These two wonderful people tied the knot this January and we are absolutely THRILLED to share more photographs from Chris and Haylee’s gorgeous wedding at @armatureworks_tampa!! We started the day shooting details at the Westshore Grand Hotel in Tampa. The weather was beautiful as they both got ready for their most anticipated day!
Haylee had a first look with her dad once she was all ready and it was absolutely precious, everyone was in tears! Both the guys and the girls traveled separately to Armature Works in a limo, where their ceremony and reception would be held. The ceremony took place in the Social Hall and their reception was in the Theater; Both were beautiful and unique spaces!
Something I loved about their ceremony was that Haylee’s dad got the privilege of walking her down the aisle to the man she will spend the rest of her life with, and then was able to do their marriage ceremony as well!! SO sweet. I know that will be something they treasure always. They read their hand written vows while promising forever then lit the unity candle to signify their becoming one. It was such a beautiful ceremony! They exited the building as husband and wife for the first time and you could just see the sheer joy shown across their faces! It’s one of my favorite parts of a wedding day!
We took some glowy portraits outside with their family and best friends, not to mention the photo we took of them with all their nieces and nephews! That’s one of my favorite photos from the day! 🙂 After portrait time, they walked all the way around the building together while people at Armature Works were shouting congratulations to them, it was a blast to watch!!
Once they entered into their reception as husband and wife, the party began!! Special dances, the sweetest toasts (even one from Chris!!) and a FRIED DONUT and icecream bar!! WHAT?! Seriously though…I sure wouldn’t mind that treat being at more weddings! Haylee and Chris knew how to throw an awesome celebration! The dancing lasted all night and we had a blast with them and their sweet family (who we love!!) We hope you guys had the BEST honeymoon in Jamaica!! 💕Here’s so many favorites from your wedding day!
I love that their cake topper reflects how they met, doing crossfit!!
Doesn’t that look heavenly?!
A special thank you to all the vendors we got the pleasure of working with for Chris and Haylee’s wedding!!
