Naples Botanical Garden, Naples, Florida: Lindsey & Mike

There’s something so storytelling about seeing a wedding through photos- from beginning to end. I figured since it’s been ages since I’ve blogged about one, I would replace my Friday Favorite today with a beautiful wedding we captured this fall. I remember the first time I met Lindsey and Mike, while sitting in my office, Lindsey told me that she just wanted to elope and didn’t really want to go through the planning process. They were so in love and so ready to spend the rest of their lives together that a trip to Vegas would have been sufficient. However, they decided against jetting off, and began the planning process for their big day in October. And, did they ever plan…their day was gorgeous and so detail filled that I could hardly contain myself. Their plum peacock theme literally traveled throughout every location in our area at the Gardens. Since I’m a wedding detail fanatic, I absolutely love when my head spins in every direction with something to photograph. On top of the fantastic detail, I had a beyond gorgeous bride, an awesome groom, a super fun bridal party and possibly the prettiest wedding location in Naples. Needless to say, it was a pretty perfect day and I felt so blessed to be chosen to capture it all.

Mike and Lindsey, thank you, thank you, thank you. You two are insanely sweet and I enjoyed every moment I’ve spent with you through the process from engaged to married! I can’t think of a better way to end the week (since I know how much you guys love Fridays!!) than sharing your wedding from beginning to end with everyone. Enjoy!

Swooning over Lindsey’s dress. Seriously, one of my most favorite dresses ever.


Stunning, stunning bride. Lindsey, you are gorgeous!!

Get ready for the food! They had all sorts of buffets to choose from- sushi, pizza, cheeseburger, pasta. Most definitely a hit for the guests!

Congrats Mike and Lindsey!  It was such a pleasure to be a part of your day and I wish you two a marriage filled with joy, great love and much laughter!
