wedding guests at horse derby track in Tampa

Jennifer's wedding day style was perfect for her venue, with a stunning high scoop neck dress and strappy yellow heels. But most of all, we really enjoyed how this wedding proved that even though your event may not look "traditional," it can still value things like family and good friends.  Danny's son served as the attendant for both the bride and groom, and this kid is definitely going to be a beloved class clown in high school (full of good humor and hilarious facial expressions)!  Thank you to Rising Lotus Photography for sharing this charming wedding with us!
