{Rachael + Joseph @St. Pete Museum of Fine Art}

You could feel the excitement and joy that Rachael had as she was getting ready to see Joseph  (or Opie as everyone calls him:-) in the tea garden at the Vinoy.  I love seeing people so happy!  Rachael looked stunning in her beautiful gown and she had several very meaningful details planned.  She and her sister Rebecca, her maid of honor both wore silver bracelets that on the ends had their birthstone and their mom's birthstone as well.  Rachel's mom passed away earlier this year so it was a way to have her with them.  Rachael also had a picture of when she was a little girl and a picture of her mom attached to her boquet.  I'm sure she was looking down and so proud seeing such a beautiful celebration of her memory.  The decor was purples with just a hint of pinks.  I love how the reception was lit up with purple uplighting and also white gobo's all along the super high walls.  It was a crazy fun reception with lots of funny and sweet moments.  I especially love their first dance and Rachael dancing with her dad.  It was pretty toasty outside being June in Florida.  Opie and the guys were so much fun and so patient.  We had a blast and congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!  xoxoxoxo
