{Kate & Andrew @ Safety Harbor Resort & Spa}

When we arrived, Kate and her bridesmaids were just hanging out in their cute robes sipping champagne and having such a great time.  She wore these fabulous Vince Camuto heels with a little ivory and pearl clutch to accent that gorgeous lace gown.  The girls got ready while Kate's mom helped her get ready and then we did a first look with them, so happy for their beautiful friend!  Then Kate's dad came in and there were happy tears all around.  Andrew and the were in cobalt blue suits that were the perfect shade of blue with the girls mauve dresses.  The ceremony was on the patio behind Safety Harbor resort with florals and greenery installed in the fountain as well as on the edge of each aisle.  Their friends and family came from Montreal, London, Las Vegas, California, and Kate and Andrew actually live in Birmingham, AL so all dear friends and family traveled here to celebrate them becoming Mr. & Mrs. Mullings (#marryingmullings as their wedding hashtag said:-).  Everything about their weddings was elegant and sweet.  The Four Springs ballroom was decorated with greenery, candles, gold, ivory and a little bit of burgundy.  The bridal party made a fantastic entrance, we had to post a couple of the best one which was a pretty fabulous bouquet toss. From the minute they entered until the sparkler exit it was an amazing time had by all including us!  I'm going to stop talking so you can start looking.  Thank you Kate and Andrew for having us and congratulations!!!

{Rachel & Steve @ Carlouel Yacht Club}

Rachel wore this light and flowy lace gown with a floral crown that was just perfect for the beach!   Her garter was even made of lace that was so pretty and completed her look.  There's this little shaded garden right behind the yacht club where Rachel walked up to Steve and the happiness was just beyond words. You might remember Penguin (who is actually their cat:-) made an appearance in their engagement session and he of course had to included with his little bow tie!  Steve's 2 brothers where his groomsmen in gray suits and purple ties, and his sister was his "grooms woman".  I love her gray dress matched the guys suits and complimented the girls dresses.  During the ceremony they honored their moms by giving them each a rose and my favorite part was that they had Martin, Rachel's 92 year old grandpa come up to sign the marriage license and make it official!  It was a overcast sunset which gives you that light color and texture in the sky.  Rachel and Steve are both chemists, so the glass vase they poured the sand in for the sand ceremony was a beaker as well as their cake toppers were a bride and groom beaker and one for Penguin too!  Their wedding # was #beachchemists. The reception was decorated in white, candle light, and purple florals with little cookies in the shape of Florida for favors.  From the toasts, dances, to Hannah singing a special song for them it's pretty clear how much these 2 of are loved by all!  Congratulations Rachel & Steve!!!! xoxoxo

{Kourtney & Marcel @ Hilton Clearwater Beach}

Kourtney & Marcel live in Minnesota, and their friends and family joined them on Clearwater beach for their destination wedding.  Our brides always find the most beautiful gowns.  Kourtney’s was a simple ivory gown with a lace underlay completed by flowers in hair.  Simple but so pretty! Marcel and his groomsmen wore khaki shorts, flip-flops, and ivory linen shirts. Their handsome little ring bearers carried conch shells custom decorated with little starfish and ribbon inside. The ceremony was out on the beach under a trellis decorated with flowers.  The overcast sky gave us the prettiest light for photos and we had quite a fun time with the bridal party.  The cocktail hour and reception were out on the sandpiper deck decorated with ivory, pink, and purple florals. Their sign-in Jenga game had the perfect message “Marriage is a game of balance, help us build our future.  After the sunset, the backdrop for toasts and dinner was a pretty purple hued sky. There was some serious dancing, hanging by the fire pits and really just a fun time celebrating by all.  Congrats Kourtney & Marcel!! xoxox

{Lauren & Kyle @ Carlouel Yacht Club}

Lauren and Kyle’s wedding was casual and fun with lots of special custom details! Lauren’s light and flowy gown was custom order from Australia and the perfect dress for the beach.  Lauren’s mom made all the hangers for the dresses and the letter H with seashells from the beach Lauren grew up on. All the girls helped Lauren get into her dress and some of the sweetest moments were with her mom.  The girls wore navy, knee length dresses with pockets and the guys were in navy pants, white shirts, and coral belts with seashell boutonnieres.  Their beach ceremony was decorated with simple palm leaves, sunglasses for their guests and a place for everyone to leave their shoes.  A steel drummer played as everyone got seated for the ceremony.  Lauren looked so pretty and excited and she walked down the long wood path to meet Kyle at the end of the aisle.  Her brother in law officiated the ceremony and her aunt and cousin played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the ukulele.  It was a perfectly clear and white sandy beach day!  Their place cards were tied with little life preservers and they had a white monogram for everyone to sign.  Lauren and Kyle met in Chicago so their cake had a Chicago Bears symbol surrounded by mini key lime pies.  From the moment they entered the reception until it was over was just full of sweet moments, laughs, and even a few happy tears.  Congrats Lauren and Kyle!! xoxoxo

