We had an ABSOLUTE blast with Kim and Bill at their beach wedding in St. Pete! This couple was bursting with personality and we loved capturing it all! Photographer Michael started the day in Kim’s room photographing all of her details including her beautiful floral arrangements by 2 Birds Events! We love getting preparation photos and Stephanie with Halo Hair Salon did an awesome job on Kim’s hair and makeup! Also, we couldn’t have a beach wedding without Kim’s gorgeous dress from Jon’s Bridal hanging from a palm tree in front of the hotel!
Before Kim got into her dress, we grabbed a few shots of the guys getting ready and then some fun posed portraits outside of the hotel! We loved how much they got into the photos, you could tell they were having tons of fun! They looked so snazzy in their dress clothes and groomswear from Men’s Wearhouse!
As soon as Kim was in her dress her dad made an appearance to put on her necklace and give her some well wishes before the ceremony! We then took the girls outside for some more fun portraits!
Officiated by Tammy Burnett of New Life Assembly, the beautiful ceremony was short and sweet, but filled with many tears! We love the two have for each other, even more though is the family bonds they have together! It is very apparent that these families are meant for each other when the dads from each family walk hand in hand during the recessional!
During the reception, DJ Grimey laid down some tracks that got the whole party dancing! This included an intimate first dance, a lovely mother-son dance, and a fun father-daughter dance to Thriller! After a quick bite to eat, we grabbed some more sunset pics, including one of our personal favorites of Bill sending for HELP! I promise it was their idea, not ours! We then headed back to the reception space to cut some cake provided by Cakes by Carolynn and some more dancing!
Special thanks to Kate with the Grand Plaza Hotel for making sure the day goes by smoothly! We wish Kim and Bill the very best in the coming years and we were so happy to be part of their wedding celebration!!
