Romantic, Outdoor Vintage Sarasota Wedding | Powel Crosley Estate Wedding

Kaitlyn and Vaughn’s Sarasota wedding featured an outdoor, waterfront ceremony and reception.

“Our wedding was a mix of vintage, romantic and DIY,” the bride shared. “We chose soft pink, rose, blush and sage colors. It went well with the venue and theme we were going for.”

Complementing the bride’s beauty and attire, Kaitlyn’s wedding accessories also accented her heirloom theme.

“I made the shoulder necklace I wore. The cameo in the center of the necklace was my great-great-grandmother’s,” the bride revealed. “The bridesmaids walked down the aisle with ‘book bouquets,’ used hardcover books in a green color, all of which were classic love stories, such as Romeo and Juliet and Wuthering Heights. My own bouquet was also made out of paper from books and maps.”

The St. Petersburg bride and groom incorporated intimate touches that reflected their personalities.

“We had two rubber duckies on our sweetheart table (an inside joke), which were dressed as a bride and groom, and bowls of gummy bears (our favorite go-to for road trips) on the cocktail hour high top tables.

As a photographer herself, the bride searched for very specific qualities in her Sarasota wedding photographer.

“I looked for someone with high quality, artistic images,” Kaitlyn explained. “I hired Brandi of Brandi Image Photography because I admired her talent and ‘eye’ for seeing the things the average person wouldn’t. Our experience with her service was everything we could have hoped for from beginning to end. The final images helped us remember our day in the best way possible, and we’ll be forever grateful for it.”

What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
I looked for someone with high quality, artistic images.

As a photographer and artist myself, I hired Brandi of Brandi Image Photography because I admired her talent and “eye” for seeing the things the average person wouldn’t. Her work often inspired me because it captured raw emotions and genuine moments, and that’s what I wanted in a wedding photographer. Our experience with her service was everything we could have hoped for from beginning to end. She was easy to work with, friendly, attentive and fully prepared for every moment. The final images helped us remember our day in the best way possible, and we’ll be forever grateful for it.

What advice would you give to other Sarasota couples?
Spend money and time on the things that matter the most and do not worry about the little things. I saved money by making things myself, getting a less expensive dress and using vendors I knew personally.
