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
