This week’s wedding inspiration we like to call the “cake topper to your wedding gown,” the veil! Besides being a bridal icon – and an amazingly gorgeous bridal accessory -the wedding veil has many symbolic interpretations and uses around the world and in different religions. For example, wedding veils were once donned as protection from evil spirits or used to prevent the bride and groom from seeing each other until the deal was sealed in an arranged marriage. Times have changed, but the wedding veil remains a popular part of the bridal ensemble.While some brides chose to forego a veil,  (which is absolutely fine, it’s your preference! Not everyone throws the bouquet, or garter, or smears wedding cake on each others faces either..), lots of our brides like to keep the tradition alive and really feel like they transform into a “bride” once they put it on.

Michael and Danielle met through mutual friends in Tampa, Florida while she was home for the summer from the University of Florida. They had instant chemistry and their first conversation consisted of her making fun of him for wearing cowboy boots everywhere (which she secretly liked) even though he was clearly a city boy. Their conversation then drifted towards their similar backgrounds growing up in the church, along with stories about our friends, families, and even their mutual love for dogs. Danielle soon came to the realization that this handsome man had everything that she had been looking for in a guy: A strong love for God, his family, and his friends.   Michael is a Florida State grad- but their school rivalries did not deter this love story.  Their Tampa engagement session was bright, sunny, and full of personality.  On a side note, Danielle is an elementary school teacher, which does not surprise me given her love and zest for life and others.  Michael owns the gym where I work out, South Tampa Fit–   I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get i shape, challenge themselves and elevate their fitness level.  Super excited for their March wedding at The Prairie Glenn Barn in Plant City.

Special thanks to Michele Renee the Studio for Danielle’s fabulous hair and makeup.

We are happy to be sharing this lovely styled wedding from the new, Wyndham Grand on Clearwater beach. The Wyndham Grand is Clearwater beach’s newest, modern, and elegant hotel. It has the largest ballroom on the beach and has a space that allows for views of the gulf with floor to ceiling windows. The Wyndham Grand is perfect for waterfront weddings, destinations, and couples looking for ballroom receptions. Our styled shoot was inspired by old Florida and beautifully assembled by MMD Events and Parties a la Carte.  Our beautiful couple (who are engaged in real life) were such great models and I had the best time capturing them in different areas of the hotel. We even had the most amazing sunset of the beach to end the night!

 

A special thanks to everyone involved in making the shoot so amazing:
