Wedding Cake Wednesday | Jacksonville, Florida | Wedding Photographer

Jacksonville Wedding

I had the opportunity to attend and photograph a wedding in Jacksonville, Florida this past April.  How beautiful, yet simple is this wedding cake? The cake topper was such an elegant touch to this shabby chic affair.  Congrats again you two lovebirds!  Your wedding was a blast.

Woman Crush Wednesday | Wedding Day Fashion Inspiration | Orlando Wedding Photography

On your wedding day you are supposed to look your best, better than you ever have before.  Choosing the right dress and accessories, as well as the wedding party’s, can help accentuate your look.  A extremely dreamy gown or Bond-like suit will make you look fabulous as you exchange your vows.

This Bride chose a gown that was form fitting.  Small train with simple veil.  She added to her ensemble a pair of silver Michael Kors pumps, and made sure her outfit was complete with her “Something Blue” garter.

Her bridesmaids all wore different colored gowns with a lace overlay that complimented them all wonderfully.

Whatever you decide for your attire, make sure it is what you want, what you feel beautiful or handsome in and that you can ROCK for the rest of the day!

Florida Botanical Gardens | Sara Beth and Chris | Largo Engagement Photographer

I cannot wait to capture these two this October at the Ocala Jockey Club as they exchange vows, and ride in on a HORSE!  What?!  Sara Beth found us through Wedding Wire and somehow we immediately connected.  We discussed the plan for their big day and she booked Semm-Faber Photography shortly after speaking with me.  At the end of last year I had the opportunity to meet her and Chris face to face for their engagement session at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo, Florida. Gorgeous place by the way!

I really only have one, well maybe two words for this couple, Freaking Ah-Maz-ING!!!!  I love them and well I am pretty sure they love me.  We had a blast walking around laughing and joking all while painting their story.  This October is going to be great!  A horse (or more) a barn, fields of green, a gorgeous Bride and super funny Groom. I just might pee my pants.  Ok not really, geesh, calm down!

Krispy Kreme Wedding Cake | Wedding Cake Wednesday | Orlando Wedding Photographer

What better way to celebrate your love of Krispy Kreme doughnuts than to make your wedding cake out of them!  This out of town couple had a gorgeous destination wedding on the East Coast of Florida, Melbourne Beach.  The families rented a small block of vacation homes which had an adjoining courtyard.  We highlighted the backyard reception photos last week.

Both the Bride and Groom LOVE Krispy Kreme  doughnuts and where they are from the delectable doughnut company does not have a storefront.  They decided to buy quite a few dozen and make their cake out of it.  Complete with blush pink roses and babies breath. And man I will tell you it was delicious!

Remember, its YOUR day!  Make it special and All About You!

Wedding Favor Friday | Honey | Clearwater Beach Wedding Photographer

Show your guest “How Sweet it Is” by sending them off with Honey!

I had thought that this would be an ending trend over the last few years but I’ve seen it more and more just in the last few months at weddings.  One of my couples were originally from Pennsylvania and wanted to give their guests some Orange Blossom Honey to incorporate their move to the Sunshine State.


Being asked a hundred times, “What should we do as favors for our guests?” It brought me to this post.  No you do not have to give your guest honey or a candy buffet.  But what I do suggest it giving them something they will use, and that is usually something edible.  You do not want your hard earned money going to waste in sometimes curio cabinet or God forbid their next yard sale.  Edible favors are always FAVORED!  Pun VERY MUCH intended.

There have been so many different takes on the edible favor its Cray Cray, from honey to candy buffets EVEN a S’mores Bar, YES PLEASE!


How creative will you be with your favors?
