Anna Maria Island, Florida is a true gem of a town just a short drive from Tampa Bay. We absolutely love it… and lucky for us because we keep getting asked to come back and photograph destination weddings there. Matiana and Micheal inquired after seeing our previous Anna Maria Island wedding which was published in Florida Bride Magazine. Who doesn’t love a beach wedding – the romance of warm sand at your feet, salt water smells, and the waves dancing under moonlight. There is just something that calls you to the ocean, and that’s exactly what drew Matiana and Micheal there (well, all of that poetic stuff and its convenient proximity to Disney World!) We all went out the night before the wedding day to get to know each other and take a few warm up photos 🙂 This was a special weekend for us, we were honored to photograph such an intimate and lovely event. Make up by Carrie Collinsworth of KyleLynn Cosmetics, and Christina Mathews of Weddings by Christina officiated as well as made some of the arrangements.
