When I first met with Stephanie I hoped more than anything that she would choose me to photograph her wedding. She had so many little details planned (and I am a total detail person) as well as a gorgeous ceremony/reception site. I had been looking forward to this day for quite some time and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to take part in your first day as husband and wife.

Listening to the harpist and violinist play while the waves crashed gently, yet noticeably in the background was an unforgettable sound as Stephanie crossed the bridge to begin her walk down the aisle. At the same time, seeing the anticipation on Ryan’s face and then the smile as he saw his bride for the first time was even more significant. The scenery and location were just to die for, saying their vows on a private island on the river with tall palm trees and greenery all around.

Their beached theme wedding featured a gorgeous cake with sand surrounding the bottom layer, centerpieces with fishbowls and floating candles, and umbrella place cards sitting creatively in a sand creation at the entry way to the reception. A night full of dancing, smiles, kissing, football (it was the night of a big game..UF/LSU..Go Gators!), and most importantly love. A love that was so evident from beginning to end. Congratulations Ryan and Stephanie on your marriage. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and joy. Your day was truly fabulous and I truly hope this was only the beginning of what is to come during your years together.
