Your Tampa wedding should reflect you and your hubby-to-be. While the colors, flowers and decor elements can set the mood for your big day, nothing tells your guests more about you as a couple than the personal details. Emily and Cory emphasized the important parts of their lives by incorporating personalized handkerchiefs, a vintage wedding dress, family jewelry in the bride’s brooch bouquet and a custom wedding cake topper of their pet Boston Terrier Beans.
The Tampa couple’s March wedding was held at Christ the King Chapel, where they had 120 of their closest friends and family watch them tie the knot. They even had virtual guests attend via Skype, set up by the bride’s father, so that Emily’s grandparents could watch her walk down the aisle.
“Most of the day was covered in a ‘contemporary’ wedding photography style, which emphasizes the story and atmosphere of the day,” said Omeltchenko. “With this style the viewer has an appreciation of what the wedding was like, rather than a series of pre-determined poses.”
As I was preparing my camera and lights, Emily put her head on Cory’s shoulder while he started whispering something to her. They looked completely relaxed holding each other, enjoying a quiet moment, and catching a split second break from the crazy fast-paced day it had been so far. It’s the moments like that we, wedding photographers, live for. – Vadim Photo

The idea for Marry Me Tampa Bay began when I was planning my own Tampa Bay wedding, but had to scour the internet for hours finding and researching vendors. While I did discover amazing pictures on some of the national blogs, the vendors were usually out of state. I created Marry Me Tampa Bay because nothing like it existed and I had 15 months of planning and research under my belt. I didn’t want all my knowledge to go to waste! So my gift to you Tampa Bay Brides, a one-stop-bridal shop with amazing pictures, local events, and great vendors.
