{Stacey & Ryan @ Karnes Stables}

Stacey and Ryan incorporated so many fun and thought details into their wedding! Stacey's dad is very good at ironing from his days in the military and he steamed all the girls dresses:-)  Stacey wore her mom's pearl earrings and great grandmother's 50th anniversary ring. The blue crystal wishbone broach on her bouquet was her grandmother's.  Stacey's mom helped her into her gown and her bridesmaids had the best reaction when they saw her all ready.  Ryan and the guys were in gray with royal blue ties that looked amazing with the girls royal blue dresses and white and light blue flowers.  It was one of those days you are on pins and needles with the forecast but thankfully the rain held off so they could get married in a beautiful ceremony under the big oak tree.  The colors were so vibrant since it had rained eariler in the day. The stable was decorated with lace runners, blue linens and white lanters. Instead of a cake they had a fabulous spread of all different pies, lemon, lime, strawberry and cupcakes made of cookies with an oreo on top!  The "pie topper" was from Ryan's granparents that dated back from when he returned from WWII.  They did bbq. and had custom little bottles of hot and sweet bbq sauce for their guests to enjoy.  They also had a little bride and groom strawberry they ate instead of a cake cutting and Ryan may have gotten a little mini pie in the face!  Ryan and the guys had a special serandade for Stacey just before he took of the garter.  There were lawn games under the twinkle lights, dancing in the stable and just an amazing time had by all! Congrats Ryan & Stacey!!! xoxoxo

{Sofia & Austin @ Safety Harbor Resort and Spa}

Sofia had the prettiest custom pearl hangars made for her beautiful Spanish lace gown and bridesmaid dresses.  Her veil was the same veil her mother wore in her wedding over 30 years ago.  After everyone was bridal ready we got Austin all setup to do a first look with Sofia before the ceremony.  These two and just the sweetest!  While the guests were arriving for the ceremony, there may have been an appearance by the Pope:-) They became the official Mr. & Mrs. Carmack at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church and it was the perfect day for photos at Phillipe Park, right across the street.  The ballroom was decorated with a pretty blush hue and had lanterns on each table with "fairy lights" that gave a little whimsical feel to the atmosphere.  Sofia has 2 brothers, and her dad gave the sweetest speech about his little girl and how they adore Austin and are so excited to welcome him into the family.  The day was full of amazing moments that we were so honored to capture and be a part of!  Congrats Sofia & Austin!!! xoxoxo

{Jessie and Todd @ Davis Island Garden Club}

This was an extra special one because we’ve known Jessie for a number of years now.  Not only does she work for Breezin and is a wedding friendor, but, she’s been a bridesmaid in quite of few of her friend’s weddings that we’ve photographed as well!  She’s even caught the bouquet at least once that we’ve seen:-)  Ashley and Candace were 2 of her bridesmaids, so it was so nice to see them again too!  I would say her wedding style was modern simplicity, with the colors being black and white with gold accents.  Jessie wore her grandmother’s engagement ring that has been passed down over the years.  In the box was a note that said who has also worn it and their wedding date, so they can add 11.21.15 to the post it.  They did a first look and bridal party photos beforehand so they could enjoy every minute of the party.  The most unique detail we loved was that they had an artist at the back of the ceremony, literally sketching it out on canvas as it unfolded!  They had the cutest flower girls and ring bears, the little ones rode down the aisle in style.  Jessie’s brother officiated, and they did a toast with the bridal party during the ceremony. Jessie and Todd met at a kickball game so they had a kickball there for all their guests to sign!  The reception was decorated with long family style tables with striped black and white runners, white lanterns, and gold chargers and sparkly table numbers.  The perfect finishing touch was the black and white checkered dance floor for everyone to dance on under the crystal chandeliers.  Lots and lots of dancing and fun moments for these 2! Congrats Jessie & Todd!!!  So happy for you and honored to be a party of! xoxox

