This was such a beautiful pass-a-grill beach wedding for an amazing couple. Tasha and Charles traveled all the way from Ohio for their destination wedding and the day couldn’t have turned out more perfect. They have a beautiful love story that started with mutual friends, a surprise island proposal and now a perfect destination wedding.
I absolutely love working with couples to help them make their wedding dreams happen from far away. Tasha and I talked and texted to the point we both felt like we knew each other the moment we met face to face.
Tasha got ready at the Grand Plaza St. Pete while Charles was prepping nearby at a close friends home. Tasha had a gorgeous dress and pretty details that complimented her beautiful wedding day style. The ruffles on this dress literally floated across the ground.
The couple chose to forgo the traditional bridal party but were surrounded by amazing friends and family who celebrated the whole day and night.
With a forecast for storms we were so lucky to have gorgeous clouds on the beach and a breeze that kept everyone comfortable on what would normally be pretty hot day. The couple exchanged vows and added sentimental touches with a sand ceremony and blessing stone throw. The beach ball exit was a blast! Even with the wind the guests had great precision (ha!). The best part is the rain didn’t come down until after a pretty sunset ceremony and their romantic portraits!
A reception followed at Silas Dents with an awesome photo booth setup, soft pretty details, first dances and a ton of fun.
Thank you Tasha and Charles for choosing me to photograph your love story. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and be part of this amazing day. Cheers to a lifetime of love and happiness!
