This was our second-ever wedding at the Tarpon Lodge in Pineland, Florida. Located near Jimmy Buffet’s inspiration for “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” if palm trees and calming waters are your thing, this place really is paradise.

The forecast leading up to this wedding was not looking good. Like, we’re talking rain chances in the 90+ percentile. Adelie told me she asked her venue coordinator what the rain backup location was, and the coordinator just replied, “It’s not gonna rain.” When Adelie asked again, she got the same answer and decided not to push it. Sure enough, even though all of our weather sources were reporting 100% chances of rain for ceremony time, it didn’t rain.

The second they were pronounced man and wife, the sky turned a deep gray and we booked it with the couple to get some photos before the sky opened up. Adelie was an absolute dream bride, and even though thunder got increasingly loud, she stayed out for photos until it started pouring. We had an umbrella on hand and she got a little wet, but the photos we got were some of my favorite of the year! :)

Adelie and Will, you were both an absolute dream. Thanks for having us, and we wish you both the absolute best!!

Hooray! We’ve finally made it to post-surgery blog posts. ;)

Brittney and Keith had been together nearly 7 years when she first contacted us! A true Disney fan, Brittney knew her whole life she’d want a Disney wedding, so it was really special seeing her lifelong dream become a reality! So many of Brittney and Keith’s friends and family came down to watch them get married at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, and have their reception at the Boardwalk Inn’s Atlantic Dance Hall. Those have become my two favorite venues during these crazy humid Orlando days! :)

Brittney and Keith, enjoy your preview!

Once upon a time, I met Nick. And on Nick’s birthday, I met his best friend Nate. <3

Nick’s family is full of wonderful, amazing people. His grandparents greet you like long lost friends, his mom has treated me like one of her own since the day we met. His sister is a professional acrobat. His cousin looks like he just stepped off the pages of GQ, but is also one of the kindest people you’ll meet. You get the picture!

When Nick’s Uncle Ron asked us to photograph his wedding, we jumped at the chance! Uncle Ron and Carol were married at Pawley’s Island in South Carolina, where this was the view from the porch of their beach house. Their wedding was so incredibly intimate and emotional, with maybe only 10 people in attendance. We even got to watch Ron and his friends build the arbor! Everything was just perfect.

Dan not only escorted Carol down the aisle, but helped her pick out that incredible dress.

I feel like I know Sarah thanks to following her on social media after she booked us for her wedding! I’m beyond bummed we didn’t get a chance to meet, since her wedding fell after my great gallbladder debacle, but I’m hoping we can on an inevitable future Disney trip!

Sarah, your day looked beautiful, and I’m so bummed I missed out! Enjoy your preview photos!!
