I had the honor of photographing Kelly and Carlos's February Wedding at the White Room in St. Augustine, FL recently and I am so blessed to have been a part of their beautiful wedding. Kelly opted for a "First Look" session which is so great because it allows me to photograph the emotion of seeing each other for the first time on the wedding day so much better and gives a private/personal moment to the bride and groom as well. I always suggest to brides who can to do this because it makes the rest of the photos so much less stressful and rushed after the ceremony :)
It was a cold and breezy day but that didn't keep them and their amazing bridal party full of personalities from having a good time, they were such troopers during the walk around St. Augustine for their portraits! THe White Room was very prepared and had these great heaters on the patio for everyone and we had the most perfect weather for the ceremony. As a bonus surprise, the groomsmen who are mostly firefighters had a surprise lined up so when they were announced as husband and wife there were firetrucks down below to blow their horns and sirens in congratulation, definitely a successful feat for the groomsmen! One of my favorite things about the evening is that everyone was so much fun and there were a LOT of talented dancers of all ages at this wedding.
Kelly and Carlos had a great theme for their wedding and incorporated a lot of puzzle pieces and romantic sitcom/movie couples into their theme. Each table had a different hand painted canvas that Kelly's mother Carol painted for them so I just add to add a few of those to the blog here! I can see that Kelly and Carlos are surrounded by friends and family that love them so much and I know they have started their Happily Ever After now and I'm looking forward to seeing their family grow! Thank you to Carlos and Kelly for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding!
