Wedding at Palmetto Bed and Breakfast
Wedding and Reception Location: Palmetto, FL
Jennifer and Tom were planning an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends at one of our favorite wedding venues – the gorgeous Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast. The owners are always so great to work with and know how to look after their vendors!
Jennifer and Tom are actually from Pittsburg but love to vacation in Florida and we’d met up with them for an engagement session on Longboat Key around six months ago. With perfect weather conditions forecast, we were excited to reconnect as they made their final preparations for their wedding in separate suites at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast.
Getting ready photos at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast:
While Jennifer was getting ready with her bridesmaids, we captured some candid shots as Tom put on his wedding shoes and adjusted his suit jacket with the help of a groomsman. We grabbed a black and white shot as the boys readied themselves for the ceremony, then captured a casual shot as they strode through the landscaped gardens.
Meanwhile, Jennifer was having the final touches applied to her makeup by Rose Johnson while stylist Lo Edwards did her hair. We used the time available to capture details shots of her gorgeous bouquet by 2Birds Events and dress by Essense of Australia hanging in her suite, as well as capturing an up-close shot of her locket featuring a photo of her and her dad.
As Jennifer stepped into her dress, we documented the moment through a creative black and white before getting up close to capture the stunning detailing on the back of her dress. Jennifer’s mom watched on as the bride admired herself in a mirror, then helped in securing her earrings beside the suite window.
With Jennifer dressed and ready to go, we captured portraits of her looking absolutely radiant in her elegant Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast suite. We grabbed both color and black and white shots as she looked out the windows towards her garden wedding ceremony site, then headed downstairs for some garden portraits with her bridesmaids.
Pre-Ceremony photos at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast:
Although we hoped to surprise Jennifer with the first look, she actually heard Tom coming up behind her, but still reacted joyfully at seeing her groom for the first time on their wedding day. We used the opportunity for some portraits of the couple in the gardens, capturing both up-close embraces and full-body shots beneath the sprawling trees.

Jennifer’s father then walked her down the aisle for the start of the intimate wedding ceremony at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast. The couple exchanged vows on the grassy lawns overlooking the waterfront, with Spanish moss hanging whimsically above. We tried to capture their wedding ceremony from multiple angles, taking advantage of the magnificent setting at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast.
Post-Ceremony photos at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast:
After making their recessional walk down the aisle as “husband and wife”, we captured some more romantics of the newlyweds and did a bridal party portrait session. We grabbed a shot of the couple kissing as their bridal party celebrated around them, as well as a shot of the groomsmen pushing Jennifer in the garden swing.
The white picket fence at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast was perfect for some classic couple portraits before the couple’s bridal party showered them with flower petals. We then walked down to the small dock to capture some portraits of the couple looking out across the water and grabbed a shot of them embracing at the wedding ceremony site decorated by Blue Skies Weddings and Events.
Reception photos at the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast:
Jennifer and Tom’s wedding reception was being held outdoors at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast with romantic string lights hung above. We captured some wide-angle shots looking across this beautiful setting, as well documenting their first dance as family and friends watched on.
We also grabbed a few nighttime portraits of the couple seated at their sweetheart table and being illuminated by off-camera flash before documenting all the action of the dance floor.
It was a privilege to capture Jennifer and Tom’s beautiful wedding at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast and to photograph once again at this stunning Palmetto wedding venue. We wish them all the best as they return to Pittsburgh and the new life that awaits them there.
