The Sandbar Anna Maria Island Wedding

Adam & Jenn were a super sweet, and super busy couple who came to us in need of help. We were more than happy to oblige the sweet couple and help plan their laid back beach wedding. They chose May 2nd as their date, and The Sandbar on Anna Maria Island as their venue for both ceremony and reception.

The Sandbar is a gorgeous venue that offers a sandy toes beach ceremony, with a covered (but still sandy toes) reception near by. The delicious seafood and delectable drink offerings were just what Adam and Jenn wanted, and Kristen from aka photographs was on hand to capture the entire day on film!

Jenn wore a gorgeous dress from Something Blue Bridal, and even though a May rain storm forced their ceremony off of the beach and under the pavilion, the bright colors and the steel drum still made the event sunny and bright.

Minimal flowers were needed because of the gorgeous scenery, and a beachy cake from Publix hit the spot for all of those with a sweet tooth. Black Tie DJs kept the party going, as they always do, and everyone on hand had a terrific time on the beach that night.
