Seth and Machi were originally supposed to get married in downtown St. Petersburg in front of ALL their family and friends. Unfortunately, Covid-19 disrupted that. With Machi working in healthcare and a cross-country move happening in the upcoming months, it just didn’t seem like a larger wedding was in the cards. So, they gathered their closest family members and had a small, private ceremony at their original venue, The Museum of Fine Arts, instead.
“It was amazing,” Machi told their photographer, Ashley Izquierdo. “Words can’t describe how grateful we are that you came to capture our day today. It was magical and I’m still on cloud nine. It wasn’t the wedding we planned but it was honestly everything I wanted and more!!
