The weather leading up to Mallory & Jeff’s wedding was worrisome to say the least. Florida was in the path of a Hurricane. Not to be deterred, the couple, their friends & family, and all the vendors marched forward. Happily, we were rewarded with NO rain and lots of wind (to me, that’s a great thing, because…well look at the photos!). The Powel Crosley is one of my absolute favorite wedding venues in Sarasota. Not only is it historic and classically beautiful, but the staff is always awesome and so is Milan Catering (yay for yummy vendor meals!). I can never speak too highly of having a great team on a wedding day, and that was even more true on this day when I had both Michael Bartley and Mike Zawadzki as my associates.
Mallory and Jeff were so laid back and had amazing style. Brides can always count on Eri Vincent to deliver when it comes to hair & makeup. Mallory’s hair was perfect in a messy braid – the wind just made it look even better. The pops of deep red in the flowers and her lips added the perfect amount of drama to a wintery looking day and the neutral tones of the historic Powel Crosley Mansion. Mallory and Jeff knew how to pull off vintage without the slightest hint of cliche. The cherry on top of this gorgeous wedding was DJ, provided by Grant Hemmond, who truly listened to his clients and played the most amazing 80’s and 90’s new wave/dance-pop set throughout the reception. Every time I look at Mallory & Jeff’s gallery all I want is to photograph it again and again! (Crossing my fingers for a vow renewal or anniversary elopement in a decade or two!)
