Samantha + Joe Step Into The Limelight | The Sunset by Gulf Drive | Bradenton Beach, FL

Samantha and Joe met on eharmony in November of 2014. They were living in Manhattan in an apartment in Hell's Kitchen, Joe took her to one of their favorite restaurants and then up to the rooftop of their building and he proposed there with the skyline as their beautiful backdrop. Joe never fails to make her laugh. They are each other's best friend and are always happy to spend time together, no matter what they are doing.

Samantha and Joe had their wedding at The Sunset by Gulf Drive Café right next to the beautiful blue ocean. They invited friends and family from all parts of the states to join them in one of the most important day of their lives. The ceremony site was lined with white chair with coral linens and flower pedals that trailed up to where they would be standing to say their I-Do’s. Reception was beach themed and provided seats to their guests until it was time to party! It was truly a pleasure to be part of their special day! Congratulation to the newlyweds!!!

Samantha + Timothy Step Into The Limelight | Honeymoon Island + Dunedin Golf Club | Dunedin, FL

Samantha & Timothy met in college and doing life together just made perfect sense!
They are best friends and love experiencing new moments together. They enjoy going on vacations, out to dinner and watching sporting events. Both Samantha & Timothy are laid back and truly revel in taking each occasion of their lives with simplicity appreciating the good… not taking family nor friends for granted. We loved watching how friends assisted during their wedding day with a purity of heart and excellence.

The ceremony was casual and surrounded with family + friends. Honeymoon Island was the perfect backdrop for Sam & Tim, they both love the beach and have shared lots of family memories on the water.

Dunedin Golf Club was such a breath of fresh air, the golf course gave their wedding a romantic change of scenery with the gorgeous sunset peeking through the trees and greenery all around.

We so loved being able to capture this joyous moment for Sam & Tim!
