Alexandra & Colin

May is here! Spring is the perfect time for some gorgeous wedding photos... don't you think?

SPOILER ALERT: We love weddings. Like, a lot. It's kind of our "thing"...

And when we photograph a wedding, we're typically there for 8, 9, or even 10 hours.
But sometimes, we're asked to cover just a portion of the day - the really important stuff, like the ceremony and the family portraits... and of course, the romantic couples' shots you've come to know and love from the MSP portfolio.

Alexandra & Colin were married on an April Tuesday at the JW Marriott Marco Island.
You don't need us to tell you how special it was - check it out below!

This is Colin. Dreamy, right? We hung out with him for a few minutes before
the ceremony started, and he was just as nice as he was handsome!


Then it was time to get down to business, and to saying "I Do!"

'Cause when you're in Florida, you wear funky pineapple socks! Right?!

With the family and wedding party portraits behind us, it was then time to say goodbye to the guests of the newlyweds, as we headed out to spend some time on the beach alone with them :)

Alexandra's floral was done by her grandmother -
we can't get enough of personal family touches like that on a wedding day!

Maria & Ben

Last October, the MSP blog featured the engagement shoot of one of the cutest couples in the world: Maria & Ben. We knew after spending time with them that their wedding was going to be one for the books - and we were NOT disappointed! Not only did Maria & Ben kill it with their wedding day style (AND almost every vendor was MSP-recommended!), but their romance had only gotten MORE amazing over time! Check out their special day below!

MSP Travels: Turks & Caicos

The Turks & Caicos Islands are a playground for the rich and famous for a reason! The color of the water, the sand of the pristine beaches, and the friendly and vibrant local culture combine to form the stuff dreams are made of. Celebrities Kate Moss, Matt Damon, Howard Stern, and Bill Gates have vacationed there (to name a few!), while Jerry Seinfeld and Eva Longoria both spent their respective honeymoons on the Islands. Jennifer Garner + Ben Affleck even married there in 2005!

So guess what Matt said when he was asked to travel to T&C to photograph a wedding?

Tawni was ready, and Dennis was standing by to marry the love of his life.
At the last moment, the ceremony was moved indoors to prevent an interruption due to weather - but it was such a small issue, because they were getting MARRIED!!!

Jennifer & Adam: New Years Eve

In celebration of 2018 and to kick off its second month, let's take a peek back at where MSP spent New Years Eve:
Jennifer + Adam's wedding! 

We all grew up with the same fairy tales and certain mouse-sponsored cartoon movies, right? You know the ones... full of fun songs, can't-be-real-handsome princes, and the types of princesses that are just as gorgeous on the inside as they are on the outside. Have you ever wondered who those characters are based on? Enter: Jennifer + Adam. After you see their wedding (and its ridiculously fun reception, the bride's Hamilton-based RAP to the groom (!!), and the bursting-at-the-seams love these two have), I don't think you'll need further explanation as to why someone might pick them as a basis for the stuff those cartoon dreams are made of.

Upon arriving at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, guests were greeted with these adorable monogrammed Welcome Kits. The tote bags were stocked full, including the brilliant addition of lip calm, water bottles, and sunnies! All done by the bride herself!
