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!!!
Lauren's engagement ring and wedding band have really pretty sapphires in them and Ric's gift to her was a sapphire bracelet. She had sapphire blue wedges for their beach ceremony and heels with sparkly bottoms for the reception. The lace detail on her wedding dress is actually part of her mother's wedding dress. Ric and the boys had a lot of fun getting ready, including photos with Ric's dog, and some photo bombing from their neighbors at PCI. He gave his groomsmen Oakleys for their gift which definitely came in handy for a sunny day at Pass a Grille. After a beautiful ceremony and sunset on the beach it was off to Nova 535 for the reception. Black linens with magenta orchids and uplighting decorated the room. Rick loves Dave Matthews Band, so they danced their first dance to You and Me. Lauren's dad gave the most amazing toast that had everyone in tears. One of the appetizers Puff N Stuff does are these "cuban cigars" that are served in a cigar box and to die for! Instead of a favor, they donated to the Malala Foundation which is such an awesome cause. A little bit of poker and a lot of dancing and amazing moments were had by all! Congrats Lauren and Ric!!! xoxoxo
