Best of 2015: Getting Ready Wedding Photos

Best of Marry Me Tampa Bay 2015: Getting Ready

Over the next two weeks, we’ll be highlighting our the “Best of” Tampa Bay wedding photos of the year. With over 100 weddings under our belts this year, we love reminiscing on the stunning weddings we’ve had the pleasure of publishing.

We’re starting at the beginning of the day with our favorite getting ready photos showcasing the excitement of a bride and her bridesmaids, their reactions of seeing their best friend in her dress and experiencing the moment when a mother fastens the last button on her daughter’s dress.
