It was a sunny day in May as all their guests arrived to the beautiful Harborside Chapel. Odie and Caleb’s wedding day went smoothly from start to finish! I love that they chose to share a first look as it made for the sweetest photos of them seeing each other for the first time and made any anxiety disappear! Caleb got to tell her how beautiful she looked while they shared an intimate moment just the two of them. It was an honor to capture!
There was a stunning floral arrangement that was delicately placed on the cross that stood behind our sweet couple as they said their vows. Odie was walked down the aisle by her mother and grandfather while carrying her bouquet where two beautiful charms of her father and grandmother, dangling in remembrance of them and remaining close to her throughout the day. After being announced as husband and wife, they exited the chapel into a sea of bubbles surrounded by their family and friends! At the end of the line awaited a purty white Bentley, their getaway car! Everyone waved as they left the ceremony site and headed to their reception at the Clearwater Crystal Ballroom!
My goodness you guys, their reception was GORGEOUS! There were details on details on details and I was in photographer heaven! I’ll let the images speak for themselves, so you can just scroll down to see! After the most emotional first dances (Odie danced with her mama and her sister, the whole room in tears) Dinner was served! Later into the night, the La Hora Loca began! Spanish for “The Crazy Hour”, non stop dancing where everyone wore flashy boa’s, masks, party hats and passed around glowing lights! Their DJ, Ben (who was also our own wedding DJ and had a doppelganger in the bridal party!) did an amazing job at keeping everyone on the dance floor! It was a blast!! At the end of the night, they exited through a sparkler exit into their happily ever after!!
Mr and Mrs Cote!! Your wedding day was a dream and we are thrilled to have had the privilege of capturing it!! I’m so excited to share some of my favorites!!
Thankful we got to work with so many amazing vendors!
