When I first met with Crissy and Michael last Spring about their wedding it was easy to see how much in love these two are. Michael had just graduated and moved to South Florida and Crissy remained in Gainesville to finish her degree. They managed to plan their wedding while maintaining a long distance relationship, a feat that is not easily accomplished! Their marriage marked the beginning of their lives together as Crissy was able to move to South Florida to start her life as Mrs. Beach.
Their wedding was the last wedding of 2010 for me, and definitely one of the most memorable! The morning of their wedding was rainy and dreary but the clouds cleared just in time for their ceremony at the Baughman Center on the campus of the University of Florida. The temperature, however, plummeted into the 40s and I was cold wearing long sleeves and nine months pregnant, so I can only imagine how the poor girls in their strapless dresses must have felt!
Here is a sneak peek from their wedding ceremony and formal shots. Another post coming soon with reception and slideshow!
Crissy’s mother walked her down the aisle- what a beautiful moment.

Crissy and Michael left us plenty of time to take photos between the ceremony and the reception, so we were able to spend lots of time at the Baughman Center before heading to the Gainesville County Club for more photos and the reception.

I know this blog post is much longer then normal, but I really wanted to share some of these detail photos.
Crissy and Michael- it was a pleasure working with you guys! Your wedding was beautiful and I wish you a very blessed life together!
