Carrie & Tom Married! | GWP Weddings

What a wedding!  One of our first destination weddings of the year went off with a bang! Our beautiful bride Carrie married her witty groom Tom in Sanibel Island, Florida at the Casa Ybel Resort. Gregg and I went down on Friday night to Sanibel and were invited to small gathering at Carrie’s Mom’s house which was about 20 minutes from where the wedding and reception was. It was so great being able to catch up and relax with everyone before the big day! We were happy to get so many compliments on the fun engagement shoot we did with Carrie and Tom a few months back. Tom’s family is from New York, close to the area Gregg is from so they had a lot (of baseball) to talk about.

The day of the wedding we met Carrie and her girls at her bridal suite, which really was sweet because it was about 30 yards away from the water! Everyone was so relaxed and mellow which makes for a happy bride and wedding. Gregg and I just snapped away at them doing their make-up and getting ready. We stepped away for a few minutes to take a couple photos of her dress which was in a little bridal house near the ceremony area. As we found out, there was more than one wedding going on, so for about 10 minutes we weren’t sure if we had the right dress!! Well, after quizzing Amelia, Carrie’s MOH sister we figured out it was the right dress. Carrie and Tom were such an amazing couple to photograph and we couldn’t have been happier with the gorgeous location and amazing weather. Thank you Carrie and Tom for having us on your big day and please enjoy the photos! We do!