{Amber & Michael @ Avila Golf & Country Club}

Amber & Michael's wedding was beautiful and elegant with a black and sangria color palette and hints of super heros:-) Michael loves the Avengers, so he and his best man had on Iron Man and Thor cufflinks and socks.  Amber wrote the sweetest cards to her dad and grandpa and had special photo cufflinks made for both of them to wear.  Amber's gown was stunning, and so were those sparkly jeweled Gianni Bini heels! The atrium at Avila makes for a gorgeous ceremony backdrop with chivari's and draping, it was perfect.  Amber walked down the staircase with her dad, and met her grandpa at the bottom so they could both walk her down the aisle to become Mrs. Chancey!  It was a gorgeous October day with sunlight streaming through the mossy trees on the golf course.  Amber's mom created the sangria and green center pieces and they had a little love candle on each place setting for the favor.  My favorite detail was their cake topper.  It had Amber as a bride, and Michael as a groom with an Iron Man helmet and suit under the tux (he actually had on an iron man shirt under his tux:-).  They even included their dog with a sign that said "my humans are getting married"!  Their first dance was choreographed with the perfect dip at the end!  Each of their bridal party toasted to fun memories of the couple and if you are wondering why Amber and Michael's champagne glasses are yellow, they toasted with Mountain Dew!  Congrats you guys, hope you are having a blast on your Californian honeymoon!! xoxoxo

{Rebecca & CJ @ The Hilton Clearwater Beach}

Becky & CJ traveled to Florida, with their closest friends and family, from Pittsburg, PA for their destination wedding.  The Florida rain did not cooperate with us to have their ceremony and reception outside, but, the rain cleared up and we had an absolutely breathtaking sunset for photos with them!  That was most important to Becky so I'm so happy it was just gorgeous! The colors palette was coral, ivory, and gray with some rustic beach accents.  From the minute they entered the reception, it was filled with happiness and a full dance floor!  Becky's dance with her dad included tossing a softball with him and at the very end of the evening they exited to sparklers and launching lanterns on the beach!  Congrats Becky & CJ! xoxoxo

{Melissa & Brian @ Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club}

First off, can we say how stunningly gorgeous Melissa looked in her blush gown?  Brian looked pretty handsome in his coordinating blue suit and pink tie:-)  Their wedding was full of very fun, and personal details which we absolutely love!  They had gift bags waiting for their guests at the hotel that had oranges, since Brian is from Florida, and Buckeye's (the chocolate and peanut butter kind), since Melissa is from Ohio.  Melissa's something old was her grandmother's diamond heart ring that she wore on her right hand. Something borrowed was a bracelet from her mother in law.  Something blue was an embroidered handkerchief and something new was her jewelry and shoes. They didn't see each other before the ceremony but read notes to each other and opened gifts. Brian gave her Michael Kors flip flops and jokingly wrote in the note…just in case you forget your new initials…MK for Melissa Kensrue :) She gave him a blue Kenneth Cole watch to match his suit.  Melissa's bouquet had a pendant from her Maid of Honor with the lyrics to her favorite Hillsong Song. We had an impromptu first look with Melissa's Dad. He was coming up to the bridal suite to see his little girl and I just so happened to catch him before he saw Melissa.  It was one of our favorite moments of the day and beyond sweet. Brian and Melissa's Pastor, Wes, married them under the patio at Tampa Palms with the beautiful view of the golf course. When they had their first kiss one of the little flower girls had the best reaction! The reception decor was pink, gray, and navy with lots of candles and mercury glass. Brian's sister-in-law, Julie, is a NY Pastry chef and made the macron favors. There were some special escort cards that were included at the reception.  Place cards for Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca (for Brian's love of Star Wars:-), their dog Selene, and some of their favorite spots were mixed in with all of their guests cards. Alessi Bakery created their cupcake tower and they made a special cupcake for Brian with all of their icing flavors because during the tasting her tried every flavor, as he should!  Melissa told us they had several events leading up to the day of the wedding, and their whole goal was investing in family, friends, and love. That really was the perfect theme to celebrate their marriage!  Congrats Melissa and Brian it was truly amazing!!! xoxox
