Congratulations Amanda & Caton!!
On May 9th, I had the honor of handling Amanda and Caton's elegant wedding at the Don Cesar in St. Pete Beach. The weather turned out amazing and they were able to have their evening ceremony outside. Amanda looked beautiful in her Vera Wang gown that seemed like it was made just for her. Her hair and makeup were done by Julissa Mercado at Beauty Brought Out.
Their guests were able to watch the beautiful sunset from the North Terrace patio while Mello Vibes played the steel drums. Amanda's colors were orange and white so even the sunset matched the theme!
Amanda & Caton had a wonderful team of vendors to make their day extra special. I really enjoyed working with all of them! DJ RJ Vida from Advanced Entertainment had the crowd dancing all night long with great music and lights. Jason Angelini,was there to photograph the special occasion and he took some amazing shots (as always!). The delicious cake was made by Chocolate Pi. The flowers by Dana Dineen were stunning. The couple planned the wedding from New York but everything really came together beautifully!
It was great working with the Don Cesar staff again. They really know how to make everyone feel special - even the vendors! The food was delicious and the service was top notch.
Some other great details from Amanda & Caton's wedding were the personalized items that Amanda's two aunts, Lisa and Andrea, worked hard to create. They made the menu cards, favor boxes, place cards, napkin rings and etched glass candle holders which truly made the room come alive! Andrea is a graphic designer and Lisa has an Etsy store called Abbey & Izzie Designs. You can see some of their awesome work in the pictures below.
It truly was a fabulous event and I am so glad I was able to be part of it!
Congratulations Amanda & Caton! I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Italy!
Here are some of the pictures I snapped. (Don't forget to look on Jason's Blog for the professional shots!)
