Melissa & Chris’ Wedding at Lake Park in Lutz, FL

The Lord provided magnificent autumn weather today, as Melissa and Chris spoke vows of love before family and friends. Miraculously, the weather turned from stormy and grey to bright, breezy and sunny just as the bride arrived in her stretched limousine.

The venue was Lake Park, a vast area conveniently nested among residential & commercial neighborhoods in Lutz, FL.

Joy and William’s Wedding at the Don Cesar Resort in Downtown St Petersburg, FL

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.

Blessed Outing at the Showcase of Citrus in Clermont, FL

Today, the Lord led us to a place that’s been on our radar for quite a while. For months, since moving to Brooksville, we’ve driven passed the Showcase of Citrus in Clermont, FL on our way to Walt Disney world which we are blessed to call our mission field.

The citrus oasis is located about halfway to Disney, roughly 30-45 minute drive from the farm, and today when she woke up from her nap, little Faith had to go potty just as we were driving by the Showcase of Citrus. Without another logical place to stop nearby, stopping was a no brainer.

We used this opportunity to share the gospel and minister to those God put us in contact with, as well as pick a 1/4 bushel of lemons of all sizes. Of course, we snapped a few photos… Enjoy a virtual visit!

Heather & Jason’s Wedding Day, Rosemary Beach, FL

Since getting started back in 1985 I have been blessed to shoot more beach weddings than I can count. Somehow, earlier today I was blown away with the most spectacular beach I’ve seen in over a decade…

Paradise Found?

Rosemary Beach is a neo-traditional town located on northwest Florida’s gulf coast, between Panama City and Destin, at the eastern end of Scenic Route 30A.  Easily accessible by air or by car, the town is a 30-minute drive from the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport and a one-hour drive from the Fort Walton Beach Okaloosa Airport.

The Rosemary Beach Land Company and President Patrick Bienvenue had a vision they wanted to share with the world.  In 1995, that vision became a reality and Rosemary Beach was born.  Rosemary Beach Land Company’s development plan is founded in the principles of New Urbanism and Traditional Neighborhood Development.  Inspired by other classic beach towns, the 107-acre, gulf-front town of Rosemary Beach was designed to bring back the notions of community, neighborhood and convenience.

In other words, this slice of heaven on earth offers residents the opportunity to live and work in paradise.

In their search for paradise, people often travel to the far corners of the earth, only to come up empty-handed.  In reality, paradise is a lot closer than most people think.  Long stretches of pristine beaches made up of the brightest of white sands.  Refreshing breezes blowing off the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  The peace and tranquility of gently lapping surf, singing gulls and sandpipers.  These are things that have been quietly awaiting discovery in a section of Florida’s panhandle.  These are the ingredients that make up the town Rosemary Beach–paradise found.

Residents of Rosemary Beach are lucky to not only live and work here, but also to have the opportunity to play here.  When work is finished and the rest of the errands can wait, Rosemary Beach is the perfect location for a vacation.  Mild year-round temperatures, yet still a change of season; spectacular beaches free from crowds; the natural beauty of a beach-side destination located on a designated scenic road; aesthetically-pleasing architecture and award-winning, expertly-designed layout; convenient and quaint town center, amenities such as tennis courts, pools, dune walkovers to the beach and lots of green areas in which to relax; these are the qualities of the new paradise of Rosemary Beach.
