Amanda and Justin decided to have a daytime wedding ceremony in historic St. Augustine, but they also wanted photos that included the famous St. Augustine Nights of Lights, so our solution was to do family and couple's photos on rehearsal night.
It was nice getting to know the wedding party before jumping into photos on the wedding day and offered some great variety to the photos from the daytime wedding.
Here are a few images from the Wedding Rehearsal Family and Portrait Session.
On the wedding day, Amanda and her bridesmaids got ready at the beautiful Bayfront Marin House, and after some fun images doing hair and makeup in the room, we took the short walk to the White Room bridal suite so Amanda could put on her dress in front of that fantastic mirror! We took Justin and Amanda to a nearby cobblestone street so they could do a "first look" (where the couple sees each other for the first time in an intimate moment). The first look allowed us to do photos with our lovely couple before their Villa Blanca Wedding Ceremony.
The Villa Blanca is an incredible space, and in the daytime, the room fills with light making it an excellent ceremony location. I was touched by the amount of love expressed by Amanda and Justin's families! I love the photos of her grandparents holding hands during the ceremony. I was so excited to be able to capture this in addition to all the other fantastic moments of this special day! After a heartfelt ceremony, Amanda and Justin enjoyed brunch with their family and friends, and a bubble send off!
Congratulations Amanda and Justin!
