Tina + Tommy { married on the beach! }

I :heart: Destination Weddings!

Tina and Tommy were married on the beach of Anna Maria Island along the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.  It was a very hot, very humid day, but omigoodness, was it beautiful!!  It was an intimate ceremony and reception, with only their closest family and friends in attendance. The ceremony was coordinated and performed by Sand Petal Weddings, and the reception was held at the beautiful Sun House.  The couple, bridal party, families, and I all stayed at the Tradewinds Resort near Bradenton Beach, which is where Tina and her maid of honor, Rachel got ready…

Tina’s ring is incredibly beautiful – an heirloom topaz

Rachel!  She’s one of my very best friends from Minnesota. It was so wonderful to spend the day with her family, and document this memorable event for them.  Love you Rach!

Tina looked absolutely beautiful as she waited for Tommy out on the pier.

Her face when I looked past her shoulder and saw that Tommy was there ~ I cry every time I look at this series!

Eee!  How cute is he!!

Favorite!  Favorite favorite favorite!!

He gave her an Anna Maria Island bracelet she’d been eyeing up – good man!

Time for some fun pictures  🙂  Saucy, Tina, saucy!!!!

Yummy yummy beach light!

The ceremony was held right on the beach at sunset.  It was perfect!  Tina’s dad walked her down the sandy aisle through tall grass ~
