Every once in awhile we won’t have the chance to meet up with our bride and groom before the actual wedding day, and this was one of those rare exceptions because Brigitte and Anthony live out of town and her mother was taking care of nearly all of the arrangements. This can potentially be a bit of a hurdle as wedding days are go-go-go and you’re then also faced with getting to know the client a bit on the actual wedding day; but it was a NON-issue with Brigitte and Tony as they were SOOO easy to shoot and get along with, we simply hit it off. 🙂
This Sunday wedding took place in Early November and all parts of the day took place at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, a BEAUTIFUL venue with TONS of shot opportunities. Brigitte and Tony aced every part of the day as you can see below. Plus we were so fortunate that they hired My Event Design to coordinate the ins and outs of their special day–hats off to you gals, especially Jennifer Grumpert who took the reigns on this one, it all came off perfectly!
Simply love all of the straight lines, the metropolitan feel that this hotel has while still keeping a class and a variety of shot locations. Beautiful space.
Brigitte’s Jimmy Choos were perfect.
Their beautiful florals were designed in-house as well by the amazing My Event Design team.
And a gorgeous Vera Wang wedding band. Wow.
The girls looked fantastic in their pink bridesmaid dresses.
And what a BEAUTIFUL gown, Brigitte!
Guys doin’ guy stuff…
The ceremony was on the rooftop of the hotel, outside of Armani’s restaurant, where the cocktails and reception were held. The time of day was perfect and there was perfect lighting for both the ceremony and also the post-ceremony wedding party photos.
Brigitte’s father was hilarious–her blusher was already back when they arrived at the alter, so he just faked it…LOL. I actually laughed out loud (fortunately so did everyone else). 🙂
Jason snapped this beautiful image through the restaurant window inside.
LOVE these shots and how they accent the architecture at the Grand Hyatt!
These trees are amazing and the light was coming from behind which created a very warm and majestic feel in the images. Plus the wedding party pretty much rocked it. 😉
The very happy couple.
Their simple decor tied together her Asian roots and still kept with the modern feel of the restaurant, making use of elegant whites and simple, straight lines.
And a streamer exit to round out the evening. Loved it!
