Kayla and Kenny chose to get married at Phillippi Estate Park in Sarasota. It was my first visit to Phillippi Estate Park as a wedding photographer, it's a stylish venue that allowed me to bring the best of each moment.
One of my favorite moments of the day was when I was photographing Kayla getting ready at Edson Keith Mansion. I captured Kayla as she had her hair and makeup done. It was a perfect afternoon to photograph Kenny getting ready with his friends for the wedding.
Kayla and Kenny cemented their union in a very lovely ceremony at Phillippi Estate Park grounds just outside the mansion. My wife added the touch of romance for the ceremony with the sounds of the harp. I couldn't ask for a better job than being a Tampa Bay area wedding photographer and ceremonies like this one remind me why I do what I do.
After the ceremony the wedding party enjoyed a lovely reception at Edson Keith Mansion. The venue served drinks and everyone had an incredible time. I began searching for moments that would help to tell the story of the day.
Spring weddings let me get the best of each moment. It was a mainly cloudy day, making the light very soft, which is a godsend for a photographer. There was some rain later in the evening, which it means good luck!
Kayla and Kenny decided to have the speeches before the meal, so everybody sat down after the reception and awaited the speakers. You hear so many speeches doing this job, but they are always different. The only left to do was to get everyone on the dance floor and rock out to the tunes coming from the DJ!
It was a long time in the planning but Kayla and Kenny pulled off an incredible wedding and I hope they have a happy life together. Check out some photos and a video courtesy of Rod Baker Video.
