I’m so excited to be photographing Amy and Chad’s wedding next month in St. Augustine, Florida. I wanted to share some of the photos from their engagement session earlier this year at beautiful Princess Place Preserve in Palm Coast, Florida.

Amy and Chad brought Amy’s black lab, Colby, to the session. As you can see from the photos, Colby definitely approves of Chad.

I hope you enjoy these photos. Please keep an eye out for the pictures from their wedding!

Princess Place Preserve in Palm Coast Florida Engagement Session - Amy and Chad

Allison and John were married a few months ago at the beautiful Highland Manor in Apopka, Florida. Highland Manor was built more than 110 years ago as a private residence. The manor, now operated by Dubsdread Catering, has transformed into one of the nicest venues in central Florida.

The bridal party had the entire second floor of historic manor house to get ready. With the hardwood floors and high ceilings, it was a beautiful backdrop for wedding preparations and photos.

The ceremony took place on the front lawn under the majestic oak tree. Allison walked down the aisle carrying a bouquet of sunflowers and light blue hydrangeas.

The reception was held in the main ballroom, which was decorated with gold Chivari chairs and gorgeous chandeliers. Allison did an amazing job with all of the personal touches, from the centerpieces to the menu cards drawn to look like chalkboards. Everything continued the sunflower theme, including the cake made by the bride’s mom.

During the welcome, they emphasized the good food, and they were definitely right! We’ve never been to a wedding with such good Southern food. The fried chicken, ribs and barbecue were amazing. After dinner, DJ Bracken took over the party and the guests filled the dance floor.

Congratulations Allison and John – thank you for choosing us to be your wedding photographers!

Shayna and Joey had their wedding in Melbourne Beach at the Crowne Plaza. The ceremony was on the Ocean Deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the reception was indoors in the Grand Ballroom Barbados Room.

They picked a gorgeous spring day for their wedding. Shayna was beaming as her mother walked her down the aisle – both looked beautiful. After the ceremony, Shayna and Joey took some time for portraits overlooking the beach and ocean.

Shayna carried white roses and plum-purple flowers that matched the dresses of her seven bridesmaids. The reception ballroom was also transformed with purple lighting. The DJ, Sophisticated Gents, had no problem keeping the party going as the guests danced well in to the night.

Congratulations Shayna and Joey and thank you for choosing us to photograph your amazing wedding!

The Crowne Plaza of Melbourne Beach – Oceanfront

The Crowne Plaza in Melbourne Beach is a fantastic place for a wedding. They recently had major renovations to their lobby and ballrooms. The easy beach access makes it one of the best locations for a wedding in Melbourne.
