We were so happy to be back to the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast to capture Melanie and Lee’s lovely wedding day. The two met in college at FSU while attending the same classes and have been together for over 7 years. Their friends and family have watched their love grow, so it was a special sight to see the two officially tie the knot.
We had beautiful weather for Mel and Lee’s big, which gave us lots of time outside for portraits in the gorgeous Florida sunshine. Melanie and Lee opted in for a first look, not only did this help any pre-wedding jitters, but also gave them some alone time together (and with us) to capture some beautiful portraits. Their personalities definitely pair well with each other, they are both funny, up for anything, and so in love. We could spend a Saturday with them all the time!
Their ceremony under the tress of the B&B was decorated with hanging lanterns and a chandelier, created a romantic atmosphere to say “I do!” The romance continued at their sunset portraits, where we ventured onto the dock and watched a stunning, Florida sunset. At their reception, guests danced the night away to, we must say, one amazing wedding band. It was even more special because Melanie’s uncle was in the band and they made sure to rock out until the end of the night. What more to keep the energy going? A donut station! Topped with coffee cream, nonetheless. Yum!
We ended the night back at our sweet, reception area and captured some nighttime portraits of our bride and groom under the glowing lights. A perfect ending to an incredible day. Congratulations to Mel and Lee, it was a pleasure to capture your sweet memories!
Special thanks to all of the amazing friendors who helped make Melanie and Lee’s wedding day so special:
