Nothing could stop this rainy day wedding from happening! Traci and Jeremy were married at the Hutchinson Island Marriott. A wedding that was supposed to be on the beach turned into an intimate ceremony under a covered patio where the guests lovingly watched the two wed. Click to see photos from their day!
I did it! I shot my last wedding before I go out on maternity leave at 35 weeks. Not without the help of Frank and Kim, who assisted me on this wedding. I am so grateful for their help on this with me. I had no idea how taxing a wedding would be on the body once you were 8 months pregnant! It's so nice to know other photographers who truly have your back and who care! :)
I'm so excited to share this wedding on the blog!
There was nothing but laughs and giggles when Nicole saw Jeff for their first look. Her face lit up as she saw his reaction--blown away. He took her hands and told her how gorgeous she looked. It was a beautiful moment between the two of them. Just another reason why I love when clients have first looks!
Their wedding at the Hutchinson Island Marriott was nothing but perfect. Nicole's bridesmaids wore deep blue chiffon dresses. Their bouquets were beautifully arranged with colors of coral, cream and green. Let's not forget about the guys--the groomsmen were dashing in their dark navy blue suits, topped off with stripped bow ties, and stopped socks!
Nicole and Jeff, thank you so much for the honor of documenting your wedding day! It was a magical day and I am so happy to have been a part of it!

shooting stars + fairytales
Their first date was spent underneath the stars. Together they gazed up at night sky and pointed out the constellations and formations in the galaxy. Alex and Melissa knew it was apparent: there something was twinkling between the two of them as well.
As a young girl, Melissa could get lost in the story of Cinderella and dreamed about her own fairytale wedding. Eventually, both Alex and Melissa’s mutual love for shooting stars shot them into a fairytale all their own. Finally, Melissa had found her Prince Charming. And on Saturday, I had the privilege of documenting their wedding.
Their fairytale wedding took place at their church, while their festivities were at the Hutchinson Island Marriott in Stuart, FL. Melissa looked just like a Princess in her sweetheart neckline gown. Alex had the best time twirling her on the dance floor! These two are a sweet, solid pair. They understand the covenant of marriage and have families that support and are encouraging them to cultivate a strong marriage together.
Melissa and Alex, thank you for allowing me the privilege of documenting your day! May you build a marriage that will leave a legacy :)
