This sweet couple just happened to be sent my way by Laura, my great friend and go-to photographer! We started talking about the possibility of me shooting their July wedding in March. I finally got to meet them over coffee in early April.
As Josh, Kat and myself started getting to know each other while going over their wedding details, I just knew we were a great fit and that their wedding would be absolutely stunning! The entire time we were talking, both of their faces were lit up with joy. Their love for each other was very apparent and I was so honored to be apart of their special day.
The venue that both the ceremony and reception were held at was called, the Tampa Bay A La Carte Event Pavilion. I had never shot there before but quickly found out that it had dozens of beautiful areas to shoot. Back drops with trees, a dock over looking the water, a white building with large pillars, and gorgeous ceremony room inside!
The details were blush tone pink and gold, the ceremony was genuine and perfectly unique, their families and bridal party were extremely lively, the food was delicious, the DJ was fantastic and had people on the dance floor the entire night [including a few people in the air!], and the sparkler exit was a great way to end the evening. I’m so glad I was able to capture your special day Kat and Josh!! I wish you two a lifetime of happiness and love! 🙂 Enjoy these photos from their wedding!
I love that the bride wanted to help everyone else get ready!! So sweet 🙂
Got pretty emotional while all the sweet women in her life [including the hair/makeup artists] prayed over her.
Someone thought THIS was Kat’s veil!!
Reading sweet notes they wrote to each other and praying together before they become husband and wife!
It’s official!! The new Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Gassaway!!!
The lighting was GORGEOUS for all of their bridal shots!
Nice look for ya Josh!
These last few pictures, the song “All of Me” by John Legend was playing..and everyone was singing it to their dance partners! 🙂
