Ksenia & Konstantin…Siesta Key Beach & TPC Prestancia, Sarasota Florida, Sarasota Bradenton, Destination Wedding Photographer

We just had to share a few images from Ksenia & Konstantin’s beautiful and very Russian wedding!  There wasn’t a time during this wedding that I didn’t see the bride & groom as well as their guests smiling and laughing. Konstantin told us that in the Russian culture they don’t want the celebration to end and he was not kidding.  We loved being a part of all of the wonderful Russian Wedding traditions such as the groom paying Ransom for his bride in order to win her back from her family.  Not to mention the groom looking at a large sheet with kiss marks from all of the bride’s family, including the bride herself and if he can’t guess his bride’s kiss mark he must pay more money to get to her.  It was so much fun watching Konstantin being put-through so much, making the moment when he finally saw Ksenia that much more special.  I guess the most amazing part of the day is seeing how all of the bride and grooms friends and family were a true part of their wedding day – they were there for it all and played such a big role in their celebration.  So, although there were many, many, many glasses raised that evening we will raise another one to Ksenia & Konstantin, “Na sdarovie” (I think that is how you say it, spell it??) and here’s to many years of love and happiness!

Bridget & Ryan…Crest Hollow Country Club New York Wedding, New York Wedding Photographer, Sarasota Bradenton Wedding Photographer

Well, we knew that we were going to LOVE photographing this wedding. To start it was our favorites – the Killian family!! They are the kindest most joyful group of people you will ever meet. Their family bond is hard to describe in words but boy is it contagious and it makes me smile just writing about them. And all you have to do is spend two minutes with Ryan and you know just why Bridget chose Ryan to be her life partner because he definitely exudes that same joy for life. So on a beautifully chilly Valentine’s Day these two smiling, beautiful people said, “I do” and we were more than honored to be a part of their celebration. Snow storms rolled in the day before and the day after but on that day there was nothing but blues skies and sunshine and everything was just as it should be. So as always, here’s to Bridget & Ryan and to a lifetime of love, laughter, joy and always remembering that every day is a gift to be cherished. Congratulations!!!

Laura & Jon…NYC Engagement Session, Sarasota, Bradenton, New York, Destination Wedding Photographer

Even though Laura & Jon have opted for a warmer often sunnier location for their big day (here in beautiful Sarasota, Florida), they decided to keep their Engagement Session close to home and we were not complaining!  A place where the city never sleeps and the winter never seems to end but once you’ve lived there you always seem to call it home…New York City.  Jon’s love of Central Park made our location easy and really, how can you go wrong with Central Park in NYC.  Though we were trudging through ankle deep snow and balancing on slippery sidewalks all while chattering our teeth, it was an amazing Engagement Session.  Laura & Jon are sweet, fun and open to anything and the cold and snow were just an added, beautiful detail in their eyes…and in ours too.  So here’s to strolling through Central Park on a chilly day in February…thanks so much Laura & Jon for being such marvelous company.  Now onto your Gorgeous and Warm and Sunny (did I mention warm?) Wedding Day!
