I am sure you remember this beautiful bride from our sunrise session not too long ago. She was nice enough to let me post her pictures before her wedding day because she was certain her future hubby would never stumble across them on the internet! Click here to view Jessica’s bridal portrait session.
The bride wore a dress from Brides by Demetrios. The bridesmaids wore dresses designed by Democracy Clothing.
Jessica and Dee chose to be married on St. Pete Beach at the beautiful Grand Plaza Resort.
This stunning and very delicious cake was designed by Chocolate Specialities by Joe, a local St. Pete Beach vendor.
I LOVE when brides choose flowers to adorn their cake- the beauty and simplicity of it is amazing. I also absolutely love the trend of using the couple’s first letter of their new last name as a cake topper- there is something just so elegant and understated about it.
Keeping up with the theme of beach simplicity, Jessica chose calla lilies for her bouquet. Her florist, Irene from For Better For Less Wedding Flowers, also from the Tampa/ St. Pete area was such a help on the day of the wedding making sure that everything was coordinated the way that it should be.
Jessica’s father could not wait to see his daughter when we got off of the elevator, and still could not take his eyes off her. Here he is stealing a look just before he walked Jessica down the aisle.
They also planned their wedding specifically so that we could get a series of beach sunset photos. Unfortunately the weather was not as cooperative as we hoped, but we still managed to get some amazing shots. Those will come in another blog posting, along with their ceremony and reception photos.
