At the Sirata Beach Resort in St. Petersburg Beach, FL
the place where the rehearsal and wedding took place.
Sweaters on the beach!
What is wrong with this picture?
The first day we were actually at the resort for the wedding was
really cold. Like really cold. But we knew it was warming up.
Emery acted like she had never been on a beach before.
She didn't like the sand in her toes.
Ellie had no problem putting her toes in the sand.
This day we spent exploring the resort grounds, playing in
the sand, going down to the Beachcomber for lunch on the beach,
then coming back for the rehearsal at the resort.
Joelle and Courtney.
Looking perfect in jewel tones.
The kiddos rehearsing walking down the aisle.
Bride and Groom to be.
Loved being a part of Jon and Brinna's special event.
People thought of every detail. Leis worn by the lucky couple.
Ellie's face says it all.
IT WAS FREEZING!
Notice Emery's pants under her dress, she was frozen.
Off to the rehearsal dinner, which fortunately was inside.
We were greeted at Oyster Shuckers with these
cute seating charts. All beach themed.
(we were at the starfish table)
Steve and Kevin styled the rehearsal dinner.
It was perfect!
Live fish and all.
Friday before the wedding we spent the morning on the
beach and in the pool. It was warmer than the day before.
We lucked out and did not need to get our hair and make-up
done like the bridal party, so we partied in the sun.
They did pictures before the wedding,
which really is a time saver.
Everyone looked so sharp.
Perfectly coordinated. I could not have loved her colors more.
My extremely hot date for the evening.
I love being married to this guy.
The cutest flower girls ever.
Entry to the beach aisle.
The whole wedding party.
The wedding was beautiful, with beautiful words spoken.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Bogard.
Enjoying cocktail hour before the reception.
We found our cute sand bucket for our table seating assignment.
Again every detail was so fun and cute.
Jeremy and Courtney win for best entrance dance!
Everyone was so fun coming in and the girls were too precious.
First dance with Jon and Linda.
First dance as husband and wife.
Congrats you two!
Our last day of resort life/beach living.
We checked out of our hotel and then went
to Steve's hotel for a full pool and beach day.
The kids dug and dug.
They tried to empty the ocean one bucket at a time.
Emery still wouldn't put her feet on the sand.
We soaked up every ounce of Vitamin D we could.
We had a fabulous time in Florida for Jon and Brinna's wedding.
We loved being part of their special day.
Jeremy looked handsome in his tux, the girls looks so darling in
their flower girls dresses.
Eme told me "I look pretty, I wear this tomorrow."
The wedding was perfect and every detail thought of.
I loved the wedding colors so much.
We loved hanging out on the beach for a few days,
although it started out pretty cold, it ended so nice.
I married into the best family and now have one more
sister-in-law who I just love.
Congrats you two!
