Let me start off by saying that Kayla and Brian’s Ever After Farms Wedding was truly a wedding photographer’s fairy tale playground. Everything from the venue and the dress, to the Rolls Royce and the rockstar couple, was absolutely perfect. But the most important thing was the ridiculously adorable love between Brian and Kayla.
Let me tell you about Ever After Farms…The Vineyard is absolutely gorgeous with grapevines stretching as far as the eye can see. A 200 hundred-year-old oak tree shades the ceremony area and the white barn for receptions was perfect. The day began with the bride and her bridesmaids in the bridal suite – that I kind of want to move into now. There were so many great spaces to photograph portraits – but if you have ever been a bride of mine you KNOW I fell in love with the french doors. The gloriously lit barn entrance created a stunning backdrop for Ms. Kayla’s portraits and of course, she SLAYED IT. The only person more excited than me (and Kayla) was Kinsley! Not only was she so happy her momma was getting married, but she also got to have her hair, makeup and nails done for the wedding – but mostly it was about the nails. #Priorities.
The entire wedding day was gorgeous, but also so much fun! I don’t think Kayla left the dance floor even for a minute. Don’t worry though, Brian definitely held his own as well! Did I mention there was also a s’mores bar? How freaking perfect for a fall wedding in Florida.
Fun fact: I actually photographed Brian’s sister’s wedding a few years prior – which is how Kayla and Brian found me. Then I photographed their wedding, and not two weeks later I got to photograph their family again with a special addition. Kayla and Brian adopted the sweetest baby girl just after their wedding and we HAD to update their perfect family portraits. It’s a good thing they signed a wedding contract saying they solemnly swear to choose me as their photographer until death do us part. I kid, mostly. But in all sincerity, I love the relationship I get to create with each couple. It speaks volumes to my heart and my work when they choose me to document their family again as it grows. #photographerforLIFE
Kayla and Brian, I truly adore and you are the sweetest. I am so honored you chose me to document your Ever After Farms Wedding. Thank you both!
