tampa yacht club wedding: mary beth + greg

Weddings

Apr 4, 2018

He stood in the middle of the hallway, waiting for her familiar voice to let him turn around. It was a moment that went by in an instant  yet felt frozen in time, and just as quickly as she had started walking towards him they were all of a sudden collapsed into each other’s arms. In a hug that seemed to keep the rest of the world out, they whispered words meant only for each other’s ears, and while you couldn’t hear the words spoken you knew they promised of forever . . . .

Mary Beth and Greg are married! The two of them said their vows in a customized ceremony at the Tampa Yacht Club, before an awesome party of a reception that started in the ballroom and quickly transitioned into a night of dancing beneath the stars. Mary Beth wore the most stunning Hayley Paige gown with these incredibly amazing sparkly straps, and Greg looked so handsome that even Ben was gushing about how dapper he looked! The two of them shared a sweet first look with each other, before sharing another one with their adorable pup Goose, in a moment that brought tears to both our fur-baby loving eyes! We adored how the Yacht Club not only complemented the color palette of the day, but also so perfectly complemented the two of them as a couple. Everything about these two is classic and timeless, and it was so fitting that they got married in a setting that exemplified that.

The bridal party was kept small, leaving spots only for siblings and close friends, and we loved that this allowed them to spend their morning of prep with their nearest and dearest. And speaking of their nearest and dearest, these two have SUCH an amazing group of family and friends, that traveled from near and far to celebrate them. As toasts were given that night we could totally feel how invested every person in the room was in the two them as a couple, and it was so very heart-filling.

Mary Ben and Greg, thank you so much for entrusting us with your best day ever! We hope you guys had as much fun as we did, and we can’t wait for all the new adventures coming your way!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
