Classic Sarasota Wedding from Pezz Photo

I have the best job in the world. I spend my days dancing with flower girls, catching bouquets, tearing up with the Mother of the Groom, and smiling with the most amazing couples. Oh, and admiring the fabulous work of amazing vendors, like photographer Pezz Photo, along the way. Weddings like this one make my job not only easy, but unbelievably cool.

From the stunning bride… I envisioned my wedding being romantic, classic, vintage-inspired and whimsical, with a touch of quirkiness. I love the color mustard, I feel it embodies those characteristics so I looked for inspiration on Etsy and Pinterest. We found wooden signs to point the way and to hang on the back of our chairs. Pat has been obsessed with Superman since he was a kid, so the groomsman and fathers wore Superman socks (complete with attached capes). One of our wedding favors were sunglasses (it was an outdoor wedding) and in a funny twist, the guests popped out the lenses during the reception so we ended up with a dance floor filled with Clark Kent look-a-likes! All of our food was vegan– even the cake– and we added a late night snack of PB & J paninis (our initials) for another personal touch. We also displayed the wedding photos of our parents & grandparents along with a framed thank you letter to our parents. I walked down the aisle to the same song my sister used at her wedding. We found that no matter how many decisions we tried to make before hand the wedding planning process was still chaotic and unpredictable at the end including drastically cooler temperatures and high winds from approaching Hurricane Sandy. Table linens were tied town, the cocktail hour moved indoors and my veil flew into my sisters face throughout the ceremony. Those “issues” became some of our favorite memories. We kept smiles on our faces and had the most wonderful time with our friends and family.

Sarasota Wedding from Lexia Frank Photography

They write songs about all white weddings and with good reason…they’re stunning. A layered approach to pretty neutrals is all at once timeless and taking a page out of the modern book. It’s a duality, if you will, that works each and every time; especially with vendors like NK Productions  and Lexia Frank Photography on the job. They take stunning details and perfectly plan them and capture images as light filled and pretty as they come. See all that beauty together in one spot right here.

From the Bride…We were first introduced by a mutual friend at the gym, but didn’t reconnect until several months later after finding each other online. We dated for five years before mike finally got down on one knee on Christmas Eve during a walk down a beautiful street with homes decorated for the holiday. We knew we wanted to get married at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota immediately since we had visited several times in the past and loved it. Our amazing wedding coordinator, Nicole Kaney, helped us pull everything together so we could relax and enjoy the process. As for the decorative elements of the wedding, we both prefer things that are simple and streamlined but elegant. We wanted to be sure that everything was timeless, so that we’d never look at pictures and wonder what we were thinking. We chose a neutral palate of ivory and black with touches of red. Flowers by Fudgie created stunning table arrangements for us using a variety of cream colored flowers, mercury glass, and plenty of candlelight. In the end, we got the timeless elegant wedding we wanted while keeping the focus on our love and commitment. It was truly the best night of our lives!

Sarasota Wedding from Justin Demutiis

The BAD news: Labor Day weekend has officially drawn to a close. The GOOD news: this Sarasota wedding is more than enough to put the pep back in your pretty little step. Because when two photographers say “I do” with The Anti Bride and SRQtees by their side, the result is amazing. I’m talking an absolute overhaul of gorgeousness brought to life behind the lens of Justin Demutiis. And you know what, loves? We didn’t even scratch the surface. See it all right over here.

From Justin DemutiisI’m often asked if its nerve racking to photograph another photographers wedding. But the truth is, I find it energizing. In this case, both the bride and the groom are photographers and they could not have made my job any easier! Maybe all their experience shooting seriously inspired them, because I loved their design and detail choices! Of course you can never go wrong at the Powel Crosley Estate, but the florals, cakes, and vintage furniture truly added to their day. It was an absolute honor working with Dan and Vicki.
