Kristin & Mike

Kristin & Mike

Kristin and Mike’s wedding is LONG overdue!  The couple started dating over ten years ago, got engaged and planned their wedding for 2020.  Covid had other plans and they tried to postpone their wedding until Spring of 2021, yet Covid still intervened.  Thank goodness everything finally came together and these two had an absolutely beautiful wedding at Mission San Luis!

The weather was perfect, the guests brought the fun and it was a hilarious day of silliness, happiness and overall celebration!  The only big tears were from the groom through the entire ceremony, but even that just added to the awesomeness of the day.  A huge congratulations to Kristin and Mike– FINALLY!

Portia & Earl got married a few years ago in Savannah, but wanted to have an official Catholic wedding that honors their shared Filipino heritage.  It was such a lovely day of family and close friends that not only honored their culture, but also highlighted their adopted home of Tallahassee!

Becca and Brandon really wanted to honor tradition with their wedding.  They no longer live in Quincy, but they came back to have their wedding ceremony in the same church as their parents and grandparents and to have the reception at the Swano club, as their parents did before them.  Even the wedding date was chosen to honor their family.  

Even though they honored family and traditional, I would definitely say the party was anything but traditional!  It was such a fun celebration with endless dancing and laughter.  It was such a joy to photograph!

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!
