{Ana & Jason Wedding @ Davis Island Garden Club}

What a beautiful day for Ana & Jason's wedding! The girls drank rose while helping Ana get in that gorgeous gown and red sparkly heels.  Their color palette was red, black, and white and everything down to their black diamond wedding bands and Ana's perfume coordinated.  Ana gave the girls fabulous black necklaces and earrings to match their gowns.  Jason and the boys were in black tuxes with red bow ties and converse.  His tuxedo socks were awesome!  Jason definitely shed a tear as Ana walked down the aisle to meet him.  They shared their super sweet vows on the waterfront at the Davis Island Garden Club and we had the prettiest light at dusk for photos of the 2 of them.  The reception was styled with damask linens and the same exact matching pattern on the cake.  Their guest sign in was a wood and glass frame with everyone signing little wooden hearts to but in it.  They enjoyed every second of the party and then we snuck the out for a few night photos in the gazebo.  Congratulations Ana & Jason you have such a beautiful and fun family and we so enjoyed being a part of it!!! xoxox

{Madison & Matthew @ The Tampa Club}

Madison is usually zipping around the Tampa Club making sure all the details of their couple's weddings are going smoothly, but this time it was her turn to be the bride!! It's always so special to photograph our friendors on their best day ever!!  Since these 2 bleed garnet and gold it was pretty fitting for their wintery Florida wedding details and those colors look especially amazing at the Tampa Club.  Madison looked gorgeous in that simple but so elegant gown. Her heels were encrusted with pearls and the guys had ties that coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaids garnet flowy dresses.  The Tampa Club was draped in white with mahogany chivaris and gold with pink and white florals.  That moment when Matt saw Madison walking towards her, uh still gets us every time.  Their wedding hashtag was #downstheaisle!!!!  I LOVE shooting on the grand staircase and the wine room.  The view of the sunset from the top of Tampa is pretty amazing as well. Everything in the reception was accented in gold and garnet with a little bit of sparkle and gold mercury glass.  Let me tell you, this group knows how to party, we had such an amazing time and could not be happier for the brand new Mr. & Mrs. Downs!!!! xoxoxox

{Melanie & Terrance @ T Pepin Hospitality Centre}

This juniper green with sangria and pink accents was perfect Melanie and Terrance's December wedding.  The flowers blooming at Pepin even matched!  I LOVE that juniper color on these ladies, it looks fabulous with the guys in black tuxes.  Terrance and the guys were ready in time for a game of pool and for him to write Melanie a super sweet card.  They got married in front of the fountains with the sunlight shining behind them at Pepin.  Everything was beyond happy to see them become Mr. & Mrs. Anderson!  I love the brick covered Ivy and those fountains!  We had a blast with this group, so pretty, and the guys, hilarious.  The reception had pink and white florals with holly berries and patterned linens.  The 4 tiered cake had gold crystal and a matching cake topper.  It's always so crazy even for us, how fast the reception just flies by.  We snuck them out for some night time photos by the fiery fountain.  Everyone left with a little love cookie favor right after their bubble exit!  Congrats Melanie & Terrance, what a perfect way to end our 2017 weddings!!! xoxoxo

{Kara & Brett @ The Marriott Waterside}

Kara and Brett got married on 11.11 at 11:00 am:-)  Their black and gold color palette with pink florals and so many pretty details was pure eye candy for us!  Kara's sparkly Kate Spade heels, matching wristlet, and pearls were the perfect accent to that gorgeous gown.  Kara is known to be the best gift giver, and she gave Brett a custom leather passport cover before the wedding and had an extra special surprise for him after.  Their little flower girl Rosie was so cute as she walked down the long aisle hand in hand with her parents. Their priest from Christ the King pronounced them the official Mr. & Mrs. Olgin at the beautiful Sacred Heart.  It was a gorgeous November day for photos around Tampa.  They had some planned in extra downtime before the cocktail hour and Kara changed into a super cute white sequined Hayley Paige dress.  I didn't even know you could do this, but for Brett's surprise gift, she had a paver on the riverwalk engraved with their names, date, and I Love You Like XO (which was also their first dance song:-).  We took them out to the riverwalk for "more photos" and the funniest part was Kara said something like, "these are some cool pavers" and Brett thought she was just making small talk for the photos so she had to point out theirs that was right at their feet.  The ladies from Event Sisters transformed the Il Terrazzo space into the gorgeous look and feel beginning from the first step into the cocktail hour through the gate topped with florals.  Chef Marie not only designed their cake but a fabulous sweets table.  I love the modern simplicity of it!  There were cake pops, key lime macaroons, cookies, and heart shaped brownies half dipped in chocolate.  Cafe Ala Carte had Espresso and even Pumpkin Spice Latte's (I know because I had one:-).  You know I love wedding hashtags, theirs was #brettgotkaradaway. I'm going to stop talking about it so you can see it for yourself.  Congrats Kara & Brett hope you had a fabulous honeymoon in Hawaii!!!

