Wedding at Sheraton Sand Key Resort, Clearwater

I had a real pleasure of photographing the wedding of this beautiful, sweet couple, long time Canadians,  now new Floridians, Kristina and Issam. They now live in Clearwater and enjoy walks, beach, and watching stars at night from their beach blanket, a complete opposite from the big cities they were accustomed to live in.

They had a their wedding at Sharaton Sand Key resort on Clearwater Beach.  Now, because rain was quite persistent each and every day weeks preceding the wedding, I  was keeping my fingers crossed and hoping there will be no rain on the wedding day.... I tell you what, my fingers hurt, but rain had to wait and while it was very windy and cloudy, Kristina and Issam feared nothing! They said i Do's, they did the Kiss, and on they went to enjoy the evening with the friends and family.

Kristina and Issam both are originally from Montreal, and they both enjoy cooking meals together, so food is a big part of their live. They have definitely accommodated their guest  with a great food and a great cake. Kristina is of Lithuania decent, so she incorporated a traditional Lithuanian Raguolis cake for her guests to enjoy. This cake traveled all the way from Chicago!

I want to wish both of them a very happy and long life together. Thank you for trusting me to document your special day, it was truly an honor!

Sarasota Outdoor Wedding

Elizabeth and Mark are big sport fanatics, they climb... yes, they climb mountains! There is no mountain high enough that can't take their love to the highest level. Set up at the private location with a gorgeous water view, this ceremony was beautiful and romantic. The boat ride that took newlyweds out on the see was really a apecial addition to this great wedding. Many happy years together and may you both continue your mountaineering adventures for a long long time!
