Jacksonville Golf and Country Club weddingPINIMAGE


Jacksonville Golf and Country Club | Jacksonville, Florida


I always start my day shooting the details, the primping and all the moments in between. My favorite part this morning had to be the shoes (her deep red bejeweled Badgley Mischka heels were awesome) and while shooting the “jumping on the bed” shot one of her bride’s maid fell off – it was hilarious and I’ll share that one Facebook. Ashley and Sean planned their outdoor wedding at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club and despite a sudden downpour, they kept their spirits up. By the time we were ready for their first look the rain was gone and the overcast sky made the best lighting. Ashley and Sean are a carefree couple with the best sense of humor. They made the day fun to shoot and knew how to throw a party. Their reception was complete with a live band, photo booth and frosting on their faces. I hope this energy stays with them forever and know there will never be a dull moment.

The Riverside Pavilion | Daytona Beach, Florida


The morning we arrived at Kari’s parent’s house, everything was already in full swing. The girls were curling, laughing and couldn’t be more excited – their energy was contagious! Kari and Chris choice to do a first look at a nearby park. It was a beautiful setting on the intracoastal, but windy was an understatement. Poor Kari’s care was whipping everywhere, however this couple were total pros and didn’t let it bother them a bit. My favorite part about shooting Kari and Chris was their enthusiasm and pure love for one another. They are a perfect match. They joined family and friends at The Riverside Pavilion; a charming riverfront location tucked away on the banks of the Halifax River. It was a joyous occasion and truly a blending of two families. I look forward to keeping up with Kari and Chris and wish them years of happiness.

Sugar Mill Garden WeddingPINIMAGE


Sugar Mill Gardens | Port Orange, Florida


Heather and Nathan dreamed of an outdoor wedding. That is exactly what they got this November at the beautiful Dunlawton Plantation and Sugar Mill Gardens. This historical site has 10 acres of lush botanical gardens, ancient ruins and a canopy of oak trees. Their ceremony was sweet and included a unity tree ceremony to symbolize the act of putting down roots, longevity and the strengths in their marriage. The couple’s reception was at the Riverside Pavilion located on the Halifax river. My favorite part of the evening was Nathan’s dance for the garter and Heather’s reaction.

Hammock Beach Resort | Palm Coast, Florida


Tiffany and David’s wedding was a complete destination get-a-way. Family members traveled to Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast to spend the week enjoying the Florida sunshine and celebrating this amazing couple. I think that spoke to the tone of the entire day – family and fun. When I arrived at the bridal suite the room was filled with champagne, hairspray and anticipation. Before I knew it, Tiffany was walking down the aisle with her dad and marrying the love of her life! The best part was her dad misspeaking when the officiant asked who gives this women away and him saying “Cheryl’s mom and I.” Everyone was laughing and I was so happy I caught their reaction. Their vows were full of humor and expressions of their deep love for one another. There were so many things about this wedding that truly inspired me – the property is set along the Atlantic Ocean with rolling green golf courses. I couldn’t have asked for better lighting as we took the bridal party pictures out on the adirondack chairs and the couple’s portraits. Tiffany’s wedding dress was gorgeous designed by lunss and the back couldn’t be ignored. The very last shot before we joined everyone for the reception is by far one of my favorite of the year. David and Tiffany, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of one of the happiest days of your life.

Serenata Beach Club | Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida


Nicole and Alex met in high school their sophomore year and did the long distance relationship in college -they endured the time apart put lots of miles driving back and forth. A little over 10 years of dating when Alex proposed in Destin, Florida on the beach at sunrise.  The couple now live in Michigan, but wanted their wedding to be close to home and family. From the very beginning of the Nicole and Alex’s day everything was effortless. With the help of a great dining room table and natural lighting I took some of my favorite detail shots ever. The flowers were gorgeous with pops of red and who knew a simple tea cup could make such a huge impact. Nicole and Alex celebrated their ceremony and reception at the Serenata Beach Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. The evening was full of love, great music and non-stop dancing. Thank you Nicole and Alex for letting me be part of your special day.
