Venice Yacht Club Wedding with Abbie and Sam

When Sam and Abbie started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted it at the Venice Yacht Club.  Abbie's parents are members, and everyone loves spending time there gathering with friends, eating great food and enjoying their boat.

It was a pleasant Sunday morning when I met Abbie at her parents' house on Venice Island to photograph her getting ready.  They couldn't wait to show off their cute robes and fun socks!

Abbie's bouquet and boutonnieres were from Venetian Flowers on Tamiami and she made sure everything was in place before she walked down the aisle.

The cloudy sky kept the day from being too warm as the guests gathered around the flagpole.  Sam entered from the tiki bar area and Abbie's father walked her down the aisle.

We took the family portraits by the flagpole, then went down to the dock and over to the Venice jetty for their couple's photos.

Guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Sunset Room and Bar.  After the Grand Entrance they enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife before dinner was served.  DJ Steve Ash from To Honor You Weddings and Special Events provided the music for the entire night.

Cakes By Ron provided both their wedding cake and six different flavors of cupcakes for everyone to enjoy.  The night wouldn't have been complete without the bouquet toss and garter throw.

I love meeting and photographing families and each person has a story to tell.  Unfortunately there's never enough time or space to share everything but here's a little story and a few pictures of the amazing people I get to work with.
