When Lizelle reached out to us about their destination wedding in Anna Maria Island we were super stoked! The Anna Maria Island and Bradenton Beach area has amazing sunsets and we loved the opportunity to capture their celebration of love.
The ceremony and reception was organized by Beach Breeze Weddings of Sarasota. The decor was perfect for a sunset beach wedding! Lizelle and Johnny decided for a very intimate ceremony with family and friends. We couldn't have asked for a better weather. After we the ceremony, we took photos with the sunset then everyone continued the celebration at Bridge Street Bistro for an intimate dinner.
Amazing memories for an amazing couple. Thank you Lizelle and Johnny for letting us be a part of your day! Enjoy the slideshow and photos below of their beautiful destination wedding in Anna Maria Island Beach.

Kristen and Jason's wedding at the beautiful boutique wedding venue of Casa Lantana in Brandon, Florida
We drive past Casa Lantana in Brandon almost weekly. See, we live very close by and consider them neighbors, so when Jason and Kristen told us their wedding venue was Casa Lantana we were more than excited! Both the bride and groom got ready at Casa Lantana. The venue is very well designed giving each one an area for themselves to get ready. Casa Lantana in general is the perfect location for a wedding in Florida - and their staff is extremely professional, accommodating, and super friendly! It has different ceremony sites to choose from, making it even easier for couples who are undecided in the type of ceremony they want.
Jason and Kristen wanted a first look and it was magical! When it was time for the ceremony, my wife got everyone in the wedding mood as she played the harp when guests arrived. The ceremony was so beautiful under a big oak tree and the sunset in the background. You could feel the emotion as both Jason and Kristen read their vows. After the ceremony, Kristen entertained the guests inside Casa Lantana as she played the harp while they mingled and got drinks and I spent some time with the couple taking their photos at the venue's beautiful grounds.
The reception followed with lots of dancing, beautiful speeches - including very emotional ones from the bride and groom - and of course, some dancing! The night ended with a sparkler exit as the couple were driven out to their honeymoon destination. Once again, thank you Jason and Kristen for letting us be a part of your day.

Congratulations to Nina and Jimmie who recently celebrated their wedding at the beautiful Lake Ashton Country Club in Lake Wales Florida. The wedding ceremony was set outside in their Reflection Garden with views of the lake and sunset. My wife Kristen welcomed the guests with the romantic sounds of the harp. Everyone was overjoyed during the ceremony as it was filled with emotions! After the ceremony, we set aside some time with the couple to take their photos on the golf course with the lovely sunset as their backdrop. The reception ballroom was completely designed and decorated by Nina's talented mom. It was stunning! The highlight of the night was when Nina and Jimmie surprised everyone with a choreographed dace! The rest of the night was filled with emotional speeches, delicious dinner, and lots of fun dancing.
