I was honored to be flown to Florida to document Kristen and Bretton’s nautical-themed Sarasota wedding. I had heard less than flattering things about Florida, so my expectations were quite low. I now am furiously scheming a plan to return as fast as I can! Sugar sand white beaches, clear blue water and unbelievable wildlife brought me close to tears. I LOVED it!!!!!!! I now plan on being an ultra-tanned retiree with lounge chair on beach. I get it now! On my way from California, I stopped over in New Orleans to grab my dear friend and master photographer, Jennifer Zdon, of Twirl Photography to co-shoot the nuptials. Kristen and Brett’s love for eachother is a big tearjerker and the lush event couldn’t have been more perfect. Their family and friends came from around the country and internationally to toast the couple, and the event was beautiful and memorable. Congratulations to Kristen and Bretton! A special thanks to Keren Lifrak Weddings & Special Events!
