Sirata Beach Resort Wedding | Jami & Chris

When Jami first emailed me about their wedding, she was actually referred to me by her mom.  Her mom had worked at the White Chapel in Palm Harbor a few years back and coming from a vendor, that made me feel great!

Jami & Chris wanted a beach wedding and the Sirata Beach Resort was perfect.  Everything was right where they wanted it, guests could stay at the resort and then went from the beach right up to the ballroom.  Jami had an A-list vendor list which made everything move so smoothly.  Pictures were a huge part of Jami’s day so having a first look, we were able to get photos before and after the ceremony, which we ended up getting the most amazing sunset so it definitely didn’t disappoint!

Chris’s mom passed away so everywhere there were memories of her and I knew going into this, that there were going to be some emotional moments and I wasn’t wrong <3

Huge thanks to all the great vendors involved to make their wedding day perfect!

One thing that gets me is when a couple says they don’t want to do a first look because it takes away from the first time seeing.  This proves right here that even though you do a first look, the emotion of seeing your future wife walk down the aisle to you is a totally different feeling and those emotions are still there.

This was a photo I did from their engagement session of Lily.  Since she couldn’t be at the resort, Jami made sure that she implemented her into the wedding somehow

Chris did a first dance with his aunt since she’s a huge part of his life.  At this point, things got a little emotional <3

Chris’s groomsmen had been through it all with him and were there for him when his mom died.  She was just a huge part of their lives as she was Chris’s so when I saw the guys getting emotional during his dance with his aunt, I knew it was something I had to capture.
