a summer tallahassee garden club wedding
This is a day I’ve been waiting a looooong time for and it was absolutely PERFECT! Alexis + Chris were truly made for each other. You can see the happiness on their faces when they are together! The entire day was fun, relaxed, and a celebration! We started the day by popping champagne on the rooftop of Hotel Duval overlooking downtown Tallahassee. The mood of the day felt so fun, light-hearted, and sweet. Two of the most emotional first looks happened at this wedding. So many tears were shed when her dad and Chris both saw her for the first time!
The Garden Club provided the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous wedding day. It was my first time photographing there and I loved it! Alexis + Chris’ arch was absolutely stunning. It was unique and one of my favorites I’ve ever seen!
I knew Alexis and I were meant to be friends when we met for coffee at her consult and we bonded over talking about our love for our cats. Haha! We instantly clicked and became friends right then and there that day, and the rest was history! We of course talked about her wedding and I remember her telling me how close she is with her family and how important they are to her. My family is my everything too, so that’s another thing we had in common. Fast forward over a year later to her beautiful wedding day- I met their families for the first time and instantly felt welcomed. It was a celebration of two families becoming one, and it was so special getting to celebrate with them.
Fun fact, Alexis and I share a true love for food (I tell ya, she’s my soul sister!) – I wish you could have seen her excitement when her pizza arrived when they were getting ready! During the cake cutting, Alexis + Chris sweetly fed each other a little taste of cake, and then she took the rest of the plate of cake and walked off eating it. MY GIRL! haha!
She truly has a caring and loving heart. She is a nurse, so of course caring is just in her nature. She has been one of my biggest cheerleaders during my rebrand. Every time I publish a new blog post, she ALWAYS messages me telling me how much she loved the pictures and how she couldn’t wait to HER wedding to be featured on the blog. Well, YOUR stunning wedding is on the blog, my sweet friend! Enjoy some of my favorites from your WEDDING DAY!
