DESTINATION

Photographing this colorful spring wedding in 30A Florida was a highlight of the season for me. The couple chose vibrant, lush florals, which were beautifully done by Brian and the Myrtie Blue team. Everything was exquisitely planned and executed by Avis and her team at Peach and Pearl Events. A clear top tent allowed light to filter through onto the florals and illuminate the ceremony and reception space in the most delicate way.

Three postponements. Two venues across two countries. One epic wedding weekend that finally came together.

After multiple reschedules and the tumultuous year of uncertainty, Maria and Levi finally got their dream wedding, though it looked much different than what they imagined when they originally got engaged more than two years prior. And this epic destination wedding weekend came together in only four months’ time.

Due to covid, Maria + Levi had been forced to postpone their date three times, and after the third date fell through with their original venue, the couple decided to change everything and move their wedding to the first place they ever vacationed together, Harbour Island Bahamas.

A beautiful summer day, a couple whose love for one another is completely palpable, and a surprise rain shower made this Alys Beach engagement session quite memorable. When these two told me they spend their summers on the beaches of 30a Florida, we knew it would be the perfect backdrop to capture their engagement photos.

Spring is my favorite time of year for sessions, and Railroad Park was showing off for us on this beautiful afternoon. We found the perfect spot that overlooks the city for their second look, and golden hour on the hillside was magical. The roses were in bloom, and I’m still dreaming of how fragrant they were. What a perfect backdrop to document their love.
