Erin and Kris had a fantastic wedding recently. The wedding took place at The White Oak Cottage and at The Sparrow Barn in Lithia . I was excited to photograph another wedding at the The Sparrow Barn, when it comes to wedding ceremonies, they don't get much better than here. Being a wedding photographer in the Tampa Bay area is such an awesome job because I get to work with fantastic couples in amazing locations like this.
Erin and Kris both got ready at The White Oak Cottage, where the reception would be later on. It's such a cute venue that offers great flexibility for couples wanting to celebrate small and intimate weddings like this one. Once the bride and groom got ready, we had the first look - well...two first looks haha The couple played a joke on the best man - who wore a white dress thinking he was going to punk Kris, but Kris already knew and punked him back with a surprise of his own lol. Then Kris and Erin got the chance to do their first look in an emotional encounter!
We then went to The Sparrow Barn a few minutes away where we took more photos prior to the ceremony. Later, family and friends present just outside the barn witnessed Erin and Kris exchange vows in an emotional ceremony during the sunset.
Erin and Kris enjoyed spending quality time with their family and friends and loved every bit of their reception back at The White Oak Cottage. All the guests were cheerful and you could feel the joyful atmosphere at the reception. Chasing each special moment is my mission as a wedding photographer.
Weddings like Erin and Kris's make my job as a wedding photographer a pleasure and I hope they have a happy life together. Take a peek at the slideshow video above and some of their wedding photos below.
