It’s always a pleasure to feel welcomed by the wedding party…
I was referred to Jessica and Matthew by Ellen Braley of El’s Cards, and I couldn’t have been happier to photograph this wedding. The venue was stunning, the ceremony was personal, and the reception was elegant. I felt so welcomed by everyone, and was absolutely humbled by how lovely the wedding party was to me.
The prep for this wedding was very emotional. The bride, her family, and her maid of honor were overflowing with love for each other. There were plenty of tears to go around. While Jessica was getting ready, Matthew had a surprise gift sent over for her. The maid of honor had procured a picture of the dress and tuxedo, which an artist sketched together. Don’t worry, the groom wasn’t allowed to see it before the wedding!
The groom got ready in a room above the country club. When my second photographer, Kam Mitchell, arrived, he was watching a game with his groomsmen, who were still raving about the night before. They all seemed very relaxed and comfortable before the wedding.
The ceremony took place outside the country club overlooking the bay. The weather was as radiant as the bride. After the ceremony, the wedding party took pictures around the club, including the groom and his THREE twin sisters. After the photo session, the bride and groom rode over to cocktail hour on the back of a golf cart. They were so adorable!
One of my favorite shots is of the two fathers shaking hands at cocktail hour. It was a really special moment, and I feel honored to have captured it.
The decorations at this wedding were simple and elegant. There was a definite fall theme, with white pumpkins adorning the placement cards and warm colored accents. The sunset was a perfect backdrop for some more pictures, and it lit their reception beautifully.
