LaMecha & Greg's Wedding at The Tampa Bay Firefighters Museum

The beauty of your wedding day is in the opportunity to make it YOURS.  And that’s exactly what Lamecha and Greg chose to do with their marriage celebration.  Hosting their wedding at the Fire Fighter’s Museum in Tampa, there was no more perfect venue to commemorate their shared passion for their career choice, which is one of the unique strengths of their bond.  Saying their vows surrounded by friends, family, and the historical artifacts of their craft added an element of personality that was distinctly theirs.  After the ceremony, the venue held infinite potential to incorporate so many interesting and appealing backdrops to their newly wed couple’s portraits.

One of the must-have images on our shot list was to snag an epic photo of Lamecha and Greg on a vintage fire truck.  Ongoing sprinkling rain kept us from going outdoors to execute the original plan.  But it didn’t stop the couple’s phenomenal coworkers from bringing the bright red beast indoors in order to make their dream portraits come true!  The challenge of utilizing the indoor ceremony space as the rainy day backup plan resulted in pushing our limits to land some truly one-of-a-kind portraits for this newly married couple.

The reception was held upstairs in a hall full of plenty of windows, rich wood floors, and lots of space for dancing and celebration.  Beautiful pink, navy and gold accents brought the space to life with classic pops of color and elegance.  When it came time for the traditional garter toss, Greg was not afraid to bring the heat during his extensive and highly entertaining dance to retrieve his bride’s garter.  The crowd attending this reception had no fear of the dance floor, so the party was lively from start to finish!

Lamecha and Greg’s wedding was a testimony to the importance of choosing a space that fits you and your partner.  With so many picturesque venues to choose from, it’s crucial to remember:  There is a difference between what is beautiful and what fits.  Stay true to the essence of your relationship, and your day will be full of wonderfully personal details!
