Rachel + Joe Step Into the Limelight | The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club | St. Petersburg, FL

“St. Pete elegance meets party of the year!” 

Joe and Rachel were set up on a blind date! Joe's Aunt Joanna and Rachel’s mom's friend Teresa work together as nurses at All Children's Hospital. They thought that they would be a good match, and they were so right! Together they enjoy boating, scuba diving, bike riding and playing with their pups. Joe proposed during a boat ride at their favorite spot, Sombrero Reef, in the Florida Keys. It is the most beautiful place and will forever mean so much to them! Joe and Rachel both have a sarcastic sense of humor and love making each other laugh.

Rachel and Joe planned a wedding that showcased to everyone their love for St. Pete. They both grew up his St. Pete and were proud to to bring out the beauty of the area at their wedding! Rachel dreamed of getting married at The Vinoy since she was in high school! It was their perfect, picturesque backdrop for their Old St. Pete style, elegant wedding featuring Florida palms. They love palm leaves incorporated them in the most elegant way! They also had a custom map of St. Pete created for their invitations as well as their menu cards. And obviously they loved their custom open bar! Another unique touch, were the custom-made tumblers guests took home, made personally by Joe! All take home goodies had a running theme, "Stolen from Rachel and Joe's Wedding”.

Overall there was an amazing party atmosphere with a wonderful and interactive band. When Joe began breaking out his amazing dance moves the party really got started! 

Their love for this city and each other was clearing SHINE-ing!!! They are true Floridians through and through!

Rachael + Nick Step Into The Limelight | The Don Cesar | St. Petersburg, FL

Rachael and Nick met in my Junior year of college. Rachael was in school for by BSN in Fort Lauderdale and Nick was on an internship for golf in Kendall Florida. They love going to sport events, mostly baseball games, hockey and football. The proposal came as a complete surprise. They had season tickets to Saint Louis Cardinal's spring training games and Nick got extra tickets to go on the field and in the dugout Nick got someone to film the whole thing. It was spectacular!

Rachael and Nick had always wanted to have their wedding on the beach so having it at the Don Cesar was definitely the perfect place to say their I Do’s. Their ceremony was beautifully decorated with floral and an arch that set just the right romantic mood for the couple. The day was gorgeous with the sky full of clouds. This made for some dramatic photos of the couple right before they went inside their reception room to celebrate the night away.

Heather & Rocky tied the knot at Yacht StarShip Cruises & Events Clearwater surrounded by family & friends.
They both love ocean, boating, sunsets ( all things Florida!). They enjoy camping, fishing, vacations and spending time with their kids. ( Splash a little football in there too!).
The inspiration for their wedding was all things nautical, in the classic navy blue, white and touches of gold.
Clearwater Beach was the perfect backdrop for their special day, it just tied it all together beautifully 💙
We had a blast celebrating these two and we wish them many years of happiness & Florida adventures.

Blaire + Brandon Step Into The Limelight | The Ringling Museum | Sarasota, FL

What an amazing day we had with Blaire and Brandon on this beautiful day in May. We started off the day at the Westin in Sarasota where both Brandon and Blaire got together with their bridal party to get ready for the big day. The time quickly came to put on the dress. Blaire looked spectacular in her gown! We traveled to The Ringling where both the ceremony and reception would take place right at the Ca D’zan. The view was gorgeous and this couple made it even more beautiful. There was floral EVERYWHERE in both ceremony and reception. A harpist played a song which gave way to Blaire’s walk down the aisle which was just a beautiful moment to cherish.

Once the ceremony was done, we went into the mansion and to the top of the exclusive tower that had an amazing view. This couple made it picture perfect and it was so much fun!

Brandon and Blaire, we really enjoyed being a part of your special day, congratulations!!!

They both sat at the beach and watched the sunset. That's when he proposed! To celebrate, they went to The Melting Pot for dessert and enjoyed each other’s company. Matt LOVES how kinda and caring Christina is and Christina loves how bold Matt is. Together, they enjoy watching movies and musicals.

Christina and Matt Got married in the church where Christina grew up in. Grace Episcopal Church was and has always been a part of her families like so it only made sense to say their I-Do’s there. Spanish architecture has always been attractive to the two, so the couple decided to have their reception at the beautiful Avila. Their decor was classic and romantic with blue candles, large, tall florals as center pieces, and an ombre blue cake. It was honestly such a beautiful time where the both of them spent quality time together as Mr. and Mrs. Congratulations!!!
