I had the incredible privilege of photographing Nicole and Alexio’s wedding at the Tampa River Center. This lively celebration was filled with special moments. Their two dogs proudly serving as ring bearers, the inclusion of their adorable daughter, Ava and a hilarious beer boy. Every detail was carefully planned to perfection and fit their personalities to a tee. The evening culminated in a private last dance and ended with unforgettable photos taken in the rain, capturing the essence of their love story.
The Perfect Touches: Dogs, Bubbles, and Joy
Nicole and Alexio’s furry family members played a heartwarming role as ring bearers, adding an extra layer of charm to the ceremony. Their wagging tails and playful presence brought smiles to everyone’s faces. The couple also incorporated a delightful touch by having a bubble bunch and a beer boy, creating a whimsical and joyous atmosphere that resonated with their guests. The Tampa River Center never disappoints with stunning views and ample space for a wedding.
Nicole’s choice of a sleek and fitted dress with a beaded open back radiated elegance. As she walked down the aisle, she captivated everyone’s attention. The bridesmaids perfectly complemented the theme in their navy blue gowns, accentuated by silver sashes that added a touch of sophistication. The groomsmen’s light grey suits paired with navy ties completed the picture.
A Family United
Nicole and Alexio’s wedding not only celebrated their love as a couple but also marked a significant moment in their journey as parents. Their beautiful daughter, Ava, became an integral part of the day, symbolizing the love and joy that now encompassed their growing family. Their deep connection and devotion were evident in every captured moment, creating memories that would be cherished for years to come.
A Private Last Dance and Rainy Romance
As the night progressed, there were shots, and lots of dancing! Nicole and Alexio also shared a private last dance, which I highly recommend. The intimate moment allowed them to savor their big day. As the evening came to a close, the rain started to fall, offering an opportunity to capture unforgettable end-of-night photos. The raindrops added a touch of romance and spontaneity, resulting in breathtaking images.
As a photographer, I have the honor of capturing the heartfelt moments, genuine smiles, and overwhelming happiness. Nicole and Alexio’s wedding at the Tampa River Center was a true celebration of love, family, and cherished moments. From their dogs as ring bearers to the inclusion of their daughter Ava, every detail radiated joy and unity. The sleek elegance of Nicole’s dress, the coordinated attire of the bridal party, the private last dance, and the enchanting rain-soaked photos captured the essence of their beautiful love story.
