Photographing Lauren and Tyler’s Sarasota wedding was amazing. Though the day started off as a very wet, rainy day, the Powel Crosley Estate proved to be the perfect setting for this romantic, vintage style wedding.
I knew when we photographed their Tampa engagement session that this couple was going to be all too much fun to get behind my lens! So I was thrilled to get to do it again at their wedding. There were so many fabulous picture opportunities at Powel Crosley; it is a wedding photographer’s dream (and I think the couple was quite happy too!) :).
I have to admit, I was bit nervous when I saw the weather that morning; especially knowing how Lauren had her heart set on having the wedding outside in the Powel Crosley‘s waterside courtyard. But the rain did not stop this incredible wedding day. Lauren was stunning! Tyler getting ready…love the cufflinks! The colors that the couple chose were so vibrant and elegant. Tyler and Lauren chose to have a “First Look”, opting to see each other in private before the ceremony. I LOVE this for so many reasons. It gives the bride and groom the chance to have an extremely special and intimate moment, sharing their love and emotions without anyone else around. It also gives the photographers the chance to create some magic with that intimacy. The bride and groom in The Ship Room of Powel Crosley: The cake was stunning and delicious and the decor was so divine!
As Lauren and Tyler were announced for the first time as husband and wife, they entered the reception to the Florida State war chant, with arms of the guests striking through the air. When the couple looked at me, I jokingly said, “I QUIT” (I bleed orange and blue, ya’ know!!) ha! I will wrap this up with one of my favorite images of the evening. So happy for you both, and so thrilled to be able to capture your wedding day for you, Lauren and Tyler. Have a blast on your honeymoon.
