I was so excited to be able to photograph Lil & Steve’s wedding. They are such a fun couple… I realized after we took a boat ride during their amazing engagement session that their wedding day would be tons of fun, and I was right! :) This was our second time photographing a wedding at the historic First Presbyterian Church in Fernandina Beach, as one of my previous brides (who was in Lil’s wedding too!) was married there just a few months prior. The rain that was forecasted for the majority of the day didn’t interrupt Lil & Steve’s wedding for the most part. It held off until minutes before the ceremony was set to begin. Lil was supposed to walk outside in order to enter through the front of the church doors… the church coordinator and I briefly spoke when the rain began about postponing the wedding for a few minutes to see if it would blow over- and as we went to tell Lil we were going to wait a few minutes, we opened the front door and Lil was walking…well, sprinting, outside with an umbrella!  She was so determined to get down that aisle on time and marry her hunny! ;) Lil walked down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri- and every time I hear that song now, it makes me think of their perfect day.

Lil & Steve, thank you so much for allowing Brent & I to be a part of your wedding. We love you guys!

Katie & Casey are Married! | Drayden, MD Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer | Jacksonville, FL Wedding Photographer

June 08, 2013 / (Private Residence) | Drayden, MD

I was honestly STOKED and SO HONORED that Katie & Casey flew me & Brent all the way up to Maryland to photograph their wedding! I am a friend of the maid of honor’s, who was actually engaged before Katie. When I did her engagement pictures- Katie saw them… and the rest is history. Their wedding was filled with rustic details, sweet tea, and a fun dance party! (Oh, and a SUPER FUN bridal party too… we LOVED them!!!!) I wish I could explain how PERFECT Katie & Casey are for each other… the connection between them is definitely a special one, & it takes a very strong woman like Katie to stand behind a man in the military. I so admire them for that. The day after their wedding, K&C invited me to yet another beautiful private property with a barn for an amazing after session- complete with TWO horses… and TWO bride/grooms! (I also photographed her sister in law, and her husband!) It was so much fun hanging out all weekend with such amazing/fun people, and I am so glad we were able to capture these memories for them. THANK YOU again, Katie & Casey for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding day…. it was an absolute pleasure.

Jennifer & Earle are Married! | Queen’s Harbour Yacht & Country Club Wedding | Jacksonville FL Wedding Photographer

May 26, 2013 / Queen’s Harbour Yacht & Country Club | Jacksonville, FL

When Jennifer and I met for the first time at Starbucks, we hit it off right away. (& not only because we have the same name!) She talked a lot about her wedding plans and ideas, and she is so creative & has such an eye for detail. Everything came together so beautifully on her wedding day. The weather was great at the beautiful Queens Harbour Yacht and Country Club and everything seemed perfect except for one small thing… Jennifer had a major stomach bug! :( Unfortunately, we learned that no matter how hard you work to plan everything- there are some things that are just out of your control… but we totally didn’t let it damper on the day. ;) We carefully pushed our way through the photos, and Jennifer looked STUNNING.. I mean seriously, I wish I could look even 1/2 that amazing when I’m sick!! The day was perfect in the end, and a beautiful family of *five* became one. :) Congrats to the happy family!

amanda + dylan are married! | fernandina beach elopement | elopement photographer | jacksonville, fl photographer

June 12, 2013 | Fernandina Beach, FL Elopement

Floral Arrangement: Artistic Florist, Fernandina Beach, FL

 

It was seriously such an HONOR and a PLEASURE to be a part of Amanda & Dylan’s surprise elopement. :) Their families knew they were engaged, but they didn’t know when they planned on eloping- so it was a big surprise for nearly everyone! I showed up at their home, and drove to the courthouse with them. When they were signing their license, the lady at the courthouse asked if they had a witness. Amanda & Dylan looked each other, and then looked at me… and I raised my hand! They had a very short, but sweet ceremony in front of the Fernandina Beach courthouse, filled with smiles & laughs. We then hopped back in their car, and drove back to their house. A few hours later we met back up for their formal after session. We had the most beautiful light and setting… and I barely even had to give Amanda & Dylan any direction. They were truly so happy just to be together and to be married, and it definitely showed. Congrats to the newlyweds, and again.. thank you for trusting me with your wedding memories, it was such a blast!

*Cell phone picture Amanda took of me, signing their marriage license. :) SO COOL!

Casey + Josh are MARRIED! | Costa Rica wedding | destination wedding photographer | Los Suenos Resort, Costa Rica | Jacksonville FL wedding photographer

May 24, 2013 / Los Suenos Resort | Costa Rica

Ceremony: Los Suenos Resort, Costa Rica
Reception Venue: Casa de Los Suenos, Costa Rica
Bridal Gown: J Crew

Where do I even begin!? Let’s start with COSTA RICA… lol! This was Brent and I’s very first DESTINATION wedding… & we were so honored to photograph an amazing day for our sweet friends, Josh & Casey. I should probably mention that literally almost every single day that we were in Costa Rica, it rained- since right now is their rainy season. Even if it was gorgeous in the morning- by afternoon the clouds rolled in, and the rain showed it’s face. The ONLY day the rain completely held off for the entire day- was Josh & Casey’s big day- talk about being blessed!! Their ceremony was short and sweet. The really cool part about it though, was Casey & Josh were married by Josh’s best friend Phil (now aka, Father Phil)- who got his notary just so he could marry them. After the ceremony everyone retreated to the beach house that they rented for the week- and that’s where the party got started! Everyone changed into their bathing suits, and we had a pool party! It was filled with an epic bouquet and garter toss INTO the POOL (we have never seen that done before! lol), and a hilarious drinking game (literally called, “THE GAME”). Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. I hope everyone enjoys the Harlem Shake pictures!! It starts with the bride and groom with lampshades on their heads… look closely at each individual image after that one for a bunch of laughs! Incase you haven’t gotten the overall “gist” of the day- it was a BLAST. Brent and I loved photographing this wedding, as well as being able to spend the occasion with a bunch of our friends. :) Congratulations, Casey & Josh… and we wish you two the BEST of luck in this brand new chapter of your life! xxoo
