Lauren’s wedding, from ceremony to reception, was absolute perfection. Despite the heat and rush of getting ready, she was completely peaceful and composed with quiet anticipation. The wedding took place in the adorably simple and charming Seaside Chapel. As she made her way down the isle towards Ward, grinning from ear to ear, Lauren was beaming!  Just as in every little girl’s dream, the bells of the wooden chapel rang as the newlyweds enjoyed the company of their family and friends on the front lawn. Following the ceremony, the guests made their way to the evening pool-side reception. Although the band had a wonderful selection of songs that kept Lauren and Ward’s family and friends on their toes constantly, everyone made sure to steal away enough time to savor the exquisite gourmet cuisine (It was beyond delicious!!). Afterwards, the bride & groom made a fantastic decision to do their private photographs on the beach in the water. This was so much fun! Lauren was not one bit timid about  lying in the sand, standing in the ocean, or doing whatever necessary to make a beautiful shot, and the photographs were definitely worth the soggy dress at the end! They were an absolute delight to work with. After they said goodnight to us, we watched them stroll hand and hand down the beach lit only by the moon. Meeting Ward and Lauren and watching them together was priceless. He didn’t merely love her; he cherished and treasured her. I am confident that they will have a blessed marriage!


tonya & eber = dance dance revolution & LOVE

from the moment we first met this couple we knew they would be a blast. they contacted us more than a year ago about doing their engagement and wedding photography. they are one of our local couples that we have shot weddings for. one thing about tonya and eber is that they dance, i don’t mean go out and dance at a local bar. i mean they DANCE, like dancing with the stars dancing. when we shot their engagement session they were dancing and at the wedding they danced just about the entire reception, except to eat. they did a “dancing with the stars” skit, in which they danced and were then judged by friends posing as “dancing with the stars” judges. it was a riot! eber and tonya even incorperated dancing into the tossing of the bouquet. another cool thing, tonya is a swimmer. she swam at fsu. we were able to take a few photos in a pool that was closed down. well this pool happened to be the pool tonya used to work at, so i thought that was pretty cool. thanks eber and tonya. we had a great time photographing you guys and wish you guys the best of luck!

lizzie + tony = LOVE

Despite the harrowing clouds and threatening showers only an hour and a half before the wedding, by the time Lizzie made her grand entrance down the isle, the sky was as radiant as she was! This couple incorporated beautiful Catholic traditions that were very important to Lizzie. Tony also brought in some details that were special to him and his family – his father wore a cowboy hat and boots! This classy beach-front wedding culminated into a spectacular celebration with vibrant music and vivacious dancing. The reception was absolutely non-stop energy, and the dance floor was never empty – from great-grandmothers to toddlers. The evening ended with their guests lining the boardwalk, holding sparklers as the couple paraded off. Lizzie and Tony were a delight to work with!
