Another simply stunning event at the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach, coordinated by the über talented team of event coordinators at Event Design in Tampa (a HUGE tip of the hat to this always top-notch team). And a tremendous thank you to the rest of the vendors who helped make this event as successful as it was. Natalie + Bertrand, you’re both TOPS in our book. 🙂 Drop below the break for more details from their special day.
Natalie just after prep at her home in Tampa, FL. I saw this small dock just outside their front door on the lake they live on and conceptualized this shot on the way in. So happy with how it turned out. 🙂
Some of Natalie’s beautiful details from her wedding day. The touch of red throughout the day, as well as the photo broach on her bouquet, is her way of incorporating the spirit of her late younger brother. So touching, such an emotional and beautiful day.
Loved capturing these images of Natalie’s prep as she got into her gown. Thank you Julie for your incredible eye and for being there to get all of the other gorgeous angles with me.
Natalie truly rocked these. I mean c’mon… 🙂
A few more from on the dock at the other side of her yard by their lake. It was so warm that day but you’d never know it, Natalie simply glowed.
The beautiful Jrs, flower girl and ring bearer. 🙂
Julie absolutely nailed these portraits of Bertrand. They were such a fun group. Did anyone spot Philip Seymour Hoffman?? 😉
Natalie on her way to the ceremony, getting out of the limo. Stunning frames once again captured by Julie as I was shooting the wedding party coming down the isle inside of the church.
The gorgeous new couple now husband and wife! Love it when the bride literally leaves the ground during their first kiss. 🙂
Natalie had requested that we take a few moments to capture a few frames of the two of them that incorporated the Rolls Royce limo they had hired for their day. I was happy to oblige, loved how they turned out. 🙂 Thanks to the Sandpearl valet crew for working around us for these photos at the front entrance of the hotel.
Then it was time for a few more pics of the wedding party before everyone enjoyed their cocktail hour on the Gulf Lawn outside the Sandpearl Hotel.
Gorgeous bridal party.
Loving friends. 🙂 Great group, just awesome.
A few details inside the Sandpearl Hunter Ballroom before guests arrived. Thank you again to Julie and to Emily for their stunning photos of this ballroom while guests were outside enjoying their cocktails and while I was working with Natalie + Bertrand and their wedding party. 🙂
A few toasts after the grand entrance and then Natalie + Bertrand were literally off and RUNNING back to the beach for more photos before sunset and last light! LOVE these running pics and love their mutual enthusiasm for more photos on their wedding day! 🙂
Getting out to the beach just in the nick of time!
The stunning, loving, passionate couple. I’m in love with these pics from the beach just before sunset. So fun, so soft, so comfortable. Everything I want from a scene and a couple for their bride + groom photos.
Yeah we swooned too when we saw how loving they were with each other…
And then we were off again back to the ballroom!
I’ve said it before but the Father/Daughter dance is one of my favorite moments at a wedding. Probably because I have my own little future-bride on my hands. Gets me every time.
Having a little fun with the cake cutting before we departed for the evening!
Thank you again to Jennifer from Event Design and to all of the talented and wonderful staff at the Sandpearl Resort for making Natalie + Bertrand’s wedding a resounding success!!!
