If it had to be said, do allow me to be the one to say it: The Don Cesar Resort in St Petersburg ranks among the most endearing resorts I ever seen, period.
Earlier today I shot a wedding that truly moved me in ways very few wedding can, and have. My expectations were so high, in such an opulent venue I could only imagine the way the night was going to go down – downhill fast made possible by a vast, fully stocked with top brands, wide open bar representing chaos for everyone present.
Nope. Nothing. Not a single misconduct penalty! Except of course for the bride who got lovingly tipsy off a half flute of Champagne after eating next to nothing all day…
A solid brand of Christians put together an amazingly clean wedding where there was in fact, an open bar!
The character of the people present matched by the extraordinary professionalism displayed by the resort staff turned an event headed for disaster, into a truly blessed wedding I thank God almighty for being a part of.
My first photo opp at the Don Cesar was in 2002 if I recall, when I was blown away with the magnitude of the place considering its prime location along the Tampa Bay, overlooking downtown St Petersburg, FL.
