Mother and son moments are always some of the sweetest to be able to capture on a wedding day. Looking at this picture you can see the love Michael has for his Mom, Dianne, and the tears she is holding in. Just before this picture was taken Dianne had given Michael a watch that belonged to his father who is no longer with us, these meaningful moments are what make weddings so special.
The Historical Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, is located in Safety Harbor Fl, which is just West of Tampa and North of St. Petersburg it is a beautiful venue for any type of wedding.
This particular wedding was held both outside and inside, with the ceremony being outside and the reception inside.
The ceremony took place in the Tranquility Garden at Safety Harbor Resort and Spa in the late afternoon. The Tranquility Garden boasts an elegant fountain which is filled with the healing waters from Florida's only natural mineral springs that bubble underneath the historic property.
After the ceremony, there was a small cocktail hour, in which time we took the couple around to different areas of the resort to capture the elegance of the property. I was able to add a modern flair to their portraits while still including the history of the resort.
