Tim and Elona got married on Sunday, August 20th on Santa Rosa Beach in Florida. Their ceremony took place right on the beach with a reception to follow at The Bay Restaurant. Elona and I used to work together back in Connecticut and I was honored when she asked me to be her wedding photographer! It was my first time photographing a beach wedding and it did not disappoint! Well…besides the heat. I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to Florida in the middle of August, but it is no joke! Thank goodness you would never be able to tell how hot it was by looking at these pictures!
I absolutely loved the time and thought Elona put into her wedding details. Everything from her elegant wedding invitations to her Manolo Blahnik stilettos. I mean come on! My inner “Carrie Bradshaw” was doing a happy dance. The light blush colors in her bouquet tied in perfectly with the bridesmaid and flower girls dresses.
I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to an Albanian wedding before…but if you haven’t, you’re missing out! The whole night was filled with laughter, dancing and dollar bills! It is an Albanian tradition to shower the bride and groom with money as they dance in the middle of their family members. I had so much fun and it was definitely a night I will never forget. Thank you Tim and Elona for letting me be a part of your special day. It was so good seeing old friends and meeting new ones! Wishing you two a lifetime of love and happiness!
