I knew immediately at Ray and Nadiah’s engagement session that their wedding was going to be a blast to photograph. Let’s start with the obvious. These two are simply put…stunning. Their personalities are equally as beautiful. The day began (and finished) at the Westin Harbour Island Hotel in Tampa. (I have a definite fondness for this hotel as Pete and I got married there 8 years ago.)
Every detail was accounted for, starting with fab custom stationery from Tie That Binds. After Nadiah and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done by Maria Zepeda and Ramona Torres, we headed to St.John’s Episcopal Church in Hyde Park for their beautiful ceremony. After the ceremony, we headed back to the Westin where the party was amazing. Every guest was dressed to the nines and ready to celebrate Ray and Nadiah’s nuptials in style! Jonathan A Cortez provided the most amazing vocal performances. Jackie Ross of Table 6 Productions made sure every detail was in place while Melina Forla of the Westin Harbour Island made sure the night was perfect! (and it was!) Events in Bloom created beautiful decor with their flowers. Inspire Entertainment created a beautiful ambiance with fab lighting (I am such a fan of uplighting!) It is no secret that I am also a big fan of sweets. Ok- a HUGE fan. And I knew the sweets would be abundant at this wedding. You see, Ray works for Ghiraredlli, so the cake (by A Piece of Cake) and the chocolate fountain (by Lous Chocolate Fountains) had some extra yumminess!
I will wrap this up with my favorite image of the evening. I just love how Ray and Nadiah are looking at each other, and I especially love the delicious light! Ray and Nadiah, thank you for choosing Andi Diamond Photography to capture this amazing day in the start of your new lives together! I wish you so much happiness and joy! Have an amazing honeymoon. I can’t wait for you to see all of your wedding photographs! To all of Ray and Nadiah’s friends and family, please share your well wishes for the happy couple by clicking “Add a Comment”.
