{Abby & Travis @ Lange Farm}

Talk about divine intervention…there was a 90% chance of rain at the time of Abby & Travis' outdoor ceremony at The Lange Farm!!  It rained 30 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start and them completely stopped. Everyone was looking at their phone radars and by "coincidence" the storms went everywhere around, but JUST missed the Lange Farm. They were able to have the ceremony they planned on the lawn under an AMAZING floral arch created by Events in Bloom. A crystal chandelier hung in the center of the arch. It was absolutely breathtaking!  Abby looked stunningly beautiful in her dress that was made of lace and tulle that flared out right above the knees. Travis and his groomsmen wore tan suits with pink ties to match the bridesmaids pink dresses.  The ring bearer carried a little bird cage to hold the rings and the flower girl's little escort held a heart shaped sign that said "here comes the bride" on the way in.  On the way out it said "and they lived happily ever after". The Garden House was dressed to perfection with gold chivari chairs, light pink linens, and beautiful florals.  They are enjoying their honeymoon in Europe as we speak:-)  Congrats Abby and Travis! xoxoxo

{Alena & Scott @The Lange Farm}

Burlap, lace & aqua were the accents for Alena and Scott's elegant, vintage Lange Farm Wedding.  The ceremony decor had wooden barrels and a chandelier decorated with florals, that is actually going in their home.  Not the florals, the chandelier:-)  Thankfully the rain held off so we could have their ceremony and pictures outside!  The reception decor was so pretty!  I love the table runners, they were made of burlap with a lace overlay.  Each table was decorated with a tall gold center piece, with white and blush florals, aqua linens, a vintage frame, and a little burlap favor.  Alena's new last name is Nicely, which is so fitting for these 2!  It was an amazing day and we loved capturing every minute!  Congrats Scott & Alena!! xoxox

{Megan & Joel @ The Lange Farm}

I honestly don't think there are nicer people, more deserving of a happy life together than Megan and Joel.  Megan is an ER nurse, and Joel is a fireman.  They met while Megan was on a ride along.  When I first met with them Megan, she told me how important their wedding photography was to them, and that she felt that prints and albums are a lost art that she absolutely wanted.  I need to do a video with them because that is exactly what I say!  She was a little worried about the getting ready pictures because they couldn't get ready at a beautiful, ornate hotel because she wanted to be close the the Lange Farm.  This year I've been playing a lot with off camera flash especially during getting ready time and I think it turned out pretty awesome!  The boys had WAY too much fun, finding frogs, goofing around, and there might have been an incident where someone fell off a swing although not totally confirmed:-)  I love the moment they saw each other before the ceremony, their joy was indescribable.  The girls deep blue dresses and blue roses looked amazing.  There was also a very friendly horse that was happy to be in some pictures.  I love what Pastor Gary said during the ceremony, he said, "in marriage, think we before I" and it is so true.  Megan surprised Joel with a fire helmet groom's cake, which didn't get cut so I hope they got to enjoy it!  Megan's cousin has cancer, and something I thought was really awesome is they did the dollar dance, but all of the dollars went to benefit him and help with medical bills.  Megan changed into a fun short dress and cowboy boots to party it down!  I am so blessed to be able to "work" with such amazing people and am so thankful.  Congrats you guys!!! xoxoxo

{Kerri + Franco @The Lange Farm}

Kerri and Franco got married under the big oak tree at the Lange Farm.  They wrote their own sweet and emotional vows they recited to each other.  Franco, his best man, and Kerri's brother are all Marines and wore their dress blues.  The Marine Flag was raised and flown high to honor them.  Franco's best man is a childhood friend who joined the marines with him.  His toast was amazing, he even wrote a poem for Franco and shared it during his speech.  Kerri's sister, also the maid of honor also toasted her sister and new brother in law.  It was elegant and classic with black linens with beautifiul red florals and lanterns.  Kerri's family is Irish and they got in a huge circle and sang a song of good cheer for the newlyweds!  Dancing, cake, photobooth, it was a blast!  Congrats Kerri and Franco!!

{Jeni + Bruce @The Lange Farm}

I love seeing people so happy and Jeni and Bruce were definitely full of joy and the entire day was all about friends and family.  Jeni wore a pretty lilac colored dress and all the details were very Martha Stewart in style with different milk glass vases with a variety of florals, super cute stationary, and I especially love their escort cards, tiny party hats:-)  Sweets table, Ahh-mazing!  Bruce's son Mark, who was also his best man, and his wife and grandsons had moved to Australia and this was the first time in a year he had gotten to see them.   In his toast, Mark joked about his Father's visit to Australia and trying to drive the car.  Bruce got in the drivers seat except the steering wheel is on the opposite side of the car....Bruce casually gets out, changes sides, an says "I got this!" Mark then says that applies to marriage, whatever may come he has no doubt his dad will "have this!":-)  Now that's a toast!  Congrats Jeni and Bruce you have an amazing family and cheers to your new life together!!  xoxoxo

{Nikki + Josh @The Lange Farm}

You might be able to see a tear under Josh's Ray Bans when he first saw Nikki coming down the aisle:-)  They are just the sweetest couple, both firefighters!  Nikki's colors were aqua with brown accents.  She even added a ribbon of aqua to her dress.  They had little chalboards for the table numbers and their chairs.  Those might look familiar from their engagement session as well:-)  At the very end of the ceremony they released butterflies, and as you will see we had a lot of fun with the bridal party.  There was some T-bowing and randomness going on, love it!  Congrats Nikki and Josh it was amazing to be a part of!! xoxoxo

{Amanda + Shreve @The Lange Farm}

Seriously, I have never seen a gown like this.  Amanda looked stunning in her ice pink gown with a flowing 3 tiered train.  You would never guess that she is a Navy helicopter pilot!  She and Shreve said their I Do's under the big oak tree at the Lange Farm.  Burgandy, silver, and pink accented the ceremony and reception.  Sylense and Linda captured their beautiful story and as I was going through the images I noticed one of our couples Bridgette and Tim, that are getting married in September this year!  Amanda and Shreve have a really amazing story, they met at Stumps Supper Club, which is were we did their engagement session and have overcome the miles apart they have had to be during their relationship, Tampa, Pensacola, Michigan, Las Vegas, Corpus Christie, San Diego and deployment for Amanda in December.  Their story was actually featured in the St. Pete Times on Sunday, you can read the full story here

{Tara + Warren}

The look on Warren's face as he saw Tara escorted down the aisle by her dad really said it all.  Tara and warren got married in a beautiful little chapel in Dade City, the light streaming through the stained glass windown was amazing!  I would call the feel of their wedding "Winter Romance", I just thought of that:-)  Tara had a special locket on her bouquet and a beautiful ivory bolero that was perfect for the crisp evening air.  Their favors said "Our day is happier because you are here....Thank you!" So simple but sweet and so fitting.  Ivory & gold with eggplant accents decorated the Lange Farm.  Cake, not just one but I think their were 7 in all of their favorite flavors.  I love how they had candles and mason jars with flowers entering and exiting the reception.  It was a beautiful day and I'm so glad we had the privilege of capturing it.  Cheers to Tara and Warren!

{Jennifer + Jared}

Jared was in dress blues.  Jennifer in a beautiful white gown.  Gold, Champagne, and Ivory accents decorated the ceremony and reception.  It was a day full of joy and fun moments.  One of my favorite things was the "memory walk".  They had a collection on pictures lining the walkway to the cocktail hour.  To end the evening Jennifer and Jared exited with all their guests waving ribbons and it was the perfect ending to their celebration!
