From the Bride… Kevin and I met when he moved from Arizona to Florida. I was working at a furniture store in Orlando, and he was a manufacturer’s rep who would come in the store once a month. We would always talk when he would come in, and one day, I asked him what he was going to get my for my birthday. His response was, “What, are we dating?” I don’t think either of us thought that day when he said those words, that two weeks later we in fact would be dating. Our first date was the weekend of the Florida/LSU game when I invited him to come from Tampa to Orlando to watch the game with me. Little did I know at the time, he was standing up his friends to drive an hour and a half away to watch this with me. Two years later, I had moved to Tampa to be with Kevin. Traveling to work between Orlando and the Bahamas, Kevin sneaked to Cincinnati, Ohio, to pick out an engagement ring. After a trip to Clearwater Beach and a sunset proposal, we went from, “What are we dating?” to “We are getting married!”
I had always envisioned our wedding being timeless, classic, and romantic. I wanted the color scheme to be soft and romantic, so we went with tones of ivory, champagne and soft pink. I was referred to Gina Leigh Photography from a college friend and immediately fell in love with her style. Gina shoots with film and is able to capture so much emotion, texture and feeling in every photograph. She also gave us guidance on what vendors would match our style. We could not have had such an amazing day with out all of our vendors.
