Erin & Eric: A Green Tree Wedding (Avon Park and Sebring, Florida)

What all began as a blind date a few years ago, led to the most beautiful start of a marriage yesterday for Eric and Erin. I had the honor of capturing this incredible wedding day at the First Baptist Church in Avon Park, with the reception to follow at the Highlands County Fairgrounds in Sebring, Florida. The day was nothing short of perfect- a adorable and stunning couple, a God-centered ceremony by the wonderful Jared Longshore, the most hilarious bridal party, a unique lantern filled reception, and little details with every turn.


Erin & Eric decided to see each other before the ceremony. I love this intimate moment of the day…

I can hardly handle your gorgeousness.

I promise you there’s nothing like 10 groomsmen singing Backstreet Boys, to have a little fun during their pictures…

Someday, I may have to show the picture that took place two seconds after this one…oh girls, you were too fun!
One of my favorite moments before a wedding. All the girls praying over Erin before she becomes Eric’s wife. 
Erin and her sweet little niece, Livia. I don’t really think it can get much cuter than this!

First kiss!

I LOVE getting to work in small town locations that I’ve never shot before. It’s just so different than everything we have in Southwest Florida, and the rustic charm of these little towns in the middle of our state just make me swoon as I go through them. Oh, and an awesome bridal party definitely makes for plenty of fun!

Reception bound!
Details, details…

I love the thumb tree for the guests to leave their little mark on the day.
Do you see how gorgeous this room was?! I couldn’t get enough of the lanterns that were everywhere!Yes, that would be a backflip….I never thought dried peas could add the perfect touch to the centerpieces. Brilliant.Eric & Erin decided to share a last dance while all the guests got ready outside with the birdseed. This was definitely a special moment of the day.
Congratulations Erin and Eric! I was so blessed to be a part of your wedding day and I wish you two a marriage filled with great love and joy through all the years to come!
