Submit a Wedding


To submit a wedding to Marry Me Tampa Bay, please make sure it has the following criteria:

  1. The venue must be in the Tampa Bay/Lakeland/Sarasota areas. (We are not accepting Orlando weddings at this time).
  2. The wedding must be exceptional; which means lots of inspirational details and decor and, of course, professional photography.
  3. We do accept a very limited number of engagements and styled shoots.
  4. We prefer weddings that have taken place in the last 6-9 months, though holiday-related weddings within 12-16 months are also considered.
  5. Please include up to 150 photos of the entire day including: getting ready, first look ceremony, portraits, reception and lots of detailed shots of the decor. (Photos should be 2000 in width, non-watermarked). Our main focus is the details and decor, so includes LOTS of those shots! Please do NOT include individual portraits of the groomsmen with the groom/bridesmaids with the bride (though we do want group photos) or guests dancing at the reception.
  6. Review our Submissions Terms and Conditions as it pertains to vendor credit and layout.

Do NOT email your submission. If you are a couple looking to submit your wedding, please go through your wedding photographer or planner. We no longer accept submissions via Two Bright Lights.

We do interview the couple, so they must ben open to speaking with us. Before you submit, please double-check with the couple that they want their wedding shared (not all couples do).

While we are non-exclusive, we do take into consideration as to how many times a wedding has been published prior to being featured on Marry Me Tampa Bay.

Currently, our response time is 4-6 weeks and our publishing schedule is 3-4 months out. If you would like to check on the status of your submission, please contact us at features{at}
