Denise & Bill’s Surprise Siesta Key Wedding / Sunset Beach Resort

When my friend Priscilla, the amazing planner behind Your Inspired Events told me she had a surprise wedding for me to shoot I was equal parts excited and nervous! I’ve shot a few surprise proposals before which involved me hiding in the bushes with a long lens until the question is popped, but a surprise wedding? How in the world would we pull that off? Somehow we did (with a lot of planning and carefully not using the words bride & groom all morning!) and it was a beauty. Guests arrived to a gorgeous backyard “anniversary party” with farm tables & other furniture from The Reserve Vintage Rentals covered in elegant & rustic decor, then the bride disappeared to put on her dress & as the live musician serenaded guests sitting on hay bales, she was escorted down the aisle to roaring applause by her very proud grandson. It was a pretty exciting moment and my knees might have been knocking a little! This party was the perfect balance of casual & elegant, with loving touches by the couple everywhere you look. So many amazing details, here are just a few! Bee Ridge Florist; Bows by Kiero; Bradenton wedding venue; DIY wedding details; Floridian wedding photography; Fresh creative wedding; Jam All Day; Kelly Anne Makeup;
