Rachel & Tom

Rachel & Tom

Some couples you meet and instantly see why they are together.  You see the joy in their eyes and that life together is so much better for them.  Rachel and Tom are definitely this couple.  I swear they both light up when they see each other and probably the biggest challenge of the wedding day was to get an image of them together when they WEREN’T laughing!

The entire day was such a joy to photograph– it was a day filled with family, friends and laughter!  (Yes, that sounds like a Hallmark commercial, but I swear its how the day felt!)  Hotel Duval was the perfect setting for their art deco themed wedding and I ADORE the use of purple, rose gold and books into their table decor. 

I will say, it may possibly be the only wedding I have ever photographed that had a 3 minute high-five hand off of the bride, extensive Friends quotes, and lobster hats as part of the ceremony.  The wedding was as unique as Rachel and Tom and it is definitely a wedding I will never forget!

Weddings don’t get much better than Laura and Alex’s at Pearl in the Wild!  Yes, it was August and it was HOT, but everyone was so happy, fun and absolutely focused on giving this couple the perfect day!

I had an absolute blast photographing their special day and becoming friends with such a sweet loving couple!  I would photograph weddings every day if they were all this fun!

Tracey & Roger

Tracey & Roger

Just after Christmas, Tracey and Roger had their intimate family-focused wedding at Wakulla Springs Lodge.  When I say family-focused, I mean that that could have easily been the wedding theme.  The bride and groom each chose their parents to stand as their attendants, with the groom’s daughter as the flowergirl.  It was a day full of emotion but I don’t think I have ever seen so much love and support for the bride and groom!

Jessica Jo and Jason are not ones for formality or tradition just for tradition’s sake.  They wanted a fun, boho-chic wedding and that is exactly what they got!  The whole weekend was one big party and even though there were a few happy tears, they were always quickly followed by fits of laughter!

Sharon & Sam’s Wedding

Sharon & Sam’s Wedding

Sharon and Sam both had wonderful first marriages but each became widowed and spent time alone.  After time, they found one another and with that came a source of friendship, laughter and love.  They decided to have an intimate backyard wedding for their family and closest friends.  Sharon’s daughters stood as her bridesmaids and Sam’s grandson was his best man.  It was a very relaxed event full of great food, plentiful drinks and abundant laughter.  Being with Sharon and Sam even for a short period of time means that you are treated like family!

Mary and Andrew had a travel themed wedding with a full mass at St. Peters Anglican Cathedral and and an evening of dancing at the Four Points Sheraton in downtown Tallahassee.  It was the perfect day for this jet setting couple who met swing dancing!   There focus was on their faith, their love and their family.  The day was full of laughter and joy and it was such a pleasure to photograph!
