As she stepped out onto the balcony, sand crushed under her golden high heels. She looked at the view her as the wind swirled around them. Erich held Chelsea’s hand and lead her around the rooftop, carefully orchestrating his steps to make sure that Chelsea could walk safely. And under the Hotel Floridan sign, he pulled her in tightly, and kissed her.
Right in the sky of Downtown Tampa.
Emerald Green, grey, and hints of blush and gold adorned Chelsea and Erich’s wedding day, and y; all, it could not have been more beautiful. The way that the modern elements of gold terrariums contrasted in the classic and historic Floridan ballroom was excited to absolute perfection.
Kind of like the way that Chelsea and Erich love each other.
Erich is outgoing, and silly, and such a big personality. And though Chelsea is also a ball of fire, there is a side of Chelsea that is incredibly retrospective, calming, almost quiet, if you look for it. Together? Together they and their love is like their wedding decor at the Floridan. A hint of vintage and modern. Fun yet classy.
But mostly- timelessly beautiful.
Chelsea and Erich, the way that you two compliment each other (professionally and personally) has to be one of our favorite things about you two together. All day, as Chelsea anxiously waited to see Erich, she said something that we know so well. “I just can’t wait to see Erich. I’m so anxious to see him, yet he’s the only one who makes me not feel anxious.” And that is it. That right there. Because you two are each other’s person. The way that you fit together is like you were always designed and destined to be together, and we are so incredibly honored to have been able to photograph the day that you began your legacy of love together. We are thankful to call you a Cooney Couple. To call you two friends. Cheers to all the future holds for you two. (We just know it is going to be incredible).
Hugs and lots of love,
Shauna and Jordon
