Tampa and St. Pete, Florida, August 21, 2010.

On Saturday, I was absolutely honored to photograph the wedding of the beautiful Mindy and talented Josh. Mindy spent months preparing every detail of her amazingly elegant event, along with the expertise of planner Jackie Ross with Table 6 Productions. The church was amazing, the reception venue was just breathtaking, and the food was unbelievable! Not to mention the gallons of sweet tea before and after the event – I was in heaven! With details like a Starbucks coffee bar, Banana’s Foster, big band entertainment, and a fresh lavender send-off (to a vintage Rolls Royce), the reception was one of the best I’ve attended!

Mindy wore an Anne Barge gown and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Josh, a country singer/songwriter, played a song he wrote just for her during the ceremony. *swoon*

You better believe I’ll have a much longer blog post with a full vendor list in the next few weeks, but I couldn’t resist posting a little recap of the day.

Event Planning: Jackie Ross, Table 6 Productions
Ceremony: Tampa Covenant Church
Reception Venue: St. Pete Museum of Fine Arts

Mindy has the most amazing blue eyes! And her cute tank-top says it all :)

Mindy had a gorgeous bridal party with her, and her mom looked absolutely stunning.

Jackie designed the gorgeous rose-petal aisle runner

Is this a handsome group of guys or what?? (and I love the baseball pose…. haha! Totally his idea, by the way!)

Sweet tea station!!

Mindy and Josh shared their first dance with their friends and family!

And had their own little photobooth! We snuck the first couple photos…

I loved that their mini-cake was a nod to their engagement photos!

The evening wrapped up with a Blushing Bride signature cocktail for the toast!

I can’t wait to share the rest of their amazing event… stay tuned!
