We had such a fun time with Caroline and Greg strolling around downtown Dunedin for their engagement session:-) It was a beautiful evening with lots of laughs and even a little stop for ice cream!!
Elegant, equestrian was the style for Maureen & Ralph's wedding. It was the perfect theme since Maureen's favorite sport is horseback riding. The girls each wore a unique hues of mint green dress and the florals were accented with orange and dusty rose. Maureen's mom hand made her dress and put a little custom tag on the inside. Each of the girls' bouquet had a different leather buckle on them, and Maureen's gift to them was silver and gold bracelets also with a little buckle. The horse jumps in the arena had just been painted bright white and we were able to do some photos of the girls and guys (who actually were jumping over them:-) before first look. Just before the ceremony, they did a Ketubah signing with their families which is actually what makes the marriage official. Maureen's mom and dad waited at the end of the aisle to walk her down together and those were some of the sweetest moments. They stood under the huppah that has 4 open sides that show hospitality to their guests and symbolizes the home they will create together. Their Rabbi was very funny and stood on a stool since Maureen and Ralph both happen to be tall:-) Each table had a different center piece with gold accents and a ribbons Maureen had won over the years horseback riding. Their head table had a horse that was her grandparents and green garland accented the cake and sweetheart table. Their guests got the dancing started before dinner was served and did stop until the night was over! Congrats Maureen & Ralph!! xoxoxo

Erin and Adam chose Tampa Bay Watch for their wedding which is not only a beautiful location but is also a non-profit that works to preserve the ecological balance of Tampa Bay, which is the largest estuary in Florida. Erin and her bridesmaids are all FSU alumni and while they got ready wore super cute matching silk robes. They each had their own style of dress in either pink or Mauve. They boys were in beige tuxes with pink ties and American flag socks. Erin's Mom is from Hawaii so there were many hawaiian touches they incorporated throughout the wedding. The ceremony was positively breathtaking. The mother's of both the bride and groom put leigh's on both of them after they walked down the aisle, a hawaiian tradition! The officiant was one of Adam's closest childhood friends and attended high school with them both. Before he began the ceremony, he blew on a conch shell three times. The color palette was shades of blush, champagne, and gold. With white and pink florals, cigars, and custom chevron & Florida State corn hole! Adam is from a huge family, one of twelve children. When it came time for the best man's toast, who of course was one of his brothers, it was filled with several hilarious childhood stories. Such a perfect day for this sweet couple! Congrats Erin and Adam! xoxoxo

Jen-L and Michal had an intimate wedding at her parents home in Lutz. The details were beautiful, burlap, lace, candles, in stunning DIY fashion. Their living room that has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake was was decorated with white chivaris, linens, and florals. The dining room had a long table in the center with a burlap and lace runner for the cake topped with 2 penguins. Jen-L's mother made all the desserts and yummy treats for the dessert table, and they had a coffee bar with sugar sticks, whipped cream, and little delicious accents. Jen-L had fabulous blue Christian Louboutin's and she wore a gorgeous lace gown. The ceremony was on the lawn next to the lake. A burlap runner led the bridal party from the house, over the wooden bridge decorated with mason jars and candles to the beautiful floral trellis where Jen-L and Michal said their vows at sunset. Everyone enjoyed lobster, dancing, and a beautiful evening of dancing outside! Congrats Jen-L and Michal! xoxoxo
