{Cortney & Kyle @Ritz Carlton Orlando}

This day was all about the importance of celebrating with friends and family, and celebrate they did! Cortney's 2 nieces Addison and Caydence had monogrammed bloomers and some bling, even on their pacifiers.  One of my favorite moments is when Cortney's dad walked in the room and saw his youngest daughter as a bride for the first time.  The ceremony had a beautiful romantic setting.  Kyle's nephew Cruz adores his uncle Kyle, and ran down the aisle to meet him!  With the lights dimmed, Courtney and Kyle said their vows in front of a candlelit fireplace adorned with photos of loved ones.

The reception was breathtaking when you walked in. The cake sat on a pedestal under a curtain of white draping and had a crystal chandelier hanging above it. The tables had alternating tall and short floral centerpieces and custom chalkboards with the names of each table. They named the tables cute random facts about the bride and groom. One was "cornhole" and said Kyle will win any game he is challenged to. One was "Two" the number if times Courtney's car had been stolen! They even had a cutout photo of a cousin that was unable to make the wedding.  The sign on the escort table said "You can find your seat here, but your place is on the dance floor".  The Zangari's and Conards definitely know how to throw a party!

At the end of the evening, they had cigar rollers outside and a sweets table set up in the foyer with milk and all kinda if yummy assorted cookies, and adorable chevron bags and straws to go with them!

{Samantha & Brad @Bohemian Hotel Celebration}

The Bohemian Hotel in Celebration was the perfect location for Samantha and Brad's garden wedding and Alice in Wonderland inspired reception.  Brad's sister, Melissa, worked with Sam, and invited her to a graduation party where she and Brad first met:-)  It's extra special because we get to work with Melissa in the wedding industry, and are so honored to get to know, and photograph her brother and new sister in law's wedding!

Sam's gown was stunning! Organza with just 2 small butterfly accents and sparkly Chanels.  The girls had knee length flowy grey dresses with yellow heels.  I absolutely loved that Brad and his mom had a special moment before ceremony.   The patio had bright red chandeliers and a arch that matched it perfectly.  The reception decor had lounge furniture, chess tables, and green and gold accents.  Sam had swag bags for their guests with some of their favorite things.  She changed it to a short lace dress to dance the night away and they exited with sparklers.  I don't think it could have been any more perfect!  Congrats Sam and Brad!!  xoxoxo

{Melissa & Stephen @ Westin Tampa Bay}

Yellow and gray, paper pinwheels everywhere, hints of succulents, milk glass, mercury glass, chevron.  Melissa and Stephen's wedding was completely gorgeous and amazing!!  Melissa's gown was beautiful layered organza with a gray sash and jewels. When her dad saw her all he could say is WOW:-)  The girls had giant paper flowers instead of bouquets, which is what was the finishing touch for the head table.  They got married as the sun was setting on the 7th floor sky terrace and then headed to the top floor for a cocktails, dinner, and dancing.  It was the most perfect evening, especially for their guests to be on the outdoor deck overlooking the lights on the bay.  We are so happy we got to be a part of Melissa and Stephen's special day!  Congrats you guys!!! xoxox

{Gail + Justin @ Ritz Carlton Beach Club}

Gail and Justin met at University of Tampa.  I love their engagement story, he totally surprised her and proposed as they went on a helicopter ride in Montreal!  They said their vows on a chillier than normal day on the beach here in Florida but so gorgeous!  Gail looked beautiful in her custom designed gown and Jimmy Choo's.  Justin and the boys had matching shoes and random fun socks.  Justin and his best man have known each other since 6th grade, they grew up outside of Philly together.  The colors were navy with lime green accents and actual limes!  They had a custom step and repeat monogram for their guests to have fun being photographed with as well.  Now, Gail happens to be very good friends with two of our other brides, Lauren in fact was one of the bridesmaids so she and Chris might look familiar:-)  So we knew it was going to be a fun party and it was as you can see starting with the bridal party entrance.  There was a hilarious picture in the bathroom from Gail's bachelorette party.  They went on a cruise and on formal night Gail wore a $10 thrift store dress and the girls wore some pretty fantastic bridesmaid dresses as well.  Phase 5 rocked the party and everyone danced the night away.  Congrats you two it was amazing to be a part of! xoxox

{Danielle + Michael}

There were so many sweet moments at Danielle and Michael's wedding! One of my favorites, I don't know if it was Danielle's, but, right after her dad saw her in her wedding gown for the first time, he had a a picture with him from the day she was born:-)  It was non-stop awesomeness the entire day from getting ready, to the moment they saw each other, to all the funny things going on in the photobooth during the reception.  The style was old Hollywood vintage glam, I LOVE all the details you will see:-)  All her bridesmaids live in different places and their dresses were all totally different, but randomly all of the shoulder!  Michael is in the band Miggs, and he surprised Danielle by writing and recording a song to her for their first dance.  She told me he sings backup so she hasn't really heard him sing lead before and OMG it was gorgeous!  Everything was outdoors except for dinner underneath a tent with vintage candleabras, mercury glass, old books, and a really cool gold chair at their sweetheart table.  The ceremony was over the covered pool with a shabby chic fireplace and lots of framed family pictures.  The photobooth, Michael built that!  Danielle's grandparents were so cute and so excited to see her as a bride, we even got grandpa to dance with her:-)  You could feel the love and friendship that they shared with everyone there and I hope this helps you to feel what we say and a little taste of the beauty of the day.  Congrats Michael and Danielle you were a joy to work with!!! xoxoxox
