Elegant Downtown Tampa Sacred Heart Catholic Church Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer

Danielle and Billy focused on the two elements that make any great Tampa wedding: entertainment and cuisine.

“Our families are Spanish, Cuban and Italian, so we wanted to make sure we had plenty of good food from our heritage and good music,” the bride explained.

This combination resulted a memorable night for Danielle and her wedding guests.

“All around everyone said they had a great time and their feet hurt from dancing all night,” she reminisced.

The Tampa couple’s gold and white wedding featured specialty linens, chiavari chairs and tall centerpieces, creating an sophisticated atmosphere.

“I wanted something simple and elegant, so everything would look timeless,” Danielle said.

We had packed schedule for the Tampa wedding photography, so we pre-planned with the bride to ensure everything was captured perfectly.

“I wanted someone who got my personality, no frills, just important shots that I would treasure for years to come. Marilyn understood we wanted simple, yet classic photos and on a tight timeline,” Danielle shared. “I think it really helped that Marilyn and I walked around the church and downtown Tampa before the wedding day to map out areas we wanted to shoot in and work on timelines.”

What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
I wanted someone who got my personality, no frills, just important shots that I would treasure for years to come.

Marilyn understood we wanted simple, yet classic photos and on a tight timeline.

What advice would you give to brides consider Castorina Photography?
I think it really helped that Marilyn and I walked around the church and downtown Tampa before the wedding day to map out areas we wanted to shoot in and work on timelines.

The Proposal:
We were trying to figure out where to eat and couldn’t decide. Billy eventually pulled over on Bayshore saying we were going for a walk and proposed right there. I still can’t remember what we decided on for dinner that night!

How would you describe your theme?
I wanted something simple and elegant, so everything would look timeless.

What were your colors?
Flowers were white, table and decor were mostly gold and bridesmaids dresses were peacock. I wanted my bridesmaids to wear a jeweltone that flattered all skin tones.
