How do you up the ante at an absolutely beautiful wedding? You celebrate with family and friends from all over the world! I recently had the great privilege of photographing Arinze and Chioma’s gorgeous and elegant wedding celebration. Now I see A LOT of weddings, but the uniquely beautiful details made this wedding shine almost as brightly as the Chioma’s smile.

Faith itself can be so beautiful. Arinze and Chimoa were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony held at St Patrick Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida. Dedication, prayer, love, communion, and a shared purpose served to form both a strong bond, and a strong foundation for two people who are very much in love.

Bright colors and even brighter personalities served to spotlight the Bride and Groom at the reception, held at the Mainsail Conference Center. Every detail was filled with vibrancy, life, and celebration. Teal and pink filled the room; from the cake that was truly a work of art, to some of most beautifully dressed guests I have ever seen. Looking good didn’t stop anyone from having an awesome time though! This was a party, full of food, fun and lots of dancing. Romance also filled the air as Arinze held Chimoa, and the couple danced together as husband and wife for the very first time.

I was so blessed to be able to photograph the beautiful memories of this unforgettable day. Let us not forget to cherish the faith, fun and family that fill our life from day to day!
