Caitlin & Drew…Bella Collina Wedding, Monteverde, Florida, Florida Wedding Photographer

Caitlin & Drew’s wedding was surreal.  It was like taking a walk down a quiet street in Tuscany.  If we could personally create the perfect day for our couples, Caitlin & Drew’s wedding day at Bella Collina would be it.  Their wedding day was so warm and inviting in so many ways, one being Caitlin & Drew themselves, so sure, happy and ready to say I do.  Then there was the completely authentic and charming grounds of Bella Collina, the images will have to speak for that as I don’t know when I would be able to stop.  In saying that, with so many weddings we have had the pleasure of shooting the true beauty is always found in the couples and their story and unique connections with those they love.  It’s about Caitlin’s close relationship with her mom and sister.  And the way Caitlin’s dad looked at her for the first time in her wedding dress, as if to say, “Where did my little girl go?”  It’s the bond that Drew and his son Baylor have and to see how Baylor and Caitlin are creating their own special bond as well.  Weddings are meant to celebrate not just where we are now but also where we’ve been and who has loved us along the way.  So here’s to Caitlin & Drew and their story of love…

Julie & Christopher…Marie Selby Botanical Gardens & The Hyatt Regency Wedding, Sarasota Florida, Florida Wedding Photographer

True class and beauty that is how I would sum up Julie & Chris.  And these characteristics made themselves present throughout their wedding day.  You can’t help but be in awe of Julie when you are in a room with her…she is truly beautiful and her gorgeous lace dress with her cathedral length veil was enough to bring you over the edge.  Lush lavender, silver and blush pinks graced their sunset ceremony beneath the Pavilion and among the foliage at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  And then the blush draped ballroom at Sarasota’s Hyatt Regency was something out of magazine.  Beyond all that was gorgeous about this wedding (and it was ALL gorgeous), Julie & Chris and their family and friends were never without smiles, laughter, and even a few happy tears.  This family was there to celebrate the love and coming future for two very special people and we feel so lucky that we were able to tell their wedding story.  Here’s to the beginning of many amazing stories ahead.

Natalia & Stephen…Palm Island Resort Wedding, Sarasota Wedding Photographer

There are just some weddings that we shoot where you can just feel the rightness of it all.  The bride and groom, the family members, the friends – it all just seems meant to be; everything and everyone in perfect harmony.  This is what Natalia & Stephen’s wedding day felt like…everyone there together to celebrate the true love of two remarkable people.  Yes, the wind was a bit gusty that day on beautiful Palm Island, as I am sure Natalia will attest, but that wind played in some gorgeous favor when it came to capturing their moments.  Natalia & Stephen are so wonderful to be around and their relaxed nature was really emphasized in every aspect of their day; truly, a classic and organic beach wedding at its best.  We have to say that meeting these two and telling their wedding day story was a true pleasure.  Congratulations again to Natalia & Stephen.

Dana & Doug…Wedding at The Vinoy Renaissance & The Birchwood, Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida Wedding Photographer

It really doesn’t get any better than Dana & Doug – these two are awe-inspiring to say the least.  When these two are together their laughter and charm pull you in and you are hooked.  And with that mindset these two vowed to make their wedding day a day to remember and trust me, their family and friends are probably still reeling.  It was an epic celebration for sure!  Their wedding was such a great mix of beautiful locations from The Vinoy to the Flora Wylie Park for a stunning ceremony and off to The Birchwood for the reception, all among the vibrancy of Downtown St. Petersburg.  All of the details were such a beautiful mix of modern glamour with soft, feminine appeal, very fitting to Dana’s style.  Fun, beauty, sentimentality, love, laughter…this wedding had it all and then some.  And I can’t end this without saying just a little something extra about Dana (we love you too Doug).  Dana is an example of true strength and beauty from the inside out and those who know her are better for it.  Again, we are so grateful that Dana & Doug chose us to document their unforgettable wedding day, congratulations.
