It was a beautiful sun kissed Florida day when Georgi and Mariana tied the knot in Clearwater Beach. The scent of saltwater mingled with fresh cut flowers in the fall breeze. Their families traveled from separate corners of the earth to watch them take their vows by the sea and pledge their love to one another. As Tampa wedding photographers, we get to experience such an amazing range of venues, and beach weddings like this one really showcase Florida at its best.
The groomsmen got ready at The Element with a stunning view of Downtown Tampa. They started off with a clean cut and shave a time honored Bulgarian tradition, then got suited up for the big day. The crew looked dashing as they headed to the beach to meet the ladies for the ceremony.
The ladies got ready upstairs at a private condo on Clearwater Beach overlooking the water. Stylish makeup and beachy waves highlighted the bride’s natural beauty and bubbly personality. Her elegant lace mermaid style wedding gown was accented with delicate sparkly straps.
You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day at the beach or a more beautiful couple. Georgi and Mariana brought together their love of family, culture, and started their own traditions. As they exchanged their vows, the sun shone down on them and smiled as the breeze played with the bride’s veil and tousled her curls.
We took their portraits on the beach, right at sunset. This is quite predictably our favorite time of day, fantastic light mixing with even better emotions in a cocktail that makes for incredible photos.
