Christa and Michael truly curated the most beautiful Florida Garden Wedding at Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg Florida. The wedding day was full of laughter, emotions an a extreme amount of classy dance moves. These two met the old fashion way, and truly the best way, through a friend of a friend. During the intro call before booking I asked Christa and Michael what are you looking most forward to on the wedding day? Their answer, being together from start to finish.
The Sunken Garden was a perfect venue for Christa and Michael. Due to the natural garden beauty of the venue and open concept Christa chose to ride with a true floral theme, the result was truly immaculate. Arms of Phosphene truly outdid themselves with the floral. As the wedding day progressed we found ourselves utilizing so many areas of the venue, from the courtyard to the main lawn, there were so many beautiful locations to adventure off and capture some amazing portraits. I want to highlight in this blog the importance of letting your emotions be present on the wedding day. Christa and Michael were truly a prime example of letting those emotions be free with each other, as a result these moments will be remembered forever. It is important to remember to take a moment to breathe, slow down if needed and be with each other.
Last I want to end from some beautiful words from Christa on how she described falling in love with Michael. “I Fell In Love With You Like Falling Asleep, Slowly Then All At Once”.
Thank you Christa and Michael for having me capture your story and wedding at Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg Florida.
