There was a feeling in the air that day. And it didn’t come at any specific time, or during any particular event. It wasn’t only because he whispered something sweet in her ear, or because she was simply excited the day was finally here. It was just there, from the first time she stepped into her dress to later that night when he would twirl her in it. Everything felt so genuine. It all just felt so real, and perfectly authentic that you knew the love they were there to celebrate was the real thing. That it would stand the test of time. Because the way he looked at her that day when he first saw her, and the way she laughed when her smile simply couldn’t get any bigger, that’s the stuff real-life love stories are made of. . . .

Nadia and Casey are married! The day started off perfectly with Nadia’s ridiculously gorgeous details (can we just talk about those Kate Spade shoes?!) before a super sweet first look in downtown Tampa. We loved the energy pouring out of both of them as they giddily got to see each other for the first time that day, and how easily they moved into their portrait time afterwards. Casey was cracking jokes that had Nadia (and the rest of us!) laughing all day, and being with them and their sweet bridal party was so, so much fun for us. And speaking of fun, these two had a reception that was pretty much the best party ever! The dance floor was packed all night long, and we loved getting to sneak outside with some of the guys for some fun cigar pictures.
Nadia + Casey, I hope it goes without saying that we absolutely love you two to bits. Thank you both for an amazing day, and for the incredible honor of documenting it all for you both.
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
