It's been awhile since I photographed a wedding, and I was honored when one of my Florida friends, Chad, asked if I would photograph his. He and Carlen and their daughter, Aria, were originally planning to elope to Tuscany (so of course I volunteered to tag along -- who wouldn't?!) but when you also want your family to come with you, sometimes it makes more sense to plan something closer to home.
They were hoping for a simple, short and sweet, "let's just walk down to the beach and have the ceremony" kind of thing, but the weather turned drizzly just in time. So we headed to their surf-style church instead. Roll with it!
I was sooo glad to be a part of this family's very special and beautiful day. Thanks, guys!!
