An Intimate Rustic Wedding | Ellen + Ryan | The Keeler Property, Jacksonville, FL

Ellen & Ryan had an intimate destination wedding at The Keeler Property, on the westside of Jacksonville.  It was my first of the new year, and I loved watching these two light up when they’re together. It is so obvious how much they love each other. They make each other laugh and you can see the mutual adoration between them. With it being a destination wedding I was unable to meet them till the day of the wedding. But with a few Skype calls, texting, and emails I felt like I had known them for ages when I met them!

The Keeler Property has a beautiful covered bridge where the ceremonies are hosted. It overlooks a small lake and has a rustic, yet ever so romantic vibe.

As Ellen held Ryan’s hand and looked into his eyes (her two favorite things about him), you could feel the happiness! They’re just so beautiful and happy together!

I love that Ellen took such care with the details … they were understated, and worked really well with the venue! She made her own bouquet, as well as the bouquets for her bridesmaids, the boutineers and the centerpieces. The Eucalyptus paired beautifully with the babies breath and popped against the bridal party’s navy attire. And her dress was absolutely stunning on her! I loved the soft lace neckline against her tan skin and her veil that completed the look.

After the ceremony, Ellen and Ryan were most excited about dancing the night away with each other! You rarely saw them leave each other’s side, and it was so sweet to see!

A Sweet Engagement- Natalie + Ryan | Jacksonville, FL

I’ve known Natalie for several years and I must say, she seems fully alive and in love with Ryan. It’s absolutely adorable!

These two lovebirds met last year. They have a shared love for the great outdoors, and their relationship is full of wonderful outdoor adventures.

The bike you see in these photos has serious sentimental meaning for Natalie and Ryan. You see, back in the fall Natalie saw this bike for sale and loved it. However, Ryan talked her out of buying it because he was planning to go back and purchase it for use in the proposal!   I’m sure you’re dying to hear the proposal story… so here it goes!

Natalie works at a Hospital and had the Christmas Eve shift. Her workday had been long and tiring, and filled with a tinge of disappointing knowing that she was missing out on her first Christmas Eve with Ryan and the rest of her family. Because she was working late, she knew she would be missing out on her favorite Christmas traditions. Being the romantic that he is, Ryan had different plans up his sleeve!

Unbeknownst to Natalie, when the early evening holiday hospital stress was at its highest, she was going to be given a quick break. Of course, this break was coordinated by Ryan and. A co-worker. Her co-worker wrapped her arm around Natalie and walked her outside.  Where Ryan right was down on one knee, with her new bike and engagement ring! Although she was utterly confused, she said YES without a doubt in her mind! Lightheaded and beaming, her Christmas was shaping up to be better than she could have ever anticipated.  After coming down from the cloud, she explained to Ryan that she has  to get back to work.  To her surprise, Ryan informed her she was now off work and it was time to head to a Christmas Eve Engagement party. A few weeks before the holiday, Ryan called Natalie’s boss and got permission for her to get off work a few hours early. Their friends and family were ready and waiting to celebrate!  This was just the start of their life adventure.

You truly can see their radiance. The way Ryan makes Natalie laugh is precious.  I’m so happy for them! They get married in April and I was disappointed to know I was already booked for their wedding date, but they are in good hands with another photographer. Luckily I had the joy of capturing their engagement photos!

Caleb & Kelly- Treasury on the Plaza Wedding in St. Augustine Florida

As a wedding photographer, few things please me more than a beautiful couple getting married at a beautiful venue. So when Caleb and Kelly told me they had selected Treasury on the Plaza in St. Augustine, I may have squealed a little.  Until their wedding, it was on my must shoot list. I had a vision of how it would be and my goodness, this space did not disappoint!  I LOVE it. It is a new favorite venue! The architecture is stunning. Between the sky high white columns, the massive circular bank vault (that they’ve converted into a bar), the shiny marble flooring and colorful up-lighting…  it makes me feel as though you’ve stepped into an upscale New York City venue.

On a blistering hot June day, with thunderstorms rolling through the sky, Caleb and Kelly began their journey as husband and wife. Their first look was in one of St. Augustine’s adorable cobblestone alley ways. Caleb’s nervous smile was adorable. You could feel the excitement. As Kelly walked up behind him for the first look,  I stepped back and captured the sweet moments of them embracing, laughing and seeing each other for the first time that day.

The way these two embrace life together, laugh together, and stay chill about everything is inspiring.  I loved capturing the raw beauty of their love that shined so brightly on their wedding day.

Their ceremony was ever so sweet with Caleb’s father as their officiant.  The sweetest tears flowed freely throughout the room as Caleb and Kelly’s vows were said, rings were exchanged and they were announced husband and wife.

After additional family photos and couple’s portraits, it was time to celebrate! The reception was a blast- the dance floor was full of energy. These two threw an awesome party from start to finish. And of course, one’s wedding day isn’t complete without a grand exit!

I have no doubt that Caleb and Kelly’s love will continue to shine as bright as their super fun sparkler farewell! Wishing you two all the best in your new journey.

Jessica & Robert – Jumbolair Wedding in Ocala Florida

The day was absolutely beautiful. Every last detail had the sweetest meaning and purpose. Jessica and Robert said their vows in the church Robert’s grandfather pastored for most of his life. The bridal suite had a sofa which resembled the  same one Jessica’s grandmother had during Jessica’s childhood years and memories. Jessica added little white paper butterflies to her sisters bouquets in memory of her grandmother.  Ever so thoughtful gifts were exchanged between Jessica and Robert before the ceremony, and the perfect first look was planned for Jessica and her dad, which happened just before the ceremony. As the church doors swung open, and Robert saw Jessica, his bride,  walking down the isle, I had chill bumps. It was the sweetest most sincere moment. From saying “I do”, dancing their first dance, toasts which brought laughter and tears, there was so much joy. And at the end of the night, one last dream came true. Robert surprised Jessica with a getaway car she had always dreamed of! Go look for yourself and watch this story unfold.

Mike & Colleen’s Wedding | The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens | Jacksonville FL

Cummer Art Museum and Garden never fails to create the perfect canvas for a beautiful garden wedding in Jacksonville. Colleen and Mike said their vows in the gardens, on the river, on the 18th of May. They were absolutely radiant as the officiant told their love story which created the sweetest wedding ceremony as their title as “best friends” turned to “Mr. & Mrs.” I smiled behind my camera all day as I captured them, their story, their bridal party, their family, their guests. Many lovely moments were captured and painted from the viewpoint of my camera. Go see for yourself!
