Kristen + Joe Step Into The Limelight | Piedmont Park + Farr Family Farm | Atlanta, GA

Kristen and Joe originally met at work,. Their office staff would go out after work and Kristen was able to see Joe's true personality. She claims he could not keep her away, plus he liked her a little bit too. ;) They quickly discovered they have similar interests. It's one of those unique chapters in life that just doesn't have a title, the story just wrote itself and they were together.

Kristen and Joe went on a cruise around Valentines day of 2019 and on 02.10.19. Joe said he wanted to go see the front of the ship. It was nighttime therefore there were not a lot of people around and he said "you know I love you right" then got down on one knee and proposed to Kristen. So sweet! 

Kristen says, “I love how Joe is such a dork he can always find a way to make me laugh, and when he laughs he has this cute little giggle. He is also so smart it still amazes me to this day. He loves his family so much (even the crazies) and has grown to be part of mine. He's also an Asian that likes country music, what could i not love about that?”

Joe says, “I love Kristen for not only her intelligence and beauty, but her character and her accepting of me for who I am...I believe she phrased it "a dork". I love how she is always willing to take on new adventures with me. She loves her family (yes like mine, even the crazies) as I love mine. Plus who can resist a country girl!”

We had such a pleasure getting to know not only Kristen and Joe, but also Joe’s family for their engagement portrait session. The happy couple currently live and work in Atlanta. So it only made since that we began the session in Piedmont Park - in the heart of downtown Atlanta. We were blessed to have such a clear day with no rain in the middle of so many summer thunder storms! We then made the drive north to Rydal, GA. I was blown away to experience the juxtaposition of the peace of being in midst of God’s natural creation on the Farr family farm with the liveliness and hustle & bustle of downtown!

We are so excited to for Kristen and Joe and look forward to capturing more of their love story at their wedding next spring at the famous “Pink Palace”, the Don CeSar on St Pete Beach.

Amy + Richard | Step Into The Limelight | Armature Works | Tampa, FL

Amy and Richard got Married at the beautifully modern and rustic venue, Armature Works. During their wedding process, they both decided they wanted something just a little different than the high glamour, majestic setting. They wanted something that had a sense of high energy with the right amount of edginess. This venue was just that! This gorgeous couple started their day getting ready with their closest family and friends. Amy wore a beautiful custom gown that had lace details all around and was paired with a very fine and light vail. She walked down the aisle so confidently and with the biggest smile as she saw Richard standing there waiting for her. It was the sweetest moment of all! Love and laughed exuded out of this very short and sweet ceremony. and once the couple said their I-Do’s, they accompanied their friends and family to a reception dinner up on the second floor. White Floral, candles and custom wood names were placed on the tables for their guest’s enjoyment. Each table, was unique and with it’s own little touch of Amy’s detailed eye, perfectly selected to give all of us the wow-factor. It was such an amazing time with the two of them, I wish them the best of the best!

Danielle + Brian Step Into The Limelight | Hilton at Resorts World Bimini | Bahamas

 January 14, 2011 Danielle and Brian met through her girlfriend from middle school. Danielle had just moved back to FL and called her to go to happy hour. After being there awhile, Danielle’s friend invited her to come back to her house, insisting she should meet her husband's brother. Danielle went…and went back the next evening too! Brian and Danielle spent hours on the trampoline talking and getting to know each other.  Three months later he moved in with Danielle and the rest is history!

Brian proposed on the beach in Bimini! To them this place is magical and on vacation in July of 2018 Brian asked Danielle to go watch the sunset on the beach on the south island... the sun had almost set and Danielle was being “her true self and being cranky!” Danielle was getting eaten alive by no-see-ums and mosquito's... she had turned around to put the OFF back on their golf cart and he was on one knee! Brian told Danielle he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her and he couldn't imagine going through life with anyone else. Danielle burst into tears! They stayed there for a while and Danielle was in complete shock. Shock that he actually said the words "Will you marry me?!" It finally happened, he asked her!

In Danielle’s own words… “What I love about Brian is that he loves me for me no matter what no matter what I look like, or what my hair looks like, he loves me for pure me. He says that I'm his rock and he loves how easy going I am.”

Together Danielle and Brian enjoy traveling to Bimini, hanging out at the beach and boating. They LOVE to be on the water and in the sun, having a beer and enjoying each others company or in the company of their friends. With how much they love Bimini and the energy from being there and how special it is to us, it only made sense they wanted all of the special people in their lives to join them on their special day and enjoy themselves as much as they do!

From the very first time they went to Bimini, Danielle would think to herself- how amazing would it be to have a wedding over here... and the dream came true!! Their wedding was classy/elegant, a little laid back beach style, no shoes with a dance, drink and be merry vibe! Being able to watch the sunset on this very special day was a true highlight for everyone! Loved, happy, alive, free….MARRIED! Congratulations Danielle and Brian!

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.

Danielle + Daniel STEP INTO THE LIMELIGHT | CASA MONICA + THE TREASURY | ST. AUGUSTINE, FL

Danielle and Daniel enjoy hanging out with family and goofing around - they are the perfect balance for each other! They met each other through online dating on Match and had their first date July of 2016.  They instantly connected after their first date and never looked back. Daniel proposed while they were in Charleston, Danielle's favorite city. They went out to dinner at a rooftop restaurant, went on a tour, and then when they returned to the hotel he asked her there. He was going to ask at the rooftop bar, but a bad storm occurred. They both enjoy watching football together. They often go to a Gator Bar to watch the Gator games.  They love playing putt-putt, trying out different breweries, playing Marvel movies, Games of Thrones, and spending friends.

Their romantic wedding provided a vacation-like destination for guests. The style and theme was formal, and with a touch of rustic; yet everything was easy going and fun. Everyone was excited, relaxed, and happy. They made their welcome sign, table numbers and board themselves! The color palette included blush pink, rose gold, light grey, dark plum and sage green. The flowers were this romantic couple’s favorite detail. Their favorite part of the day was when they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.

Congratulations to this sweet couple. We truly “Treasure”d getting to know you both and capture your love story!
