I couldn’t be more thrilled to feature our last wedding of 2013 today! Madelin and Josue are one of the most timeless and elegant couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to document. You may recognize them from their romantic downtown Tampa engagement session we featured a while ago.

This sweet couple is just as beautiful on the inside and loved by all their friends and family. Madelin envisioned her wedding day filled with romance, dancing, and pearls- and what Madelin wanted, she certainly got! With a timeless gown similar to the one her mom got married in, including delicately laced long sleeves, stunning beading, and a string of beautiful pearls, Madelin looked radiant.

In Madelin’s own words, “To me the perfect wedding has a lot of candles (and in my case pearls, music and laughter). Marriage for me is a celebration of love.”

I couldn’t agree more.

I have to say, one of my favorite moments from their day was when Madelin and her dad surprised everyone and brought down the dance floor with “What Does the Fox Say?” Throughout the entire evening, it felt like I stepped into a choreographed performance- every guest seemed to have practiced for hours to produce such effortless smooth moves on the dance floor. To be honest, I felt like joining in!

Josue and Madelin’s day was absolutely perfect- and we’re thankful to have been a part of it. Enjoy some of our favorites from their wedding:
