St. Petersburg, Florida Beach Wedding | St. Pete Wedding Photography

Jacquelyn Wayne and Benjamin Crane said their vows on the soft sands of Madeira Beach in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was a magnificent day and the Florida sun shone brilliantly upon the happy couple and the intimate group of family and friends that came to view the union. Jackie and Ben are not only partners in life but they are best friends to one another and it showed through the range of beautiful emotions that they expressed as the ceremony progressed.

Afterwards, the reception was held a short walk away from the ceremony site at a group of beach cottages that Jackie and Ben had rented out for their families. Leading up to the wedding, Ben took a pottery classes and made all of the centerpieces for the tables himself. These were enjoyed by the guests as a lovingly catered meal was served. As the evening went on, newlyweds and guests alike danced the night away under a new moon nestled in the warm gulf coast air.
