Photographing Alison and Bryan's big day was so much fun! Alyson and Bryan decided to have a non traditional wedding and when they told me about their plans I was more than excited since it's something we don't get to experience of photograph often! They held their wedding at Ulele, located in Downtown Tampa. It was the first time I photographed a wedding at Ulele, it's a great venue right by Tampa's Riverwalk that allowed me to bring the best of each moment.
I started the day photographing Alison at The Barrymore Hotel. I photographed her having her hair and makeup applied and getting the final stages of her preparation. It was so cool seeing all the details of this renaissance type of wedding with hand crafted medieval jewelry and dresses.
Once we got to Ulele, friends and family looked on as Alison and Bryan exchanged rings in a fantastic ceremony right on the riverfront while my wife played their favorite tunes on her harp!
Ulele was decorated beautifully based on Alison and Bryan's love for role playing games, cosplay, and medieval/renaissance. The guests were chatting happily, as they enjoyed drinks of their choice while I was still on the lookout to catch fantastic moments on camera.
Alison and Bryan created a fantastic day and it was a joy to share it with them.
This unique wedding was a success thanks to the amazing work of Rachel Dummeldinger with Ardour Complete Events! Take a peek at some of the images from the wedding below.
