Back in the early 2000s, my mom and Jordan’s mom worked together at the same Law Firm. I’d go into the office a lot as a kid and entertain myself while my mom worked. Monica, Jordan’s mom, always stood out to me with her vibrant smile and kind personality. Flash forward to 2022 and I’m shooting her son’s wedding at the beautiful Rusty Pelican restaurant! It was so sweet to hear Holly liked my photos the most while they were searching for a wedding photographer.
We haven’t had a perfect weather wedding day in months. But this Rusty Pelican Wedding Jordan and Holly had, it was a day with perfect weather and perfect lighting. We started the day in Holly’s freakin’ Penthouse room at the Grande Hyatt😍 Just about floor to ceiling windows, so spacious and so calm! Even Ryan said, “This is the most chill bridesmaids room I’ve ever experienced”. Holly’s mom and two sisters helped her get wedding-ready, then they headed to the venue in a limousine. The ceremony spot was simply gorgeous with a photographer’s dream lighting🥺
They danced the night away to the tunes provided by our personal favs, Anthony and Bryanna from Party Starters Tampa, some break dancing may have happened and we ate the best Rice Krispie Cake ever!! Let’s get into all of my favorite pictures throughout their wedding day before we go any further.
THANK YOU to all the amazing vendors who helped make this day happen
