Grace & Danny

“Elegance is good taste, plus a dash of daring.” - Carmel Snow, Harper’s Bazaar

We love a good quote - and nothing could better summarize the wedding day of Grace & Danny quite like this one from the Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar.

As you journey through the day, the elegance and good taste will speak for themselves… but the daring part?
That’s a neat little story!

When Grace contracted with her florist (Floral Artistry of Sanibel), she fully entrusted the design of her bouquet, her arch, and her reception to the creative minds on the FAS team! She told them to use their experience and expertise to craft a lush design she would fall in love with - and they NAILED it!

Living in the Tampa area, Grace & Danny selected Sanibel resort Casa Ybel to host their special day. Casa Ybel has some of the best beach front on the island, but what the couple fell in love with was the greenery around the property - we didn’t set foot on the beach the entire day!

Few things are more exciting for us than working with Steve Farst -
he provided the entertainment for our own wedding, and is so super talented.

Even better than that? The father of the bride’s speech -
thoughtful and loving, it featured a cameo by two of Grace’s favorite childhood toys!

Taryn & Daniel

Chicago, Illinois has a lot to offer - it’s a beautiful metropolitan city with lots of sights to see.
What it doesn’t have?
Palm trees. Beaches. South Seas Island Resort

It’s no mystery to us why Taryn & Daniel decided to leave Chicago and celebrate their love on the sandy shores of Captiva Island!

Jennifer & Brent

We have the best clients, truly.

And we meet our couples all kinds of ways. Most are referred to us through our close-knit network of wedding partners or through exposure in publications and web-based searches. A few times a year, we're asked to photograph the wedding of a bride or groom that is already in our industry- and that is incredibly flattering.

Jennifer & Brent met while working together at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs. As a preferred vendor there, we met them while shooting another wedding. When it came time for their own special day, they knew who they wanted to ask to capture all the moments!

And boy, did we!

Style tip: Letting the ladies choose their own gowns gives such a dynamic, fun flair to bridal party portraits! They can choose the style that suits them best, in a range of colors that work together in just the right way. Nailed it!

Jennifer’s father couldn’t walk her down the aisle due to health reasons, but that didn’t stop her from honoring him. Her brother escorted her to the beginning of the aisle, she walked the length of it by herself, and ended the walk with a big hug from her dad - sitting front and center for the ceremony! We loooooved her thoughtful approach!

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?

After a gorgeous afternoon on the water, it was early to bed, early to rise for the wedding day :) 
The couple selected Long Bay Beach's The Shore Club as the site to celebrate

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!!!
