{Krista & Derek @ Vero Beach Hotel & Spa}

Krista and Derek are from Chicago, and chose the beautiful beach backdrop of the Vero Beach Hotel for their destination wedding. This is also the spot where Krista, her mom, and sisters do their annual girls weekend.  Krista's something old was her necklace that her mom had given to her on her birthday. It was made from her mother's original wedding bands.  Her bridesmaids were in short blush dresses that looked perfect with the guys navy blue suits and blush ties.  Krista looked so pretty in her layered gown that had a beaded belt and cute super cute heels!  We did Krista and Derek's first look in a secluded garden by the pool. It was so sweet to see Derek tear up when he turned and saw his beautiful bride!  The ceremony was on the terrace in front of the fountain, overlooking the crystal blue ocean. The rain even held off long enough just long enough for us to get the bridal party photos done.  It only began sprinkling halfway through the cocktail hour.  The reception was simple and elegant with white lanterns, candles, florals and navy linens. The toasts were sweet and you can see how much love each side of the family has for their new family member :)  We snuck out back at the end of the evening for some sparkler photos. It was the perfect destination wedding!  Congrats Krista & Derek!! xoxoxo

{Heather & Randy @ The Hyatt Clearwater}

Heather and Randy traveled all the way from Los Angeles California to have their wedding at the beautiful Hyatt Clearwater. Heather and Randy are a very fun and lively couple and have been together for fifteen years.  Since it was destination, instead of an engagement session we did a portrait session with them and their family on the beach the day before the wedding.  I'm so glad we did because on their wedding day, it rained the entire day!  Heather wore a gorgeous, lace, Jim Hjelm Couture gown and she looked positively breathtaking. Her flowers were  blush, pink, and white roses with subtle touches of green. Everyone enjoyed a night filled with good times and lots of dancing! Congrats Heather and Randy! xoxoxo
