Michael & Nelson | St Pete Women’s Club Wedding

A year ago when I met up with Michael & Nelson about their wedding at St. Pete Women’s Club, they told me they wanted it to be different.  While they still had some of the traditional wedding things, they stepped outside the box when it came to their formals and reception entertainment.

Me:  Well we’ll have X amount of time for prep before we head to the ceremony
Them:  Since we’re getting ready in the same room and all that, we were thinking more of bar hopping in downtown St. Pete for wedding party photos.  Is that okay?
Me: <insert my heart palpitating here>  YES!!!!!

Outside the box.

Michael had already told me that Robert, their DJ had something planned.  He knew it was a show but didn’t have any idea as to what kind of show it was.  He told Robert that there are family members there to keep it clean.  Robert did just that with a killer drag show!  I mean seriously?!  A drag show….at a wedding.  BooYAH!!
