They held each other close as they danced in the doorway. And as the lyrics to the song that played seemed to echo every promise they had made to each other earlier that day, they smiled the kind of smiles that seemed to come from the deepest part of their hearts. The people who meant the most to them watched from one room, and the other room sat empty with promise for what was to come. And there, turning slowly in between those two rooms, they shared their very first dance as one . . .

Ashley and Hunter are married! They had a beautiful ceremony at the always gorgeous Sacred Heart Church, before taking off for their Tampa Club reception in a classic (and just plain awesome!) Bentley. It was a rainy Florida day, with showers all through the morning and even during their ceremony, but we were blessed with sunny skies for the rest of the evening and got to hop around some of our favorite downtown Tampa spots with their super fun bridal party for portraits before heading to the party. Ashley looked every bit the perfect, timeless bride in her lace trimmed ball gown, and Hunter’s whole look (including his bowtie which was made from FEATHERS) was just awesome! We were absolutely obsessed with all of the florals throughout the day (by the always amazing 2 Birds Events) and loved how classic every single detail of the day felt. All in all it was a wonderful day for two people who couldn’t possibly deserve it more, because they both just have the kindest of hearts.
Ashley and Hunter, thank you both for not only inviting us to document your wedding day, but for making us truly feel a part of it! You guys made our jobs so incredibly easy and we loved spending the day with you both. Have an AMAZING time in Europe!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
