This Grand Plaza Hotel, St. Petersburg Beach Wedding is still one of my favorite galleries! Denise and Charlie tied the knot on a VERY BRIGHT and oh so beautiful October day on St. Petersburg Beach at the Grand Plaza Hotel. Their wedding day was planned perfectly down to every little detail. So many amazing elements set their beach wedding apart from the many other Grand Plaza Hotel weddings we’ve had the pleasure of shooting in the past. Each one of our clients has their own flares and details that set them apart and it was such a joy to capture Denise and Charlie’s special day.
Denise and Charlie met while studying at school in the Health Sciences field and shared a strong connection over their common interests, one of those being wine. Our engagement session even started out at one of their favorite wine bars in Baldwin Park, FL. Looking through this gorgeous St. Petersburg beach wedding gallery you’ll notice in the reception that they spent a great amount of time on the details. Not only did they bring in a salsa and latin dance teacher for the cocktail hour, they had plenty of wine, and a casino theme added to the night. Just in case the wine didn’t give guests that extra kick to start dancing, they could always rely on the amazing lesson given during the cocktail hour!
One of my favorite parts of the entire day was how freaking gorgeous the newlywed couple photos turned out both on the beach and during their first touch moment up on the Grand Plaza Spinner’s restaurant balcony. The bright Florida sun definitely didn’t get in the way of us capturing their intimate moments on the beach right after exchanging their touching vows. A beautiful day from start to finish, Charlie and Denise danced well into their reception night and enjoyed the company of their closest friends and family. Enjoy their wedding gallery below!
