Devin + Carly / Wedding at the Raleigh Hotel

Sometimes no matter how much we plan and pray, things just don’t go our way. It’s a sucky fact of life and a lesson the weather decided to teach on Devin and Carly’s wedding day. When they first began planning their wedding, they chose February 6th, the historically driest day in Miami, to better their chances of having their dream outdoor wedding go uninterrupted. As luck would have it, the rain had other plans.  Tents went up and we braced ourselves for a big storm while still keeping our hopeful fingers crossed.

Luckily everything went on perfectly. The rain took pause while Devin’s late dad’s best friend helped them exchanged vows under a Chuppah. The clear tent that gave us refuge during the reception rain looked absolutely magical reflecting all the string lights and as luck would have it, the storm held off until everyone was safely underneath it, ready to party.

Rob + Steph / Looking glass falls engagement session

Rob is quite the athlete. He competes in cycling races through the mountains of NC yearly, where his family also camps out for a week or two. When he and Steph began dating, she joined in on the fun. As we planned their engagement session, we came up with a few places but at in the end, there was no other place worthy.

Steph, Rob and I spent an afternoon exploring the beauty of the falls and chatting about everything from teaching and biking down to their wedding plans. I’m so excited to be a part of their wedding day in a few months!

James & Kate / wedding at the Jupiter Lighthouse

All brides I’ve met have been joyful on their wedding days, but I have never met one that glowed with happiness as much as Kate did. From the moment she put on her custom Oscar de la Renta dress until she waved goodbye to her loved ones on James’ boat, there was a wide and warm smile on her face. It was magnetic and contagious. Their ceremony was held under a beautiful Banyan tree who was the star of the show.  After a quick trolly ride, their guests feasted and danced the night away at the Jupiter Hills Club under huge chandeliers and surrounded by cream, peach and blush florals.
