In Florida, you ever know what the weather will bring month to month or even day to day. Mackenzie + Eric were blessed with one of the most gorgeous days we’ve had yet this year! Sun shining, perfect temperature, slight breeze blowing, and clear blue skies. The mood of the day went perfectly with the weather- everyone was calm, cheerful, and excited! During the course of emailing Mackenzie throughout the planning process, it stuck out to me that she was always so calm, even the week before! She was just excited! That’s Mackenzie for you, love that girl!
This was one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever captured. Mackenzie + Eric decided not to share a first look before the ceremony, but they wanted to make sure they had a moment to hold hands and pray together. This moment was so intimate and special, and that’s where the tears started! Eric was overcome with emotion all day and it was the SWEETEST!
I always love when the officiant has a special tie to the couple. They had Eric’s dad perform the ceremony which was so incredibly sweet. Right as he got started, he got choked up as he saw Mackenzie stand before Eric. I don’t believe there was a dry eye out there. (I was shooting through tears!)
The reception looked like Joanna Gaines spent the entire week creating it. Absolutely beautiful wood touches, candles burning, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We sat down for dinner and enjoyed biscuits + gravy, bacon, eggs, mac and cheese, etc! I loved the comfort food, mmmmm!
Mackenzie looked like she stepped right off the cover of a bridal magazine! I felt so welcomed and loved by their families from the moment I arrived until I hugged them goodbye. I’m always so thankful for couples and families that make us feel like a part of their world! I enjoyed spending their special day with them and having the opportunity to love and serve them. I’ve been looking forward to capturing their day since their engagement session, where we shared so many laughs as they rocked their portraits!
Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day! Thank you to everyone who had a part in helping make their day so wonderful!
