The Vinoy is the wedding venue of my dreams! I love the iconic pink exterior, the luxurious ballroom, and the lush gardens around the landscape. It literally has everything you could want for epic wedding portraits – within walking distance to a marina, gorgeous mossy oaks, a stunning pergola with cascading bougainvillea – the list just goes on.
And on top of that, being able to work with one of my absolute favorite wedding planners as my bride – just a match made in heaven. Cori Anne and Hank celebrated their dream wedding day in downtown St. Pete with their adorable husky boy Diesel and their closest family and friends in a way that I cannot describe as anything less than perfection. Cori Anne’s pink and white butterfly garden theme was executed beautifully from her blooming floral arch all the way down to her multiple shades of pink elegant long stemmed candles surrounding her reception hall and sweetheart table.
And like I mentioned – Cori Anne is not just a gorgeous bride, she’s also a kickass wedding planner with her full-service planning and wedding beauty biz at Corbeauties. Like – can this woman be more talented? She did her OWN bridal makeup on her wedding day and SLAYED.
I am so glad to relive this day over and over with these photos. It was an amazing day and every single guest left with a smile on their face. What a blessing to be a part of it! Even the ice cream man couldn’t resist Cori Anne’s charm – as soon as he saw her swishing that gorgeous dress over his way, he handed over a sweet treat without hesitation!
