Edgy Downtown Tampa Same Sex Wedding

Never Have I Ever been married until 3-10-17! Congratulations to Ryan and Nicholas of NHIE Tampa! 

They killed it! They had a HUGE party for their nearest few hundred friends and family in the heart of downtown Tampa. They got ready at Le Meridien, the details and textures there were absolutely perfect for their style. The first look on the steps was amazing! We also hit up Water Works park for their formals and were blessed with amazing light and weather. I was so excited to photograph the ceremony at the new amazing venue the Hip Room as well! I was calling it the Hop Hop room for months lol, now I know 🙂 

Their ceremony was not only hilarious but also deeply moving and the energy that exploded when they kissed was insane! Florist Fire did an amazing job with greenery, giving the industrial space just enough refinement and edge. She then blew everyone away at Rialto for the reception with the most stunning arrangements of succulents in stoneware ever! I especially loved the sentimental details on each place setting, little bits of love notes and texts from their courtship spanning 10 years. 

Before DJ Fresh kicked off the party with an introduction like I have never seen before we were able to sneak onto the roof for something extra special. They brought the box that they closed up at the proposal, inside was a bottle of champagne and love letters written that very day.  We took it up to the roof of the Rialto (something they never allow!) and they opened it as the sun set. Of course they had put the box in the fridge so that the Vueve was cold. OK. I see you guys. They toasted their marriage and read their love letters, it was magic!

 Once it was time to start the reception practically ever guest swamped the dance floor to rally the new Mr. & Mr. into what I’m sure was the most amazing night of their lives! I hope you enjoy these sneaks! CONGRATULATIONS again you guys!!
