Historical Wedding

Last weekend Jennie and I headed to St. Augustine, FL to photograph Courtney and Michael's beach wedding. It was an amazing weekend. I've been looking forward to their wedding for many reasons, one of the big reasons is because it would be our first beach ceremony. We totally loved all the history and beauty that the city has to offer. From cobblestone one-lane streets to relaxing beaches, it was a great weekend. Nick and I even got to have some R&R through the holiday.

The day started at the salon with Courtney's hair and makeup. Take a look at the beautiful Southern front porch. It was a perfect place for Courtney and Michael to see each other for the first time. And wow, was Michael overcome with happiness! He shed some tears when he saw how beautiful Courtney was. So sweet. They were so happy to be together. Their son, Ryan, was so cute. I love the photos we got of Michael and him smooching in the parking lot before they headed downtown to meet Courtney. So precious!

We headed downtown to Flagler College and Aviles Street (the oldest street in the US) and it was a dream. Courtney and Michael were relaxed and having fun (especially when I took a spill while taking a picture of them - more about that later), the weather was perfect, the setting sun provided beautiful light, and the spots we chose for fun and intimate portraits were so picturesque. It was really fun to shoot in a new city and get creative.
Despite getting sprinkled with some Florida afternoon rain during the ceremony, it was a perfect day. Courtney and Michael's family and friends had a great time, I mean who wouldn't when you get to go to a wedding and vacation at the same time. At the end of the night, one of Courtney's bridesmaids said that she loved C&M's engagement portrait slideshow and then spent hours at my website admiring my work. It's so nice to hear that!
So, here's a peak.