{Melissa & Mike @ The Hilton Clearwater Beach}

I learned that Mike is super crafty.  He actually hand crafted their ring box and all the girls foot jewelry for the beach! Melissa said he was bored during hurricane Irma.  They literally had the perfect weather for their wedding on the beach and Sandpiper deck at the Hilton Clearwater Beach.  Melissa's twin sister, Megan, (AKA fake Melissa:-) was her maid of honor and Mike's dad was his best man.  I love the custom wooden boxes that matched the guys sunglasses that Mike had gotten them as a gift.  In true beach style the girls were in teal dresses and the guys in tan shorts and Sperrys.  They all had so much fun getting ready, and that was just the beginning!  Before the ceremony we got Mike all set behind a sand dune ready to see his bride.  He had her do a little spin and then he did one too!  They had "shoe parking" for their guests so they could have their toes in the sand.  Teal and green florals with greenery behind decorated their arch.  I know sometimes people think if you do first look that it's not as meaningful a moment when the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, but Mike had one of the sweetest reactions when he saw Melissa walking toward him.  There were some surprise seagull guests that decided to join us for a few photos as well!  The overcast sky was awesome after the ceremony.  As we headed down the beach the paddle boards and canoes were all packed up but they happened to match their wedding colors perfectly, how awesome is that? The girls found a sand beach bunny that needed to be in a photo with their flowers.  Since it was cloudy we did sunset photos a little earlier so Melissa and Mike got to go to their cocktail hour and enjoy the food and the view.   Their colors looked fabulous on the deck and there were little wooden sea turtles on everything from the invitations, to the cake, and even the center pieces.  Their guests couldn't wait to get the party started, they opened the dance floor during cocktail hour.  The toasted, and ate, and danced, and smoked cigars (while watching the Yankees) with the view of the gulf in the background.  Congrats you guys it was amazing!!! xoxoxo

{Alyssa & Michael @ The Postcard Inn}

Alyssa's gown was a gorgeous moscato 2 piece gown (seriously so in love with it) accented with Kendra Scott jewelry and beige heels.  Alyssa and Michael are from Cincinnati, and choose Postcard Inn because they wanted a super fun and laid back location for all their favorite people to celebrate with them!  After we arrived at PCI with the girls, Alyssa read a card from Michael and it was one of our favorite moments, she said "he went all Nicholas Sparks on me" lol!!  Their friend Alex officiated their wedding and we had just enough time for the ceremony and some bridal party on the beach before it started raining.  The lobby of PCI is very cool and perfect even if it isn't raining!  Everything coordinated with the pink, moscato, gray, and gold color palette.  Alyssa loves pineapples so you'll see them in white and gold throughout the reception in the tiki hut.  Micheal's cousin was his best man, and said they had always been more like brothers.  He told a story from when they were 8 years old and Michael bribed him with McDonalds chicken nuggets so he would keep a secret from his mom.   When it came time for cake, Michael may have gotten a little smashed in his face, just a little:-) That flower girl she's got some dance moves!  Before we knew it, it was time for sparklers on the beach!  Congrats Alyssa and Michael!! xoxoxxo

{Stephen & Laura @ The Tampa Club}

I'm in love with the new trend of two piece gowns!  Laura had two different tops, one for the ceremony with lace that was ivory and one for photos at Tampa Club that was more champagne and a little sparkly.  Laura's BFF's Katie and Mark were here Maid of Honor and Man of Honor and literally made sure every detail was perfect the entire day.  Stephen's brother was his Best Man and his sister Lydia was his groomsmaid. We did a first look with Laura's side of the wedding party and their reaction was just priceless at how stunning she looked.  Father Zach at Sacred Heart married them in a gorgeous ceremony.  One of the things he said I thought was an awesome idea, was that on their anniversary they should re-read the readings that were read on this day and remember their wedding vows and how special this day was!  It was a perfectly cloudy day for lots of photos on the steps of the historic Le Meredien right next door.  There was even a little breeze (and help from Katie:-) to sweep up that chapel length veil.  I would call their wedding style "fancy and fun" with everyone in black with burgundy white and greenery in the flowers.  Add that the gold sparkly reception accents, wine cork place cards, and that cake and it's pretty fabulous!  Their wedding day was also one of the bridesmaid's daughter's birthdays so they did a little surprise cake for her. Laura's grandparents won the generation dance, having been married the longest, 60+ years.  When the DJ asked her grandma to share some marriage advice she said "say yes a lot"!!  They were literally the cutest couple ever!  Once the dance floor was open it was packed the entire time.  They had a few little surprises for their guests as well. Stephen loves popcorn so they had a late night snack and an entire spread of mini desserts.  As everyone was leaving there was a little coffee bean favor that said, "All you need is Love and Coffee"!  Laura and Stephen we could not be happier for you and that we got to be there for it all!!! xoxoxox

{Cassie & Scott @ The Palmetto Club}

"We got the bubbly" was the quote on the super cute tanks that all Cassie's bridesmaids were wearing.  Cassie's wedding style was old Hollywood glam, and that champagne lace gown was absolutely stunning.   Cassie did a first look with her dad and he gave her the biggest, sweetest hug.  She is his 3rd of 3 girls to walk down the aisle so I'm sure it was a little extra emotional for him.  The gray, with white and yellow accents was perfect for this elegant summer wedding in the garden.  The adorable little flower girls and ring bearers might have stolen the show as the walked down the aisle. But, that moment when Scott saw Cassie escorted by her dad to become his wife, there really just isn't any other moment like that!  The light in the garden at the Palmetto Club was perfect, streaming through the trees for the wedding party photos while the guests were enjoying cocktail hour.  The reception was decorated in geometric gold center pieces with candles and lots of succulents.  Instead of a cake, they had their favorite flavors of Sprinkles cupcakes with little bowties and diamond rings on them.  The entire bridal party made a fabulous entrance and after dances their maid of honor and best man toasted to how amazing they are as a couple.  This group definitely knows how to party, and while they were, we stole just Cassie and Scott away for just a few minutes by the fountain and twinkle lights in the trees.  Congrats you guys it was the perfect day!!! xoxoxo
