I love destination weddings and I especially love hearing why a couple chose their particular destination. For Ari and Ryan, the decision was a simple one when planning their Pippin Hill Farms Wedding in Virginia. To begin, Ari and Ryan met at a bar in Norfolk,...
Danielle and Bradley’s Wedding on Jacksonville Beach
Danielle and Bradley’s wedding on Jacksonville Beach was perfect. I met Danielle last year when she wanted some social media/website pictures for her business: The Happy Enthusiast .. Since being happy is in my bio… we totally hit it off! So, when she called about her wedding, I was STOKED!
I started out the day with Danielle at an adorable beachy Airbnb. It was the perfect backdrop for the detail shots of her dress and gorgeous ring! Then we headed to the beach. Danielle made sure to plan her ceremony time during the golden hour before sunset. That hour is usually the perfect time for portraits because the light is just right! As the gorgeous sun was setting, Danielle came over the sand dune walkway and shone! Her sweet groom was watching her every step and it was so intimate and special. Their friends and family surrounded them in a semi-circle to celebrate and be present in the moment! It really was perfect! As soon as the ceremony was done, we were ready to get some EPIC portrait shots on the beach. And boy was that light yummy!
After rockin’ their sunset portraits, we went to their reception where more friends were ready to celebrate! A little dancing, eating and drinking and the day ended perfectly 🙂
Danielle and Bradley, I’m so lucky you trusted me to document your amazing day. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
