Wedding: Erica and Jason; St. Augustine Beach Photography

Griggs Wed 223

 

What’s more romantic than a wedding? A wedding on the beach! It was not only beautiful but one of the most stress-free and heart-warming events. Erica and Jason live in Utah were Jason was stationed. This was a destination wedding for everyone. The guest list was small with mostly family but that made it so much more relaxed and meaningful. The weather was warm but there was overcast skies just for the ceremony. Took the edge off the Florida sunshine. Even in late April it can be dreadfully hot.

After a lovely blue themed ceremony we had family photos and a wonderful reception at a local historical restaurant- the Raintree. I’d come photograph Jason, Erica and Blaze again anywhere in the country:)

Wedding: Victoria & Nick; Lexington, KY Wedding Photography

Victoria and Nick’s wedding was another very extra special occasion for me. All weddings are special and one-of-a-kind events but when I’ve photographed another family member of the bride or groom before it’s over the top for me. When I met with Victoria and her mom Gladys, we talked details of her wedding day, her current life and how her and Nick met. After a couple hours, we parted ways. I got an email from her a couple days later letting me know they wanted me to photograph their special day. She also noted as her and Nick were talking they discovered I had photographed Nick’s sister’s wedding 5 years ago! What a small world! I couldn’t wait to see Annie and Joe again. The wedding was lovely and almost like a family reunion. The couple had guests from all over attend the Estes Chapel (Weddings at Asbury) ceremony and Red Mile Round Barn reception.

Wedding: Sarah and Jesse; Louisville, KY Wedding, Photographer

Jones 408

 

Sarah and Jesse’s wedding was an extra special one for me. I photographed her sister’s wedding nearly 5 years ago. Her family had been through a lot since then. With the sudden loss of her father and a pregnancy with her daughter, Sarah had seen some big life changes. I felt so honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding where she’d marry the love of her life, Jesse. I wouldn’t have turned it down for the world. It was wonderful to see her mom and sister again- like a family reunion. Both so full of life and joy.

The ceremony was held in the front garden of the Peterson Dumesnil House in Louisville. It’s the perfect location for a lovely, stress-free day. Sarah and her maids were also able to get ready upstairs and have the reception on the large front porch. Congratulations Sarah and Jesse!

Life is such a miracle. The Lord God creates each of us wonderfully and fully thought out, down to our very cells. It’s such a special occasion when I get to photograph a precious new life. Babies grow and develop so quick!

Wedding: Sarah and Brandon; Lexington, KY Wedding Photography

Who would have thought it’d be in the mid 40s when it had been in the 70s the week before! Lower temperatures didn’t lower Sarah and Brandon’s spirits on the their April wedding day. Sarah donned a lovely what cape to keep warm on her journey from the Asbury Inn to Estes Chapel where she would have her first look with Brandon. It’s the perfect place for a first look- large clear windows with lots of light pouring in. The couple had a lovely ceremony followed by a reception at the student center across campus.
