Don Cesar Wedding | Jessica and Conor December | 02 | 2010

Jessica and Conor brought all their friends and family to St. Petersburg beach FL,  for their destination wedding at the Don Cesar. After seeing so many colorful NY/New Jersey brides on the bridal television shows it was fun to be around a NY crowd who were warm, sincere, and would do anything for the people they care about.  Courtney and the entire Don Cesar staff were on top of everything as usual. Colors by Linny transformed Jessica from beautiful to stunning with makeup. Frank Lebanno ran the reception with perfect balance of class and fun. MMD Events did a great job with florals and settings and bringing Jessica’s vision to life. Below are a few favorites and the slide show. All images can be viewed and ordered here. The password is the brides maiden name all lowercase.

Palma Ceia Country Club Wedding | Candice and Lewis November | 29 | 2010

Candice and Lewis’s wedding at the Palma Ceia Country Club was one of the larger weddings I have shot this year but a reminder at how close and intimate even a large wedding can feel. I was impressed and honored to be part of a wedding where the supportive energy from friends and family was so unusually strong. Wedding coordinator Gloria Howell as well as Nathan and the entire Palma Ceia Staff were on top of every detail. The flowers by Hassell Florist were perfect and the band “Pocket Change” kept everyone on the dance floor.  Below are a few favorites and a slide show. All images can be viewed and ordered here.

Sandpearl resort wedding | Maria and Luke November | 09 | 2010

Maria and Luke’s wedding at the Sandpearl resort could not have been more picture perfect. Maria and Luke both worked together in the planning process and picked a great location, beautiful details, and selected some of the best vendors in the Tampa Bay area. All the pretty things were really secondary to the warm and caring friends and family who came from California to be there for them.  I am always honored to document such special moments and even more so with when I am around such great people. Enjoy a few of my favorites and the slide show. All images can viewed here or from the link on the slide show. The password is the Bride’s maiden name all lowercase.  Special thanks to Debbie and the Sandpearl resort staff, Cindy Stonehouse of  Stonehouse events,  Concept Bait’s classy and tasteful room, A Piece of Cake, Dillingham String Quartet, JJ Video FilmMichelle Renee hair and makeup and the most impressive wedding band around Ace Factor!
