Rachel + Anthony Step Into The Limelight | The Birchwood | St. Petersburg, FL

I don’t think we ever danced so much at a wedding before! We could not stand still. The room was so alive and filled with JOY, it was contagious! 
That’s how the whole day was for these two. They beamed happiness!
Rachel & Anthony dated for 7 years before tying the knot in front of close friends and family. They enjoy cooking and traveling (always in style).
St. Paul's Catholic Church is a particularly meaningful location for Rachel as she attended elementary + middle school there and now Rachel got to marry the love of her life where so many other beautiful memories took place. Rachel loves Anthony's big heart for people and she admires his generosity and kindness. Rachel is more of a reserved gal who finds pure contentment in being genuine and loving towards others.
Rachel & Anthony’s wedding day was the epiphany of classic elegance meeting “the need to party!” Their guests enjoyed a night of dancing surrounded by glamour and long-lasting memories at the never disappointing Birchwood in downtown St. Pete.
Rachel & Anthony, we know you both will enjoy life. We wish you both ALL the dancing and “amazing culinary” life can possibly bring.

Kristen + Eric Step Into The Limelight | Museum of Fine Arts | St. Petersburg, FL

Kristen + Eric met on a snowy night in Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 2012 and have been on many adventures together ever since. Whether it is snowboarding, cliff jumping, kayaking, hiking, they both have SO much fun together! In true adventurous fashion, Eric proposed to Kristen in a living treehouse in Burlington, Vermont! 

Recently, Kristen + Eric have started a new chapter of their lives by moving to Florida. When Kristen + Eric were deciding where to have their wedding they decided that they wanted their family to experience Florida’s tropical atmosphere, as well as, having their guests embark on an adventure of their own. It just so happens that the weather this time of year is perfect for vacations….and weddings, so there was no better time to showcase their new hometown! 

On their wedding day, the weather was perfect and with a slight breeze ensuring that their northern guests did not get too hot. The ceremony atmosphere at the Museum of Fine Arts’ garden gave a little bit of ‘old Florida’ charm as well as classic elegance. When the ceremony came to conclusion and Kristen + Eric turned to their guests to be announced as husband and wife, their guests erupted in the most exciting and heartfelt moment I have ever experienced. It was a true celebration of love!

Congratulations on becoming Mr. and Mrs. Eric + Kristen, you are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met ♥️
