Love at the Aquarium
Cheyenne and Christian chose the Florida Aquarium as the venue for their wedding ceremony in late November. Their love for each other is vast like the sea, making this location perfect for them to say “I do.” The Florida Aquarium is located in the Channelside district of downtown Tampa, next to the new Sparkman Warf.
Established in 1995, the Florida Aquarium enables guests to get up close to 14,000 animals; many of Florida’s aquatic and terrestrial animals and ecosystems, as well as others from around the world. The experience is designed to take you on a journey, starting with a drop of water from one of Florida’s many freshwater springs, all the way out to the open waters of the Florida Keys. Sights include a large, simulated wetlands environment located under a tall glass atrium, shallow bays and beaches, and a coral reef ecosystem encompassed in half a million gallons of natural seawater. Brooke and Drew’s spectacular ceremony site was “under the sea” in front of the flagship exhibit – The Coral Reef – a half million gallon marine environment with more than 2,000 aquatic animals.
Cheyenne looked gorgeous in her wedding gown as she was escorted down the aisle by her father, to join Christian in front of the Coral Reef Tank. Their custom designed wedding ceremony included scripture reading from the book of Genesis and Ruth, The Lord’s Prayer and The Blessing of the Hands. Then, in front of their family and friends, the couple shared their own personal vows explaining to their guests their vast love for each other; exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies.
Venue and Event Coordination was provided by Kimberly and the rest of the staff at the Aquarium. Special thanks to Davis and Janice with Head Over Heels Photo for providing this beautiful picture of the happy couple after their ceremony.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Alba!
