The beautiful, Debbie, stopped by the ADP studio recently for updated Tampa headshots. I loved her choice or wardrobe; fun and flirty and chic and sophisticated- she had the perfect mix! Debbie is an RN and does pharmaceutical sales and also sells Rodan and Fields products. These headsets will be great for her company and show a great representation of her warm and bubbly personality.

We showed some love last weekend to our brides and their amazing bridal bouquets and this week we have to showcase our grooms and their boutonnieres! This small, floral pin adds some great flair to a groom’s suit/jacket. Whether it’s simple and clean, or vibrant and unique, these boutonnieres sure do make a statement. What’s the history of a boutonniere?

“The boutonniere is a French word. Its literal translation in English is buttonhole, referring to times when a boutonniere was a flower just placed in the buttonhole of a man’s suit or tux. Originating in the 1700’s, a boutonniere was meant to ward off disease, evil spirits and bad smells. It was even common at a time for a man to wear a boutonniere every day. Over the years, boutonnieres have been reserved for more formal events such as weddings and proms. Today, the boutonniere is used purely for visual reasons. It is meant to match the ladies corsage, dress or tie together the “look” of a couple. A boutonniere is usually designed to accent the man’s ensemble rather than act as a centerpiece. Most are single flowers with coordinating greenery that serve to enhance the flower.” –Don’s Flowers and Gifts

What a magical day for Joan and Chris at their St. Petersburg, waterfront wedding at The Don CeSar. The two met in college and they are both smart cookies; Chris is a cardiologist and Joan is a pharmacist. They currently live in Gainesville, but dreamed of having a beautiful, beach wedding and chose St. Pete for their location. We were very excited to hear their decision of choosing The Don CeSar for their location; it is a stunning waterfront backdrop for weddings.

First of all, Joan and Chris were both surrounded by a bunch of loved ones for their big day, specially their bridal party of 22 people! With so many close friends, they both knew they needed them all by their sides to take part in the celebration and be the best support team. We started the afternoon with Joan and all of her lovely bridesmaids as they got all glammed up. The girls were so excited to see Joan put on her wedding dress and it was so sweet to see Joan’s mom shed some happy tears watching her little girl become a bride. Joan is one of the sweetest and most genuine brides; she is so appreciative and we loved capturing all of her beauty and happiness.  Being around her truly makes you want to be a better person.  After hanging with the girls, we visited the guys and took some portraits; of course they were cutting up, helping calm Chris’s nerves before the first look.

Joan and Chris were so excited to take part in a first look before their ceremony; a first look serves as a great way to alleviate some nerves and allows the couple to have a special moment alone before the wedding. Joan was an absolutely stunning bride, so Chris’s jaw hit the floor when he turned to see her. The two smiled and giggled and we heard Chris say, “I want to kiss you, but is there some tradition that I can’t?” Luckily we told them there’s no tradition that says you can’t kiss before the ceremony, so the two managed to squeeze in some much wanted smooches.

Their waterfront, beach ceremony was full of their closest friends and family. The two exchanged their vows and became husband and wife, officially. We had the most amazing weather day that day and also were blessed with a gorgeous, Florida sunset. After the ceremony celebration, the party continued at their reception that featured tall, ivory and pink floral centerpieces, a huge sweets table, and the Bay Kings Band that had everyone up and dancing the night away. It was such a romantic and special day; we truly adore Joan and Chris and feel so honored they picked us to capture their memories. We wish them lifetime of love and happiness and are excited to watch them grow as a couple and as a family!

    So happy that you captured the beauty and wonder of the day. Very nice job.

It was so nice catching up with the “R” family; it had been awhile since I had seen them and their beautiful kids have grown like weeds! We lucked out with some amazing weather and sunny skies for their Tampa family portrait session; I love how the sun was piercing through the trees! What a pleasure to capture more memorable portraits for their family.
