Kim & Mike: Newlyweds

October 9, 2008

Kim and Mike are such a creative and fun couple, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding. I love the vintage Florida theme (considering that Mike proposed on Anna Maria Island, I’d say it’s pretty appropriate!) and the gorgeous colors they used to carry it throughout the day.

Beatiful flowers by Lee Forrest.

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Garden provided a stunning backdrop for their ceremony and their reception was at Casa Feliz.

The crew from Busy Brides Wedding Services did an amazing job keeping the day flowing smoothly!

Look how cute these two are!

Mmm…. cake! I couldn’t walk near it – it smelled so amazing I just wanted to stick my finger in it! But I behaved, I promise!

Special thanks to my good friend, the talented Suzie Seagraves who second shot for me!

    Great stuff Lori! Not sure if everyone knows but Anna Maria Island is the WEDDING capital of Florida. (At least we have not had anyone else fight us on it, not yet anyways.) Weddings are getting more and more popular so there are alot of services on Anna Maria Island that are supporting weddings. Harrington House for smaller weddings. Island Real Estate has quite a few Vacation Rentals now that can accommodate larger beach weddings with a reception at the house. For more information go to
    We actually just had a beach wedding in one of our vacation rentals and the bride and groom love it!. Great stuff and great pictures!! Are you close to Anna Maria Island so you can handle pictures here also?
