Brittany & Chris | Fred Howard Park Wedding

February 21st, 2017

Brittany & Chris had their wedding on top of the sand dunes at Fred Howard Park.  The week started out with a high of 63, we were all a little nervous but come the wedding day, it was 73 and not a cloud in the sky. With their closest friends and family, the tears came […]

 

Brittany & Chris had their wedding on top of the sand dunes at Fred Howard Park.  The week started out with a high of 63, we were all a little nervous but come the wedding day, it was 73 and not a cloud in the sky.

With their closest friends and family, the tears came and watching Chris look at Brittany, the smile that he puts on her face?  I knew it was going to be a great day!

Brittany has the type of relationship with her stepdad, like I have with mine.  He’s been a huge part of her life so she wanted to make sure she did a first look with him.
Needless to say, things got a little emotional…but a good emotional.

Then it was time for the first look with her dad.  Cue the tears again 🙂

Cody, Brittany’s stepdad made this arch and it couldn’t of been more perfect sitting on top of the sand dunes at Fred Howard Park.

Apparently I’m kicking off this year with ring bearers that just don’t want to cooperate (lol)

This is how he made it down the aisle…but he made it!

See right to the left of Brittany’s head?  That’s the other flower girl.  So it’s not just the ring bearers

Chris is a huge football fan so incorporating this into their formals was a perfect, subtle touch!

Off to Capt. Jack’s in Tarpon Springs for the reception.  Brittany isn’t an “over the top” type person so just the little details throughout the restaurant were perfect.

I hadn’t shot at the Wishing Well Barn yet so when Kary told me that’s where they were getting married, of course I Googled it.  It’s a gorgeous barn venue nestled out in Plant City.  The open air barn, with the lighting makes everything just right.  Michelle and the whole staff are amazing to work with and made Kary & Justin’s day out there absolutely perfect!

After 10+ years together, Kary & Justin were tying the knot!  Kary made sure that everything was perfect.  I had already shot a wedding where Justin was a groomsman (Kary was there as a guest) so I knew that their wedding day wasn’t going to disappoint.  From a ton of laughs and old school hiphop during prep, tears and laughter during the ceremony, to jell-o shots flying and dancing at the reception…everyone had an absolute blast!

A huge thank you to all the vendors involved and made the day run smoothly!!

Florals: The Bride’s Bouquet

Can we talk about their “guest bench”?!  What a great idea because honestly, have you looked at your guest book since you’ve been married?

I usually don’t post speech photos but when Justin’s brother started getting teary eyed and then Justin started getting teary eyed, oh my heart 🙂

When your couple tells you you’re doing a jell-o shot, you do one and it becomes the selfie!
Thank you to the whole Downes/Gentry family and friends for welcoming me and making it such an amazing day!
