What better reason to blog than to post the photos from my big brother’s wedding? Adam called me about 2 weeks before the big day to ask what I was doing on St. Patty’s Day – I told him I had no big plans, and he told me he was getting married and wanted to fly us down to Florida for it. Woah! Being the only one in the family that pried information from Adam prior, I knew wedding bells were gonna ring sometime this year, but it was a big surprise to come so soon. Not that I’m complaining about a spur-of-the-moment getaway to Florida! And away we go…
The ceremony was held out on the 2nd floor balcony at the Postcard Inn at St. Pete’s beach. A very very cool retro-modern hotel.
After the ceremony we had a delicious meal at Cafe Alma – it was a very intimate affair.
Here’s the whole group! (That’s me in the lower-right corner!) Thanks to the waitor at Cafe Alma for snapping these photos for us! Since it was somewhat sunny out, we went to the point where Adam & Amanda had originally planned to have their ceremony to do some photos. Here’s the wedding party:
Everyone was exhausted after a while, so we headed back to the motel to relax. Later that evening, Josiah and I had dinner with the bridal party before they went out for St. Patty’s, and I subtly begged my brother to let me do a day-after photo shoot with the two of them. After lots of poking and prodding he agreed – he and Amanda had to leave the motel early the next day to head back to Alabama, where Adam is stationed for flight school. So the next morning, we met for breakfast and photo time. Here are just a couple shots from the lobby of the Postcard Inn:
We went out to the PCI beach bar for a little local flavor:
One of my favorite shots of the day^
And finally, the beach! The sand in St. Petersburg is so beautifully white, and I had the pleasure of working with a very in-love couple who barely needed any posing for photos.
I’m so happy for my brother & his beautiful wife, and am so honored to have taken their photos! Miss you guys!
