Joann & Christian: The Wedding

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....

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.

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.
