{Bridget & Ricky @ The Hyatt Regency Sarasota}

One of my favorite things about weddings is all the people we get to work with from all different places.  Bridget and Ricky live in the Bronx, and choose destination Hyatt Sarasota.  They actually found it because they were attending another friend's wedding in Sarasota and Bridget works for the Hyatt so it was perfect.  Their wedding style was a little bit of pink with navy and nautical accents.  Bridget looked stunning in her Modern Trousseau gown, they event stitched a custom tag on the inside of it with her wedding date for her something blue.  While she was writing her vows I noticed her bridal phone case and I didn't know it but she got an awesome pic of me taking that pic on instagram:-)  She incorporated such thoughtful and personal details into everything including little thank yous and the perfect bracelets for her bridesmaids and flower girl.  She gave Ricky a custom engraved tie clip from Tiffanys!  Ricky and the guys were in navy suits with pink ties, Ricky's being white.  They were hilarious and so fun! They said their I do's in the garden officiated by their friend also named Bridget.  After they tied the knot (literally they did:-) the breeze and sunlight was perfect for photos after the ceremony.  The reception was set with gold chivaris, navy linens, and white and pink center florals.  They had a fabulously choreographed first dance and totally fun NYC style reception.  We even got to sneak them out for some night photos with on the dock.  Congrats Bridget and Ricky, thanks for having us!!! xoxoxo

{Adora & Josh @ Marina Jack's Sarasota}

Adora and Josh had the perfect Florida day for the wedding on Lido beach.  Josh's daughter Jayden got ready with Adora and the girls and was so excited to be a part of their special day.  Adora wore a gorgeous lace accented gown with sliver stilettos and a white rose and orchid bouquet.  Their dapple dachshund, Sunny, was their ring bearer and dressed to the nines in his little puppy sized tuxedo.  Jayden was a part of their unity sand ceremony, and was the keeper of the special box of butterflies that they released during the ceremony to honor Adora's mom who was there with them in spirit.  The sunset and white sand was just so pretty!  The reception was on the waterfront at Marina Jack's with white, orange and purple accents with market lights throughout the room.  The entered the room with purple light up glasses and it was literally a whirlwind of special moments and so much fun with their guests.  You can see some of our favorite moments below including the special dance Josh had for his daughter.  Congrats you guys it was amazing!!! xoxoxo

{Angie & Adam @ The Hyatt Sarasota}

Angie and Adam are from Ohio. Over the years they have vacationed in Sarasota many times so it was the perfect spot to bring their friends and family for their wedding!  Adam gave all the guys copper mugs and they all drank Moscow Mule's as the got ready.  Angie's lace overlay gown was so pretty and the perfect accent was her silver Prada sandals.  Their wedding style was a little bit causal and a little bit chic with the girls in flowy navy dresses and they guys in tan suits and Sperry's.  They said their I Do's on the lawn and then Angie changed into a fun party dress for the reception.  They surprised everyone with a Dirty Dancing inspired first dance and everyone had an amazing time! Congrats Angie & Adam!

Kristina & Clyde Featured on Belle the Magazine

Kristina & Clyde's gorgeous navy and gold wedding at the Ca d'zan on the Ringling Estate is on Belle the Magazine! I love how they described it:
"The bride's to-die-for glimmering Kate Spade shoes that were the talk of all women present, who can blame them... they're fabulous! Speaking of fabulous, the navy + gold color palette was exceptionally stunning on the guest tables as well as the four tiered gold overlay beauty."

Deirdre & Angelo

Angelo proposed to Deirdre in front of this pretty mermaid fountain!  The funny thing is, he said his plan was to propose while they were on a cruise on the bay front but Deirdre was late so they missed the boat:-)  The love their 2 fur babies, Ellie and Mio and we got a pretty good family pic of the 4 of them!  Ellie was much more into being photographed than Mio.  Here's some of their prettiness!

{Laura & Chris @Selby Gardens}

Laura wore super cute Betsy Johnson shoes and a beautiful flowy gown.  She pinned a heart to the inside of her dress with her grandmother's initials on it to remember her on this special day.  The girls wore coral dresses with white hydrangea.  The boys wore gray suites, without the jacket, which I think is a great idea and so much cooler for the guys since it's almost always warm in Florida:-)  They said their ideas by the water and we had beautiful colors in the sky and random, but huge fireflies in the sky as well.  There were Cigars with Laura and Chris’s names on them for the guys to smoke during the reception.  Cupcakes, dancing, and lots of fun memories!!  Congrats Laura and Chris!! xoxoxo

{Alex & Kyle @Powel Crosley Estate}

 Alex and Kyle are high school sweethearts:-)  Kyle proposed to Alex in the keys, and the ring was buried in a conch shell.  So, it was very fitting for their rings to also be carried down the aisle in one.  Alex wore her grandmothers ring, and blinged out Betsey Johnson heels with her gorgeous gown layered in silk organza.  One of our favorite rooms in the estate is the wooden, totally round ship room.  That's where Kyle saw his bride to be for the first time!  Alex walked down the winding staircase to meet her dad and walk down the aisle.  Cocktails were outside with lawn games for their guests including, cornhole, a giant Jenga set, and ladder ball (also known as hick golf:-).  The decor was all wine themed with wooden wine boxes, and wine bottles having the menus, and signs for everything.  Navy, tangerine, green, and a little bit of chevron looked amazing!  The reception was all outside on the lawn overlooking the water and strung with white lights. It was gorgeous!  Congrats Kyle and Alex!!!  xoxoxo
