Emily found us because she and her best friend Lauren were suite-mates with my little sister Amelia in the UCF Adpi house. :) Back in the day we did a session with Amelia and her 3 roommates as her birthday gift, not having any idea that some day we’d end up photographing all three girls’ weddings in the future!
I have so much love for this wedding. If you close your eyes and think of the quintessential Floridian wedding, Emily and Daniel’s photos should pop up in your mind! Gorgeous couple, palm trees galore, perfect cool breeze from the beach view, a mosquito here and there… And there and there. ;) Emily and Daniel’s ceremony and reception were held at Tarpon Lodge in Pine Island, which provided the perfect “old Florida” feel Emily wanted as the scene for her wedding.
Shortly after the rehearsal on their wedding eve, Emily and Daniel’s families and bridal party (and photographers!) boarded a ferry to their rehearsal dinner…
… Yep- We took a ferry to dinner. :)
When we got off the ferry we were in Cabbage Key, which supposedly is where Jimmy Buffet wrote Cheeseburger in Paradise. We didn’t have cheeseburgers, but I can most definitely vouch for the “paradise” part. :)
Emily and Daniel’s families were some of the sweetest we’ve met yet, and they love the heck out of this couple!
Ever been to Cowboys in Orlando? You can thank Daniel’s family! :)
I’m still swooning over all of Emily’s details!
We lucked out with Emily and Daniel seeing each other before their ceremony– We had way too many photo ops that would have gone to waste! :)
Is that not the most perfect bouquet you’ve ever seen? It has Lee Forrest Design written all over it!
Gotta love a bride photo bomber. ;)
Too many favorites with this wedding, but this one’s up there! ;)
Recognize Root favorite Lauren Paige on the left? :)
So excited to show y’all the rest tomorrow! :)
