tampa river center wedding day: morgan + chris

“And I know I’m blessedWatching you spin in that dressMaking my heart beat out my chestI can’t count the times I’ve heardPeople say I’m luckyBut lucky ain’t the word, oh, I’m blessed . . . “
He spun her around the dance floor, pulled her into his arms and swept her up into the air. The faces of their nearest and dearest lit up and the sound of applause filled the room. It was like a freeze frame from the best of classic movies. The lyrics of the song simply couldn’t have been more perfect. Because there was no doubt in anyone’s minds, watching them laugh together in the middle of the room, that the two of them truly were blessed . . . . . .

Morgan and Chris are married! The two of them had a perfectly stunning Tampa River Center wedding day we couldn’t have adored any more. It began with a ceremony on the lawn followed by an epic party of a reception with views of downtown Tampa. Morgan wore a perfectly fitted gown with timeless buttons down the back which she paired with a cathedral veil (you know we love a long veil!). She literally glowed as the warm light peaked through the trees of Plant Park, and watching Chris (who looked oh so dapper himself) get to see her for the first time that day was basically a full on heart explosion.

After their ceremony, guests headed to the balcony of the River Center. There they found apps + cocktails with a side of downtown views. When the reception began there were tear-filled speeches, lots of laughter, and even a surprise lift during the first dance.  Later there was a serenade for the bride by the groom and a bunch of his fraternity brothers. Then the evening concluded in a bubble send off out by the dock. For one final surprise of the night Chris had a tiki bar boat waiting, and we can basically think of no better way to sail away from your reception than with a tropical cocktail in in hand!

Chris and Morgan, from your greenery filled engagement session to your epic Tampa River Center wedding day, we’ve loved every bit of our time with you both and feel so lucky to have been by your sides. Thank you for the honor of saving these sweet memories, we hope you love them all every bit as much as we loved creating them.

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
