St Augustine Elopement | Derek & Christine

Exactly 9 years from their first date, Derek & Christine decided a St Augustine wedding would be the perfect way to tie the knot.  They drove from New Jersey for an elopement with just the two of them.  Things didn’t go as originally planned but they they made the best of it and I’m so glad they did.  I met them at the local courthouse for a few shots as a newly married couple.  The day was beautiful and I loved the DIY bouquet and boutonniere Christine brought along to complete their wedding day look.  The afternoon light was perfect and they were a pleasure to photograph.  We shot these in the parking lot of the courthouse, which was a first for me and I really loved being able to create some lovely images in a not so typical location.

St Augustine Wedding | Dayana & David

Saturday was another beautiful St Augustine wedding.  When I arrived at Dayana’s hotel room at the Casa Monica, it was our first time meeting in person.  I was pleasantly surprised at how neat and tidy the hotel suite looked upon my arrival.  Most of the time, hotel suites are filled with people and miscellaneous wedding items all over the place but not this time.  She informed me that she’d had housekeeping come up to straighten the room and she also had all of her details laid out for me.  I immediately knew that it was going to be a great day!  Because the Casa Monica was their first trip away together, it only seemed fitting that’s where they’d come back to say I do.

Dayana & David’s Lightner Museum ceremony took place in the courtyard with a reception to follow at the Casa Monica.  PRI did an amazing job with the decor and I especially loved the purple uplights.  I really enjoyed working with the two of them and appreciate their trust in me to capture the day.

St Augustine Wedding | Maya & Andre

Sometimes, I get the opportunity to photograph small weddings and I really enjoy it.  Maya & Andre had a short and sweet ceremony on Valentine’s Day.  The did a butterfly release immediately following the ceremony and then we took advantage of the beautiful weather for some portraits in the Nation’s Oldest City.  Thanks you two for having me document your special day!

St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Ashley & Brad

Ashley & Brad’s St Augustine wedding last month was great.  The rainy Florida weather we’ve had this year made it’s appearance but it didn’t put a damper on their day.  Ashley is one of the sweetest, most expressive brides I’ve worked with so it was a pleasure to be able to document her and Brad’s union.  On a side note, last December,  before Ashley was engaged, she was in St Augustine with friends and walked in front of me while I was shooting formal photos for another wedding but had no idea that she would soon be engaged or who I was.  She later found me and told me about the experience so it was kind of cool that it came full circle and that I would eventually be shooting her wedding just 7 months later.

Ashley & Brad have had the challenge of a long distance relationship so it made it so much sweeter to know they would soon be together.  I really enjoyed working with them and capturing the special moments of their day.

Hammock Beach Resort Wedding | Marcy & Nhan are married!

Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast is one of my favorite local venues.  If you mix that with two incredibly fun and playful physicians who are so in love with each other and a long list of some of the best vendors around, Marcy & Nhan’s wedding is what you’ll get.

It was a beautiful June day and everything about it was full of gorgeous details at every turn.  They had a Jewish ceremony with one of the prettiest Ketubahs I’ve seen to date.  The pre wedding Ketubah signing also allowed Marcy & Nhan to do a first look and most of their pictures before the wedding, which is always nice for me.  Every turn was full of delicious eye candy and when I walked into their ballroom to see what Dan at Unforgettable Events created along with their unbelievable cake from The Sugar Suite, I was in absolute awe!  So many beautiful details!  I love it when couples choose a band at their wedding so it was really nice to work with The Leonard Brothers Band because there was no shortage of great tunes and the wedding guests had a great time.  This wedding was beyond amazing and Marcy & Nhan were an absolute pleasure to work with!  Thanks you two!

XOXO
