Brooke and Carter ~Pier 22 Wedding Bradenton Florida ~Tampa Florida Wedding ~Lauren K Downing Photography

Brook and Carter hold an extra special spot in my heart. I first bet these two at her sisters wedding previously and I immediately could see they were smitten with each other. I knew they would not be far behind.

When Brooke’s sister reached out about photographing her little sisters wedding it was a HECK YES! This family is kind, and welcoming and truly a blessing. They are some of the sweetest people I know.

On the day of the wedding we arrived at Brooke’s hotel to capture some moments between her and her favorite ladies. My second Mary was able to get some fun behind the scenes and special moments. We spent some time with the ladies, and then headed to Pier 22 to get ready for their ceremony. Brooke and Carter were married at Pier 22 and WOW it is a favorite of mine. I honestly could photograph weddings here all the time.

When Brooke walked down the isle, Carter could not help himself. He beamed, he cried, we cried, everyone cried. Seeing them marry warmed my heart and I may have cried through the entire thing. Check out all the pretty.
