{Emily & Kalub @ The Sirata Beach Resort}

Emily & Kalub are from KY and moved to Tampa last summer which was perfect because Emily always wanted to have a beach wedding, and she did!  Their little 4 lb Yorkie, Sophie, (who Emily said runs the house:-) looked so adorable in a tiny little Yorkie wedding dress!  Emily gave her mom a bracelet with the word "Love" written in her grandmother's handwriting, literally one of the sweetest gift ever.  She gave her dad a handkerchief that said "Loved you yesterday loved you still. Always have, always will.  Today a bride, tomorrow a wife. You little girl for all of life." Her gown was the perfect flowy beach dress and so were her girls in blush and flower crowns.  Kalub and the guys were in tan linen suits, I love this look beach chic, and elegant but simple and so pretty!  Sophie walked down the aisle right before Emily was escorted by her dad so she and Kalub could become Mr. & Mrs. Wilkins.  Their reception was tropical themed with palm fronds, white florals, and cigars.  Such a fun group and so many beautiful moments! Congrats Emily & Kalub, hope you are enjoying St. Lucia!!! xoxo

{Ramsie & Chris @ The Sirata Beach Resort}

Ramsie & Chris had a gorgeous October evening and sunset for their beachfront wedding ceremony.  I LOVE the color palette Ramsie chose.  Mint, gold, and navy grey, white, and starfish accents.  While the girls were getting hair and makeup done they were joking about having a pillow fight while jumping on the bed so we had to do it:-)  Chris' two kids, Maya and Miles were the flower girl and ring bearer and they took their jobs very seriously and were so excited to be a part of everything.  The bridesmaids wore navy with mint and gold necklaces which coordinated perfectly with the groomsmen in grey suits and mint ties.  Their ceremony center piece was a bamboo arch with white draping and florals.  Their sand ceremony was as a family of 4 each pouring sand in an hourglass to keep in their home.  After Ramsie and Chris said their vows to each other, Ramsie also said vows to Maya and Miles.  Their guests enjoyed cocktails in the beachfront pavilion while we took advantage of the sunset.  The reception was decorated with gold sequined runners, placards tied with starfish, creative signs on mirrors and chalkboards with gold frames and koozies with their wedding hashtag #swinkorswim.  Ramsie even had a selfie station with fun props and selfing sticks for their guests to take a pic and add with their wedding hashtag.  Ramsie's dad gave the sweetest toast where he had a gold baton with Ramsie's name on it that he handed officially handed off to Chris.  Phase 5 made it an amazing party as always!  Congrats Ramsie & Chris!!
