Jessica & Demetrius came down from Atlanta this past weekend for their engagement session! Though Tropical Storm Beryl was on the way and threatened to bring wind and rain, we were blessed sunny skies for most of their session! I can’t get over how cute their first outfits were! They also brought some of their wedding details to use as props for this part of the session. Really can’t wait to see all of this come together later this summer!

Then we headed over to the place where it all began – Jacksonville University! It was so sweet to see them reminiscing about when they met and their time spent at JU. As much as I looooove how cute they looked in the first half of their session, I think the second half is my favorite because it was such a meaningful place for them. We’re looking forward to seeing them build more memories at the Casa Marina this summer! : )

It was an interesting weekend as Tropical Storm Beryl made a beeline for Florida, but Saturday was a beautiful, sunny day in Daytona for Sarah & Glenn’s wedding at LPGA International! Here’s a sneak peek from the end of the night! More to come after they return from their honeymoon! : )

We had a great trip to New York last week, and one of the highlights was meeting up with Kerri & Corey for their engagement photos in Poughkeepsie! We did a walkthrough of their venue and can’t wait for their 4th of July wedding on the Hudson River! Between the stunning venue, the fireworks, and our gorgeous couple it’s going to be an incredible celebration!

We just love the locations that Kerri and Corey chose for their engagement photos! The Hudson Valley is so tranquil and beautiful! We’re so glad that we were able to meet up with them while they were in New York for part of the summer! Maybe if we’re lucky we’ll be able to visit them when they head back to Germany (wishful thinking!). : )

Ashley & Zoiner’s wedding at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club was a fete to remember! The ceremony was full of vibrant colors under a cloudless sky. As we headed to the reception, we were surprised by a supermoon illuminating the sky! It was such a spectacular sight and such a blessing to see this gorgeous moon on Ashley & Zoiner’s wedding day! The rest of the evening was full of fun and surprises with a mariachi band to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and everyone dancing the night away (and let me tell you, there were some very talented and entertaining dancers at this wedding!). It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for two truly amazing people! Congratulations Ashley & Zoiner! : )

Rachel & Dylan chose the charming coastal town of Port St. Joe for their destination wedding. Everyone gathered at a gorgeous beach house for a ceremony in the sand followed by a reception under the stars! The colors were coral and sand with pops of bold tropical colors from the flowers – perfect for a destination wedding! But one of our favorite details were the custom cuff links from Etsy that were made from bullets! That’s something we have never seen before, and you have to admit it’s pretty awesome!

We also love that everyone was seated at long tables at the reception, setting the tone for an intimate evening. There were heartfelt speeches and moments of laughter (and some very entertaining stuff on the dance floor). When the evening finally came to an end, we were sad to leave. It was such a perfect wedding full of happiness and love and everyone was so wonderful! Rachel & Dylan’s wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful! Thank you both for letting us share your joy! : )

As Tracy got ready for the wedding in her suite high above the St. Johns River downtown, storm clouds could be seen in the distance. Everyone continually checked the Weather Channel for updates, but Tracy remained calm as could be. No matter what the weather brought, she would be marrying Dennis, and nothing was going to ruin her day.

We made our way to the Haskell Building, and there was a break from the rain. Tracy & Dennis decided to do a first-look before the ceremony, so we knew at least that we would get a few photos outside before the storms return. We picked out a quiet little spot underneath a willow tree. Tracy quietly approached Dennis until telling him to turn around. They were both speechless for a few seconds, taking each other in and smiling, before finally moving towards each other to hug. You could tell that they were both so happy that their wedding day had finally arrived!

A couple drops of rain started to fall, and we rushed inside. Thankfully, the rain didn’t last for long and held off long enough for the ceremony to be performed outside. As Tracy & Dennis sealed their vows with a kiss, the sun appeared from behind the clouds, as if to give its blessing!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day for Ashley & Zoiner’s wedding at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club! As if the day wasn’t perfect enough, the evening sky presented a spectacular display of the moon – the closest it will be to Earth in 2012! What a beautiful gift!

Matt and I couldn’t agree on what to post for a sneak peek, so we each chose one! Can’t wait to share more of this beautiful wedding soon! : )

Ashley & Louis’s wedding at Nocatee’s Crosswater Hall was one of the sweetest weddings we’ve ever been part of! I don’t think we’ve ever photographed a wedding with quite so many tears! Their wedding was full of so much emotion, and seeing Louis fight back his tears as Ashley walked toward him with her own tears streaming, it was hard not to just break down and cry myself! So with a few deep breaths, I clicked away and captured the most precious wedding photos of two people very much in love with one another!

Nocatee is a gorgeous place for a wedding! Ashley said when she saw it, she KNEW it was the place she wanted to get married! The wood beams inside Crosswater Hall give it a quaint and intimate feel, and the windows that line the room fill it with gorgeous light! Oh, and you just have to loooooove the Bride’s Room with a huge mirror that goes up to the ceiling! What a perfect place for the bride to get ready!

A beautiful setting, a perfect spring wedding, and a happy ending! That’s what fairytales are made of! Congratulations Ashley & Louis! : )
