It was a gorgeous sunny day on April 8th when AnnMarie and Steve said "I do" in an intimate beach wedding in front of family and friends after being together for the past 10 years. The two incorporated family into each part of their day, with AnnMarie's two bridesmaids being Steve's daughters, and Steve's two groomsmen were AnnMarie's sons. The Tropical Breeze Resort was truly a Florida Paradise with flamingo walls and beautiful palm trees - the ladies at Parties A'La Carte outdid themselves by creating a private beach oasis amidst the buildings!
They were married on the beach in Siesta Key, with white sandy beaches as far as the eye could see and crystal clear blue water and were lead down the aisle by their children, each receiving a double kiss as a gesture of love in front of the altar. They sealed their marriage with a sand ceremony and then had all of their guests join them in tossing shells of good wishes into the sea!
After the shell toss, we took family portraits on the beach and then bride and groom portraits in the surrounding neighborhood on our way back to the resort, and man, did those two look incredible! and that bouquet!!
Once guests walked back to the resort they were greet by delicious food, market lights, and tables surrounding a gorgeous pool with a floating floral display. The sun was setting during the best man speech and when the party started it went on all night long! The only thing that could make anyone pause in dancing was the Taco Truck that showed up at the end of the night - even the couple's pooch ("Baby") came out of the house for that! YUM! I'm really digging the trend of ending the night with food trucks.
AnnMarie and Steve, thank you for having us capture your incredible day! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
