Tampa Garden Club | Tampa Wedding Photographer | Jody + Thomas Wedding

Everything about this wedding just screams CELEBRATION!! From the minute we stepped foot into Jody’s prep room, we knew this was going to be a fun day with lots of laughter and joy. And it definitely was!! Our cheeks and stomach abs definitely got a good workout from all the laughter that day.:)

Before we dive into all of the wedding images, we want to give a HUGE shout out to Jessica Meiczinger of Simply Divine Events for her incredible professionalism in putting this wedding together so successfully. We love working with you and your team!:)

The fun began at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Tampa, where Jody and Thomas got dressed and ready for the ceremony. And right off the bat, the colors of the bouquet told us this was going to be a bubbly day!:)

Once everyone was ready to go, we made our way over to Saint John Greek Orthodox Church. Because it was important to Jody to capture the feel and scenery of Tampa that day, we decided to place the bridal party into the middle of the road in downtown Tampa for some photos.

The couple decided not to have a First Look and preferred to wait until the ceremony to see each other. So we snuck out the guys for some photos once the girls were all tucked away.

The warm and vibrant atmosphere of the church was just perfect for Jody and Thomas’ full service ceremony.

Right after the ceremony, we headed over to the Tampa Garden Club on Bayshore where the cocktail hour and reception were held. And as you can see the fun continued while we were taking some more bridal party photos.;)

And yes, this ACTUALLY happened!;)

We absolutely LOVE when clients get silly while taking the bride and groom portraits and their personalities really shine through. It makes the images so much more real.:)

The vibrant colors of the cocktail hour and reception decor matched exactly what Jody and Thomas had in mind when they said they want their wedding day to just be a big celebration.

To say that everyone had an absolute blast is probably an understatement. All of the guest were laughing and dancing the night away and having the time of their lives.:)

A BIG congratulations again to Jody and Thomas!! We love you and we hope you keep celebrating your marriage just like you did on your wedding day!;)
