{Jessie and Todd @ Davis Island Garden Club}

This was an extra special one because we’ve known Jessie for a number of years now.  Not only does she work for Breezin and is a wedding friendor, but, she’s been a bridesmaid in quite of few of her friend’s weddings that we’ve photographed as well!  She’s even caught the bouquet at least once that we’ve seen:-)  Ashley and Candace were 2 of her bridesmaids, so it was so nice to see them again too!  I would say her wedding style was modern simplicity, with the colors being black and white with gold accents.  Jessie wore her grandmother’s engagement ring that has been passed down over the years.  In the box was a note that said who has also worn it and their wedding date, so they can add 11.21.15 to the post it.  They did a first look and bridal party photos beforehand so they could enjoy every minute of the party.  The most unique detail we loved was that they had an artist at the back of the ceremony, literally sketching it out on canvas as it unfolded!  They had the cutest flower girls and ring bears, the little ones rode down the aisle in style.  Jessie’s brother officiated, and they did a toast with the bridal party during the ceremony. Jessie and Todd met at a kickball game so they had a kickball there for all their guests to sign!  The reception was decorated with long family style tables with striped black and white runners, white lanterns, and gold chargers and sparkly table numbers.  The perfect finishing touch was the black and white checkered dance floor for everyone to dance on under the crystal chandeliers.  Lots and lots of dancing and fun moments for these 2! Congrats Jessie & Todd!!!  So happy for you and honored to be a party of! xoxox

{Ashley & David @ Renaissance Vinoy}

We started the day off early at The Renaissance Vinoy with the girls and guys.  It's always so much fun to feel the excitement and joy that is in the air.  David got some bonus points for his gift of Louis Vuitton:-)  Her gown was so beautiful, layers and layers of silk organza.  The girls were in black dresses with pink heels, gerbera daisies, and I LOVE Ashley's bouquet, white anemones.  Their ceremony was at Christ the King Catholic Church. Monsignor Higgins made a special trip to the church to perform the ceremony.  As we got back to the Vinoy, Charlie Crist randomly happened to be at the Vinoy and took a pic with the bridal party:-)  

The ballroom was STUNNINGLY beautiful. Tall black centerpieces with white and pink florals, crystals, and candles decorated the tables.  Monogrammed drink koozies and "kisses" from the bride and groom were the favors.  The Chihuly glass chandelier is one of the most unique pieces of decor.   

The toasts were possibly the best we've heard.  The maid of Honor, Allie, sang her speech to the tune of "That's what makes you beautiful"! She had everyone in tears from laughter.   She even had props...Gasparilla beads, to represent their times at the parade, a giant plastic lobster and giant engagement ring, to represent David's proposal (while on a boat lobstering in the Keys!)

 Ashley had a special mother/daughter dance planned for the reception.  Such a sweet surprise and special moments.  Jessie, one of the bridesmaids, who has been in several of the weddings we've photographed (because she knows everyone!:-), caught the bouquet AND her boyfriend caught the garter!  Hmmm, you know what that means! Phase 5 had the party rocking all night long.  We had a fantastic group of wedding professionals that made the day flawless for Ashley and David!  Congrats!!! xoxox
