Rou and Chaz were married at The Birchwood in St. Petersburg, Florida this past Friday, and we couldn't be more excited to get to work on their edits! Their elegant Persian fusion ceremony was held in the hotel's event space, followed by cocktail hour on the venue's rooftop bar, The Canopy, overlooking Tampa Bay and downtown St. Pete. North Straub Park across the street provided a beautiful setting for wedding party and couples portraits before dinner was served and the party got started back inside the grand ballroom. Gold and small pops of pink were highlighted in the decor, creating a vibrant, fun, and elegant atmosphere!
Rou's bridesmaids were super excited to learn that they could choose their own dress! Each bridesmaid had the freedom to choose a dress of their choice, as long as it was pink (it didn't even need to be a specific shade of pink!). This unique element to their wedding allowed Rou's closest friends to express their individual personalities, as well as buy a dress they'd actually wear again! Brides, take note!
