Joann & Christian's happy day was full of Food, Fun, and most important Family & Friends. We spent all day capturing the emotional memories of their first look, their joyful ceremony and some of the most loving speeches that I have ever heard. Joann & Christian are fortune enough to be surrounded by people that know how amazing they are. We absolutely love it when our brides/grooms are more friends than clients. Joann & Christian are definitely added to our friend category!
The venue that J&C choose Palm Valley Garden's is unique with rich details that made it easy to capture.
All of the details that Joann & Christian put into their wedding really made the day special. It was really hard to choose my favorites, so here are a few of them....
A few of the gorgeous bride and beautiful bridesmaids
And the other hotties of the wedding party...
The happy couple decided to calm their nerves with a "First Look" before the ceremony and we were able to get some amazing pictures, so many that it was hard to choose which ones to show.
The Beginning of the rest of their lives.
The food, family, & fun... and I think this first photo is my favorite. I just love that I able to catch Joann & her mom's connection on camera.
Joann surprised Christian with a caricature artist. Mr. D did a full caricature of their little family and then was able to entertain the guest all night with portraits. It was an added bonus to a great night.
The happily ever after.
