Tiffany Blue Embassy Suites Tampa Airport Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer
Sarah and Joseph’s Embassy Suites Tampa Airport/Westshore Tampa wedding was filled with positive energy, which made for a stress-free wedding day.
“Joseph and I both love to laugh. We are both very relaxed and laid back and that’s exactly what our wedding was. There was no bridezilla, no angry family members, no fighting of any kind,” the bride shared. “Everybody danced the night away, took a lot of pictures in our photobooth and just had an incredible time.”
While she didn’t have a particular theme, Sarah focused her Tampa wedding around the color tiffany blue.
“I incorporated other basic colors such as black, white and silver, but I primarily wanted tiffany blue to be the center color of the entire wedding, because that is my absolute favorite color, and I think it is a very soft, romantic color,” the bride explained.
As a Tampa wedding photographer, we know we’ll capture many enduring moments, but sometimes we don’t know just how cherished those photos will be.
“For me, my most memorable moment was the Father/Daughter Dance. Three weeks after our wedding, my dad was in the hospital, went into cardiac arrest, coded, and ended up passing away. So for me being able to remember how my dad and I just laughed the entire time during that dance and that we were able to spend those three incredible moments with just him and I is absolutely the most memorable moment of the wedding,” Sarah reminisced.
What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
We wanted somebody who made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. It’s an awkward situation to be in front of a camera and be the center of attention for an entire day and you really need to find somebody to trust and feel comfortable and laugh with throughout that situation to let yourself loosen up.
My sister and I met Marilyn and her husband Micah at a bridal show, and I just felt so comfortable talking to them right off the bat. The pictures they displayed were breathtaking, and their prices were incredible compared to some of the ridiculous ones that I have seen doing research.
We were at Disney watching the fireworks show and Joseph turned me around and got down on one knee. I was surprised and felt like the luckiest girl in the world. We have been together since I was 15-years-old.
What were the most memorable moments?
For Joe, the most memorable moment was our first dance, because with all of the chaos that is incorporated into a major event like a wedding was nowhere in sight during that dance. It was just him and I spinning around in circles laughing and enjoying that moment and that’s a beautiful thing.

What advice would you give to brides considering Castorina Photography?
Hire Castorina Photography right away before their date is unavailable because you don’t want to miss out working with them. They are an incredible company to work with and everything they do turns into magic. Their work with each other and their clients is incredible, but another amazing thing that I saw in them was how well they worked with my other vendors. Every single one of my vendors worked so well together and that made our wedding day run even smoother than I ever imagined it would.
