We always feel so fortunate to have such fun, wonderful couples to work with. But every so often, a special couple comes along that you connect with on a different level. We feel that way about Seth & Lisa, even though we only were able to meet them a few times before their wedding.

When Seth and Lisa travelled down from their home in Washington, DC for their engagement photos at Amelia Island Plantation, we could see the spark between them. They are so playful and affectionate that we really didn’t have to do much posing with them. The way they were together, naturally, was exactly what we wanted to capture!

That special bond was even more evident during their wedding at Amelia Island Plantation, when Seth saw Lisa walking down the aisle, escorted by her parents, wearing delicate lace wedding dress. The ceremony at Walker’s Landing overlooked the marshes and was attended by an intimate group of friends and family from all over the country. One of the unique elements of their wedding was a lasso ceremony by Lisa’s parents. The lasso symbolizes that they are joined together forever in love.

The reception at Walker’s Landing was filled with beautiful light as the sun set over the marshes. A table at the back of the room displayed old family photos and included two sets of monkeys, one representing Seth and Lisa’s wedding and another representing Seth’s proposal to Lisa, a tradition that goes back to when his father proposed to his mother using a handmade sock monkey. A nearby candy station featured a selection of tasty treats for the guests to take home.

Thanks to the DJ from DeLand Entertainment, the party really kicked into high gear. Old college friends and new family came together to dance the night way, making it impossible to not get caught up in the celebration.

Seth and Lisa, you are truly a beautiful couple and we wish you nothing but the best as you start your new life together as husband and wife. Thank you for letting us share your special day with you!

    Thanks Robert! I’m editing the rest of the photos now and I just had to pause and share one of the wedding day memories with Matt. It was the brother of the bride’s toast, which was so hilarious! Such a wonderful couple and their friends and family are just as kind and sincere as they are! Loved this wedding!
