Seagate Powel Crosley Estate | Bret & Courtney

Seagate Powel Crosley Estate Wedding

Bret and Courtney are married!!! They celebrated their wedding in the heart of Sarasota, Florida at Seagate Powel Crosley Estate. The location itself displays timeless beauty and elegance, making it the perfect backdrop for their big day. Bret and Courtney’s wedding was filled with laughter and the most vibrant tropical color pallet.

Every inch of Seagate Powel Crosley Estate is stunning. Bret and Courtney’s wedding ceremony was held on the back lawn surrounded by Palm Trees and view of Sarasota Bay’s tranquil waters. Before the music even started, Bret had the biggest smile on his face. These two truly have a love like no other!

One thing I adore about Courtney and Bret is their bold and fun personalities. During their engagement session I enjoyed spending time with them and laughing at all their jokes and stories. Bret and Courtney made sure their wedding day was a reflection of their joyful personalities. They recreated the wedding recessional from Love Actually, one of their favorite movies. After they were pronounced husband and wife, band members throughout the crowd began to play All You Need Is Love. It was perfect!

The evening ended with the greatest party and celebration! Guests spent the night dancing on the patio under the twinkle lights. The late night snack of Chicago Popcorn was the perfect addition to their wedding cake.

I feel truly honored to have been a part of this special day and to have witnessed such love and joy. It is moments like these that remind me why I chose to be a photographer – to capture the beauty and emotion of life’s most precious moments!

One of the most unique parts of the day was Bret’s grand entrance! Bret and the guys arrived to the venue by boat. Both Bret and Courtney love the water so this was a fun way to show off his personality and arrive in style!
