From the Photographer

What an incredible celebration we had with Manni and Ruth! This two day event is definitely one to remember. Manni and Ruth met at a family gathering through their parents who go to the same church. Over time, they got closer and closer and began a journey together when Manni proposed Ruth during breakfast about 2 years after.


Their special day started on Saturday at Tampa Marriott Water Street and Westshore Grand in Tampa. Ruth wore a lace covered white bridal gown with just the right touch of sparkle for her ceremony dress while Manni stylishly wore an all white suit with red velvet detailing and shoes. Once ready, we made our way to Bayshore Baptist Church where the two said their I-Do’s and worshiped together with their new family. This couple was so happy to finally be Mr and Mrs and it was then time to celebrate! The Hilton Downtown hosted an elegant and elaborate wedding reception for this new couple. Gold centerpieces and rose gold detailing, white floral on every table and a gorgeous stage with white, ornate chairs and floral backdrop. It was PERFECT!


The Next day, the gathering was a celebration in their traditional and cultural attire. Manni and Ruth would be the King and Queen of this day and they sure dressed like royalty! The first look was especially sweet because Manni was flat-out amazed at his beautiful bride. At the GFWC Tampa Woman’s Club, family awaited their presence and grand entrance. They were singing and dancing throughout the whole evening once the couple arrived and the amount of joy in that room was something that we will always remember. It was more than spectacular and an honor to be part of Manni and Ruth’s wedding day. Congratulations!
