Jaan + Tom: Palm Beach Elopement

[ 12.08.16 | PALM BEACH, FL ]

On November 13th Jaan contacted me about their big day, and throughout our planning and discussions one thing was clear – she was head over heals for Tom and couldn’t wait to marry him. In one quick month Jaan, Tom and their families planned this beautiful elopement. When I arrived at Jaan’s parent’s house I was greeted by a handful of her close family. I learned of their cultures and of some of the meaningful traditions that would be incorporated into the day. The couple did a quick first look, revealing Jaan’s gorgeous red dress, then we scooted on over to Palm Beach for some portraits. These two were absolutely adorable and totally rocked their first dip! We headed back to the clubhouse where so many close friends and family awaited. During the ceremony you could feel the love in the room as each message was delivered to the bride and groom. The nuptials were so sweet – and my favorite part had to be Tom finding his name within the Henna. He was not allowed to kiss his bride until he found it! After they said I do, Jaan & Tom were so gracious and went around greeting and taking pictures with each of their guests. There were toasts and dances (Tom and his mom seriously had me in tears) and when it came time to cut the cake Jaan and Tom invited their parents up with them. The two families truly became one with their union. It was so moving! Jaan & Tom I’m so glad you swiped right! Congratulations!!

Jamie + Adam: Waldo’s Secret Garden Wedding

[ 9.24.16 | VERO BEACH, FL ]
When Jamie and Adam got engaged, I was so surprised and excited that they thought of me to be their wedding photographer! We had a blast taking engagement photos and I talked with Jamie often about all the plans for their big day. On the morning of, friends and family gathered at the rustic venue, Waldo’s Secret Garden, and brought all of Jamie’s ideas to life. While getting ready, the rain came and the rain left, the Seminoles won, and Jamie shared their love story with me all over again. It was beautiful. 

Jamie and Adam – I am so happy you have found each other! From the First Look till the very last sparkler went out, your day was so special. I’m absolutely thrilled to share these photos!
