{Brittany & Will @ Innisbrook Resort}

I've gotten to know Brittany and Will over the last year and I remember when I first met them, Brittany telling me her vision for her wedding day was classic romance, with burgundy, gold and pink accents.  WOW, is all I have to say!  It couldn't have been more stunningly gorgeous, and not just the setting and details, but how it felt to be a part of it!  I love the flowy burgundy gowns her bridesmaids wore with rose gold jewelry Brittany gave them as a gift.  Her gown had illusion panels on the sides that were such a unique and different detail.  She wore glittery Jimmy Choo heels with crystal earrings and a chapel length veil.  Brittany's mom and maid of honor helped her get in her gown as we had the bridesmaids anxiously awaiting to she her totally ready!  Before first look with dad, her 2 ring bearers came in to see her.  Brittany had nannied for them since they were little ones!  Will and the guys were in black tuxes and had 2 looks!  Their first was ties with their favorite NFL team colors before changing to black bow ties and American Flag socks.  The last time we were at St. Ignatius was for Sara and John's wedding, who were actually here as guests so it was so nice to see them again.  Brittany walked down the aisle with her dad to meet Will at the end of the aisle and as their wedding hashtag said, #simonsaysido!  Oh man, the bridge where we photographed the Brittany and Will, and the wedding party is my new favorite place at Innisbrook. The light coming through the trees was amazing.  Before the guests were seated in the reception, Brittany and Will got to see the room totally done. Their head table draped in white with greenery and candles.  The floral centerpieces actually glowed through the mercury glass and that cake!  They also had a fabulous spread of mini doughnuts and little boxes of cookies for favors that said "A sweet ending to a new beginning".  As Brittany and Will walked through the room they were in awe and Brittany said it was more than she could have dreamed for.  I'll stop talking so you can start looking:-)  Congratulations Brittany and Will, it was more than we could have dreamed of working with you all!!!! xoxoxox    Church | St. Ignatius | Venue & Cake | Innsbrook Resort | Gown | Nikki's Glitz and Glam Boutique | Gown Designer | Allure Bridals | Makeup | Beauty By Bree | Hair | Kalli Elisa & Brittany Cabral | DJ | Grant Hemond | Bouquets | Iris and Ivy | Event Decor | Atmospheres Designs  | String Duo | Ensemble Aevia  | Chivari Chairs | Chivari Chair Rentals | Videography | 5 Star Production | Doughnuts | Mini Doughnut Factory | Limo | Network Transportation

{Rebecca & Danny @ Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club}

I am in love with the color palette Rebecca picked for the bridesmaids dresses! They wore different shades of blue, light gray and mauve.  Rebecca’s gown was simple but detailed with a crystal sash and sparkly platinum shoes.  Danny and the guys wore navy suits with America flag socks. The lightning was so pretty coming through the trees where we took photos before the ceremony of the guys and girls. The ceremony was on the 10th hole of the golf course under the big oak tree lined with flower petals and wooden arch that Danny’s dad made.  Danny anxiously awaited his bride and had the sweetest look when he say her dad escorting her down the aisle.  The scene there for the the ceremony and photos is just stunning.  The reception décor had an elegant ambiance with candles and tall crystal floral centerpieces. The table numbers were held by huge clothespins that were such a unique touch. To remember their loved ones who couldn’t be there, there was a memory table with a lantern burning. Rebecca and Danny are huge craft beer fans and had a bottle Coppertail (which is a local Tampa brewery) with a burlap ribbon tied to it holding a custom engraved bottle opened and thank you tag.  The reception was full of fun and sweet words given by their maid of honor and best man.  We got to sneek them out for a few photos at night which is always one of our favorite things to do!   Congrats Rebecca & Danny!! xoxoxo

{Samantha & Jeff @Innisbrook Golf & Spa Resort}

2.21.15 was literally the most beautiful day for Samantha and Jeff's wedding under the canopy of the big oak tree on the 10th hole at Innisbrook Resort.  Samantha gave each of her parents a custom made handkerchief with a sweet message to each of them.  She looked gorgeous, and I love how simple but elegant the details were.  The girls were in navy dresses with white bouquets and the flower girls had navy sashes with little crowns.  When Jeff got a glimpse of her walking down the aisle it was the sweetest!!  They wrote their own vows and I love how they both talked about how important it is for them to be amazing parents to their children someday. I think even just that little piece of they day totally describes the couple that they are, and how much they love their family and friends. They wrote letters to each other and placed them in a box with their favorite bottle of wine (Dreaming Tree, which happens to be mine too:-).  They are not to open the box until their 5th anniversary unless they have an argument where they really need a reminder of their wedding day and how much they love each other.  The reception tables had navy linens with gold chargers and alternating tall and short center pieces.  They had little notes that said "the key to a good relationship" for their guests to sign and write down advice for them. Jeff loves Reese's cups and Samantha's mom had a friend make a little surprise for him.  Behind their cake was 2 giant Reese's cups filed with peanut butter and chocolate ganache!  There was a pretty awesome Michael Jackson dance off and I have to say, Samantha's dad has moves! The entire day was perfection and absolutely loved every minute!! Their wedding hashtag was #daviswedbestdayever and absolutely was! Congrats Samantha and Jeff!!! xoxoxo
