Jamie & Ryan’s wedding | Mirror Lake Lyceum | St Pete wedding photographer
In some places, January 21st might be a very cold day, there might even be snow. But not in Florida! Jamie & Ryan’s wedding day was beautiful, beautiful skies, fluffy white clouds and even a little breeze…okay, maybe a lot of breeze! But that’s okay, because their wedding was inside of the gorgeous Mirror Lake Lyceum. Overlooking Mirror Lake, you can’t help but to be wow’d from the moment you enter the doors, and begin exploring this stunning building dating back to 1926. The Event Manager walked us through, showing us some of the most well known spots, and I was truly excited each time I began down another hallway, or up another staircase. Never knowing what I would find around the corner. I swear, if your a person who counts their steps and flights of stairs, this venue is totally for you! haha. Anyhow, the Mirror Lake Lyceum was the perfect compliment to Jamie & Ryan’s purple and gold wedding decor.
The bride and her bridesmaid’s arrived first, and immediately filled the halls with laughter and excitement. Photographing them was not only easy, it was so much fun. We laughed a lot, and immediately I realized how beautiful these friendships were, some going WAY back to the toddler days. They knew each other, supported each other, and they loved each other so much! It truly touched my heart to see this beautiful bride surrounded by women that really were there for all of the right reasons, they were there not just to support their best friend, and drink lots of yummy drinks (although that may or may not have happened too), but they were there to support the marriage and life that Jamie & Ryan would share together. And lets be honest, that made my job wayyyyy easier! Because all I had to do was capture them being them!
The rest of the night was filled with lots of hugs, stories, laughter, drinking and lots of dancing. Dj Todd Williams played all the right songs to keep the dance floor moving, and with the incredibly playful guests that graced the floor, there was no shortage of picture opportunities for me! In all honesty, I think I could talk about their perfect wedding day all day long, but if I’m being honest, we all know you’re not here to read my thoughts, you’re here because Jamie & Ryan are married, and you want to see it! So get to it! Enjoy!
