Jessica and Sam were married August 15, 2009 at the beautiful Rustic Manor in Newberry, Fl. Here are some of the photos from their special day. Since Jessica and Sam were one of my first couples to hire me as their wedding photographer last August, I am sharing an extra long sneak peek here as my thank you.
The bridesmaids before the wedding, looking absolutely fabulous!
While the girls were getting ready my awesome assistant Jenna went with the boys to the UF Stadium for some groomsmen photos.
Just before the ceremony- Jessica trying to calm her nerves. Doesn’t she make a gorgeous bride?
With her father walking down the aisle.
Sam trying to get a look at his bride.
And the beautiful couple.
Jessica and Sam chose to incorporate a sand ceremony to represent the joining of their two lives into one.
This little one was so enthralled with tossing her flowers, she kept doing it al through the ceremony!
The groomsmen “lost” Jessica’s ring. Here is one looking in his shoe for it. The ring had found itself a great hiding spot around his toe.
Exchanging of rings, toe jam and all.
Some quick photos after the ceremony before the formal pictures took place.
You have got to love these candid moments. Thank’s to Jenna for capturing this great shot!
And here are some fun shots with the bridal party.
And some more of Sam and Jessica as husband and wife.
Welcome to the reception- where this couple certainly knew how to have FUN! Here they are dancing their way in as their grand entrance.
And a little cake on the face never hurt anyone, but certainly makes for a good time!
All the lovely single ladies looking to catch the bouquet.
Congratulations Jessica and Sam! Hope you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon. Thank you for inviting me to be there to capture your wedding day, and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
