Gale Mansion | Summer Wedding

It seems as if it were just yesterday that we connected with Alyssa and Alex for their engagement session in sunny Southwest Florida!  We knew then, without a doubt, that their wedding day was going to be absolutely amazing!  The day had arrived and Karen and her team at Gale Mansion ensured everything was perfect from start to finish!  Every single detail was stunning including the Verragio rings from Arthur’s Jewelers.  The ladies began the morning with Kayla Anne Hair Co. and Jess Krause on makeup.  We took a few photos with their matching floral robes before Alyssa put on her breathtaking Mikaella by Paloma Blanca gown.  She shared a first look with her bridesmaids and father before heading to the Holy Cross Catholic Church for the ceremony.

Guests gathered to celebrate as Alyssa and Alex exchanged vows, and we are so excited to see the beauty that Sunset Blue Productions captured on video!  We began family portraits in the church, and then drove to St. Anthony Main to capture a few photos where Alex had proposed.  We travelled back to Gale Mansion where the wedding party joined us for portraits.  The ladies looked gorgeous in their Kenneth Winston dresses from Raffiné Bridal, and the men looked amazing in their Calvin Klein suits from Men’s Wearhouse.  We celebrated with a petal toss and bubbles before heading in for cocktail hour.  

Alyssa and Alex cut their cake, and the reception officially began!  We stepped outside for golden hour photos after dinner, and returned for speeches and dancing with Harmony DJ Entertainment to end the evening.  It truly was an incredible wedding, and receiving these words from Alyssa was such an honor: “We are so blessed Shane could capture our day!  I know we will look at these photos for years to come and reminisce on what a beautiful day it was!”  Alyssa and Alex, it was such a gift to be a part of your wedding, and we hope that your honeymoon to Italy this fall is every bit as dreamy!
