When Jennifer and Casey met while out on the town with friends, it truly was love at first sight. At the end of the evening, like a scene from a movie, their first kiss through the taxi door was as electric as their first kiss as husband and wife at their waterfront nuptials! The couple exchanged vows in front of 150 of their closest friends and family at the Davis Islands Garden Club near downtown Tampa.
This week I took my Mom to go see her favorite fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast, and could not wait any longer to share some images from our recent Beauty and the Beast inspired styled shoot. Although this shoot is currently pending publication by a well-known style blog and magazine, I just had to share a few swoon-worthy images for all those fellow Disney fans out there! Enjoy!
Dana and Al are jet-setting professionals that have traveled the world, and have the enormous group of friends and family to show for it! They wanted a unique and memorable wedding that their guests would never forget, and what better way to showcase their new roots in Tampa than a garden wedding overlooking the iconic Bayshore Boulevard, the bay, and downtown? They paired their classic, elegant style with a little Latin flair and the result was a stunning Fall event fit for the fun and discerning palates alike!
Elizabeth and Matt were married at a beutiful private waterfront estate in Odessa, Florida. The sprawling lawn would be the perfect setting for their all outdoor wedding, and although a forecast of rain threatened their day, the skies cleared just in time to move the chairs back out to the water's edge for the ceremony, as everyone walked down the aisle to the sweet sounds of a string trio. Canopy lighting and chandeliers were suspended under a wall-less tent, and wood feasting tables were surrounded by round tables dressed in neutral linens. Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet before dancing all night long on the pool deck to the live band. When it was time for dessert, guests had their choice of wedding cake or smores toasted at the dockside fire pit.
