If you’ve ever flown on Southwest Airlines, you know about their open seat policy. You don’t have an assigned seat, you board and see what’s available. Well, Gina and Steve found themselves next to one another on a flight home from Las Vegas and spent the entire flight home getting to know one another. They exchanged information and went on a date later that week. As they say, the rest is history. They live together in Chicago with their adorable Pomeranian, Nacho, but planned their destination wedding at the Don CeSar Hotel in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. With the help of Jessica of Parties Ala Carte, they hosted an unforgettable evening for their family and friends at the Don CeSar Hotel. They started with a beach front ceremony where they shared their love story and exchanged vows, followed by a beautiful meal service and a night of celebration! As you browse the highlights from their wedding, you’ll see the smiles and feel the energy of this day shared by the couple, their family and friends. Gina + Steve were so excited for the photography portion of their wedding and really gave us a lot of creative freedom and trust. This is part of what makes. Combined with communication about their preferences, this is what makes for a really great working relationship with our couples. They shared so much enthusiasm, were so kind, sweet and so wonderful to work with! It was a perfect day and we were happy to be part of it. We documented this wedding along side the wonderful Jon Noeth Video team and were happy to see the Bay Kings Band provide music!
