Snooty Approved Union: Erika & Steve

Erika & Steve have chosen Bradenton, Florida for their destination wedding, and I have the pleasure of helping them design their dream day! This adorable couple resides outside of DC, where they shot their engagement photos with Eli Turner Studios, featured below. Pastel blossoms by the water make for a gorgeous and organic backdrop, and they have made me want to hop on the first flight to our nation's capital.

Erika is a photojournalistic style wedding photographer in Maryland & DC and it was really flattering when her and Steve decided Oh Hello would be a great fit for them. Wedding photographers see it all, and I would imagine this helps them really identify what they want (and don't want) when it comes to their celebration. For Erika and Steve, this means an intimate destination wedding, organic food, a Mariachi band (yes!), and The South Florida Museum as their setting. 

The South Florida Museum is home to Snooty, a 65 year old manatee who made a cameo on their save the date in illustrated form by The Paper Zoo. I can't think of a better spot than this gorgeous, historic museum.
