Their’s is a love that comes easily. They don’t cuddle up simply because cameras or other people are around, and entwining their fingers comes as naturally to them as breathing. He whispers the kindest of words into her ear on a whim and she looks at him with an adoration that is so easy to see. They love each other not because it’s something they are supposed to do, or because of a promise that was made, but simply because it’s who they are. Each a half of a whole, a perfect complement to the soul they were so clearly put on this earth to be with. And that day, they celebrated their decision to do just that for the rest of their days . . . .

Cheyenne and Brennan are married, and the two of them traveled all the way from Hawaii to have a gorgeous wedding day in Tampa! The color palette of the day consisted of red, white and blue, which beautifully complemented Brennan’s Navy dress blues. And as if that wasn’t already perfectly themed enough, there were so many amazing nautical accents in the details, from Cheyenne’s anchor accented Dolce & Gabana wedges all the way down to the groomsmen’s tie pattern. So much perfection! We also adored all of the heartfelt touches throughout the day, from the journal and worry stone Cheyenne gifted Brennan with to his super sweet (and tear-filled) reaction to seeing her at their first look. This day may have looked good, but it felt event better.
After a traditional ceremony the bridal party spent some time exploring Ybor for some seriously stunning portraits, and then headed to meet the wedding guests at the historic Columbia restaurant. The tables were filled with Hawaiian cookies for guests to snack on and florals in the colors of the day, and glasses were filled with the Columbia’s amazing sangria. And after the traditional dances some of Brennan’s family surprised the newlyweds with a dance performance that had everyone smiling the widest of smiles. Guests feasted on a myriad of incredibly delish Spanish favorites for dinner, and fueled their dancing by digging into not one but two insanely gorgeous cakes. And at the end of an epic dance party everyone grabbed a sparkler to send the newlyweds off in style!
Cheyenne and Brennan, thank you for such an amazing weekend (and for the seriously perfect baby gift!). We loved being a part of every minute of your wedding weekend and hope you love these every bit as much as we loved taking them!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
