All of the weddings I photograph are special and meaningful to me, as I build relationships with my sweet brides… they become my friends. :) However, this wedding was just a little sweeter for me to capture, as the bride is one of my long time best friends. To be able to be by her side all day long & capturing these beautiful moments throughout one of the biggest days of her life was the best feeling… I can’t really describe. :)

Courtney and Jono had been together for many years, and we all knew this wedding was a long time coming. ;) As you scroll through the pictures- it’s totally evident.. the happiness that radiates on BOTH of their faces just proves that this is a once in a lifetime kind of love. There were quite a few moments that had me near tears during the day as well. Courtney’s sweet first look with her amazing daddy, when both of their mom’s walked hand-in-hand to light the unity candle, the first dance, and also the speech that Courtney’s dad made at the reception. What a beautiful day full of sweet memories… I will forever be thankful she asked me to capture it all. <3

I have been friends with Erin for a long time. We had a sociology class together at UNF, and that was where the friendship began. :) Since then I have been so blessed to have documented so many important moments in her life.

I was there the day Gage returned from deployment after 8 long months.

I also recently documented Erin’s growing belly as they are still eagerly awaiting the arrival of their sweet baby.

Needless to say, I feel SO very honored that Erin and I have remained friends, and that I have been able to create so many memories for her growing family. :) Erin and Gage said their “I do’s” in the stunning and historical Cathedral Basilica. Afterward, we took a trolly with the bridal party and drove around the old city (dodging rain drops!) to capture some beautiful formal pictures. Afterward, the party really got started at the White Room!! Erin and Gage’s families are both so much fun– everyone danced all night and had the BEST time! It was a wonderful celebration!
