Felicia & Richie | St Pete Grand Plaza Wedding

They say when you meet “the one”, you know that it’s the one.  I think that’s what happened with Felicia and Richie.  I’ve been friends with Felecia on Facebook since she booked their wedding day with me so seeing these two in “action”, you can tell that they honestly love each other.  The joking, laughing, love…you name it, it shows between the two of them.

They decided on the Grand Plaza Hotel on St. Pete Beach for their wedding.  Having a beach wedding in Florida, well you never know what Mother Nature is going to throw your way and she surely did it the morning of the wedding.  Overcast and gloomy, they both were a little nervous when it came to what was going to happen at ceremony time.  Richie even told me that the night before when they were there for rehearsal, they had a gorgeous, bright orange sunset so we all had our fingers crossed.  Richie told me that was the one thing he wanted when it came to their photos.  No pressure…none what’s so ever 🙂  I can control a lot of things during a wedding day but the weather and sunset is one thing I can’t control.

We got through the ceremony with a slight cloud cover.  They headed into the reception for their first dance, dinner and then about 7:50, I looked outside and there it was.  The sunset Felicia & Richie wanted.  I ran over to get them and said “we have to go now”, especially knowing that the colors in our sunsets can change in an instant.  We got out there, set up and BAM!, thank you Mother Nature for your sunset because it did not disappoint.

The dance floor was never empty and it was a blast throughout the whole afternoon!

Thanks to all the vendors that made their day perfect!

I normally don’t share garter photos but it was quite hilarious when Richie went down for the garter and came out with a Corona!
