Felicia & her {untraditional} bridesmaid session

On your wedding day, you always (or at least hopefully) get photos of you and your girls.  Getting ready, final prep photos and then formals.

On your wedding day, you always (or at least hopefully) get photos of you and your girls.  Getting ready, final prep photos and then formals.

About two months ago, I had this wild idea about doing something a little more nontraditional with a bride and her girls.  In came Felicia.  She’s already one of my brides, with her wedding being next May, so I shot her a message and ran my idea by her.  Instantly I got a F**K YEAH!  We started throwing pins back and forth, she’s message me with things she was getting or thinking of and all of this came into play.  A few location changes (thanks Hurricane Irma) and we were set.  Downtown Clearwater it was and we were on our way.

At first everything went according to plan.  And then it started thundering, then the distant lightning started, the winds picked up and then it started pouring!  Thankfully we were close to the Clearwater Pass Bridge so we got underneath, diverted the original plan for the cupcakes and did it there.  The one thing about Felicia and her girls?  It was pouring and I mean pouring and what did they say?  Hell with it!  Let’s still shoot!  The shoot that we had been planning for 2 months wasn’t even close to what we got but we had a blast, we got soaked and the girls took some shots!!

All in all….success!!!  Now, more of my brides need to kick in on this!  *hint*hint*

Kapok Tree Wedding – Trula & Damir

When Trula booked their wedding with me at the Kapok Tree Special Events Center, little did I know that I was going to know so many people at the wedding.  The one thing that I didn’t think of was Damir’s last name, kind of went right over my head but then it hit me the night of their wedding…Bosnian.  If you’ve never been to a Bosnian wedding, they know how to party!  From the moment that Cory opened up the dance floor until the very last song, the dance floor was packed!  Everyone was out there!

We all got a little nervous right after Trula finished getting dressed because we could hear the thunder rolling.  Mother Nature timed it perfectly and rained during their short ceremony so by the time we got done with family formals inside, other than being a little damp, no rain for their formals.  She didn’t skimp on the humidity but Trula & Damir were troopers!

It turned out to be an amazing time and thanks to all the vendors that made their day perfect!

DJ:  Cory Baron from Grant Hemond & Associates
Cake:  Chantilly Cakes
Florist:  Two Birds Events

In the final questionnaire, Trula said that the ceremony was less than 10 minutes.  I usually let that go by the wayside and still schedule about 30 minutes for ceremony time but no, she wasn’t lying lol It was seriously 10 minutes.
Do you?  Yes.
Do you?  Yes.
Kiss your bride.

A friend of Trula & Damir’s went and got Bailey so we could do photos of them between ceremony and reception.  At first Bailey was just happy to see everyone and then she got into the swing of things
