Alys Beach Anniversary Session from Lauren Kinsey Photography

After three years of blissful marriage, these two cuties (the ever-talented Jennifer Blair and her dapper Mr.) have still got it.  That eternally glow-y, love-filled happiness reserved exclusively for couples in all caps LOVE.  And what better way to capture that joy-filled bliss than with a pretty, pretty anniversary session set against a stunning Alys Beach backdrop and captured by the always stellar Lauren Kinsey? Answer: nothing.  See it all right here in the full gallery.

From Jennifer BlairToday I’m so excited to send over some photos from our anniversary session with the lovely and talented Lauren Kinsey. I had been planing our little 3-year celebration for a few months and was so happy to find such a phenomenal film photographer so close to where we live. As a wedding photographer myself, it was a huge deal to find someone that I love and trust completely. When Lauren suggested Alys Beach I was almost beside myself. It fit in perfectly with the style we wanted to go for. The home we’ve created is full of pastel blues, greens and white with a Tuscan feel. We hoped our session would reflect that as well. After three years of marriage, we are so happy to have some updated photos of our everyday love not just wedding photos. I feel like we’ve changed and grown so much in the past three years as well. I, for one, have changed my hair color (admittedly, quite a bit) and we both look less like the babies we were when we wed at 21 and 22! I’m so thankful Lauren was able to capture us in this season of life. I’m forever grateful.

Alys Beach, Florida Wedding from Lauren Kinsey

This wedding has touched my heart in a way I can’t quite explain. Because when the unthinkable happened, the passing of the bride’s baby brother, this couple chose to let love and hope prevail in the most beautiful of ways — exchanging vows beneath the cross her brother had built for their day. Lauren Kinsey captured every moment of true, pure emotion, and you won’t leave this gallery with a dry eye. I promise you that.

From Lauren Kinsey… Molly contacted me about 13 months ago and asked me to shoot her wedding. We instantly had this connection that I can’t really explain. I loved how she gushed about Josh and her sweet family. I felt like part of her family.

Then, the unthinkable happened. Molly’s baby brother, Doug, tragically passed. My heart was broken for her and for her family.

The day of the wedding was so emotionally charged and full of love. Molly’s mother prayed over Molly in the morning and she and the girls all did yoga on the lawn, in front of the cross that Molly’s brother Dwight made for the wedding, which served an an alter.

Molly wore an ivory alencon lace gown and a scalloped chapel train by Jim Hjelm, and was complemented by an heirloom cathedral veil that was worn by her sister, Emily, and her cousin Caroline. She carried a beautiful and textural bouquet created of blush and ivory hues including baubles, artemesia, foliage, succulent rossettes, tuberose, david austin roses in sand a creamy blush, pale peach ranunculus, pale blush garden roses and ivory vendella roses bound in old ivory hand dyed satin ribbon.

Emily Miller, Molly’s sister, stood as her Matron of Honor, and Emily wore a cream, silk gown and the flower girls wore cream heirloom handkerchief lace dresses from New Orleans, which is Josh and Molly’s favorite place to visit. All of the guests were asked to wear a cardinal pin, which also served as favors, in memory of Doug and other family members who had passed. During the reception, there was also a root bear float toast given by Molly and Josh, which was Doug’s favorite drink. Following the wedding, Josh surprised Molly with a surprise honeymoon to Bora Bora.

Molly graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Family and Consumer Sciences and for six years has worked at Texas Children’s Hospital as a Child Life Specialist in Houston, Texas. Josh is a a pediatric dentist at his own practice at Southeast Texas Children’s Dentistry.
