Vanessa & Kevin | Wedding – Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Ive been working diligently to get this fabulous wedding up on the blog, I just couldn’t let them go unposted! I mean seriously, blue suede Wedding shoes!? (well not really, but they felt like it!)

The only way I could ever start this post is by telling the world how much I adore Vanessa and Kevin. Since they live in Palm Beach which is a 5 hour drive from Tampa, the last time we saw each other was back in July so I was SO excited to see them again! They were completely in the moment and remained laid back throughout the course of their rainy wedding day. I always seem to be blessed with fabulous and laid back clients who are absolutely beautiful from the inside out and for that I am extremely grateful. Okay, enough rambling…on to the images…

The afternoon of December 5th, 2009, Nicholas and I checked out of our hotel and it began POURING down rain on our way to the Pelican Grand in Ft. Lauderdale. You can imagine our delight as we walked into Vanessa’s room and the sun started pushing its way through the clouds to give Vanessa and Kevin just enough time to have their ceremony without a drop of rain. The day started with hair and make-up and me attempting to contain my squeals of delight over Vanessa’s fabulousness:

The rain decided it was okay to show itself again, luckily we were moving fast enough to get finished with the wedding party and family photos. As we were walking back, I saw Kevin’s dear father holding the umbrella over her – it pulled at my heart then and it pulls at it even more now. Maybe Im just a sap. : )

Squeezing in some Bridal Portraits after the cermony, I could have taken portraits of her all day long. Who wouldn’t want to? That sweet smile you’re seeing begins on the inside.

You are a devastatingly beautiful woman, Vanessa.

I was so impressed during a late night text session with Vanessa, she told me that she did everything. All of these little details, the programs, the centerpieces-everything. She’s definitely a girl after my own crafty little heart. Their reception was GORGEOUS!

I have to say that the staff at the Pelican Grand were so accommodating. They let us have free reign of the hotel and made sure we were taken care of. It wasnt even a question that we would take them up on their offer to shoot in the ice cream parlor! Hot meet cold.

Vanessa and Kevin choreographed their first dance. All I can say is salsa + first dance + adorable couple = giddy photographer having trouble keeping the camera to her eye.
