In July Stefanie and Derek got married….in ITALY (insert jealousy HERE), in a small and intimate wedding ceremony. When they returned home to Tampa, they wanted to celebrate their marriage vows with their friends and family, so they had a wedding reception at the Phi Delta Kappa house in Odessa, Florida. Here are some of the wedding images we created on their special day:
Stef’s wedding dress:
Derek and Stefanie love to play pool, so it was a perfect place to photograph their wedding rings.
There were some beautiful portrait opportunities in Odessa for the bridal party (and despite the heat, the group was up for anything!) Stef looking so pretty in her wedding dress:
And Derek, the dapper looking groom! The groom and groomsmen: Stefanie and Derek sharing some love…. Work it out! Love how the couple strikes their pose!
The bride and groom stealing a little nuzzle… Some fun details of the yummy wedding cake, created by Let Them Eat Cake (Derek is a big fan of cars, hence the tire groom’s cake) and cupcakes by Cupcake Girl. Make sure to share your love and well wishes with the couple by leaving a comment below. I can’t wait for Stefanie and Derek’s Trash the Dress session (hint…there may be a car involved). Special thanks to the guys at Complete Music and Video for the evening’s great music and to Stephanie Smurr, Venue Manager from the Phi Delta Kappa Banquet Hall! I was so glad that Andi Diamond Photography could be a part of your day, Stef and Derek. Looking forward to our next portrait session.
