This Florida wedding has all of the elements for a perfect day: a gorgeous venue, personal touches (the Bride made the Groom’s baseball jersey from the Minor Leagues into a guest book!) and a dream team including Justin DeMutiis Photography, Stonehouse Events and Voila Cinematic. Add to that details like the Bride’s Valentino shoes, the Groom’s custom cuff-links, and you’ve got a stunning day. See it all here.

From Justin DeMutiis Photography… When Scott proposed to Chelsea, he planned the perfect evening with flowers, candles and a steak dinner delivered to their private hotel room. It was Chelsea’s birthday and Scott gave her a birthday present she would never forget, an engagement ring! Chelsea said yes and planning the perfect wedding day began!
The Davis Island Garden Club in Tampa, Florida was the perfect setting to create an intimate and welcoming space for Chelsea and Scott’s family and friends! The ceremony was adorned with rose petals, candles and flowers to create the perfect backdrop for Chelsea and Scott to share the wedding vows that would make them husband and wife. The magic continued as guests made their way to cocktail hour enjoying a full bar, especially the bride and groom’s signature drink, the Orange Crush and hors d’eouvres. The reception room was warm and inviting with soft pink and blush hues and lots of candlelight. It was breathtaking as the bride and groom made their way to the dance floor for their first dance, “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran. Chelsea had a special surprise for Scott that night as she had his baseball Jersey made for all of the guests to sign along with his bat and baseballs used when he played for the minor leagues! It was an evening full of laughter and joy as everyone celebrated the happy couple. As Chelsea and Scott made their way through the sparklers, they drove away in a Golf Cart decorated by the bride’s sister and brother in law, a true tradition on Davis Island! It was a night they would both never forget!

I’ll forever be enchanted by the coast; just a brief sight of the sea makes my heart happy. I wasn’t sure what could make an already stunning view better… but then Jacqui Cole shared these pics from her shoot with Oh Hello Events and here we go! Entranced with these two gorgeous gowns and romantic hair and makeup by Salon Inga, I’ll be spending my Monday daydreaming away right this way.

From Jacqui Cole… Fellow LBB member Salon Inga and myself are thrilled to share this inspiration bridal shoot with you!
This organic, coastal inspired bridal portrait session was an opportunity for our team to revel in beautiful details that adorn a modern bride. The soft hues of the Floridian waters and the perfect morning breeze created the ideal backdrop. We selected two gowns by Hayley Paige and Christos to show versatility of a classic waterside setting.
For the makeup we chose a classic look that can suit any bride and added a pop more of color on the lips to fit the vintage/exotic look of the set-up and location. Salon Inga created hairstyles that walked the line of effortless and a little undone yet still would still match the formality of a wedding. Each look compliments the dress in different ways – no matter the personality of the bride.
Oh Deery Floral really wanted to create something loose with a lot of movement – something to mimic the movement of the ocean waves. We chose light pink astilbe, light green hellebore, purple lilac, light pink ranunculus and a moody dark purple ranunculus, paired with white hybrid ornithogalum, and white clematis. The rich berry and coral florals provided an element of vibrancy and depth against the tranquil blue and aqua water. Lastly, a long piece of champagne silk ribbon was tied around the bouquet which happily blew in the wind throughout the whole shoot.
To ground the setting, we sourced a vintage sofa and rose armchair that lent themselves to relaxed and blissful poses.
