WOW guys!! Can I just first say how blessed I am to have such amazing couples come into my life? Kristen & Bear contacted me just a couple of months ago to be their wedding photographer, and I am so thankful they found me! These two traveled from Ocala, Fl for their gorgeous wedding. They had their ceremony at the beautiful Harborside Chapel in Safety Harbor, and then celebrated with their friends and family at Kapok Gardens, a venue incredibly unique to Tampa Bay! We had so much fun spending the day with them and capturing the day! 

Harborside Chapel is just such a breathtaking ceremony venue, I can't recommend it enough! Bear & Kristen's ceremony was full of so much love and excitement, everyone was smiling ear to ear. These are just a few of my personal favorites!

Last but not least, here are some of my favorite moments from the reception. Kapok Gardens is definitely one of the most unique venues I have seen in Tampa bay. It really is quite magical, and it was easy to see why they chose it for their reception! From Kristen's sibling dance to honor her father, to one of the funniest sparkler exits I have ever seen (you wouldve thought they were trying to light them on fire! LOL), these are just some* of my favorites! (can't wait to finish their entire gallery!) 

 Last but not least, thank you SO much Bear & Kristen for sharing this incredible day with us! I feel so honored you chose me to capture your day!!!
