It was a gorgeous and sunny day in April when we arrived into town for this Florida Themed Tropical Breeze Resort Siesta Key Beach Wedding. AnnMarie and Steve were so incredibly excited to finally say “I do” after 10 years and especially for their intimate micro-wedding at the beach. As the guest list featured family and close friends only, the couple was sure to incorporate their own family into each part of their day. AnnMarie’s two bridesmaids were Steve’s daughters, and Steve’s two groomsmen were AnnMarie’s sons. The Tropical Breeze Resort was truly a Florida Paradise and perfect for a Siesta Key Beach wedding 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 white sandy beaches of Sarasota, with clear blue water as far as the eye could see. Both Steve and Annmarie and were lead down the aisle by their children and each received 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, followed by bride and groom portraits in the surrounding neighborhood on our way back to the resort.
Once guests walked back to the resort they were greeted with the Tropical Breeze Resort wedding experience: delicious food, market lights, and tables surrounding a gorgeous pool with a floating floral display. The sun set during the best man speech and despite the small guest list, the party raged 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!
