Kadie & Brian had the most perfect blush colored destination wedding at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota. We’ve been looking forward to shooting their wedding for over a year now and I’m kinda sad to write this post – because then it’s really over. Kadie & Brian are just two of the most genuine and fun people – and it’s so easy to see why they had such a large bridal party and why so many loved ones and friends flew to Sarasota for their big day. You can’t help but just love these two – and within the first five minutes of meeting them last summer us 4 became instant friends. Since then, Kadie and I have kept in touch all year texting one another about seasonal lattes at Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks, and the latest Kate Spade and Lilly sales. :) (cuz that’s what girls do!)
There were so many moments during their day that I loved, but my absolute favorites were definitely their first look – their excitement and love was contagious in that moment, we were smiling behind our cameras the whole time. Then of course – their first dance. Brian sang to her the whole time and it was adorable. Lastly – it was their parent dances – the love between Kadie and her dad tugged at my heart so much. In that moment – I saw Cody and our little Haley in 25 years. Same for Brian dancing with his mom – there was just something so sweet as he twirled around the first woman he ever loved.
We hope you two enjoyed St Lucia – congratulations Starks!!!
