Spencer's Birthday

There are a lot of events piling up that I need to get to, but I thought I'd jump ahead to this past weekend since I have the slideshow created. Spencer celebrated his 5th birthday with lots of friends and family. It was a very "magical" day as you can see. Enjoy!

Meghan and George, A La Carte Event Pavilion Wedding

Meghan and George were married in a Greek Orthodox ceremony and had their reception at the A La Carte Event Pavilion. This was a real fun group as you'll see in a little bit.

Meghan and her girls hid in another building before the ceremony. The large windows provided some wonderful light for photos.

The girls proved to be just as goofy as the guys, but a lot better looking.

George poses outside the church before Meghan arrives.

I did convince them to pose for a few serious portraits, but why fight it? These ones show the real energy and feeling of the day.

The church was very beautiful and had this amazing dome. Laying on the floor allowed me to get most of it in while still keeping the couple in the shot.

We timed things perfectly with the sunset.

Meghan and George stroll under the trees outside the A La Carte.

As we headed inside, Meghan let me get a few more shots of her since the light just kept getting better.

After all the family shots, we played around inside the A La Carte getting some cool photos.

Meghan and George pause for a quiet moment before entering their reception.

These guys had an awesome first dance. It started out like any old slow dance, but then progressed through like ten songs, each with its own style and choreography. Well done you two.

How low can YOU go?

The cake is framed by the outside lights.

The reception was almost too dark for me to focus, and these guys were wearing sunglasses.

That was a Big Fun Greek Wedding! Congratulations Meghan and George! It was a pleasure to capture all the moments that made up your special day. Thanks for choosing Tampa Photo. I wish you all the best for years to come.

Super Build

Habitat for Humanity (Pinellas and Hillsborough) is planning some great events to coincide with Super Bowl week. A recent press conference highlighted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' support and participation in these events. Two homes will be built the week before the super bowl and one home will be built on the day of the Super Bowl. That's right, a house will be built in one day. That house will be shipped to a lucky recipient in the city of the team that wins the Super Bowl. You can see the St. Petersburg Times article here.

Warrick Dunn, Shelton Quarles, and Doug Williams were on hand to symbolically raise the first wall of the Super Build home.

Doug Williams responds to a few cracks about his age.

Doug and Warrick show it's all in good fun.

The players show their skills with a hammer. Warrick was careful not to hurt himself, as audience members reminded him he had a game coming up. The future homeowners watch as the process begins.

Enough watching...it's time for the future homeowners to pitch in and raise the wall.

Warrick fields questions from reporters. Wow, I guess you would get used to this after a while?

Shelton autographs some T-shirts.
The players pose with the future homeowners.

This really is a great event. Hopefully lots of press will pick up on it while they are in town for the big game. All of the Super Build t-shirts have the number "59" on the back. That represents the donation required to sponsor a squre foot of living space in the habitat home. Learn more at http://www.habitatsuperbuild.com/. Shelton Quarles is involved through his Impact Foundation. Visit http://www.sheltonquarles.org/ for more information.
