This past fall we spent some time with Charles and Becky photographing their wonderful Philippe Park Fall Wedding. Being an adventurous couple who love the outdoors they chose to have their wedding ceremony take place outside at Philippe park in Safety Harbor Florida. Philippe park is a very popular park with tons of activities available for locals and tourists alike. One of the coolest parts about this park is the 500 year old tree. Thats right this tree is 500 years old! It is also adjacent to a old Indian burial mound with the most incredible views. A perfect location for Charles and Becky’s first look. First looks are a great way for the bride and groom to take a few minute to be alone together before spending the day with all their family and friends.
Before we get into their beautiful ceremony, we wanted to tell you about the Safety Harbor Spa where Becky and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready for the wedding. Just a few miles from the park the Spa was the perfect place for Becky and her girls to relax and get ready. Charles gave his groomsmen Tim and Chuck the funniest pair of socks. They weren’t the only ones getting ready. Charles and Becky included their fur babies into their wedding as well. They wore these cute little bandannas that said “Best Dog” and “Dog of Honor”.
The ceremony took place under a magnificent tree in Philippe Park. The aisle was lined with pumpkins and flowers. Guests sat on benches hand made by the handy groom and his father. We love when couples incorporate so many special things into their weddings that make them one of kind and perfect for them. The benches were not the only thing Charles built. He also made the French doors that Becky walked through as well as all the center pieces and tons of other little details. Their Fall Wedding at Philippe Park was a Pintrest and photographers dream!
A beautiful one of a kind fall wedding for a special couple. I am so glad we were able to celebrate with them.
