I want it!
Kristin & Josh’s wedding day turned out to be gorgeous. As a wedding photographer, I was in awe of the details and colors. Her dress was displayed beautifully which made for some really great shots. I just loved working with this couple and capturing the emotions from everyone that was in attendance on their special day.

We met in college through a mutual friend.
Josh’s birthday always falls during the time that his family vacations in Daytona. While we were in Daytona, he was opening his birthday presents and on his last present, he pulled out a ring and proposed!
We wanted something casual and a little bit country. I did a lot of searching on Pinterest to find what would look best with our venue and go with the theme. Also, aqua/blues and neutrals are my favorite colors!
Seeing each other, for the first time, at the other ends of the aisle was so exciting.
Incredible! It went by so fast, but we wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Do research to find out what style of photography you want for your pictures. Don’t choose a photographer based just on price and always ask around…sometimes the best reviews and suggestions come by word of mouth.
I found my dress at Love, a bridal boutique in Jacksonville Beach. I wanted something simple and classic, but still fun. I tried on a bunch of dresses, first I thought I wanted pure white, lace, and fitted throughout. It’s always a good idea to try on different styles because after I tried on what I thought I wanted, I realized that it wasn’t comfortable and really wasn’t what I wanted. When I tried on my dress, it just felt right!
Kelly was great to work with! She had to deal with all of the groomsmen who’s quote of the day was “that’s what she said” and she even joked along with them! 🙂 She listened to our suggestions and worked with us to get the best pictures.
We did not see each other before the wedding. We both wanted to keep it a surprise and not see each other until the ceremony. It was hard to not see or talk to each other all day, but that’s what made the day even more exciting!
Don’t stress! A photographer always wants to take the best pictures possible for your wedding day. Do research on what styles/poses you like and dislike. Don’t be afraid to give ideas of something you may want, but also be willing to listen to the photographer- they have most likely done a wedding or two and have more experience with preparing and working for big events.
Pinterest and Hobby Lobby were my favorites! Hobby Lobby always has good deals and they always had decorations that I was looking for to go along with the rustic theme…and I can’t say anything bad about Pinterest, it’s just the best! 🙂 I also bought my jewelry and garter from Etsy.
I was most anxious about everything coming together in the end. At our venue, we had to bring in outside vendors for everything, so planning a timeline was a little stressful. It all worked out in the end though!
I think we had a smaller sized wedding party and everyone seemed to cooperate well and listen to direction. We had a few large family photos that were harder to get everyone on the same page all at once, but that happens with large groups and we still were able to get the photos without too many delays.
What kind of food was served at your reception?
First dance: Hey Pretty Girl by Kip Moore
Mother-son: That’s What Mamas Do by Jason Matthews
We went on a cruise to Key West, Grand Cayman and Jamaica…so much fun!
