I have to blog about 13 weddings…there are so many beautiful bride and grooms out there that I am dying to share! I am going to start here with becky and Jake because their wedding was a complete dream to photograph. There was just excitement in the air from beginning to end and so much love to go around! The ceremony and reception was held at the Pavilion at Sandy Pines Golf Course. I am in love with this place. They recently built a house for the bride and groom to get ready in and when I say that it is amazing that is an understatement. I have never really had a venue put so much effort into making the wedding party feel relaxed and comfortable and right at home! I love it.
The details can be so important, it gives the day a feeling…and when I want a bride and groom to remember their day exactly how it was capturing the details is so very important because it will help them remember the day exactly how it was and what it felt like. Becky…what can I say one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen. Her smile really is fantastic and the love that was felt between her and her mother was truly moving. So the day started out pretty similar to any other wedding day, with hair and makeup, and getting dressed and portraits. I love all these images…they just make me smile.
Then off to the first look. If they aren’t the most in love and cute couple I don’t know who is. He kept his eyes closed but you can see that he was just grinning from ear to ear the whole time and he was completely wowed when he turned around and saw her.
The ceremony was no exception to how perfect the day was. The sun was shining and that smile on Jake’s face never left.
Then off to take some group photos and their bride and groom portraits. The golf course makes an amazing setting for the perfect pictures…No where on there is the scenery just not perfect. The bridal party was full of laughter and I didn’t hear one complaint about all the pictures that they had to take.
The details at the reception were perfect too. So much love and attention was put into everything. I am in total love with the cake and the cake topper…and the deserts from Wildflour were absolutely amazing. They were so beautiful you almost did not want to eat them. I loved the dancing and the toasting and fun! These types of weddings I wish that I could photograph every weekend. It would make me one happy photographer.
