Hannah and Alex traveled all the way from Illinois for their destination wedding on St. Pete Beach at the Grand Plaza. Have you ever been surrounded by so much love and grace that it made you smile just for witnessing it? That was this wedding!! The bride and groom along with about 100 of the most amazing friends and family had a day that won’t soon be forgotten . Together they all celebrated the once in a lifetime love of Hannah and Alex.
Hannah was elegant and happy, so beautiful and full of joy. Seeing Alex look at her and her laughing up to him is to see true love, unscripted and genuine. Together they are free spirited, light hearted and so sweet.
The details of their wedding day were soft and pretty with touches of pink and gold. The beach theme was beautifully added with starfish, corals and a gorgeous view of the ocean from the reception.
The wedding took place at St. John Vianney Catholic Church where a full mass was observed as part of the couples wedding ceremony. The sun streamed through stained glass and with heartfelt vows the couple said “I do”.
We headed straight to the beach for photos of the bridal party before the reception began. Everyone piled onto a party bus filled with music, champagne and one heck of a party. Celebration mode was in full effect!
The reception was a blast with dancing, drinks and a late night pizza delivery. You know it’s a great reception when more food gets ordered to keep the party going!! This crowd was amazing. Everyone was so fun and full of life. A few short hours later and the evening came to a close with a beautiful sparkler exit.
I can’t say enough nice things about Hannah and Alex. To be part of their day and trusted with some of the most important moments of their lives is an incredible gift. I am so honored that they chose me as their wedding photographer!
Wishing them both a lifetime of love and happiness!!
