Hannah and Elijah | Summer Wedding in Tampa | Wedding Photographer
Hannah and Elijah are such a beautiful couple. We loved everything about these two, from their sweet personalities to all the cute stories they shared! Some people don’t believe in true love, but if anything is real it is the unconditional love these two share. We had a wonderful day documenting Mr. and Mrs. Goncalves’ wedding, and are so happy to be sharing it with you all.
Hannah and Elijah's Sweet Start
These two have a love story that is truly led by God. They met at church, and after many prayers, they knew that they wanted to be together. One of the funniest and sweetest things about their relationship is how they got engaged. Elijah proposed to Hannah on Black Friday with a Harry Potter box that played the theme song. It totally took Hannah by surprise, and she couldn’t have been happier to accept the proposal.
On their wedding day, there were so many emotions swirling the air - mostly excitement and anticipation. Hannah’s dress was custom made. She loved the top of a dress she tried on, and the designer was able to swap out the skirt for a different one. We loved how she was able to make changes to her dress and make it totally hers! She looked gorgeous in it, and it definitely made a lot of happy tears fall to the floor when she put it on. Her and Elijah did a first look, which is one of our favorite new wedding traditions. Although we think they were a little bit nervous, they seemed thrilled to see each other. It was so sweet seeing the love they share!
The ceremony was stunning, and we loved the arch that they said their vows under. It was truly a beautiful wedding. They ended their night with a reception. Hannah and Elijah commented on how fun it was to see everyone boogie on the dance floor. It was a great night that had the couple and their guests smiling and laughing all night. Congratulations to these two on such a big milestone!
