Guests Traveled Far & Wide to See the Beautiful Bride! {Wedding-Ft. Lauderdale, FL}

What a beautiful waterfront wedding!  The bride and groom traveled from Boston down to sunny South Florida for their special day.  Guests traveled from as far as Hawaii (the bride's home state) and California for the joyous occasion!  The weather was perfect and a few friends of the bride and groom joked that they looked like a bridal version of Ken and Barbie....I'd have to say I definitely agree that they make a gorgeous couple!  Congratulations to you, Mr. and Mrs. Brady! 



I absolutely LOVED all of her girlfriend's dresses...I teased that we could have had a photoshoot for Nordstom's summer collection that afternoon considering the stunning styles and colors the girls chose!

I found this piece of slate at Crate & Barrel and thought it would be perfect for "special messages" during events and shoots!  I think it turned out nicely and can serve as a centerpiece for THANK YOU cards from the happy couple!

And the award goes to... {Wedding-Deerfield Beach, FL}

I would like to start off by saying "Thank You" to the beautiful bride, Bianca.  I have been fortunate enough to have only worked with extremely pleasant clients since I started my business, however, I will say that Bianca was by far one of the most down to earth and calm brides I have encountered.  She truly gives off such an amazing energy.  Perhaps the reason why she so clearly stood out in my mind as the recipient of the "calm bride award" is due to the circumstances surrounding her day.  By circumstances, I am referring to the fact that she was planning to have a beautiful beach ceremony on a day when there were literally hurricane like conditions.  The forecast the evening before called for 80% chance of rain, and when I say it rained, it POURED.  Gusts of wind combined with torrential downpours forced the ceremony indoors at her reception venue, Oceans 234, increasing her budget and casting, what many would say, a dark cloud over her special day.  Bianca did not allow the rain to damper her spirit and she was GLOWING as you can see in the photos below!  Congratulations to the beautiful bride and "the one her soul loves"...may their happiness forever radiate as strongly as on their wedding day! 

PS: I forgot to mention that Bianca made her own wedding cake (which was very yummy, I might add) and that the top layer "slid" while being transported to the venue...she didn't even flinch and, it all worked out wonderfully! 

Such a handsome little ring bearer!

So happy as husband and wife!

 A beautiful moment shared between Mother & Daughter.  I am pretty certain there wasn't a dry eye in the place when she dedicated a very special song to her mommy!

 Their two beautiful children!

Too much dancing led to a "blow out" of his shoe...a little tape and he was back on his feet!

 And they lived Happily Ever After...
