Today I am thankful to share this absolutely stunning wedding. The Ca’ d’Zan at the Ringling Museum is a dream, standing on the top tower as the sun slipped down along the horizon and the cool breeze blowing all around us felt like a fairytale. It is easy to lose yourself there and forget that you are in Florida, it feels much more like a castle or estate in Europe.  Stephanie and Branden are such a sweet couple, it was beautiful to witness their laughter and tears together. They are also professional dancers, I had goosebumps during their first dance absolutely in awe, such a great pairing of love and talent. I could go on and on but I’ll let the pictures give you a peek into their special day…

SO. MUCH. vibrant color and happiness and laughter and beauty – Anita + Stash’s wedding weekend with their Indian ceremony and reception at the historic Casa Monica in Saint Augustine was overflowing with it all. Anita wore her mother’s sari for the ceremony and then changed into a stunning emerald green set for the reception and she was absolutely stunning in both, I could have photographed her for days and days and not gotten tired of it. The henna, the color, the outfits, the love – I had happiness overload all day capturing it all and am thrilled to share a bit of it with you today.

I’m excited to share a peek into Anita and Stash’s beautiful wedding weekend. They started the celebrations with traditional vows and a fun night of dancing at the Treasury on the Plaza. The second night guests enjoyed a casual gathering and henna and the third day the celebrated with an indian ceremony and of course more dancing and fun.  Saint Augustine is such a quaint wonderful town it was the perfect setting for such a wonderful weekend. Stay tuned for part two of this post, it’s a good one!

There are not many things in life I love more than floating in bright blue crystal clear water somewhere tropical so when Kailiegh and Kyle told me about their wedding in the Bahamas I couldn’t wait to catch the next plane down and capture it for them (and float in the water a bit too). There are so many things that made their wedding weekend incredible – the fresh caught fish at every meal, unreal sunsets, amazing family and friends, gorgeous decor… but the thing that I loved most about all of it was Kaileigh’s contagious joyful laughter. When she laughs, joy just radiates out and you cannot help but feel it too. And there was plenty of it all weekend. Hope town harbor is so quaint and inviting and such a fun place for wedding celebrations (the night ended with fireworks and guests doing cannon balls into the pool fully clothed!) here is a little peek into their incredible Bahamas getaway.
