this wedding was shot by Ashley
Ybor City Museum Garden Wedding
Kendal + Craig
How did you two meet/love story?
Kendal and I had been acquaintances since middle school but didn’t start connecting 1 on 1 until junior year of college and I quickly became smitten. I quickly let my guard down and felt so liberated and free of worry when she was around. She keeps me in a jovial state that I know can face any challenge and I think that’s a recipe for happy and healthy life together. (This is Craig’s version of our love story… so sweet!)
Why did you choose the venue you did?
We wanted something laid back and fun (outdoor garden venue in Ybor… best of both worlds)and we wanted our guests to see little bit of the city (so close to downtown and the Riverwalk), but also wanted to include a little nature (since Craig and I love being outdoors).
Your details? Why did you choose them, what was your thought process?
We wanted a simple, but romantic feel with a vintage/classic twist
Any advice for other couples getting married?!
Hire Ashley… AND, If you can, take your time with the planning process. We starting planning 6 months after we got engaged. We wanted to take sometime to just enjoy the engagement (it only happens once). The whole planning process is a whirlwind and it’s really easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of planning a wedding… make sure to remain patient with one another and keep a clear perspective on what the wedding day is all about
How has it been having me as your photographer?
You have been awesome! Not only are you incredibly talented, you truly care about your clients and do everything in your power to make sure you their needs are met… and then some. I haven’t meet/worked with another wedding vendor quite like you. Thank you!
