St. Pete Beach | Mr + Mrs Caylor | Wedding

St. Pete Beach Destination Wedding (27 of 81)

He met her brother first and once he approved, their romance began.

Right, Robert & Stacy? ;0)

Truly though, the last two years have been a perfect and sweet start to the story, a direct reflection of their personalities both individually and as a couple. Robert and Stacy connected through a church community group and soon realized that they shared a lot of interests. Trips to chicago, nights with good friends and lazy movie days (where Stacy drove Robert crazy by knowing every fact, word and actor) defined their time together and before they knew it, he was on one knee in their living room in Illinois asking her to stay with him forever.

She said yes and true to form, they moved calmly into the wedding planning process. The hitch? They would plan their wedding 1,200 miles from their home in Peoria, Illinois (my hometown!) and spend their days dreaming of sandy toes and vows exchanged as the waves ebbed and flowed behind them. It all came true on October 25th with their closest friends and family members by their sides.

Truly, I've never photographed a wedding that had the calm and genuine joy that Robert & Stacy's day had. From the sunshine pouring into the bridal sweet at the Postcard Inn, to the shorelines of St. Pete Beach and the grand finale at the incredibly elegant Rococco Steakhouse, their day was simply wonderful. 

My favorite parts/moments of their day? 

Julia's (the MOH) rockin' getting ready playlist, complete with classy, plastic cup amplification.

The groomsmen all getting ready in front of the single full-length mirror in their room. It was seriously impressive to see them all squeeze into "stacked spoon" formation. 

Watching the guests checking in at the Post Card Inn ooooh and aaaaaah over Stacy as she and Robert walked with one another throughout their bookshelf-filled lobby. 

Nearly losing it over three fishermen who were set up directly behind their wedding area. I'm talkin' dead fish on hooks set-up. Thankfully, they moved before the ceremony :) 

After Robert & Stacy + their bridal party escorted out from the ceremony, everyone found their way to each other and there was this incredibly sweet, quiet celebratory circle of hugs. It was really awesome. 

The faces of the attendees when the Rococco staff brought out the individual peanut butter + chocolate mousse desserts. They were amazing. And put everyone into a food coma. 

The toasts, which ended the night and were the most heartfelt I've ever heard. Everyone who spoke, did so in a way that spoke straight to the Robert and Stacy's character and it was really amazing. 

And with all of that being said, here are my favorite images that I really think tell the story of their day. Enjoy!
