Floridian Manor Estate Wedding | Sara & Austin

December 6th, 2017

Even though I was friends with Sara & Austin on Facebook, you learn things about couples when you shoot their wedding.  Little things like she stalked him, I’ll leave out the details but it’s not that bad (maybe), he gave in and here we are.  If I say that she’s his ying to his yang […]

 

Even though I was friends with Sara & Austin on Facebook, you learn things about couples when you shoot their wedding.  Little things like she stalked him, I’ll leave out the details but it’s not that bad (maybe), he gave in and here we are.  If I say that she’s his ying to his yang and all that mushy stuff, I’d sound cliche’ but it really is true.  I’ve never seen someone smile so big when he sees his wife, he absolutely completes her and now I’m sounding extremely corny lol

Let’s move on to their Floridian Manor Estate wedding, shall we?  This place was amazing!  40 sprawling acres in Osteen, that is tucked away of the beaten path and when we pulled in, all we could say was “OMG a picture there and there and there”, it was a tad overwhelming in a great way.  Sara got ready in the main house while Austin was tucked away in the front of the property in the “Carriage & Buggy Repair” house.  Seriously though?!  It was really cool!  Floridian Manor Estate is gorgeous a gorgeous property, with every details is thought of and it really gives a sense of homeiness when you’re there.

Huge thank you to every single vendor!!  Even though Sara & Austin did most of the decor, without these folks, the day wouldn’t of happened like this.

Funny story behind this image.  Before coming to the ceremony site, Sara was to be driven around the property and then make a grand entrance.  Driving a little slow, as they pulled up, Sara heard her song on that she was to walk down the aisle to and started freaking out.  So when she finally got out of the car, she literally ran to where she was to start walking down the aisle.  Emily, the coordinator and I were cracking up laughing.  Good thing she had boots on and not heels!

Normally I’m not all for the Pinterest shots.  They normally come back a little unrealistic but I will have to say that Austin nailed the look so it makes it a little perfect!

Hyatt Key West wedding | Sara & Jeff

July 12th, 2017

Last weekend was a quick 26 hour trip to Key West for Sara & Jeff’s wedding.  They both love the Keys and fell in love with the Hyatt Key West, which ironically I had already shot there about 2 1/2 years ago so it was nice to head back down to some familiar ground. Sara […]

 

Last weekend was a quick 26 hour trip to Key West for Sara & Jeff’s wedding.  They both love the Keys and fell in love with the Hyatt Key West, which ironically I had already shot there about 2 1/2 years ago so it was nice to head back down to some familiar ground.

Sara didn’t miss a details of her wedding.  She did all the florals herself and with the help of Nika from Soiree Key West, everything fell into place.   It rained, well torrential downpour, about 1/2 hour before we were supposed to head out for formals but just like Florida, the skies brightened up as we were headed out and not a drop of rain the rest of the afternoon.

Huge thanks to all the vendors involved!  It couldn’t of all come together without you guys!
Venue:  Hyatt Centric Key West
Coordinator:  Soiree Key West
DJ:  DJ Gunz – Cutting Edge DJ
Hair/Makeup:  Bella Luxe Kiar & Makeup of the Florida Keys

I’m normally not all for DIY because 99% of the time, time gets away from you and either things don’t get done or they just don’t come out the way you want them too but Sara?  She knocked her flowers out of the park!

Can you spot her hidden Mickey’s?  She’s a HUGE Disney fan

All the girls had matching Columbia shirts with their monograms on the back.  They corresponded to the colors of their bridesmaid dresses

Jeff and all of the groomsmen got cufflinks representing things they love to do.  Fishing is Jeff’s so the reel was a perfect fit.

Jeff had a bottle of Eagle Rare whiskey, 101 proof and that’s where he lost me lol

He did good with this one.  Sara’s mom explained that the center stone is one that has now been passed down to her so it has more meaning then just a diamond necklace

Sara wanted to make sure that he and Jeff got a little one on one time before the start of everything so a first look was in order.

Before we set out to do formals, it absolutely poured!  What we didn’t know was that it left us an amazing rainbow right at their first kiss as husband and wife!

The one thing that Sara said to me before the wedding was that the pictures were one of the most important parts of her day.  She made sure to consider a lot of time for formals.  Once their first look was done, we all climbed into 2 golf carts and hit the roads of Key West.  We had over an hour to hit all the spots that Sara & Jeff wanted!

We originally had in the time line that we would head out about 8:20ish to grab the sunset at the end of Hyatt’s dock.  Around 8, I looked out, saw the clouds and sun rays, look at the DJ & coordinator (thank you Niza & Matt!) and asked if we could have an extra 20 minutes and then we’d skip the sunset shots at 8:20.  So glad we did!

Since they both fish, the table markers were types of fish; tarpon, redfish, snook, etc.  Loved that!

So Nick & Katie were trying to figure out their entrance to the reception.  They came up with swapping clothes.  I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard!
