Our St Petersburg wedding highlights at Mirror Lake Lyceum

A throwback to the 1920’s era St Petersburg on this wedding at Mirror Lake Lyceum, shot St Petersburg Photographer Celebrations of Tampa Bay A beautiful fun loving bride and handsome groom, along with some antique scenery made for a great vintage video.

The Mirror Lake Lyceum provides a perfect atmosphere for some fun “roaring 20s style” vintage shots. We did most of these photos in the theatre seating in the balcony. During the 1920’s in Saint Petersburg, the Lyceum was the place to go to see Programs and artists series sponsored by the leading churches. Under the auspices of dynamic pastors, the churches were eager to attract the ever-increasing number of tourists visiting the city. Virtually, all of the nationally and internationally known citizens of the day visited Saint Petersburg. The Lyceum programs continued, but on a lesser scale during the Great Depression and eventually passed into history.

Today this historic building is popular for weddings and for good reason. The surroundings gives a artistic wedding photographer a lot to work with its historic d├ęcor. Chandeliers and original fixtures of plaster, crystal and alabaster ornament the Lyceum’s Grand Hall with it’s soaring 53′ domed ceiling. The wooden theatrical seating in the balcony is great for vintage shots which we used on this video. The stairs at the front entrance provide a great area for group shots as we can creatively stagger people for family portraits. In the basement is some nice colored walls which is where the thumbnail for this video was shot in.
On the outside is beautiful Lake Mirror with the downtown St Petersburg skyline in the background.
