Last year, Taylor saw Monica’s East Lake High School senior session, so when I put out the call for Senior Experience Model’s, Taylor was quick to jump on it.  With her senior year being so busy (who ever said that your senior year is the slowest and easiest is wrong lol), we were finally able to shoot her session last weekend.  We headed up to Tarpon Springs, found some out of the way places and she nailed her session.

Lindsay & Rob | Countryside Country Club Wedding | Clearwater Wedding Photographer

December 16th, 2014

Countryside Country Club on 12-13-14…the last sequential date like that in, well…a long time.  But that’s when Lindsay and Rob wanted to get married and what a day it was!

Countryside Country Club on 12-13-14…the last sequential date like that in, well…a long time.  But that’s when Lindsay and Rob wanted to get married and what a day it was!

We got there and my first question for my brides is always….are you ready for this?!  Let’s just say I got a “Hell yeah!” from Lindsay followed with….Rob’s mom has been feeding me drinks so I’m ready to go!

Lindsay was my DIY bride.  Her, her mom and her now mother in law made everything for the reception.  They did an amazing job and putting everything into place (Lindsay’s mom was still putting the finishing touches on the reception hall when we got there) and the day went off without a hitch.  What makes getting married at the country club a bit more nostalgic is the fact that Lindsay’s parents got married there well, as Lindsay put it….a loooong time ago lol

Elizabeth from Countryside Country Club was amazing to work with.
DJ Brownie rocked out the reception and did an amazing job!
Publix at Boot Ranch did a great job on the cake.

Lindsay and Rob opted for a first look.  Seriously…please consider it if you’re thinking about it!  Rob was so stunned when he saw how amazing Lindsay looked!

Lindsay and Rob “tied the knot” (haha don’t hold my jokes against me please) but really they did.  They tied a fisherman’s knot during their ceremony.  The easiest but strongest knot there is.

They only practiced it the night before so the thumbs up was totally justified when it Lindsay did it right (well and that she finished her’s before Rob)

The benefits of having two shooters?  While I’m up close at the ceremony, Sharma (my amazing second shooter) was in the balcony getting Rob’s amazing facial expressions when they finished tying the knot

Lindsay’s mom made her bouquet!  She did an AMAZING job and it was gorgeous!

 I’m not going to lie but when a bride has on a wedding information card that she spent over 10,000 hours on Pinterest and Etsy planning her wedding, I get a little freaked out.  Pinterest can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing because you get false expectations for your wedding.  Let me just be the first to say that Lindsay nailed it!!  Everything about her details were all about them!
A flair of nautical but not over the top.  They put so much heart and soul into their wedding and it was perfect!

They had oars for guests to sign instead of a traditional guest book.  Thinking outside the box?  Yes sir!

DJ Brownie NAILED the reception!  There wasn’t a spot on the dance floor all night.  Literally from right after the first dances, up until we left, everyone had a blast!

Those are handcuffs you see on their hands.  Lindsay will soon be a part of the PCSO and well, it was only fitting that they come into the reception handcuffed!

There are times at receptions that I get teary eyed.  Usually it’s the groom/mother dance because one day, that will be me handing off my oldest to his amazing girlfriend.  This time though, it was when Lindsay pulled her grandfather on the dance floor.  Having lost my grandfather almost 2 years ago, I know how much this means to her.  Could be the last dance he does (but let’s hope not) but at least Lindsay got her last dance with him <3

Normally I don’t post cake photos.  I mean you cut the cake, you feed it to each other and that’s that.  Lindsay and Rob cut the cake and put it on the plate.  Lindsay says “Honey, let’s get a picture with the cake.”  Notice how she’s holding his hand?  She had that twinkle in her eye and then…..
