Elegant Wedding at The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St. Pete, FL


Introducing, Mr. and Mrs. Bond! These two hosted their wedding day at The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. They really know how to piece together an elegant affair that still feels intimate. The entire day was centered solely around the two of them.

Breann and Jon have years of history together. Their wedding was a long time coming and so worth the wait. With a last name like Bond, there’s no way these two couldn’t have a connection that tightly bound them together for life.


The first look is always one of our favorite moments to be a part of. Breann was so nervous for Jon’s reaction. Of course, she was worried for nothing! She was an absolute vision and Jon delivered! The moment his eyes locked on his beautiful bride, he was emotionally spent. He was full of joyful tears and disbelief. His expression said it all, “Is this real? She’s truly mine for life?!” It was so heartwarming to witness!

Whether you choose to do a first look for your own wedding day or not, the decision is entirely your own. However, a first look is a special opportunity to steal a moment for yourselves. Trust us, wedding days happen in a blur. Your loved ones are eager to bless your marriage with well wishes. It can be hard to find a moment alone after the ceremony. By choosing to do a first look, you give yourselves the time and space to soak it all in, just the two of you!


If elegance and grandeur is your vibe, a wedding at The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel is for you! Located by the bay in St. Petersburg, Florida this wedding venue is perfect for local or destination weddings. The waterfront views and intricate architecture set the stage for a classy affair.

Breann’s wedding decor was beautifully minimal and romantic. She decorated the venue with white roses and greenery. She dressed her tabletops with floating candles and glass table numbers. It was a classy design that really let their story shine.


Aaron and I have worked a lot of weddings together. It’s safe to say that Breann and Jon are one of the most connected couples we’ve ever worked with. They are so aware of each other. After the first look, there was no way either of them would stay out of sight from the other.

It’s very common for weddings to center around friends and family. Breann and Jon’s wedding day was clear, this day was all about them! This bond is so special and rare. It will carry them far in life!

They rang in the reception dancing to “Anyone” by Justin Bieber. The best part? It was choreographed! I can only imagine how much fun they had rehearsing together for their wedding day. These two have so much fun ahead of them in their marriage!


One of the best surprises of the day was their dog! Their adorable Golden Retriever was wedding day ready, dressed in a puppy tux. He was a close companion that kept all the jitters at bay. The Bond’s are proof that, yes, dogs can absolutely be a part of an elegant wedding day. They even had a tribute to him added to their wedding cake! Personal touches like this make your wedding day a unique experience that sets your story apart from the rest.
