Brittany and Josh live in Philadelphia, so we were super excited when we found out they would be down this way on a  wedding planning trip, and that we would finally be able to spend time with them in person! We had met Brittany before when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding we shot in 2013, and after our Skype date with the two of them we couldn’t wait to meet Josh! The four of us spent an afternoon in downtown Clearwater exploring some fun new spots (and almost getting kicked out of a couple ; ) before heading over to our favorite stretch of beach for the last bit of their session. We loved how easy going the two of them were about every thing we asked them to do, and were thankful they were such troopers in the Florida heat! We think it most definitely paid off.

Brittany and Josh, we were so happy to get to spend the afternoon with you guys and can’t wait to see you down here again in December!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

It seemed to all unfold in slow motion. Her walking up behind him, giving his shoulder a gentle tap, and him turning around to see his bride for the first time that day. There in slow motion was a moment in time so quick that a blink would have caused you to miss it. As he turned around, in the split second between feeling her fingers come to rest on his suit jacket and being face to face with his soon to be forever, the joy and love in his eyes said everything any words ever could. Without even laying eyes on her, he was so filled with joy just to know she was there. And it’s no wonder that when their eyes finally came to rest on each other, her’s filled with the happiest of tears. Because his eyes spoke every bit of love and promise that his vows would later that day . . .

Kristin + Ryan are married! They had a picture perfect wedding day that started with the smiliest first look we’ve ever seen and ended with a kiss among sparklers. We loved every bit of this day for so many reasons, from the gorgeous details and flowers which all came together perfectly, to that fact that this bridal party was one of the most fun ones ever, and most importantly because it simply felt like a day of love. Kristin and Ryan just have so much sweetness between them that it was impossible not to feel so very lucky to be the ones to document every heart filling moment.

We loved the soft colors Kristin chose for the wedding’s palette, and how perfectly it all complimented her timeless gown (which she looked STUNNING in). And Ryan (who we are pretty sure could have been a stand in for Don Draper) was looking every bit as handsome in his fitted suit. After their first look at the Vinoy, we all hopped on a trolley and hung out in downtown St. Pete to grab a few portraits before their day continued at the Mirror Lake Lyceum with a sweet ceremony and awesome party of a reception!

Kristin and Ryan, we are so incredibly happy to know you both and to have been a part of your big day. We can’t tell you how much we loved spending your best day ever with you guys, and we hope that as amazing as it was, all the days to come are even better.

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

From the moment we met Sarah & Danny, we knew we wanted to be a part of their love story. Not only did they have a super adorable first meeting (which involves ping pong!), but they are also just such incredibly happy, laid-back people we couldn’t help wanting to spend more time with them. Sarah has the most infectious laugh and amazing smile, and Danny is just the person to bring both of them out of her at a moment’s notice. The two of them were amazing sports about braving the June heat, and we had so much fun exploring a bunch of new nooks and crannies in downtown St. Pete. We definitely have some new favorite spots after this session!

Sarah + Danny, thank you guys for an amazing afternoon! We absolutely meant it when we told you guys how easy you made our jobs, and we can’t WAIT to do it all again in November!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

They stood together with tears in their eyes, each listening to the other make promises their deepest of hearts knew would be kept. Occasionally one of them would laugh, and a tear would stream down a cheek, and some moments there were just too many tears to ignore wiping them away.

But one thing was certain. The tears they shared were the best kind of tears. They were the kind that happen on the happy, once in a lifetime kind of days. The kind that seem to only come when your heart is so full it could burst, and the only thing left to do when there is that much happiness inside you is let a little bit out. And so together, on a stage in front of everyone they cherished, they stood hand in hand and cried the happiest of happy-hearted tears . . . .

Melinda + George are married! They had a beautiful wedding day at the Mirror Lake Lyceum that was full of so many amazing DIY details.  Melinda wore a veil she made herself that included her love of bows and polka dots (which are pretty much our most favorite things as well!) and topped off her look with a handful of perfect Kate Spade accessories. We were absolutely in awe of how polished so many of the details were, especially all of the decor which the two of them did themselves. Every flower arrangement you see at their wedding was a total labor of love, and we adore how it all came out!

After a sweet first look in the balcony of the Lyceum, the two of them were married on the stage below. We couldn’t help but tear up a little as they made their vows to each other through shakey voices and their own tears, and even though we had so, SO many favorite moments from this day, there promises to each other most definitely have to be our most favorite part. It was clear not only because of the love between them, but also because of the sweetness of everyone there to celebrate that love. Their’s is a relationship that is built to last.

Melinda + George, thank you so very much for inviting us to be a part of your best day ever! We had so much fun with you guys, and are so excited to see where this next chapter takes  you!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
