A Luxurious Oceanfront Wedding in Florida

Natalia + Scott met the summer of 2009, Natalia was a freshman in high school and like the other girls in her class, she found herself crushing on a senior names Scott… Flash forward to Natalia’s senior year of college, Natalia was home in Chicago over Thanksgiving break and ended up running into Scott on the streets of Chicago! The two were shocked to see one another out and about + Scott openly admitted to “looking you up on facebook” a few days prior! Natalia, trying to play it cool, told him to hit her up sometime if he still had her number from years prior..within five minutes Scott messages Natalia and the rest is history!

The two originally had plans for a big Chicago Wedding during the fall of 2022. Natalia just a few weeks prior to their engagement session in Florida back in January of 2022 reached out asking if she were crazy to consider doing a destination wedding instead. I quickly responded saying, “HECK NO!!!!!!!”

Two weeks pass and my husband and I are headed down to Fort Myers Beach Florida for their engagement session. Upon our arrival, Natalia alerts me of three venues they are planning on touring for their big day. As soon as they came across the Hyatt Regency Clearwater the two were sold!

So it began, planning their dream wedding with an oceanfront view in Clearwater Beach, Florida!

The two planned a welcome party the night before to welcome all their guests in from out of town, they truly made it a full weekend event for guests!

From start to finish on Natalia + Scott’s big day it was straight out of a magazine! Natalia had a very specific vision when it came to her dream Florida wedding! The two shared a first look prior to the ceremony which allowed them ample time to relax alongside one another on their big day!

Natalia + Scott also had a first look with their wedding reception space, this was SO special and allowed the couple to soak in all their hard work making their vision come to life!

Just before sunset, we snuck out for some beachside couples portraits before dancing the night away with their closest friends and family!

This Florida wedding truly did not disappoint! Thank you Natalia + Scott for choosing me to capture your Best Day Yet! Interested in a destination wedding of your own? Make sure to contact me a the link attached!
