{Lisa & Tushar @ The Renaissance Vinoy}

Here’s part 2 of Lisa and Tushar’s wedding day!  Yesterday I posted some sneaks of their beautiful Indian Wedding CeremonyAs soon as the first ceremony was over we did a few family photos and then it was time for a total dress, hair and makup change!  I LOVE Lisa’s gown, it was light blush with lace detail and cap sleeves and a layered tulle skirt.  Her bridesmaids and the Michele Renee team got her ready for the next ceremony!  Tushar changed into a black suit with a silver bowtie and he even had a diagram to fold his pocket square! We need a copy of thatJ The flower girls and ring bearers decided to take a lap around the fountain before actually making their way down the aisle it was so cute! Lisa’s room overlooked the tea garden and she gave us a key so we could get some gorgeous overhead views of both ceremonies.  They said the vows the wrote to each other and put a letter to each other in a wine box for their first anniversary.  Their ceremony was at sunset, and the twinkle lights in Straub park were waiting for us! The reception décor was simple and elegant with pink and blush sequined accents.  Their favor was a little elephant tea light which signifies good luck.  The reception started off in true Bollywood fashion followed by toasts, including a group toast from all of Tushar’s groomsmen. Later in the evening they had a tower of elephant shaped cake pops and donut hole station.  Lisa and Tushar, congratulations again we loved every minute!! xoxoxo

{Krista & Derek @ Vero Beach Hotel & Spa}

Krista and Derek are from Chicago, and chose the beautiful beach backdrop of the Vero Beach Hotel for their destination wedding. This is also the spot where Krista, her mom, and sisters do their annual girls weekend.  Krista's something old was her necklace that her mom had given to her on her birthday. It was made from her mother's original wedding bands.  Her bridesmaids were in short blush dresses that looked perfect with the guys navy blue suits and blush ties.  Krista looked so pretty in her layered gown that had a beaded belt and cute super cute heels!  We did Krista and Derek's first look in a secluded garden by the pool. It was so sweet to see Derek tear up when he turned and saw his beautiful bride!  The ceremony was on the terrace in front of the fountain, overlooking the crystal blue ocean. The rain even held off long enough just long enough for us to get the bridal party photos done.  It only began sprinkling halfway through the cocktail hour.  The reception was simple and elegant with white lanterns, candles, florals and navy linens. The toasts were sweet and you can see how much love each side of the family has for their new family member :)  We snuck out back at the end of the evening for some sparkler photos. It was the perfect destination wedding!  Congrats Krista & Derek!! xoxoxo

{Devon & Chad @Hilton Clearwater Beach}

Devon, Chad, and their family and friends traveled from all over Canada for their destination wedding.  It was just plain fun and laid back.  They wrote their own sweet vows to each other and for the unity ceremony put letters they had written to each other in a box of wine.  When life gets a little crazy, they can open the box read their letters and enjoy a glass of their favorite wine and remember how much they love each other:-)  We did a little bit of dodging the rain, but the sky turned dark blue with a pretty sunset for us.  Coral and green were the colors, and they had their guests sign a wooden surfboard.  Fun memories had by all!  Congrats Devon and Chad!!!!!

{Melody + Justin @Postcard Inn}

You can't help but smile seeing Melody and Justin's sweet and romantic wedding at the Postcard Inn.  She went for a vintage glam look and actually had her mother's dress re-designed so she could wear it.  Part of her decor was pictures of her parents and grandparent's weddings so you can actually see what her mom's original dress looked like:-)  They did the sand ceremony, but a really unique take on it I thought.  They poured the sand into a frame that had their picture in it, such a cool thing to keep and look back on.  Their reception was under the sky and lantern lit trees as it should be.  Congrats Melody and Justin!!!! xoxoxo
