Brittany and Sam...it's all about the details

We'd better check with the blogging authorities to see if there's a limit to how many images we can post from one wedding. With this one it will certainly be tough to limit!

We were so excited to have the opportunity to work with Brittany and Sam at their wedding this past weekend at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes. We first met Brittany a couple years ago at Solutions Bridal, where she works as their marketing gal. I met Sam shortly thereafter at a vendor party and they are such a fantastic couple. We met in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, last October for their engagement session and had a great time together. After months of planning and waiting, the big day finally arrived.

The crew included the fine folks from Greenery Productions, Mark and the gang from Pro One Video, tasty treats from our favorite, Bake Me A Cake, and the uber talented Lisa and Terri from E-events. They always amaze. Of course John and his staff at The Ritz always lend their special touches that give any event a little extra flair. Simone was on hand for make-up and countless others were involved too.



Brittany was dazzling in her Ramona Keveza


So much so that her brother-in-law had to poke his head out and see what all the fuss was about!


Sam and his men looked pretty stinkin' sharp too!

It was an absolutely prefect day for an outdoor event. You gotta love Florida in February!


As they exited the ceremony, emotions let go.

The night wore on and the evening remained just as beautiful.


And then things moved inside to the Tuscany Room for the after-party to conclude the night.


Shhh...


For the next few days they'll be enjoying their time in Rome with some pretty exciting day trips planned throughout the fabulous country of Italy.

Congratulations, Brittany and Sam. Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your amazing day. We wish you all the best as you start this exciting new chapter of your life.
