Christina and Gary were married at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in early April. It was a lovely Spring event, full of loving family, joyous friends and delicious food. I always enjoy shooting at the A La Carte, and it's like a new location ever since they started changing the decor a little bit.
Gary hangs out before the ceremony.
As usual, the girls were still getting ready and we were missing some groomsmen (traffic jam) so we weren't able to do lots of group stuff before the ceremony. Gary's best man and longtime friend was there so we brought him in for a few photos.
I love it. You'd think he was getting married today!
A quick prayer before walking down the aisle. This was off in a dark room with bad light, but sometimes the moment is more important than anything else.
The rings are presented along with an explanation of their significance.
The unity candle remains lit after the ceremony crowd clears out.
We did manage to steal a few minutes for some portraits of the newlyweds. I don't have to tell you, but it was obvious these two were in love (which always makes my job easier).
I couldn't decide which one to post, so you're getting both!
Christina and Gary share their first dance of many.
Congratulations Christina and Gary! Thanks for choosing Tampa Photo to be there for all of the special moments that make up your wedding day. Best of luck to you both!
