{Kelly & Ryan @ The Postcard Inn}

I knew this was going to be a fun group when I first talked to Kelly and found out they are fellow Ohioans:-)  They wanted a fun, romantic, and whimsical wedding for their favorite people to enjoy with them.  Nailed it!  The girls aqua flowy dresses and the guys in khakis and white linen was perfect for the beach. Ryan wore a single starfish instead of a boutonniere.  I saw a little tear sneak down Ryan's cheek  as he saw Kelly being escorted down the aisle by her parents.  Their guests threw petals as the exited as Mr. & Mrs. Thomas.  Earlier in the day it was super super foggy, but that all cleared out and there was a beautiful sunset.  This bridal party was a blast, they turned up the music on an iPhone and sang so we would have party music down on the beach.  Postcard Inn has so many great spots for photos inside and outside and there's always something different and new.  Their reception was on the lawn, strung with lights, lanterns, and little tags with flip flops for the table numbers. Kelly and Ryan did their first dance under the canopy of trees and the party didn't stop!  We had just as much fun shooting it as everyone was having in the photos.  Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Thomas!!! xoxoxox

{Alyssa & Michael @ The Postcard Inn}

Alyssa's gown was a gorgeous moscato 2 piece gown (seriously so in love with it) accented with Kendra Scott jewelry and beige heels.  Alyssa and Michael are from Cincinnati, and choose Postcard Inn because they wanted a super fun and laid back location for all their favorite people to celebrate with them!  After we arrived at PCI with the girls, Alyssa read a card from Michael and it was one of our favorite moments, she said "he went all Nicholas Sparks on me" lol!!  Their friend Alex officiated their wedding and we had just enough time for the ceremony and some bridal party on the beach before it started raining.  The lobby of PCI is very cool and perfect even if it isn't raining!  Everything coordinated with the pink, moscato, gray, and gold color palette.  Alyssa loves pineapples so you'll see them in white and gold throughout the reception in the tiki hut.  Micheal's cousin was his best man, and said they had always been more like brothers.  He told a story from when they were 8 years old and Michael bribed him with McDonalds chicken nuggets so he would keep a secret from his mom.   When it came time for cake, Michael may have gotten a little smashed in his face, just a little:-) That flower girl she's got some dance moves!  Before we knew it, it was time for sparklers on the beach!  Congrats Alyssa and Michael!! xoxoxxo

{Tina & Jordan @Postcard Inn}

Tina looked gorgeous in her pink overlaid princess Vera Wang gown.  She actually made the hangers, sashes and flower girl dresses herself.  The bridesmaids dresses were also Vera and J Crew.  Jordan and the boys wore charcoal grey suits with vests and pink ties.  The rain cleared up just in time for their ceremony on the beach.  They had bubbles, flip flops, and beach balls for their guests.  The feel was romantic and formal but with lots of fun and personal aspects.  The color just looked amazing!  Her reception was filled with lots of love and laughter!  They fed each other gelato instead of cake:-)  Tina and Jordan met at Ohio State University and it was destination St. Pete beach for all their guests.  They ended the night with a Chinese lantern send off.  It was a little windy and I almost caught my hair on fire while I was shooting, but i survived:-)  The lanterns ended up being really beautiful and provided and awesome backdrop for their final photo of the night.   Congrats Tina and Jordan!!!
