a beautiful ceremony at a beautiful location. The Preserve at Alafia is actually an apartment complex (I know I was shocked too at how beautiful the location was!!). The location housed a stunning clubhouse overlooking the Alafia River. Savannah designed the table layout herself with some help from family. The tables were graced with a rustic but nautical feel with burlap table runners and beautiful red roses  The cooking was also a family affair with mom and dad assisting with cooking the delicious meal for their guests. Savannah and Micah decided on a first look for their ceremony to make their ceremony more relaxed for the two of them. The location being right on the water had a little beach with an abandoned doc on the opposite end of the site. It made for a great setup for their couples shots. I was leery of them getting on the old dock but the two were game for everything and hopped right up on it and it really was one of my favorite sets of them for the day!!  It was a beautiful wedding with two wonderful people!

Sunken Gardens St Petersburg Wedding | Rick and Chely | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

 Sunken Gardens St Petersburg Wedding

Sunken Gardens in St Petersburg is a magical place to get married. Chely was a referral from a past couple and was only in need of a short amount of time for their very intimate wedding. Meeting with her went great! They were planning on marrying at the Sunken Gardens in St Petersburg with just a very few immediate family members. The day came and as I was driving to the Sunken Gardens a gray cloud appeared by the time I arrived it was drizzling soon after it was a monsoon.  We waited and waited with the bride sitting in her car. Alternative plans were discussed which involved the hallway or potentially the kids area because the rain just wasn’t letting up. I felt like it was going to let up and suggested just a little while longer I was going to stay until we got what we needed. I am so glad they decided to wait because the rain cleared and the sun appeared. With about 8 guests they exchanged vows under the canopy of the trees. We had just enough time for their couples formals before the park closed. Take a look below.

You have seen a lot of this Davis Island Garden Club Wedding and You’ve seen some of Nic & Brittany over the last year.It started last year with their engagement session and now their wedding and wedding previews that have been on the blog and on facebook since they married in June. Nic’s classic car was a staple at their engagement session and made an appearance at their Davis Island Garden Club wedding.  It rained all through the morning hours and the groom made the call to delay the ceremony a little and use the beautifully floral that was setup outside for their evening ceremony.  The night went on without a hitch for the couple including delicious cupcakes from the amazing GIGI’s Cupcakes Tampa and a sparkler exit. Enjoy their wedding below

Honeymoon Island Bridal Session | Jessica Bridal Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

Jessica wanted to do a rustic session for her bridal session and Honeymoon Island offers just that. We were concerned about her dress getting dirty and decided a beach was far less of a risk then dirt in a park. Honeymoon island has such a variety of areas that we felt it was the perfect place to capture her bridal portraits. One of these was displayed at her wedding as well. Brides are normally on the fence about whether they need a Bridal session or not- I think it’s a great idea allowing for a little extra time on their wedding day for other portraits then just those of them by themselves.
