When Staci and I met for lunch to talk about her wedding, I was over the moon. Not only do I love helping brides plan their wedding with ideas and tips, but it is especially fun when the bride is a close friend. She told me that she and Jason were wanting a tropical setting, not in N. Florida and we talked about some places she loved to visit. Once they decided on having their Lido Key Beach Florida Wedding near Sarasota, FL we got all the details together. Her friend Ashley, who lives there, was the point person for all wedding organizing. From the cake to the flowers, she worked hard to make their wedding perfect.
The Resort at Longboat Key Club is the perfect place for a bride to get ready for her wedding day. The suite was beautiful and there was plenty of room for Staci and a few friends to get ready. Staci’s resort suite overlooked the ocean and had a private balcony with stairs down
Staci and Jason chose the beach at Lido Key Beach, Florida for their intimate wedding. A handful of friends witness their exchanging of vows on a perfect Spring evening. The bride’s best friend, Natalie officiated the ceremony and had each guest read a quote offering the newlyweds love and support on their journey together. The bride wore a vintage ruby engagement ring and Jason added a gorgeous diamond band to the ensemble. Boho chic is the perfect description of the brides dress and vibe of their wedding day. I loved photographing Mr & Mrs Ketterer since I have known Staci (Stawcy, as I call her) for a few years and being their to capture their day was an honor.
Following the ceremony, we dined at Dine Shore in Sarasota and toasted the couple with words of love and lots of laughs. Mr and Mrs Ketterer spent the weekend at The Resort at Longboat Key Club .
