Danielle + Chad Step Into the Limelight | Harborside Chapel + Isla Del Sol Yacht & Country Club | St. Petersburg, FL

Danielle and Chad met at a mutual friends birthday party before the start of her senior year at the University of Central Florida. After their friends party Chad left and went back to Panama City Beach to finish out his summer break. They stayed close by chatting over the phone and the very next month Chad came back for Danielle’s birthday. That’s when they decided to make it “official.” Danielle and Chad like to joke around with one another, go to the movies, and try new restaurants, but their most favorite thing to do is to just be with one another. No matter what they are doing OR not doing.

The proposal came when Danielle, Chad, and select family members were on vacation in New Orleans. When deciding what to do while they were there, Chad announced that everyone should go to happy hour in the french quarter. On their way, Chad saw a horse and carriage and decided he wanted Danielle and himself to take a picture with it.  While Danielle was getting situated by the carriage she turned back around to see Chad on bent knee, THEN, he proceeded to ask her to marry him in French! Proposing in front of the carriage didn’t come unplanned though, turns out Chad had pre-arraigned for the horse and carriage to take his soon-to-be finance on a romantic ride through the french quarter. How romantic!

Danielle and Chad’s ceremony took place at the beautiful Harborside Chapel. It was very special to them to get married here because it is where Chad’s family worships. After the ceremony, all of their guests poured outside of the church and lined the walkway to cheer for the newlywed couple as they made their exit! 

The festivities continued throughout the night at Isla Del Sol Yacht & Country Club, where they watched the sun set and danced the night away with their friends and family.

Congratulations Danielle + Chad, and go UCF Knights!

Sharada + Nivasen Step Into The Limelight | Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach | Clearwater Beach, FL

We had such the pleasure working with Nivi and Shar who had the most spectacular wedding at the beautiful Wyndham Clearwater Beach Resort. Our day started nice and early with Shar in a room full of her loved ones who helped her get ready for the big day. Red and Gold covered her from head to toe - she looked stunning! Once both were ready, they gathered themselves with their family and went right into the ceremony which was located in the grand ballroom. A gorgeously decorated stage seated both Nivi’s and Shar’s family and the ritual which would bring blessings, prosperity and happiness took place. Once they were officially married and blessed by all their friends and family, the two enjoyed a nice walk at the beach before heading back inside to get ready for their reception dinner which they had been highly anticipating.

Their reception ball room was vibrant and strategically decorated to the couples liking. Large blue and silver drapes covered the stage where the couple would sit on an elegant white chair. A flower wall was set as a background and the entire room was lit in blue uplighting. Guest tables consistent of different centerpieces which were made of glass and silver pieces. Dancing was definitely the main focus of this gathering and the two along with their guest danced the entire night away. What a celebration this was! Congratulations to the newly weds!!!

Ann + Phillip Step Into The Limelight | The Rusty Pelican | Tampa, FL

Ann Marie and Phillip met through work when Ann Marie reserved a private tour for Thriller Speedboats. She wasn’t going to go since she was working but Phillip insisted that she join them. It was a beautiful sunny Florida day and she couldn’t resist. She told herself, “why not?” A couple days after the tour Ann Marie and Phillip arranged to have their very first date. On this date, they could tell that they loved everything about each other!

Phillip proposed to Ann Marie by customizing their new puppy’s dog tag. A friend of theirs came over to visit their new addition and that’s when Ann noticed something different about her puppy. There was a tag on the collar, she looked at the tag and their was a picture of Ann and Phillip together as well as, “will you marry me?” ….and of course she said yes!

Ann Marie and Phillips’ wedding was directly on the water which provided amazing waterfront views of Tampa as well as the Sunset…and boy did they get an AWESOME sunset! The views outside as well as inside of their beautifully decorated reception room were enchanting. 

The 17th day of the month is an important day for Ann Marie and Phillip. It was when they had their first date and now, it is the date of their marriage.

In a “tale as old as time,” congratulations Ann Marie and Phillip on becoming husband and wife!

Michelle + Jayson Step Into The Limelight | Town Manor on the Lake B&B | Auburndale, FL

Jayson’s brother, Ricky, introduced this couple to each other. Michelle didn’t want to date a friend’s brother…but…they met and clicked right away! This chill couple is very laid back and enjoys weekends with each other and their kids.  They enjoy UFC, food, and just spending time together.

Jayson and Michelle had dinner reservations at Ciros in Tampa. Michelle had a feeling “it” would happen at dinner. Jayson gave her a few small gifts prior to leaving and the last “gift” was Michelle looking up to him on his knee with a beautiful ring asking for her hand in marriage!

Jayson says about Michelle, “I love her eyes and smile. I love how fun she is. I love watching her with my girls and how caring she is. She’s stunning. She makes me feel very special.” Michelle says about Jayson, “I love how comfortable we’ve been since day one. He’s so smart, makes me laugh and is incredibly handsome. He makes me feel beautiful and loved every single day. He’s my person.”

Jayson and Michelle loved the feeling of Town Manor when they toured the venue. It offered both the indoor and outdoor ambiance they were looking for.  “A great place with attention to detail.” Their rustic yet elegant  wedding was a relaxed day for everyone. They forgo traditional formal activities so their guests could just come, eat, listen to good music and celebrate! There were tapes style foods freely flowing throughout the evening while guests drank, had fun and partied! The couple loved spending time with their besties and family. Having them there for their special day was amazing. Michelle could not wait to say , “I do” with Jayson. His face when she walk down the isle was filled with love and excitement.

Meagan and Barry were married in a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Florida Aquarium!  Meagan had always dreamed of having her wedding at the aquarium surrounded by the sparkling turquoise waters and sea life of the coral reef tank for her ceremony and a reception designed with blue lighting and dendrobium orchids, which were the perfect compliment to the color palette of the space!  The couple said their vows and exchanged rings in front of the majestic under sea tank accompanied by fish, sharks and sea turtles and celebrated in the new Mosaic ballroom with their closest friends and family!  Their daughter Sydney was so sweet as the flower girl and I am happy that we were able to capture a few loving moments between her and her parents on this special day!  I loved the romantic moments we photographed of the newlyweds together backdropped by the water and in the rock windows of the wetlands!  I loved the energy of the reception as the happy couple celebrated and the fun sparkler send off from their guests!  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Rome!
