{Carrie + Mike @NOVA 535}

Retro flare mixed with night club casino royale! Who would have thought this could be pulled off at a wedding, but Carrie and Mike’s wedding at Postcard Inn and Nova 535 was the perfect match.  They got ready and saw each other for the first time at PCI.  The centerpiece in the ceremony was a backdrop made of 2 white doors and a red door in the middle.  The courtyard was lined with black chairs and glass vases with submerged red roses.   Even though Mike had already seen Carrie, he was still in awe of how gorgeous she looked as walked arm in arm with her dad.   Mike broke the glass and the party didn’t stop!  The inside of NOVA is exposed brick with shadowy lighting and artwork.  The centerpieces and florals had succulants and white and deep magenta.  In cocktail hour their guests played poker, got their caricatures sketched and had some photo booth fun.  They had glow sticks and all kinds of fun stuff for their guests to wear.  The biggest surprise of the evening, even we didn’t know about!  Mike LOVES and Michael Jackson and so he made an appearance and everyone had a blast with his performance and dancing along especially MikeJ  One of the most unique and fun receptions we have seen.  Congrats Carrie and Mike!! xoxoxo

{Jessica + Will @Tampa Museum of Art}

One of Jessica's bridesmaids left her a sweet little note to wake up to on the morning of her wedding!  Jessica looked stunning in her gown and the event was full of fun, beauty, and elegance!  For the ceremony, they had a custom designed metal backdrop outlined with orchids and calla lillies that was very unique.  Perfect for the chic downtown feel of the Tampa Museum of Art.  I love the look they created with the aqua linens and LOTS of pretty candle light for the reception.  Will has some pretty amazing dance moves, and the the entire day was so full of joy and fun.  It really couldn't have been more perfect!  Congrats Jessica and Will!!!! xoxoxo

{Lisa + Michael @Eastlake Woodlands}

Lisa and Michael had their sweet destination wedding at Eastlake Woodlands.  We setup a first look with them befor the ceremomy.  I love the shot of when she's riding down to the ceremony in the golfcart with her dad, they look so happy and relaxed!  We were able to get some fun moments with Michael and  his mom and brother when they were getting ready.  Lisa's brother was her best man and Michael's brother was his best man!  The color scheme was bright color florals and I love that Lisa had a pretty pink bouquet.  Their favors I haven't seen before, metal measuring spoons tagged with the saying "Love beyond measure" how sweet is that?  Totally feel free to steal that one:-)  We got some amazing pictures of them and in the distance with these 2 huge trees and some backlighting turned out amazing!! Congrats Lisa & Michael!!! xoxoxo