{Sarah & Shaun @ Kapok Special Events Center}

Sarah and Shaun really put so much thoughtfulness into their wedding details and special surprises for their family and friends.  Their Tiffany Blue, white and gray color palette matched the venue perfectly.  They sent each other sweet gifts while getting ready!  One of the groomsmen sent a video of Shaun opening his gift to Sarah so she could see his reaction while getting ready.  Her gown was a simple, but stunning with a jeweled waist and buttons down the sheer back.  Just before Sarah walked down the aisle, the curtains closed and she was in the spotlight as you could see her silhouette from behind the curtain.  Her brother walked her down the aisle and handed her off to Shaun.  Sarah's brother in law became an officiant just for their ceremony.  Instead of a unity candle they poured together different colors of glass pieces that is going to be turned into an art piece for their home.  The light in the garden by the fountains was so gorgeous for their photos after the ceremony.  Sarah's favorite flower is the orchid and she had just a touch of that in her bouquet.  The reception was decorated with tall branches and white roses and tulips.  They had a gourmet popcorn bar with little custom favor bags for their guests to take home with them.  During their first dance, Sarah and Shaun surprised both Shaun's parents and Sarah's sister and brother in law by having them join in.  Neither of them had a first dance for their weddings so it was such a special moment for them to all share together.  Sarah danced with her mom and had friends and family members each bring her a single rose while they were dancing, it was the sweetest!  During dinner, Sarah snuck away to change into a whole new look that made her look like a goddess!  Before we knew it, it was time for Rolls Royce exit.  Congrats Sarah and Shaun!! xoxoxo

{Kathryn & Don @Countryside Country Club}

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

{Rachael & Locke @Hilton Clearwater Beach}

Locke proposed to Rachael on their annual beach vacation in North Carolina so a Florida destination wedding on the beach was where they chose to have their family and friends come celebrate with them!  It was quite a chilly day for us Floridians, but to them, coming from Iowa it was paradise!  Rachel had custom cuff links made for locke with their monogram and date on them.  Locke also had a custom tie clip that read “ I do… Forever”!  Locke gave Rachael's mother a beautiful bracelet  that read “ I will always take care of her, I love you, Locke”  That is the most special thing I have ever seen a groom do! Just beautiful. Some other details included a custom purple hanger for rachels dress, A wooden cutout of Florida for their guests to sign and I love Rachael's pink diamond ring.  The glowing deep orange sky after sunset was their backdrop for the reception.  Congrats Rachael and Locke! xoxoxo

{Tennille & Matt @Clearwater Sailing Center}

Tennille wore the perfect flowy gown, and the girls in light pink bridesmaid dresses for their wedding on Sand Key Beach.  One of my favorite little details was the program, one side had all the names of the bridal party and how they were special to them.  Matt went to Ohio State and gave the guys OSU bags as their gifts and there was some O-H-I-O going on.  Their reception was on the open deck of the Clearwater Sailing Center.  Decorated with beige and white linens and white florals.  Their escort cards were little bags for the guests to fill with treats.  Tennille's sister, Lindsey, was her maid of honor and gave a pretty fabulous toast along with a special gift from her and Cory.  Apparently, Tennille always swerves when she sees a turtle on the road and Matt believed her when she told him it was a law!  They have an official sign, so now it's a law in their house:-) Tennille use to be our studio manager before she started Tumblebus Tampa, so we are SO happy to see and Matt so happy and starting off their journey of life together!!!  xoxoxo

{Alysa & Kyle @Hyatt Clearwater Beach}

Alysa and Kyle had the prettiest pink and black wedding on the 16th floor sky terrace!  Alysa's flowers had just a hint of very thin black feathers.  The boys wore pink argyle socks and were doing some arm wresting and having a pretty good time hanging out before the ceremony:-)  The girls were in black dresses and fun bright pink shoes.  The sky terrace is one of the prettiest locations to get married in Clearwater.  It's water view all around and you don't have to touch the sand!  One of the groomsmen decided to take a little siesta on the comfy lounge furniture while we were doing bridal party pics.  While the sun is setting, there is always such beautiful golden light and we had a gorgeous sunset.  The reception was draped in white with black linens and pink center floral center pieces.  A nice little touch was the draping and monogram right behind Alysa and Kyle.  The evening was full of joy and emotion!  We snuck out of the reception for a few night pics and they got lots of congratulations from everyone on the boardwalk.  When you're in a wedding dress it's basically celebrity status:-)  Congrats Alysa and Kyle!!! xoxoxo
