A love that some people would call fate! Morgan and Bradley officially met while attending Florida State University. However, it was during their high school years that the seeds of their friendship were sown in a close encounter. Bradley, four years older than Morgan, grew up going to the same high school. Although, they lived in the same area at the same time their paths never crossed. When they finally met at FSU they bonded over their high school memories and goofy personalities. Here is a look inside their Tampa Yacht Club wedding!

Tampa Yacht Club Wedding

Morgan and Bradley’s serendipity fate leads them to a lifelong partner. They got engaged and wasted no time to start planning their dream wedding! Morgan reached out to us two weeks after he popped the question. If you thought that was quick, she was also planning their wedding for six months after she inquired. Although many brides would be beyond stressed to plan an entire wedding in a short amount of time, this was sentimental to her. Morgan has such a kind heart and seeing the love that ran within her family was super important to her.

Details

From start to finish, they meticulously chose details that represented them as a couple. Throughout the day, they sporadically placed oranges to incorporate their Florida roots. Their invitations were simple with the perfect about of spritz! Including oranges around the border of their engagement celebration invite, custom matches, and carefully chosen stamps for a seamless blend of their overall vision.

Bride and Groom

Morgan and Bradley’s day was bright and romantic with editorial elements. No detail was overlooked, as every single aspect held meaning. They thoughtfully considered each element, from custom champagne bottles adorned with personalized monograms to pillows featuring Morgan’s father’s name.

Love

A day filled with love and laughter, much like their engagement session. Bradley and Morgan’s connection reminds us why we love doing what we do. They were present in each moment and couldn’t keep their eyes off each other.

Morgan looked absolutely stunning in her Mantilla Veil. Originating from Spain, the mantilla veil is loved for its intricate lace-edged detailing. She wore a gorgeous lace overlay for a modest look during the ceremony. Once the party started Morgan removed the overlay for a more laidback feel. Don’t worry we didn’t forget about you, Brad, it’s just your wife looked drop-dead gorgeous! Brad, looking as dapper as ever wore a white tux jacket with black trousers lined on the side with a satin finish. His boutonniere infused more of that Florida orange vibe and he kept it classy with a black satin bowtie and black shirt studs. He also wore a custom cummerbund that has his initials on it.

Church

They chose Sacred Heart because five generations of her family have been married there. Three generations also had a Tampa Yacht Club wedding – so they knew they wanted those two locations for their special day. The church was stunning with beautiful architectural ceilings and patterned tiles lining the aisle. Those tiles were the very ones her grandparents walked on for their wedding. Although their ceremony was traditional, guests arrived in their formal attire at 7:30PM to watch as Bradley and Morgan tied the knot. This alteration transformed the entire atmosphere of the wedding, imbuing it with a greater sense of intimacy.

The Theme

The guests fully immersed themselves in the couple’s design. With a strong connection to these venues, Morgan and Bradley put a huge emphasis on their roots. Bringing in the Florida oranges, along with their signature cocktail, blood orange martini! They chose organic blooms for their florals, intertwining them with lush magnolia leaves. As photographers, we embrace unconventional choices, like shifting your ceremony to dusk instead of mid-day! This change was refreshing and kept us energized and engaged throughout the day. Bradley and Morgan, it was an absolute pleasure celebrating with you!
