David and Vanessa’s wedding had all of the elements that we love: a warm-hearted, fun-loving couple, beautiful details and a fantastic wedding location. David and Vanessa brought us all the way out to Punta Gorda, Florida [it’s on the Gulf Coast] to join the party, and from the second we arrived everything was a blast. Tanya and I drove up to the hotel the night before the wedding to find the guests celebrating on the Wyvern rooftop with a pre-wedding toast. In the morning we joined Vanessa at the Bisous Salon and shortly after hair and makeup were underway, the annual parade came down the street like Vanessa’s personal cheering squad. Vanessa was a glowing bride – she was just so happy she made everyone else around her share the emotion.
After their church ceremony we drove to the reception where our jaws dropped. The reception was held at a private residence which sits on the waterfront of Port Charlotte, FL. Not only is the house stunning, they were able to convert the side yard into a huge tented dance floor.
One of the biggest testimonies to how big the hearts of this couple are is the amazing group of people who came together to celebrate them. One of Vanessa’s bridesmaids was Veronica, whose wedding we shot with her husband Brian in the Bahamas. It was great to catch up with them at the rooftop after-party which was held at the Wyvern Hotel in Punta Gorda. All in all, an amazing time.
