Alicia & Jeff’s Wedding – Shades of Green, Disney

‘Look Mommy, it’s a Princess!!!’

This was a common phrase heard on Alicia and Jeff’s Wedding day and those little baby tourists weren’t talking about just any Disney Princess… they were referring to the one and only Wedding Day Princess, Alicia! Adorned with a tiara and Mickey Mouse Bobby Pins, this girl came prepared for her all out Disney Big Day! Flying from all over the US, Pennsylvania, Maryland and all everywhere in between… their family and friends came to watch their loved couple say their ‘I do’s’ in one of the most magical places available… So before the Kiss was even had, the story must be begin with the end … and they all lived ‘Happily Ever After!’

Sit back, Grab your Mouse Ears and Head to Kissimmee… This one takes the cake, the Mickey Mouse Cake of course!

… And just for giggles, a few bloopers of the day:)(PSA- No babies were birthed in the making of this union)

This is No Small Feet! Old Shoe Drive for Dando Amor

I, Danielle, am a hippie, tree-hugging, Jesus-loving, impulsive, creative, individual. I realize this, I do not deny any of these claims. I enjoy getting elbows deep into projects, causes and just good ole dirty work for the greater good! Before having babies, 4 years ago, Missions works was a huge priority on my long term agenda, since the kids I have fallen a couple steps back. My heart has never stopped burning though and I have been earnestly considering ways to allow my giftings on to the missions field once more. I found out about Dando Amor at a Photography workshop a few years ago and my interest was immediately peaked, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that my heart was really heavy to help. The organization is a collection of professional photographers committed to supporting the needy, specifically 2 orphanages in Ecuador and West Africa.

The entire month of March I will be collecting old, unwanted shoes for Dando Amor’s upcoming trips. These shoes can be in any shape, size, or condition. Babies feet all the way to Michael Jordan’s feet are needing shoes to keep their little piggies safe. American’s throw away over 680,000,000 shoes annually, while 1.5 billion people go with out a single pair of shoes to protect their feet from preventable parasitic disease and infection.

I am asking that any and all local business people, churches, little leagues or sports teams, organizations, schools to take up this challenge and make an impact for the greater good. If you would like to participate  let me know and I will send you a flyer like the one below. If I am able to organize and collect the most shoes, for this nationwide drive, I will have a the wonderful opportunity to personally go to Africa in June and deliver these shoes to these orphans in need. Will you help me?

At the end of the month, 3/30/13, we will be collecting one last time and bringing awareness to this huge need by walking one mile barefoot in the One Sole Mile @ the Hamner Tower Field from 10am-12pm. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on that and also participating drop off locations. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and seeing my hearts desire!:)

Stefanie and Sean’s Wedding- Oldsmar Residence

They said ‘I Do’s,’ played a lawn game or two, and when the night grew dark.. the shakers came out with some serious spark.

Stefanie and Sean, You sure know how to throw a bash! Your wedding couldn’t have been more perfectly fit, for the two of you, fun, laid back and lots of laughter! Their aunt and uncle are awesome and hosted the day at their home in Oldsmar, just a hop, skip and jump away from the Waterfront. The Ceremony was intimate and full of love and the Reception was a blast with lots of dancing, cupcakes, and lawn games for the guests to enjoy!

Renee & CJ’s Engagement, St. Petersburg Engagement Photographer

It is always a great business decision to book couples that are A Lot like you (‘you’ being me, of course.) When I say ‘A Lot like you’ I am referring to a stellar personality, good sense of humor, a certain level of humility, killer swagger & sweet natured, cause we all know I am all these things! Hahaha, I kid, but not really though. CJ and Renee have been an absolute Blast since we met! There isn’t a time, in our chats, where I don’t get a chuckle or full-on belly laugh, from some of the stuff that transpires between us all. To top off their just plain ole’ fun’ness, they are equally quite creative and romantic… For goodness sake, CJ surprised Renee with a cross-continental trip for his proposal… at his favorite Steak Restaurant… that is the ‘killer swagger’  I was referring to earlier.

With all that said, we couldn’t be more elated to be apart of your Rad Wedding Creative Team! Its going to be one for the record books, just wait!

Elizabeth & Dylan’s Wedding @ St. Mark’s/The Lange Farm, Dade City

Splenda is an amazing discovery, isn’t it? Its like a trillionth the amount of sweetness in the same packet as plain ole sugar. It takes like 5 sugars to match the same amount of sweet of 1 Splenda packet. Liz is pretty much the Bridal form of Splenda, yup I just made that connection, hahaha. She is everything that sums up excitement and pure, raw, unfaltering wedding day bliss multiplied by 2 million and 3. When you come into her presence her sweetness radiates straight to your heart. Dylan is just as nice, I can’t call him ‘sweet,’ cause that is not a groom friendly adjective, or so I am told. He compliments her in every way and they both have the most humble, kind hearts I’ve ever known. We were seriously the ones that got the most bang for the buck, cause being present for their excitement was a gift in and of itself.

Their BIG DAY started off at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in New Tampa, with the reception following at the gorgeous Lange Farm in Dade City. They had an amazing selection of super radical vendors that made their day just GLORIOUS! Hope you enjoy their day, as much as we did!

And here are few silly blooper/behind the scene’s pics of the day. As we were taking photos of the girls, before the ceremony, it started to sprinkle and limo driver came running with the life saving, wedding redeeming tool of awesomeness, the umbrella. He was most definitely the MVP for the day. Also check out the horse taking a snack break on Liz’s bouquet, and since there was nothing better to do between the ceremony and the reception, the bridal party decided to utilize the available BBall court for a quick pick up game.

Thanks to all the awesome vendors for your hard work:
