Melany and Bryce live in Richmond, Va where Bryce is in the Air Force. I’m a sucker for military families because I know the sacrifices we all have made! Growing up, my parents were in the Coast Guard and so we moved quite a bit. So with Melany’s family here in Florida, they wanted to come here to tie the knot.
Melany and Bryce planned an intimate beach wedding with just around 40 of their closest friends and family. When I heard they were planning to say “I do” on Anna Maria Island, I jumped at the thought! You never realize what paradise is in your own backyard!
The two of them got ready at an AirBnB right on the water with seriously beautiful decor. I mean, that getting ready room is to die for! If you are getting married at a venue with limited space for getting ready, I would totally recommend getting an AirBnB. One of my favorite parts was watching Melany do Bryce’s hair, blindfolded in a kitty eye mask. Seriously one of the most darling things I’ve ever witnessed.
After our many preparations, we headed to Lido Key for their ceremony. Lido Key really feels like untouched land. A piece of a story from a romantic novel. It was the perfect backdrop for their vows.
The most important part of the day for the two of them was celebrating with the ones they love, so we quickly made our way back to the AirBnB for a few last images before saying our goodbyes. Melany and Bryce, We loved being a part of your day and hope you will come back to visit soon! <3
