The Vinoy Renaissance resort was the absolute perfect venue for Chelsea and Kent’s wedding in downtown St. Petersburg. I have been anxiously awaiting their day since Chelsea first reached out and told me all the visions she had for her and Kent’s wedding.
In the middle of one of my busiest seasons to date, so much stress, weddings (or two) every weekend, I was reminded why I love photographing weddings: it’s an entire day where I am able to get completely lost in other people. After being so overwhelmed with everything on my “to do list” it was such a gift to be able to spend an entire weekend putting other people first for the best reason ever and be invited into one of the most important days in someone else’s world. Not many things are better than that!
Chelsea was so joyful and excited about every aspect of her best day ever, from the design and decor, to her family and friends who joined in to celebrate their love. It was especially special to watch their friends and family pour so much into the both of them. There’s enough love between that fantastic circle to last a lifetime. One of my personal favorite moments from the day was watching all the nervous jitters and anxious feelings fall right out of Chelsea as she got to see her groom for the first time that day during their first look. Thats how you know you have found your soulmate.
Chelsea and Kent, you two have a love built to last and its been so amazing walking alongside you on this wedding day journey for the last year. Never stop showing the love to each other that I have had the blessing to witness and your life will be as beautiful as your wedding day. I love you both and hope you love your memories as much as I loved saving them.
As a final disclaimer, this post is HUGE. I just had too many favorites!!
