Florida Aquarium Wedding in Tampa Florida
Carissa and Jesus were engaged last year, and decided to have their big wedding at The Florida Aquarium in Tampa Florida. I was very excited when they told me the location, because I have never photographed a Florida Aquarium Wedding before. It’s definitely the most unique venue I’ve been to for a wedding, and everyone that attended really enjoyed the aquatic scenery.
My husband and I were extra excited about photographing Jesus & Carissa’s wedding, because Jesus is actually a dear friend of ours. He even attended our very own wedding five years ago, so it was pretty awesome attending his.
Jesus & Carissa decided to have a first look before the actual ceremony. I was psyched about that because I love a good first look! We did the first look in this pretty cool section of the Aquarium called “The Wetlands”. It’s looks like a giant green house because the ceiling is glass, and you get a clear sight of the beautiful blue skies. As expected, the first look was emotional and heart warming. Jesus was bright eyed when he turned around to see his gorgeous bride to be!
After the first look, we got the whole bridal party together to do some fun bridal party portraits! Everyone was in great spirits and really excited for the day ahead! Paul and I then grabbed our car and stole the bride and groom for some intimate bridal portraits! I really love it when our couples trust us and just let us get creative. They were honestly down for anything!
It was finally time for the ceremony so we headed back to the Aquarium to get ready. Carissa beamed as she walked down the aisle! It was a beautiful ceremony, followed by a fun filled reception.
It was such a beautiful wedding, and we are so happy to have been apart of it. Congratulations to you both!
