This picture was taken as the bride and groom, Stephanie and Michael, share their First Dance in the middle of the ballroom at the historical Safety Harbor Resort and Spa. This Ballroom features many beautiful decor details such as; the gorgeous chandeliers, the rich browns, golds and reds of the room, and the antique mirrors that artfully fill the entire room.
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. The Tranquility Garden boasts an elaborate fountain which is filled with the healing waters from Florida's only natural mineral springs that bubble underneath 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.
Then we headed into the building where we took a few more shots before the reception. The reception took place in the ballroom of the resort and was simply beautiful and breathtaking.
