Stephanie and Al would describe their perfect day as sitting outside near the water, talking about life. It’s actually how Al proposed. Sitting on a bench looking out towards the water, Stephanie and Al couldn’t help but think how amazing it would be to raise their family in a neighborhood like this one. It would happen that months later, they bought a house two doors down from the park.
The first time I met Stephanie and Al, I could feel a sense of family. They were welcoming, encouraging, and trusted everything I envisioned. Al is a jokester, and I sometimes couldn’t tell if he was joking or not, but Stephanie always had this reassuring smile looking back at me, and then instantaneously smiled back at him.
On their wedding day it was no different. You know, the smiling, the laughing, entrusting me with everything. As a creative, it is heartwarming to feel your clients full trust and on a rainy day like last weekend, I am so glad they did.
Resorting to plan B, the Resort at Longboat Key ensured the couple, along with their friends and family, had a dry space to say I do. Even though it was under a covered patio, it was still just as gorgeous with the green golf course in the background and soft flowers around a lightly draped linen arbor. I must say, I enjoy their romantic shots immensely. We got creative and used tea lights, feathers, and we even used surrounding foliage to bring texture and color into their images. The results were amazing. I mean, look at those smiles!
Stephanie and Al, it was such a joy to work with you and your family. I wish you continued happiness for all of time!
