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!
