{Sara & Anthony @ Hilton Clearwater Beach}

Sara and Anthony live and work on Clearwater Beach so it was the perfect place for their aqua, seaside wedding!  Anthony had his the sleeves of his groomsmen's shirts monogrammed and fish cuff links!  Sara had silver starfish bracelets and seahorse necklaces for her girls and her bracelet was a coordinating aqua on.  Sara's son Jericho, (Coco for short) was the ring bearer just the sweetest. Sara got her beautiful gown on at the church and after she was totally ready Coco came in to see her and gave her a big hug right before she and Anthony held hands around the doorframe!  Anthony's great grandmother had a sweet sign on the back of her wheelchair! I'm usually at the front and as Sara entered the church with her dad I heard Anthony say "WOW" as he saw his bride for the first time.  The love he has for Sara and her son is literally contagious and so sweet.  Anthony's family owns the Surfside Taphouse that is right across from the Hilton so we made a stop there to say hi to everyone and for a toast!  The reception was decorated in simple beach chic style with white chivari's, and aqua details and uplighting.  Each table was named after an ocean animal with little beach chairs and glass accents.  Their sweets table was pretty fantastic with a huge cupcake tower and all kinds of sweet treat!  The cake topper was a little mini Anthony with a storm trooper helmet and Sara with Mickey Mouse ears. The finishing touch was a custom sand sculpture that Anthony's parents surprised them with!  Anthony and his mom started out with a traditional mother son dance, but broke into a mash up of dance moves!  One of my favorite moments was when Sara picked up Jericho and danced with her little boy, there was definitely not a dry eye in the room including ours!  Their wedding was so full of love and fun from all their friends and family and we so enjoyed it!  The last surprise was that Anthony didn't tell Sara where they were going on their honeymoon, just to pack for a tropical climate. Just before we left he told me they were going to the gorgeous Turks & Caicos!  Congrats Sara & Anthony it was truly an honor and so much fun! xoxo

Bakers Ranch

The same day we got to be a part of the Bakers Ranch Grand Opening we also got to be the first ones to photograph couples in some of the beautiful spots on the property.  The prettiness is worthy of it's own blog posting:-) Our models were actually Alla and Boris' son Alex and his wife Erin (which is extra special in itself) and Nolia (who works for Alla) and her husband Sam.  Kandice and I each took a couple and had some fun with the 3 gorgeous ceremony sites. This outdoor setting is really a photographer's dream! Here's some of our favorites:-) We are beyond excited to work with Bakers Ranch and their couples!!
