"Nothing beats the elegance of harp music. Combine that with superb photos and you have the MOST memorable event for yourselves and guests."
A few weeks ago we photographed the wedding of Mary and Bruce. The wedding took place at Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay in Tampa, Florida. Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay is an exciting place to photograph a wedding, I look forward to more wedding photography there. It is a delight to work as a wedding photographer in such fantastic venues with so many different options to photograph our couples, as you may have also seen from their engagement photo session there.
Mary and Bruce chose the Grand Hyatt to get ready on the morning of their wedding. Mary had her hair and makeup finished as I photographed the moments she had getting ready with her bridesmaids. Grand Hyatt was a perfect place for the Bruce to prepare for his big day. Kristen took the groom and groomsmen outside for their photos.
The ceremony took place at Wilson's Plower North on the 14th floor. Kristen welcomed the guests with the sounds of her harp as she played music for them. I could hear the guests talking about how soothing and beautiful it sounded, many have never seen a concert harp before! As the ceremony started taking place, both Mary and Bruce look STUNNING! The wedding officiant, Glen Hunter, amazed all of us as he sang Hallelujah midway through the ceremony. It was something so amazing that I've never experienced on our weddings!
The reception was held at Armani's, it was decorated beautifully and was the perfect spot for the newlyweds to welcome their guests. Everyone was in a celebratory mood and was having fun while enjoying the stunning views of Tampa Bay. I mingled around the wedding party photographing the guests candidly while they enjoyed their drinks.
Weddings like Mary and Bruce's make my job as a wedding photographer a pleasure and it was a joy to share it with them. Take a peek at the slideshow above and some additional photos below. Vendors involved for Mary & Bruce's wedding included:

Mary & Bruce will have their wedding at the stunning Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay later this year. When I asked them about their engagement photos, they wanted to also have them at the resort. With so many beautiful areas for pictures at the hotel, I said, why not! Let's go! With COVID-19 affecting some of the restaurants temporarily closing, Mary spoke with the team at the Grand Hyatt to see if we could go up and take some engagement photos from the amazing views of Armani's restaurant. Gladly they were able to do so for us! And let me tell you...WHAT. A. VIEW! Take a look at some of the photos we took for their engagement. With so many other location options that the hotel offers, I can't wait to photograph their wedding later this year!
