USF students…did you know you could get married right on campus?   A beautiful wedding location is tucked away just off the new Marshall Center. Kelly O’Riley and Benjamin Hamilton were married on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at 5:00 PM.  Their ceremony was held outdoors in the sunken concert area on the campus of the University of South Florida.  Approximately 75 guests attended and were comfortably seated in white folding chairs facing the stage.  The wedding party entered from the back of the arena through the glass doors of the Marshall Center.  The alter/stage area  was covered by an arbor with hot pink bougainvillea.  The bride and groom exchanged vows  beneath a decorated wedding arch.  Reverend Daniel Lehman of Lealman United Methodist Church officiated the ceremony.  The bridal party attendants were Sarah Hamilton, Kathleen O’Riley, Logan Heddens, Wayne Stephen O’Riley, Hannah and Hailey Greer and Sylas Sullivan escorted by mother Amber Sullivan.  Bride Kelly was radiant and absolutely gorgeous.  Her groom, Benjamin was equally as handsome.  Their reception was also held on campus in the Marshall Center ball room on the upper level.  As a wedding photographer, we get to sample lots of wedding food.  However, I must say, the meal served at Kelly and Benjamin’s wedding was one of the best I’ve ever had!  Catering was provided by Affordable Catering, entertainment A Sunset Entertainment, wedding cake by Cakes Plus.  A grand time was had by all!  To all USF future brides and grooms….don’t overlook what’s in your back yard!  This wedding venue is gorgeous and the photo opportunities on campus, endless!
