Bre + JR ][ Lido Beach Resort Sarasota Florida Wedding

Bre and JR approached us when a family member of theirs referred us. They are from Indiana, making this a kind of destination wedding, though also a homecoming as it turns out, since JR grew up nearby. Bre started her day out at the penthouse suite on the 14th floor of the beautiful Lido Beach Resort. With gorgeous sliding doors and floor to ceiling windows facing the gulf, you couldn’t get a better view.

Bre, her mother and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready and enjoying mimosas. JR spent some time in the morning longing by the pool, and by the afternoon he and his groomsmen were ready to get the day started. The couple shared an emotional and intimate first look with their bridesmaids and daughter Emma as the time approached for the wedding.

The sky opened up with bright sun as their ceremony commenced, surrounded with friends and family from near and far. This sweet pair celebrated the announcement of husband and wife with a romantic and dramatic kiss.

The reception was a fantastic party with their closest friends and family. The dance floor was barely visible with all the folks celebrating and  enjoying this magical evening. Finally, after plenty of dining, drinking and dancing the night away, it was time to say goodnight. What a wonderful way to begin this new life together!
