Last year, Kristin with Creative Loafing Tampa asked me to be a part of their annual auction for a full wedding package. I was incredibly honored to be included in this as all the funds went to The Children’s Home of Tampa! If you don’t know much about this organization, they are dedicated to improving the lives of children through their many programs and services including improving education and fostering families. At the auction last year, Amanda and Larry won this ultimate wedding package and in turn donated thousands to The Children’s Home!
It almost goes without saying that Amanda and Larry are the most amazing couple to be around. When the two of them were reliving their love story when I asked them during their romance session, they blushed. Together for 11 years and still blushing! They started by telling me they high school sweethearts. He was a Senior and she was a Junior. They shared mutual friends and eventually met at a party, and according to Amanda, they have been inseparable ever since.
Is anyone else’s heart getting gushy?
Their most anticipated moments for their day was being announce Mr. and Mrs. Chornoby, their first dance, and of course, the music and food.
My most anticipated moment? Photographing them on top of the garage in Ybor overlooking the Tampa skyline.
