Jennifer & Aaron live in Cambridge, MA and had an intimate wedding ceremony this past May in New Hampshire. They chose the Hilton Clearwater Beach to bring their family and friends together to celebrate with them. Aaron’s grandparents have been married 61 years and are just the cutest! We had a gorgeous sunset and the perfect evening for dancing on the sandpiper deck. These 2 are so sweet and we had an amazing time capturing their reception! xoxo
Lauren wore her mothers garter and her sisters veil. She wore beautiful bright blue Badgley Mischka heels. Her bridesmaids made her sign "soon to be Mrs. Briggs" and one of her friends gave her the prettiest jewelry stand! The girls all picked their style of soft gray gowns and Lauren looked absolutely stunning! One of my favorite moments is right after her dad saw her, it's the sweetest! They had a beautiful ceremony at Chapel by the Sea. Brett's nephew rand down the aisle to meet Uncle Brett! The Hyatt was decorated with gray textured linens, white and peach florals with lanterns. Since there cocktail hour was a little earlier, we took them out for sunset and it was the most gorgeous light you have ever seen! At the end of the night Brett, his dad, and his Fraternity brothers serenaded Lauren with a special song:-) So many amazing moments!! Congrats Lauren and Brett!!! xoxoxo

Robin and Frank are from New York, and had a beautiful destination wedding on Clearwater beach. Robin's 2 nephews were the ring bearers and they were the sweetest boys. They were waiting outside her door to say hello before we got the day started. Robin and Frank wanted to spend as much time with their guests as possible so we did a first look with them and all their bridal party photos before the ceremony. Aqua and coral were the accent colors for the florals and decor on the sandpiper deck. Everyone enjoyed the warm sunny florida weather, especially the spectacular sunset for the backdrop of their reception! Congrats Robin and Frank!!!! xoxox

Abbie and Chuck are from Michigan and even though the beach was literally flooded and their ceremony had to be inside, their wedding was beautiful and amazing! Abbie and her sisters made all of her details! They made the bouquets, boutineres, a card box, fans and the center pieces for the tables. Abbie and Chuck chose to get married at the Sheraton because that is the first place they went on vacation together! Chuck has two children and they did a sand ceremony to include them in their ceremony as well. The decor was aqua with some gray and burlap accents. Luckily the rain went away in time for some beautiful bridal party and sunset photos on the beach!
Nick and Kerri had the most perfect beach wedding! The ceremony was on the white sand beach at the Hilton Clearwater and they had an outdoor reception on the Sandpiper Deck. Nick and his guys got in "super wedding mode" by putting on their AWESOME super hero socks! Some had capes and some had wings! They not only had cool socks but gray 2 toned shoes as well. Kerri wore a gorgeous lace dress and the girls had short champagne colored lace dresses that matched perfectly. She even sported some Wonder Woman socks with the guys:-) Nick was brought to tears at the sight of his gorgeous bride during their first look. The ceremony was under an arch of gorgeous flowers. They had a really cool variation of a time capsule. There was a bottle of Silver Oak wine encased in a pretty white box. Both Nick and Kerri wrote letters to each other, sealed them, and stuck them in the box during the ceremony. It was said that if in the event they have an argument, go get the box, open the wine and take a minute to read the letters they wrote to each other on their wedding day. On their 10 year anniversary, if they have not opened the box, they are to do so and celebrate!! The reception decor was beautiful beach wood trees with flowers and starfish/sand dollar decorated place cards. Each place setting had a special treat. Inside was a message in a bottle thanking everyone for coming and a yummy cake pop! "Baba", Nick's grandma made the bread for the special Bulgarian Bread Dance that they did at the reception. Nick's brother gave a toast and said Kerri was a keeper because she could hold her own in the family board game night:-) It was Morgan (aka Boogin), one of Kerri's bridesmaids 30th birthday and they had really special Monopoly cake for her! The rest of the night was ridiculous amounts of dancing and fun had by all!! Congrats Kerri and Nick!!! xoxoxo

Bailey and Phil are from Chicago and since he proposed to her on the beach they decided to do a destination on the beach as well! One of their traditions is to collect sand from different places they've been so they'll have a special one from their wedding day on Clearwater beach. The girls wore flowy knee length turquoise dresses and the guys were in gray suits with matching ties. I LOVE Phil's cuff links, they were tiny hour glasses with turquoise sand. They wrote their own vows and Phil shared them on the beach with all their friends and family. It was such a beautiful day with not a cloud in the sky! Bailey's new last name is Gelato and she had sunglasses made with their new last name and she also had turquoise sunglasses for their guests during the ceremony. The reception decor was white hydrangea with colorful orchids and candle light. They had a custom wine bottle for everyone to sign. The interesting thing is that Phil had never actually had Gelato! Bailey surprised him during the reception with their very own Gelato bar! Congrats Bailey and Phil!!!! xoxoxox

Kathryn's "something old" was the broach that was on her bouquet from her grandmother. "Something borrowed" was her garter from a family member. She got her bridesmaids furry slipper/flip flops to wear during getting ready. Don had Marshall University cuff links and Kathryn surprised him with an entire Marshall cheesecake logo:-) The florals were different shades of lilac and eggplant along with the girls dresses and reception decor. Prettiness and fun all around!! Congrats Kathryn and Don!!! xoxoxo
