Let's Party & Enjoy Life


Loving life, bride Tiffany and groom Jasen, knew the perfect spot for their wedding. 



Before moving out of state, the couple wanted to celebrate their unity with family and friends at a beach wedding filled with laughter, memories, and love. The ceremony was held at Anna Maria Beach with a beautiful reception by Sunrise Gardens.


Th couple's motto: "Let's Party and enjoy life." 
The purple and khaki undertones made for a perfect romantic yet carefree feel as they celebrated life and love on their special day. 




Tiffany's father unfortunately passed away from cancer so as a thoughtful reminder, she had a picture of him on her bouquet, representing him being there in spirit. In lieu of wedding favors, donations were made to The American Cancer Society in Loving Msemory of {Buddy Burress} by the couple.

Vision of Beauty


Couple Justin and Elise flew from New York to make their dream wedding come true. 

Bride Elise, from Australia, is in theater, so she had a very clear vision of what her wedding would be like. With the help of The Loft 5 and other vendors, her vision became reality, making their special day absolutely unforgettable. 



The wedding took place on the beach on Anna Maria Island and a trolly took the wedding party to the Waterfront restaurant, which Justin's cousin owns, where they shared a beautiful evening of celebrating their love with family and friends. 



A special moment for groom Justin was when he and his grandfather made table numbers for the reception. It was one of those details that made their day that much more special.

Southern Charm

Hosted by her mother, Iris and her Aunt, Mesia, bride to be, Lacey Shuttleworth's bridal shower was right out of colonial times.

The setting was as if you were in old Charleston, South Carolina, with a long drive way leading up to a beautiful colonial style home. Guests were greeted by a harpist playing music picked up by the cool breeze.

A young man served refreshments as a Marc Jacob stiletto was passed around to be signed by guests.
As guests walked in the charm continued as beautiful details surrounded the home. The foyer was filled with gifts and her aunt's wedding dress was on display.


There were three tea stations with English and German tea cups. Drinks included strawberry mint water and a Champaign cocktail. Private chefs prepared food that was taken to the dinning table and displayed elegantly. Last but certainly not least there was lavender cookies with a rose water icing that blended so well into the mood of the day.






The bridal shower was a beautiful day filled with love and happiness as the bride and her close family and friends celebrated the upcoming nuptials. Guests enjoyed the southern charm of the private estate while sipping on cool refreshments and nibbling on delectable treats.

The gift of love

Weddings are when two souls become one. While traditions and customs may be different, the meaning behind a marriage stays the same. 

The wedding ring is often the gateway to a lifetime relationship. Rings have been worn in many cultures. While the traditions may vary, the sentiment & meaning to love, treasure and honor one another forever remains the same ... 
"you are mine and I am yours."
