sandbar anna maria island wedding: jennifer + joe

Theirs was a beautiful wedding day. It was a day of celebration and family and dancing and laughter. It was a day of easiness and lightheartedness and sunshine. But most overwhelmingly, it was a day of joy. It was on her face as she walked the corridor towards him, and on his as they got to see each other for the first time that day. It was in his fist pump as he escorted her back up the aisle as his wife, and it was in the eyes of every single person in attendance that afternoon. Theirs was a day of joy, and in a year of days that have been full of so much else, it was oh so heart-filling to stop and feel the warmth of it . . .

Jennifer and Joe are married! They had a beautiful, intimate, sunshiney wedding day on Anna Maria Island at the Sandbar Restaurant last weekend, surrounded by family and friends. Jennifer looked stunning in a gown that would have given even the best of Disney princesses a run for their money (I’m STILL thinking about those sleeves 😉 and Joe was basically the most suave man we’ve ever seen on a beach. After a ceremony on the sand, guests had cocktails in a lounge area decked out with gorge decor by So Staged, and then headed to the light and airy pavilion for dinner and one seriously epic dance party. At the end of the night, the newlyweds were surprised with some pyrotechnics by the oh so amazing Dj Cory Barron, and then ran through a tunnel of sparklers. It was such a sweet, happy, just-plain-good for your soul kind of day, and we just adored being a part of every minute!

Jen + Joe, we had the loveliest time with you both and felt so lucky to spend the day by your sides! We hope you love every one of these as much as we do!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
