There’s no other word for them but genuine. It’s there in the way she laughs with her whole soul, eyes glowing and warmth emanating from her smile. And in the way he listens wholeheartedly, no matter if it’s to a bad joke or something much more important. They’re the kind of people you think of when you picture happily ever after or the timeless love stories that inspired sonnets and storybooks. And that day, they began the next chapter of their favorite story, which just to happened to be the one they were writing together . . . .

Carly and TC are married! They had a beautiful ceremony at the Florida Aquarium (complete with penguin ring bearers!) followed by an awesome tank side reception that night. We were thrilled that they opted to do a first look beforehand, which was just about the sweetest ever, and loved that we were able to capture some stunning natural light portraits to go with the gorgeous moody ones we got at the aquarium later that night.
For bridal party attire, Carly chose floor-length black gowns for her ladies which complemented the classic attire of the groomsmen perfectly. She picked a perfectly form fitting lace-trimmed gown for herself, and we absolutely adored that TC topped off his look with a velvet bowtie. It was timeless perfection!
Carly + TC, we just adore you two to bits and are not only so thankful to know you guys but humbled to have been invited into your love story. Thank you both for being so incredibly sweet through this whole process!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
