Murphy & Carolyn wanted a intimate wedding. No wedding party, nothing too elaborate. Simply a day spent in celebration with their most cherished friends and family. A day filled with laughter, so much love, and all the bubbly to cheer on the newly wedded bride and groom. How the day unfolded was a perfect depiction of who they are—laid back, intimate, joyful.
Murphy & Carolyn—I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to capture your day. The way you love and care for one another, how you value your marriage over all the fleeting details of a wedding day, says a lot about you as a couple and the direction you’re heading in. It’s only the beginning and I’m looking forward to see what your future holds.

You know it's going to be a good day when Badgley Mischka, Jimmy Choo, and Dolce & Gabbana is involved.
I LOVE when a bride chooses to wear her grandmother's jewelry.
Sheer joy on his face when he saw his bride for the first time during their first look.
The first look gave us time to roam the Don Cesar a bit. Adore these two for enduring the sun and heat with me. They were troopers!
The ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Raphael's Catholic Church on Snell Isle.
Tampa Bay Watch rounded out their wedding day. It's a venue that overlooks the water, which was perfect for them and their nautical inspired reception.
Carolyn, you're stunning!
We slipped out onto the dock for some more portraits just as the sun started to sink closer to the horizon.
I’m going to end with this sweet photo. On the water at sunset, where they feel most at home.
