Andrea & Josh’s Tavern on the Bay Wedding last weekend definitely kept us on our toes! The tropical storm coming from the east was inevitable! Stopping and starting, such a tease! Andrea and her bridesmaids started their day at the Hilton Garden Inn. Her bright blue Badgley Mischka shoes stole my heart and I had shoe envy all day! Josh’s gift to Andrea was sooooo adorable, a message in a bottle?! I don’t know if any other groom can top that with a sweet message hand written inside! As we watched the radar and tried our best to not look out the windows, the rain cleared! Andrea put on her stunning lace gown by Jim Couture and we headed downstairs. We were able to capture a few bridal portraits on the docks outside the Hilton and then ran back inside! Rain will not stop us from creating beautiful imagery though. Luckily Andrea and her ladies were all gorgeous!
We headed to the Beach Club, opened the doors, and the rain stopped! Teresa and her amazing team at the beach club setup the outdoor ceremony just in case! The inside was stylishly decorated by Intrigue Design & Decor and you could smell the cupcakes from a mile away by Cakes by Casey! YUM! The rain hit again and moved us all inside, thank goodness for the top notch team at the Beach Club! With only a few minutes of light we ran outside for Andrea and Josh’s love session and then met the hilariously inappropriate wedding party outside! haha I LOVE these people, I may have made some new Bff’s! Their quick witted dirty sense of humor was right up my alley and made photographing them in my galoshes hysterical! Thank goodness for having my favorite people with me! My second photographer Jennifer Smutek and the best Videographer around Zach Ruszala with Red 5 Recording definitely make weddings fun and inspiring!
