Alyssa and Hunter were so amazing to work with on their wedding day. Choosing to have their special day at the beautiful and amazing Powel Crosley Estate which is nestled right in Sarasota and sits on the water. Their ceremony was so beautiful set in front of the pavilion with the oak trees creating a canopy over head with the late afternoon sunlight coming through right above the couple as they said their vows to each other. After the ceremony we were able to get so many great pictures with family, wedding party and bride and groom all over the property.
The bride and groom entered their party by descending the beautiful staircase of the Powel Crosley onto the dance floor to share their first dance as husband and wife. The sun set beautifully behind them, across the water, as they danced with each other and then Alyssa with her father and Hunter with his mother. Such a beautiful scene with the lights draped above them and the glow of the sun setting behind them.
The dinner tables were set up in the main room of the house, with candles and beautiful center pieces and flowers, it made for a cozy, romantic dinner ambiance. They served family style meals, of shrimp, chicken, rice, veggies and more… which I thought was a wonderful way for their guests to enjoy a meal together.
While the guests enjoyed their dinner, the best man, maid of honor and the father of the bride all gave wonderful speeches, then the dancing started, the cake was cut and the bride and groom along with their family and closest friends danced the night away under the stars!
Congratulations Alyssa and Hunter!!
