So first of all, welcome to my new blog!

Ok, short and sweet. Now on to the good stuff.

I had the pleasure of working with Lauren and Jason Kube at their March 7, 2009 wedding out at Sand Key, Clearwater Beach, Fl. Lauren is actually a friend of 2 of my past brides, Heather Johnson Brooks and Ashley Pietri Baker. It’s so awesome when I have referrals – I know I’m going to click with everyone and it makes it that much more fun to shoot!

Their wedding was at the beautiful Clearwater Beach Marriott Suites Sand Key. This place was absolutely amazing, and I don’t think we could have asked for nicer weather. Our room was right on the water – and nothing beats waking up in the morning and opening the doors to the fresh gulf air. So wonderful!

Lauren’s details were amazing. She wore a Jessica McClintock dress that I loved so much! Its was simple and elegant and fit her style so well. I also loved how she pulled together a mix of teal and bright pink dresses. Very colorful and fun!

This is Erin, her maid of honor and high school friend, pointing out the ceremony site.

Their ceremony was right on the beach at Sand Key Park.

My favorite part of beach weddings is being able to shoot the emotion and reaction of the ceremony. Lauren’s face was just priceless!

And their bridal party? Forget it. They were so much fun to work with!

And what’s a wedding without some gorgeous pictures of the bride and groom? I couldn’t keep these 2 away from each other! Not that I should need to… :)

Their “Getaway Car” was a new Saturn Sky. Have you seen these little Roadsters? They’re so cute!

Eric Harding from Grant Hemond Mobile Disc Jockeys gave everyone some great music to dance to back at the hotel reception!

The reception was outstanding – Lauren and Jason did the cutest slideshow of them (I barely recognized some of Jason’s pictures!) and Lauren’s dad was just precious during their father-daughter dance. He was so emotional and I just love seeing that come through in pictures.

We ended our night with some super cute shots of them rolling around on the staircase and making funny faces at each other, which is always my favorite way to end the night!

What’s a good wedding without a good honeymoon? Lauren and Jason spent their honeymoon at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa. I’m so jealous :)
