Vibrant Florida Aquarium Wedding | Tampa, Florida

Matt and Lisa are the kind of couple that you immediately feel connected to. They were fun, humorous and lively. Although this was technically a destination wedding for them (they live in Texas), they have tons of family in Florida. So I wasn’t the least bit surprised to hear they had chosen the Florida Aquarium for their venue. It’s a really unique space and seemed so fitting for their personalities!

Lisa’s timeless wedding gown was a breathtaking a-line silk gown that fit her like a dream! The rhinestone and satin silk belted sash showed off how itty bitty she is and her waist length veil flowed ever so gracefully in the wind during portraits.

The couple’s first look (which I highly recommend) was adorable. Lisa was bubbling with energy and Matt was so anxious. But they were lighthearted and excited, which made the moment really fun.

For the wedding festivities, they opted for a vibrant color theme that paired with the aquarium’s ocean blue backdrop beautifully! The creamy ivory, soft pink with a beautiful complimentary their bright coral. All of the elements together created a lively backdrop with plenty of contrast and variety. The ceremony florals were gorgeous! The pops of coral and lavender roses were so pretty with the fluffy hydrangea. And the tall crystal vases kept the focus on the flowers vs. the vessel (which is a big plus from a photography standpoint).  The centerpieces were simple and elegant, with just the right amount of soft color.

It was a joy to photograph these two and we wish all the best to the new Mr & Mrs. Boehm!
