When I say Florida wedding, most people immediately think of the beach. But, believe it or not, there are so many stunning options off the beach that make for amazing weddings. We had the honor of photographing the amazing John & KC at one of those locations, the Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast.
These two, well there are no words really I can think of to describe the level of fun this couple brings to the table. I sure hope you enjoy the images just as much as we loved photographing them yesterday. The day started rainy and cloudy, and boy did it finish with a GORGEOUS day.
Situated right on the Manatee River, this bed & breakfast is a historical site dating back to 1913. Now without delving too much into its history, I found it fascinating that it was a kit purchased from Sears, Roebuck and company and was shipped by rail to Tampa, then by barge to the currently location. Fascinating they did that in the early 1900's right? The wonderful old Florida charm with European accents was the perfect location for John & KC to celebrate their love!
The gorgeous ladies prepared at the venue and were an absolute pleasure to work with.
While the guys prepared at the hotel across the river.
With the rain cleared, and the sun shining, the guests began to arrive by boat to the ceremony.
And of course, so did the Groomsmen!
Can I just brag on how fun this bridal party was? Super helpful, fun, and playful the entire day. They had the perfect vibe to keep the celebration rolling!
Reception time!! We had such a great time kicking off the night.
We snuck the couple out to the dock for a brief sunset opportunity
And then right back in to celebrate!
And of course, what night should end without a grand exit! I just love their sparkler exit.
Congratulations you two!
