We first had the opportunity to photograph Thomas and Tiffany’s beautiful Sarasota wedding in 2012. Two years later, we had the pleasure of capturing them again for this opulent Haute and Hitched post-wedding session at Le Meridien Hotel. Le Meridien is Tampa’s newest, most modern, and luxurious hotel in downtown. What used to be the old courthouse, is now a sleek and contemporary guest retreat that is right in the heart of the city. The theme of this Tampa wedding shoot revolved around romanticism and stylishly bold hues. The jeweled tones of the crimson and plum florals and decor that La Vie en Rose designed created a great visual juxtaposition with Le Meridien’s neutral atmosphere. The amorous details of deep red cherries, candlelight, and iconic ghost-chairs produced the unique and authentic characteristics for the reception ballroom.We loved the simplistic beauty of Tiffany’s wedding gown from Lulu’s Bridal and Fashionique. The delicate lace added the perfect amount of elegance, and her flawless hair and make-up by Michele Renee the Studio finalized the ensemble. Special thanks to Jackie Ross at Table 6 Productions for being a fantastic wedding coordinator and helping bring this vision to life! Also, Lydia Lopez at Le Meridien for being so gracious and inviting us to participate in this wedding session.

The exterior architecture of Le Meridien was the perfect backdrop for our couple.
The reception was held in the grand ballroom, which offered great natural light and stunning views of downtown.
We loved the 3D floral pattern on the sweetheart tables’ linens.
