Karl and I get to photograph pretty flowers regularly, practically every weekend, but this was my first opportunity to watch a florist at work. And when a florist gets married, you know you’re in for a treat. Amanda brought buckets upon buckets of flowers with her to her wedding in Islamorada. While most of the decor was set by the wedding day, she saved her bouquet for last. To my surprise it was quite an organic process, and she made it up as she went along. There were peonies and starfish, baby pineapples and orchids, and the end results were just so pretty and fresh.
Photographing this lovely couple was a dream. Renée and the girls spent the morning getting ready at her parent’s home here in Naples, and afterwards we met Alex at LaPlaya for a romantic first sight. The wedding party couldn’t have been more classic in a range of black and whites. Their ceremony took place at the ever charming Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church, with the party continuing back at LaPlaya. Thank you for having us as a part of your day, Renée and Alex!

Cristina and Vince had the sweetest destination wedding late last year. Capturing those flower girls, the sparkly details, the happy couple, and the myriad of treats at the reception was a dream. You guys, there was even a gelato bar. Their ceremony was held on the terrace overlooking Fifth Avenue followed by an intimate rooftop reception. Congrats to you both!
