There was a sense of calm in the air of the church that day. Not due to a lack of excitement or joy or anticipation, but simply out of a sense of sureness. In the way you could tell that, without out a doubt, they each were exactly where they were meant to be. That when it came to choosing a soulmate, it actually wasn’t a choice at all. It was simply fate. And there, in a church filled with warm light and the people that had shaped them into who they were that day, they stood before each other. Promising love, and forever, and commitment. And most importantly to choose each other always . . .

Christine and Cameron are married! Christine and her girls got ready at home before a traditional ceremony in downtown Tampa and a reception at the Tampa Airport Marriott. We loved all of the rituals of the ceremony, including the crowning and the lighting of the candles, which made the entire thing feel so meaningful and rooted in tradition. The couple’s impeccable style came through in their best day ever ensembles, with Christine in a perfectly fitted Cosmobella dress, and Cameron in a well-cut suit and textured shirt and bow tie. We may have swooned just a little when it came time for their portraits together!
Afterwards they headed to the reception space which was decorated with clean centerpieces and gold Chivari chairs. The ballroom at the hotel had a quirky curve to all the walls we thought was so unique, and guests got to watch the planes taxi in and out while they hung out at cocktail hour. Once everyone was seated, the party got off to an amazing start with a performance by Ari and the Alibis (who were just plain awesome!) and the night only got more fun from there!
Christine + Cameron, you two had such a wonderful day that we were so very thankful to be a part of! Hope you are having fun on your honeymoon adventure, and we can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
