Watercolor Wonderland | Laura + Bobby

Sometimes you look at wedding photos and you feel like you really get a sense of how everything looked and felt. Other times you see the wedding photos and you just wish you were there. Laura and Bobby’s Watercolor Wonderland of a wedding was the latter. If someone looks through all of the wedding photos below and then tries to tell us they don’t feel like they missed out… we’ll call them a liar.

From getting ready in the rooms to getting down on the dance floor this wedding really seems to have it all. For starters, Laura had ten beautiful bridesmaids! This means ten dresses, hairstyles, make up sessions, and lots and lots of pictures. We don’t often shoot weddings with such a big wedding party so we took some creative liberties with this group. They had such an energy about them. So much personality and of course, more love for the bride and groom than any two people could possible comprehend.

The entire wedding and celebration is no doubt one for the books. Or in today’s modern world, one for the boards. (We’re talking about Pinterest.)  The flowers hanging in the trees created the perfect backdrop for the ceremony which took place in front of friends and family. Every detail was well thought out and perfectly executed. It’s hard to believe it’s over.

Like Laura and Bobby, we’re so grateful for these wedding photos so we can remember their big day and just how big of a wedding whirlwind it was.

Tara & Chris | WaterColor Wedding

Tara and Chris were married just last month at the Watercolor Inn & Resort, which is only one of  THE coolest and most beautiful beach resorts ever.  Their ceremony was held at the picturesque Western Lake Park, with a reception following in Watercolor’s newest wedding venue, the Lake House.  If you haven’t seen this incredible venue yet, then you’re in for a treat!  Completely breathtaking.

We absolutely loved being Tara and Chris’s Watercolor wedding photographers.  Not only are these two madly in love and adorable, but Chris’s sweet daughter (and flower girl!), Claire, was an absolute doll!  Beautiful wedding, beautiful setting and a beautiful day made this a great way to kick off 2014!

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!

Elizabeth + Chris | Watercolor Wedding

This morning we’re sharing an oldie . . . but definitely a goodie!  Elizabeth & Chris’ Watercolor wedding took place on St. Patrick’s Day in 2012 – just one of many that are just too pretty not to share.  We’re digging up several “oldie-goodies” that we can’t wait to feature in the coming weeks!

This sweet couple said ‘I Do’ at Watercolor’s Western Lake Park, with their reception following at the nearby Boathouse.  There’s just something about being a Watercolor wedding photographer that gets us excited; something that might have to do with the naturally gorgeous backdrop of one of 30A’s most amazing beach communities.

We had a blast getting to know Elizabeth & Chris (and what better way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day than being a part of such a fun celebration?).  Thanks to their entire team for pulling their great wedding together!

a family reunion…..

for the first time, we had the opportunity to photograph a family reunion get together in Seagrove Beach Florida.  luckily the rain had left us with a beautiful winter day for some frolicking on the beach before they gathered for dinner.  this was a beautiful family full of adorable, lively children (and adults, too).  they were such a joy!  hopefully we can be a part of their annual get together!

ryan’s wedding faves from 2011……

They stuck with and jumped through hoops for us as we went threw out our wacky ideas, went through several design phases, made revisions of this-that-and-everything, and were just as excited and inspired as we were every step of the way.  To Jared, Joel & Ashley, Anthony and his team…. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!  We have loved working with and building friendships with you all over the past few years and can’t wait to get started on the blog!  So, without further adieu, here are the details for the scavenger hunt & biggest fan contest.
