He spun her around the dance floor, the words of the song they swayed to saying everything that needed to be heard. And that night they danced their first of so many more dances to come . . . .
This is the first dance
But it won’t be the last
Timeless moments like this
They won’t ever be a thing of the past
We’ll spark a candle tonight
An eternal flame of romance
When the honeymoon is over baby
I’ll still move you like the first dance . . . .

Michaela + Ryan are married! They had a lovely afternoon ceremony at the ever so grand Sacred Heart followed by an evening reception at The Vault. This was our very first time getting to shoot at the Vault, and can we just say a ginormous WOW?! Seriously. As if Michaela and Ryan’s big day wasn’t already gorgeous enough (because, have you SEEN the two of them?!) they held their reception at this place and it was just too much too handle! It was the absolute perfect canvas for the various shades of pinks and roses that made up the decor of the day. We loved so many moments from their wedding, their family had SO much love between them they were impossible not to adore. I absolutely loved watching the super sweet relationship Michaela had with her adorable Grandma, and the giant smile on Ryan’s mom’s face as they danced. It was obvious from start to finish that this day wasn’t just about Ryan and Michaela, but also about the people who meant the most to them. And that is just an absolutely beautiful thing to be around!
And speaking of beautiful, can we just talk about how ridiculously stunning Michaela looked?! I loved the simplicity of her dress (which by the way had POCKETS!) and how it allowed her personality to shine through. And Ryan didn’t look too shabby himself, and by not shabby I mean straight up GQ model. I mean REALLY. We had so much fun with the two of them hopping around downtown Tampa after their ceremony, and their super fun bridal party was up for just about anything! It was a perfect day for two people who truly deserved nothing less. Michaela and Ryan, we hope you guys are having the best honeymoon ever in Spain! We had such an awesome day with you both, and are so thankful to have been a part of it!
Love + Laughs,
