Please enjoy the images then below read a little about their wedding day story.

Brian and I were all smiles as we pulled up to the lovely Tradewinds Island Grand Resort.  We knew that we were working with a great team of vendors and most importantly a wonderful couple, in part because we had the honor of photographing her sister’s wedding too!  Katie and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready with the capable aid of the Destiny & Light Hair and Makeup Group.  We made certain to photograph her wedding day details as well as the cheerful chaos of the getting ready process.  When it was time to get dressed, we gave the ladies their privacy and went to visit the gentlemen to repeat the process for them.  Admittedly there is less details to capture for the gentlemen but plenty of happy chaos none the less.  We focus to keep things as casual as possible to keep tension to a minimum as far as photography goes.  We make sure to photograph the important parts of the day all the while helping people relax and focus on the joy of the day.  Then we were back with the ladies for formal portraits of the beautiful bride.  Then it was time for the ceremony and the heart of the big day.

The ceremony was held on a beach side deck with the ocean as a backdrop.  The bright Florida sun lit the scene as a lovely seaside breeze kept the guest comfortable.  Vows were exchanged and the newlyweds were greeted by elated guests.  Then it was go time for Brian and I as we started with formal family portraits.  Afterward we took the bridal party to the beach for some fun and photography.  We finished off with a casual walk around the sprawling grounds of the Tradewinds with Katie and Stephen.  Then it was time for the fun to begin.

Adam of Grant Hemond and Associates got the party going with introductions and fun music. The staff of the Tradewinds made certain that all the guests were well cared for as they partied the night away.  It was all topped off with a grand sparkler exit as friends and family wished the couple a very happily ever after.  Brian and I were delighted to be a small part of this day and we wish Katie and Stephen all the best!
