In October I had the honor of photographing my cousin, Stephanie’s wedding at the Loews Don Cesar in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was such a nice mini break from life in Chicago, and I can’t say I was complaining about being on the beach in warm weather in October! The Don Cesar is well known, and famous for being the luxurious pink hotel that sits on the beautiful white sand beaches of St. Petes. The traditional Greek ceremony was held at St. Stefanos church. Cocktails were served on a pool/beach-side patio while we took portraits in the setting sun. The reception was quite a party–the live band was awesome and the guests danced on into the night. Congratulations, Stephanie and Jon! Shout out to Rebecca Ickes for traveling with me and helping me shoot the wedding.
