HAL + REBEKAH | SINGER ISLAND BEACH WEDDING

When Hal first met Rebekah, she was like a breath of fresh air for him. There was something special, something real there that was worth pursuing. They spent the beginning of their relationship on opposite coasts of Florida, but they'll tell you, the distance only deepened their connection and forged an incredible bond between them. All of this was evident from the first moment I met them. So when Hal + Rebekah asked if I'd be willing to travel to Singer Island for their wedding, the answer was.....HECK YES! Any reason to spend another day with them, really. And the teal waters and blue skies of Singer Island didn't hurt either. It all made a beautiful backdrop for their morning ceremony and brunch reception at the Hilton.  

Hal + Rebekah--You both are so ridiculously fun + sweet. There's  a special place in my heart for the two of you. Always. I can't wait to see all the travel + Disney adventures you continue to go on. In honor of 'Wine Wednesday', I'm blogging your wedding on a Wednesday! ;) Adore you both!

ERIK + ANNAH | SUNKEN GARDEN - TAMPA, FL WEDDING

In their spare time, you can find them fixing up cars together. Yes, my beautiful bride donned in a lace dress also studied Automotive Mechanics. In fact that's how she and Erik met. You can  read more of their story HERE.

Erik + Annah married at the Sunken Gardens as the sun started to descend behind the trees. This day was nothing short of perfection + hospitality. Their families came together as one to celebrate this beautiful couple and their love story. You would've thought their families have been friends for decades. As I'm told, it's just the Italian way.

Erik + Annah--You are, simply put, the most beautiful souls. Thank you for not only allowing me to capture you wedding day, but for bringing me  into your family. Also, if I ever want to get a party started, I know who to call! ;) 

I can't thank these vendors enough. Grateful to know them, even more grateful to have the opportunity to work with them.

You're a vision, my friend!

Erik + Annah exchanged handwritten notes before the ceremony. 

His reaction <3 

All the excitement of being OFFICIAL! 

Twirl her around and pull her in close. Results: 

Cocktail hour + reception details. All the gorgeous, thanks to Phyl of Save the Date FL and Bloomingdale Florist. 

Hands down, cutest cake topper everrrrr. 

The speeches were by their dads, best man, and matron of honor/sister. Because family was involved with toasts, you know all the embarrassing stories came out. 

Ending it on this sweet note....A room full of people, but they're in their own little world. <3 

TYLER + ABBY | CLASSIC TAMPA, FL WEDDING

Every detail was carefully chosen, carefully crafted. All with an intention behind it, whether it was to honor a loved one or to embody a piece of their love story. A favorite moment of the day was the worship that broke out in the middle of their ceremony. For Tyler + Abby, without His love, their story wouldn't have been written into existence. In the very church where they met, grew up, and where Tyler proposed, they vowed to put Jesus at the center of it all. Their relationship is the kind that leaves you inspired to love better, to be better, to serve better.  

Tyler + Abby--I'm sure a simple 'thank you' does not suffice, but I am thankful for you both. I was hired to serve you, but I walk away as the one who is blessed. I'm excited for the path that lies ahead for you two. Many blessings and much love! xoxo!

Big thanks to all the vendors below who rocked this wedding. Honored to be on the same team with each and every one of you!

Stunnnnning!   

Abby gifted Tyler a new watch on their wedding day. It matched perfectly with his tailored navy blue suit.

First look. These two are at a different level of adorable! 

Because Tyler + Abby opted for a first look, we had PLENTY of time for portraits. We walked a little deeper into the woods and found this gem of a spot. <3 

Twirling perfection!

Father-daughter first looks are slowly becoming one of my favorite moments on a wedding day. Abby has an incredible relationship with her dad. <3

All. The. Tears.

For anyone who may be concerned about a first look taking away from the moment the groom sees his bride down the aisle for the first time....Tyler's reaction says it all. <3 

Worship. Because Jesus is at the center of it all. 

Officially official!

Intro + Dances

The most amazing toasts were given that night. So much joy + celebration. 

They left that night with full hearts knowing they surrounded themselves with the best people celebrating one of the best days of their lives.
