Cross Creek Ranch

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Jessica and Justin, what can I say? I will go back over a year now when they came into my studio to talk photography – still unsure about the location of the wedding and even the exact date for that matter. The story was set. Outgoing smart couple super excited about planning their wedding; searching for the perfect venue and not settling for anything less than exactly what will thrill them and their family and friends on their ‘big Day’. Knowing I was going to be part of this union know matter where or when, I was patient but knew I was in for something new; different. Cross Creek Ranch, sure I had heard some recent buzz about it, no I had never photographed a wedding there before. But that is about to change..

I was in for a rare treat. Being an on the coast Sarasota Photographer, photographing a wedding like this is not a weekly occurrence   Hello Florida countryside meets charming horse stables meets photography eye candy everywhere. Honestly I didn’t know where to start. I was so excited see what we were going to come up with for this amazing couple at this new venue. And it goes a little something like this:

It certainly is isn’t?

Love this touch, the mossy tree heart with inscription. Perfect

What could be more perfect, fluttering clothes pinned photo’s from the couples past: yes I looked at every one of them. Treats for everyone, and propped up on a table supported by vintage Jack Daniel Barrels. Sweet!  No pun intended:)

Love the country inspired vintage theme, from the antiques set about the place right down to the cowboy boots! 

Hello! Rustic Chandelier billowing in the wind, vintage inspired canning jars filled with a mix of wild flowers- grand oak tree adorned with the big A. It couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for a late afternoon ceremony for a couple in love. Even I had to hold back my tears: Really!!

Oh and there were a few surprises as I was walking around the grounds with the wedding party: a tractor. painted orange. placed perfectly in the field. Of Course! 

Jessica and Justin, thank you so very much for finding me and letting me be part of your special day. And thanks for following through with your vision so my camera and I could be there to experience it with you. Well done!  All the happiness to this amazing couple!!

The Founders Club, Sarasota Wedding

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

The Founders Club is the Place to Play! What a stunning venue for a wedding. The sunlight: gorgeous.  The couple: in love. And check out the kids in this family; just adorable! Planning a wedding? Make sure you look at The Founders Club as a possible Venue, it is magical: Click Here for more information on the Founders club.

The Founders Club has pink muhly grass. When in bloom, it looks airy and pink, I would try to plan my wedding here when the grass is in full bloom. It is gorgeous here even when it is not in bloom, but I particularly like this here at the country club. It makes for great shots of the bride and groom as well as the wedding party.

Here is a fun treat for the eyes: I saved it especially for The Founders Club. It seemed fitting. How elegant a border around the couple looks. The two girls are the brides beautiful  twin daughters. 

I never get tired of the old Oak trees that line the Founders Country Club. The hanging Spanish moss gives it an old Florida charm and feel. And looks romantic in the photo’s and the story that they tell. 

Anna Maria

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Ok.  Sarah interviewed me for her wedding nearly a year ago.  She called me, said she wanted to come to my studio and sign the contract.  Basically she knew I was the “the one”.  Holding true to wanting to have a  no frills, no over the top wedding,  Sarah and Tyler married at the rustic Sandbar restaurant on Anna Maria island.  The weather glorious, the bride elegant and vibrant and the couple; willing to pose and do pretty much do anything I threw at them! Got to love that.

Wedding rings are perhaps the most symbolic element in every wedding.  The diamond vault in South Sarasota is a good choice for many local couples when picking out their wedding rings.
