Destination Wedding in St. Augustine, Florida

Wedding

While I’m not yet taking on any weddings from clients on the West Coast, I know Kristen and Tom from my time in North Carolina. This wonderfully kind couple were engaged last summer, after being together for seven years. They had a casual beach wedding with smiles all around. Despite threats of storms, there wasn’t a drop of rain and the sun was out all day. Here are a few of my favorite images from the wedding day…

His and her rings.
They had the wedding at an adorable bed and breakfast. Kristen had the back cottage all to herself for getting ready.
She was totally stunning. And this was before all the makeup!
The flower girl was not keen on smiling for the camera. Luckily I got some very cute snaps as she stayed close to mommy.
Kristen after the hair, makeup, and dress. She was g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!
Mom sees Kristen in her wedding dress for the first time. Mom started tearing up after seeing her.
The very proud father.
The wedding kiss! Partners for the rest of their lives. The couldn’t have asked for a better day.
And the bliss as they walk down the aisle through rose petals.
First dance as Mr. and Mrs. You could see Tom counting the steps but those 5 weeks of dance classes paid off.
A spin on the sand as the reception began.
Some very funny and heartwarming toasts.
The father-daughter dance shows Kristen gliding across the floor.
Kristen and Tom. Beautiful people. Beautiful Couple.
Thanks for a wonderful day, guys. Here’s to wishing them a lifetime of happiness together! Cheers!

It wasn’t the crazy hot and humid weather in DC that produced the moisture coming from all members of Marisa and Tim’s families the day of the wedding.  They were emotions, plain and simple.  Tears of happiness all around. But before I get into that, I want to talk about Marisa’s gown.  Marisa knew exactly what she wanted – boat neck, long sleeves, and an open back.  She visited 3 shops until she found it.  It was a gown fit for a princess and Marisa was the image of elegance in it.  To top it all off, her pink, sparkly, patent leather Kate Spade peep-toe heels were nothing short of amazing! Her gift from Tim was a diamond neckla ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | FDR Park | Christina + Eli
Not ones to be tied down by (any) tradition or superstition, Christina and Eli had the wedding so many only dare to dream about – 100% their way.  It was a refreshing and beautiful take on such an important and personal day with sweet, sentimental flourishes and nods to different cultures and religions as these two joined together.  I feel lucky to know them as friends and to have been invited in as one of the lucky ones, along with Gary or Gary Nevitt Photography (his take on the wedding on his blog), to play such a special role in their day. We, all of us, started at the Hotel Monaco that morning.  If you’re marrying the love of your lif ...
