R & F Tampa, FL

I first met Rosaleen five months ago via a phone call from Kansas where she and her fiancee are attending school. She and Frank were planning a long distance wedding here in Tampa at the incredibly stately St. Paul Catholic Church followed by a red and gold holiday inspired reception at the gracious Spartan Manor in New Port Richey. 

Rosaleen and Frank met at the University of Kansas and knew within a short few months they belonged together. And so began the wedding planning in Tampa. They managed to juggle going to school and planning a flawless,family centered event full of laughter, good wishes, and killer dance moves. It was such a joy to be chosen to document the day!

St. Paul Catholic Church in Tampa. Simply stunning!

This image is one of my favorites that I've ever captured. Love that I caught them in a quiet moment waiting to sign their marriage certificate. You can see their friends and family in the reflection trying to figure out where they are.

Rosaleen built a window of an hour into the day's timeline for couple formal portraits at the University of Tampa. Such a great, great idea!

So very beautiful!

So much joy and happiness. Another one of my favorites!

The University of Tampa side of the Hillsborough River...gorgeous sunset colors!

Spartan Manor in New Port Richey was still adorned with twinkling lights and Christmas colors for the newlyweds reception.

Such a great looking group!

Haha...caught on camera!

The hats and props from the photo booth provided by Josh & Christy Brown of www.mlprodjs.com were a huge success!
