Chelsea and Ryan were married in a beautiful ceremony and reception at the amazing Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL!  The couple attended an event there and just fell in love with the unique space and knew it would be the perfect place for their modern and formal wedding!  The newlyweds said their vows on the landing of the beautiful spiral staircase that leads to the gallery entrances.  It was a very special set up for the ceremony as the guests watched the event from the balcony above to look down on where the bride and groom were sharing their vows.  After the couple said “I Do!” I was so happy to be able to photograph portraits with them in the garden on a great bench featuring the clocks from “Persistence of Memory” and in the gallery in front of their favorite larger than life Dali paintings.  Chelsea’s favorite, “Hallucinogenic Torreador” and Ryan’s favorite, “The Ecumenical Council” made the most beautiful backdrops for their pictures together!  The new Mr. and Mrs. celebrated with their closest friends and family on the outdoor terrace with a beautiful view of the ornate glass façade and the very well-known wishing tree!  The couple’s head table was even perfectly placed in the center of the infamous mustache sculpture!  I am thrilled that I was able to end our night with a few sweet and dramatic shots with the happily married couple on the amazing spiral staircase before they whisked away on their way to continue the celebration!   It was a pleasure to capture this beautiful wedding day!  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Blust!
