As the clock struck midnight, the confetti cannon erupted as the crow cheered “Happy New Years!” Ralph pulled Sarah in tight, champagne popping in hand, looked at his wife, and pulled her in for a kiss. Fireworks began to explode outside of the windows all around downtown Tampa, and just like that, it was 2020.
Just like that… it was a new year.
There is something so incredibly romantic about New Years Eve, but to be able to not only celebrate at midnight with the love on your life, but on the day you marry your best friend… now that is something incredible. To have the most epic beginning and ending to what will become two of the best years of your lives. And that? Well that is exactly how Sarah and Ralph celebrated their marriage, ended 2019 and began 2020 as husband and wife.
Sarah popped the last bottle of Moet & Chandon on the last day of 2019, and Ralph popped the first bottle on the first seconds of 2020. All with the love of their life and all of those who they love and hold most dear right by their sides.
A day filled with love and celebration.
And we would be lying if we said we weren’t looking forward to this day. From the moment we met Sarah and Ralph to their engagement session, we have just fallen in love with Sarah, Ralph, and their love story over and over again. Because the love that these two share?
It is truly something special.
Sarah and Ralph, it was truly so amazing to be able to celebrate with you two, your family, and your friends on your wedding day. We are so honored that you allowed us to be by your side and photograph these moments along the way. We had a great view all night watching the “fireworks” that you two share. Watching you two interact with your guests, with those smiles on your faces… it is an image that we will always cherish. The amount of personal connections you two have with the people that not only attended the wedding, but who worked your wedding was truly such a testament to you two and who you are! Because there truly isn’t anyone who could meet you two and not fall in love with the the type of social, happy, and amazing people that you two are. We love you two, your friendship, your marriage, and couldn’t be more proud to get to call you a Cooney Couple.
