Don Cesar Wedding St. Petersburg Beach, FL| Kira and Jon December | 20 | 2011

I don’t think I will ever forget Kira and Jon’s Don Cesar Wedding. The way Kira appreciated and savored every moment, every transition, every step throughout the entire day was unusual to witness. Some weddings seem to just fly by and are over before you know it. Kira was ‘in it” every minute, all day. Despite the wrong shirt being delivered (twice!) Jon was never without a smile all day.  A few of my favorite images are below. Special thanks Weddings by Georgia who designed, planned and orchestrated a perfect day with class and elegance. Hair and makeup by Julissa with Beauty Brought Out, Florals by Redman Steel that just filled the huge Don Cesar grand ballroom with an incredible fragrance. DJ Josh Walther with Inspire entertainment, Draping by IM events, Linens by Connie Duglin, video by Artistic Media Productions. Courtney Blount and the entire Don Cesar Staff including the pastry chef who designed a stunning cake. Also Zekeshem Parsons for shooting with me. Please enjoy the slide show also, all images can be seen here, the password is the Bride’s maiden name.

Sandpearl Resort Wedding Clearwater Beach | Luana and Chad November | 30 | 2011

Luana and Chad’s Sandpearl Resort Wedding was picture perfect in every way. The one thing the images can’t show, were some of the most heartfelt vows I have ever heard from a bride. Not only the words but the way they were spoken was a testament to the great person Chad is. It is always humbling to be selected to document such an important day and it was an honor to be there.  Enjoy the images and slide show below.  This amazing day was designed and  coordinated to perfection by Sandy Rule of Sandy Rule Events with special thanks to the staff at the Sandpearl resort .   Florals by Botanica International Designs. Cake by Cakes byNomeda Dina on hair and makeup from Michele Renee, Officiant Rev. Tome Greene, incredible invitations and programs from Not from a box, second shooter Cara DeHart, and I was blown away by the shocking chameleon vocals of  Jonathan Cortez .  All images can be seen and ordered here. The password is the brides maiden last name all lowercase.
