{Christiana + Chad @Hilton Clearwater Beach}

When I first met Chad and Christiana for their engagement session, Chad was kind of quiet and didn't say much but OMG he is hilarious and so sweet:-)  The girls got ready downstairs in the Hilton and I love the little spot lights in the dark hallways they made for the perfect light for some amazing shots of Christiana.  She was very excited about her gift from Chad which was a fabulous Louis Vuitton handbag.  Chad apparently was happy about it as well!  Their ceremony musician was amazing, I can only think of one other time that it I've heard the sweetest ear candy you almost forget where you are. He was soooo good!  Christiana's uncle also wrote and sang them a really sweet song during the ceremony as well.  The flower girl and ring bearer went a little bit rogue, but made some fun sand angels.  Christiana had paint brushes for her guests to brush the sand off their feet and these really fun bobble heads at the end of the night for their them as well.  It was a beautiful evening with the pink and orange sky and the backdrop for the outdoor reception on the patio.  Ok, and this is what I was most excited about.  She didn't have an exit planned but wanted to do something.  So, I talked her into doing those awesome lanters that you can release into the sky, so cool but a little tricky.  Here's some of my favs!!!  Congrats to you two!!!! xoxoxoxo
