Wes + Kelly | Watercolor, Florida Wedding

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best things.  Take, for example, the very sweet, very intimate, and very simple beach wedding ceremony of Wes and Kelly.  Held on the gorgeous beach of the Watercolor Inn and Resort, their Florida wedding ceremony was truly a beautiful celebration of love.

Wes and Kelly opted for Ryan to capture just their wedding ceremony, where they were surrounded by those closest to them — their parents and their children.  We were honored that this awesome couple chose us to photograph their beautiful wedding day!

Nicole + Craig | 30A Wedding

You know that old saying that states “good things come in small packages”?  Well, we firmly believe that great-amazing-sweet-super-lovely things come in small packages.  Like intimate weddings where the focus is truly on the couple committing their love to one another.  We love being a part of these smaller, yet super-close-to-the-heart-incredible displays of commitment, and Nicole and Craig’s 30A wedding takes the cake for radiating love all over the place!  🙂

When Nicole first contacted us, she stole our hearts right away with her answers on what we consider to be a pretty simple contact form on our website.  From learning of her father’s passing just 3 years prior of a brain tumor, and her subsequent passion to support research and raise awareness for the cause, to her number one passion being her family and friends — we were instantly smitten.  Oh, and points were definitely won with her very accurate description of what attracted her to us in the first place:

“I am in love with the way you so artistically and beautifully capture the most intimate moments between couples. I love that you all seem so genuine, down-to-earth and spirited. Without even having met you guys, I like you already. :)”

The feeling was definitely mutual when we finally met Nicole and Craig for the first time.  We liked them a lot.  Which is why we were so darn heartbroken when we all learned of the impending Hurricane Isaac, who thought he’d put a big ol’ damper on the festivities.  Luckily, Nicole and Craig were so easygoing that we were able to split their coverage into two days, and capture their sweet beach wedding ceremony — sans hurricane.

Nicole and Craig’s intimate weekday wedding took place in a very private ceremony on Seacrest Beach, which is located between Rosemary and Alys Beaches on 30A.  Opting for our ‘petite collection’ was a perfect option for them, as it captures the sweetest moments of a smaller event — like vow renewals and initiate wedding ceremonies — while still affording the couple the opportunity to walk away with professional, artistic (and, ahem, beautiful) wedding photos.

Many thanks to our friend, Jamie Gummere of Blush Beauty Lounge, for the gorgeous job on Nicole’s makeup!

Katie + Michael | Seaside 30A Weddings

We are *thisclose* to getting all of our happy 2012 weddings up on the blog!  Hey, better late than never, right?  And with the sun shining like crazy today — bright, blue skies and all — we thought Katie and Michael’s sunny and full-of-blue-skies Seaside wedding (say that five times fast) would be perfect for today’s feature!

There’s kind of a common theme among our wedding couples, and it’s that they all seem to have these charming, adorable, lovely, happy little personalities.  We’re pretty sure every wedding couple that’s sent our way is a match made in heaven.  Katie and Michael are no exception, as they were just adorable and awesome and all of the other “aboves”.

Their intimate ceremony took place overlooking the beach in Seaside, with a dinner reception immediately following at the nearby — and incredibly phenomenal — Cafe 30A restaurant.  If you’ve never experienced Cafe 30A, go now.  You won’t be disappointed.  They offer a private room upstairs that’s just perfect for more intimate wedding receptions.

Heather, of Defining Moments Weddings & Events, did an incredible job, as always, coordinating Katie and Michael’s wedding day, and putting them into the hands of some of very talented wedding friends.  Florals by the Sea never fails to disappoint in the area of design, decor and flowers, and Sweet for Sirten‘s cake was a perfect compliment to the amazing food.  Fantastic job by all and here’s to many years of happiness and sunshine, Katie and Michael!

Erin + Will | Panama City Beach Wedding Photographers

Erin and Will’s Panama City Beach wedding was a great example of how to do a beach wedding in style.  Nautical touches in the decor and navy on the girls were just what they envisioned for their beach wedding.  They exchanged vows in the sand underneath a gorgeous bamboo arbor, and followed with a rockin’ reception at the nearby Boatyard restaurant where guests (including one very sweet grandmother!) boogied down all night!

HUGE thanks to the very sweet and talented coordinator, Kimberly, of Elegant Beginnings for sending this sweet couple our way!  And to everyone else on their team who made this fun couple’s wedding a reality — you all rock!

Erica & Miles Wedding + Next Day Session | Carillon Wedding Photographers

We met Erica and Miles a while back and immediately hit it off — they’re hip, laid back, fun and cool, so it was an obvious fit from the start.  😉  Having their canine kiddos as part of the celebration was a huge priority, so we were pretty excited to include them in both their wedding day and super-romantic, fun next day session.

Their beach wedding and reception was coordinated by the talented girls of Carillon Weddings®, and had a rockstar team of pros who helped make it all happen.  You can’t go wrong with Townsend Catering, Events by Nouveau, Gulf Talent Services, Confections on the Coast, and makeup artist Robin Klag!

Jenni + McClain Engagement & Wedding | Destin Wedding Photographers

This gorgeous couple was not only fun to work with, they were SUPER sweet, too!  We headed over to the Destin Harbor for Jenni & McClain’s engagement photos and knew right away our relationship was going to be a match made in wedding photography heaven.

Their wedding ceremony took place on the beach, with a reception following at the Bluewater Bay Sunset Club.  The girls, in their gorgeous terra cotta-colored dresses, were even prettier carrying their beautifully styled bouquets from Myrtie Blue (who also provided all the rest of the wedding gorgeousness, too!).  Paradise Cuisine and Sweet for Sirten made sure everyone’s bellies were happy, while DJ Vladi kept the dance floor alive and hoppin’.  Thanks to the always awesome coordination by Savoir Faire Weddings, the guests and new Mr. & Mrs. definitely had a blast!  In fact, we have the pictures to prove it.

Rachael + Chuck | Seaside, Florida Wedding Photographers

We’re featuring another blast from wedding’s past: It’s Rachael & Chuck’s gorgeous Seaside beach wedding!  With their ceremony taking place on the beach with Chuck’s son Caden and closest friends and family by their side, this wedding couldn’t have been any sweeter.  Throw in beautiful flowers from Florals by the Sea, gorgeous lace and seersucker details, coordination by Heather (who at the time coordinated through Seaside, but now owns Defining Moments Weddings & Events), and you have yourself a wedding that serves as a Seaside Florida wedding photographer’s dream!

We loved Rachael & Chuck and truly enjoyed getting to know them in the months leading up to the wedding.  We were even able to spend a little time with them the following day for a ‘next day session’, which they used as an opportunity to capture some great beach family photos with Caden.  The last photo we’ve included is one of our favorites of the two of them.  Fun couple, gorgeous wedding and a beautiful family – what more can we say?
