Casey and Daniel were married on a beautiful October day in St. Augustine, Florida. After photographing their GORGEOUS engagement session at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park, we knew that their wedding pictures would somehow need to surpass them, and indeed they did! We met Casey at the Bayfront Marin House, looking beautiful and full of nervous energy while getting ready with her bridesmaids and family. As she put on her lovely lace vintage wedding dress, Casey’s mom’s eyes started to tear up as did many of her bridesmaids. While I was with Casey, Matthew was getting Daniel really for their first look in front of the house. He wore a dark grey suit and rustic boutonniere that complimented Casey’s lace dress. We love when couples want to have a first look, it is such a beautiful moment to be able to share together and have that time to say hello and dust a little of the nerves off. Their first look was so sweet and the look of anticipation on Daniel’s face was classic suspense! He was taken aback by how stunning Casey was as he turned around and saw his soon to be wife for the first time in her wedding dress. We were lucky enough after that to be able to take some portraits of then alone before going back and meeting up with the rest of the bridal party to whisked away to St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church for the ceremony. St. Cyprian’s is a hidden gem of a church in St. Augustine. The light coming through the stained glass windows is so amazing against the dark wood of the pews and altar area. You can feel the history of the church in the oldest city as soon as you walk through the doors. Casey and Daniel’s reception was held at the Bayview Room next to A1A Ale Works. Their friends and family made the evening fly by so fast, with great conversation and lively dancing from almost every person there! We had such an awesome time getting to know Casey and Daniel over the past year and cannot wait to see what the future holds for those two!
