Stephanie and Steven's Siesta Key Beach Wedding

Journal and Imagery by Sarasota Wedding Photographers Popping Champaign Photography.

When Stephanie and Steven decided to get married, they knew they wanted something intimate and meaningful. They had always dreamed of getting married on the beach, and when they stumbled upon Siesta Key Beach in Florida, they knew it was the perfect spot for their elopement, which they planned to have on their fifth-year anniversary.


On the morning of their elopement, Stephanie and Steven woke up to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Stephanie's wedding dress was made from intricate lace and featured a plunging v-neckline. This beautiful dress evokes a bohemian vibe due to its knitted crochet silhouette, adding romance at every turn. This wedding dress was absolutely perfect for their Siesta Key elopement! Steven wore a white button up shirt and khaki shorts, and headed down to the beach with their son, Thiago, in tow in the perfect matching outfit.

Their ceremony was intimate and emotional, with just the three of them, their officiant Avis at Simple Seaside Ceremonies, and their Sarasota wedding photographers Popping Champaign Photography present, to capture the beauty and intimacy of their special day. As they exchanged vows, Thiago stood by their side, grinning from ear to ear. It was a special moment for their entire family.


After the ceremony, Stephanie and Steven walked hand-in-hand along the ocean's edge with Thiago, taking in the beauty of the crystal clear water and the powdery white sand. We were able to capture many candid moments of their family of 3 soaking up every second of this special moment.

As the sun began to set, Stephanie, Steven, and Thiago sat on the beach and watched the sunset, feeling grateful and happy to have found each other. Their intimate Siesta Key Beach elopement with just the three of them was everything they had dreamed of and more, and they knew that the memories of their special day would stay with them forever.

"Zoe is very professional, has a lot of knowledge. is very sweet and made us feel very comfortable. Pictures are absolutely stunning and she capture all the love and all the great details on our special day. We loved her!"
