Sally + Todd were married in between raindrops, on a beautiful, stormy Saturday afternoon in Stuart, Florida.

Here they are at the historical House of Refuge.

Earlier that day… Sally readied at her parents’ home nearby.

This portrait is one of my favorites…

Over at the House of Refuge, Todd and the guys had some time to play while waiting for Sally and the girls to arrive.

Soon after, Sally arrived, braving the weather for their first look moment.

I just love this picture!!!

As Todd waited, Sally came up behind him in the distance.

When he turned to see her… their looks were priceless.

The tender moments that followed on the porch as the wind blew were amazing.

Soon the bridal party joined them, during a lull in the weather, for a beachfront stroll.

Seconds after this shot was taken, the skies opened up and drenched everyone.

The ceremony at House of Refuge was relocated indoors at the last minute.

Sally decended the staircase, escorted by her dads, as friends and family looked on.

As the newlyweds exited, guests found their tables assignments listed on this creative hanging garden installation.

The leaf shaped place cards doubled as napkin rings, and worked great with the reception’s brown and green palette.

Each table featured a different orchid arrangement.

A dance floor was installed over the pool…

And paper and glass lanterns hung about.

Guests were encouraged to write and “mail” a note to the happy couple, in lieu of a sign in book.

Once the party got started, everyone got wild.

As the end of the night neared, guest were given these little Honey Bear favors, from buzzonin.com

After the cake was cut…

There was one final private toast…

And one passionate last dance.
