Emily was my roommate in college, so I was so honored and excited when she asked me to photograph her wedding. My sister Jenna, who is my amazing assistant and was also one of the 1514 roomies all those years ago, was also able to come along for Emily and John’s wedding last weekend in Stuart, FL. It was great to see some familiar faces from our college days, as well as be there to celebrate this amazing couple and their fairy-tale love story. The two met in the beginning of the year when Emily was the maid of honor at John’s brother’s wedding. They met, had a whirlwind courtship and continued a long distance relationship with Emily in Gainesville and John in Virginia until he asked her to marry him in May.
Emily was such a beautiful bride, and everything about this wedding from the location to the ceremony to the favors was so very intimate and exquisite, and just so very Emily! Jenna and I had a fabulous time and loved being a part of this couple’s special day. Enjoy the first sneak peek- more of the couple will be posted soon!
The ceremony and reception took place at Finz Waterfront Restaurant in Stuart, FL on the Intercostal Waterway.
Some of Emily’s fantastic details- and look at that cake! Simple, beautiful, and delicious.
Always a traditionalist, Emily chose to wear her grandmother’s pearls for her walk down the aisle. I don’t think I have ever seen a happier bride on her wedding day.
Calla lilies- in white for the bride and yellow for the attendants- perfect for a midsummer afternoon wedding.
