Before I can tell you about Shadai and Maurice's stupid incredible Hard Rock Punta Cana Destination Wedding I have to take you back to the beginning. Way, way back to the beginning because these two love bugs actually met in elementary school. They took it slow for a...
April and Douglas’ Golden Ocala Wedding
When April and Douglas first reached out to me for their Golden Ocala Wedding we instantly bonded over the Florida Gators. Because really, what else do you talk about in the fall? But, I’m pretty sure it’s the reason they chose me to be their wedding photographer. In fact, I met Douglas the first time at the Gator spring game and it’s basically been a fun friendship ever since. I literally walked up to him and said Dougie Fresh! Which I found out is his nickname among friends… I mean he even had it stitched into his custom-made suit. (Photo for proof below!)
They were married at the stunning Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club and it was truly one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve attended. April did an amazing job with their color scheme and she had so. many. flowers. It was a photographers dream and I wish every wedding had flowers like this. We even lucked out with a mostly cloudy day so the bride and groom were able to take advantage of all the gorgeous photography locations at the club and around the golf course.
Douglas saw April for the first time during the ceremony and there was so much real emotion there. He started to tear up and I’m pretty sure everyone else did too. The reception was also a blast. Their Golden Ocala wedding was also the first to use my Platinum Photobooth and I was pretty stoked about that, so were their guests! The entire reception was filled with so much laughter and dancing. Let me tell you, their families know how to party and get down. I don’t think the dance floor let up at all through the night.
Thank you so much, April and Dougie Fresh for choosing me to be your Golden Ocala wedding photographer! I wish you a lifetime of love and laughter (and Gator football wins obvi.)

Jacksonville has had a bit of a rough weather patch for the last month or so - and it's been wreaking havoc on my photo sessions. I'm starting to think that North Florida missed the memo that spring was a few months ago! However, the weather has finally decided to...
