This aquarium wedding was perfect for a mermaid-haired bride named after a mermaid

My mother named me Madison after the mermaid in the movie Splash, so it only seemed fitting that the wedding take place in an aquarium. We took our first look photos in the "wetlands" area of the Florida Aquarium, and the ceremony was in front of the Coral Reef Gallery.

My favorite part of the venue were the sharks that appeared in our photos. The soft blue lighting throughout the aquarium was beautiful, and the venue was really fun.
