Armature Works Wedding | Ashleigh and Alex | Tampa, Florida

It’s something you can see with the lights out; something you can hear in the silence; and something you can feel on the way home.

It’s true love.

And that’s exactly what Ashleigh and Alex have together.

You see, Ashleigh and Alex met at a college party and from the first time they talked that night, they were inseparable.

Whether he was the first to notice her or the other way around, there’s no denying that these two were meant to find each other that night.

And since that night? They graduated from college together, started their careers, and moved into their first apartment together. Having been through so many big life events with each other, it was only appropriate for their next big life event to be the proposal.

On Labor Day Weekend, Alex and Ashleigh spent the long weekend visiting his family – and when they went out to dinner, Alex insisted they go to the beach even though it was raining (hint hint 😉 ) And so when the rain finally settled down, they went to the beach and Alex proposed.

Their wedding day at Armature Works was perfect and beautiful – these two make brunch weddings look amazing and delicious! Benedict bar, stuffed french toast, and Bloody Mary’s? Yes, please!

But even more importantly, these two got to marry each other surrounded by friends and family who love and support them.

They have such a bright future ahead of them and we can’t wait to see where life takes them!

Ashleigh and Alex,

We had so much fun spending the day with you two and capturing all the moments of your wedding day! You have the sweetest friends and family who are so happy for you two. I don’t think you could have had a more beautiful wedding day and we know that your future will be just as beautiful together. We can’t wait for you to see the rest of your photos! Until then, we hope you enjoy these photos and have a blast on your honeymoon cruise!!
