Red White and Blue Anniversary Session

As the girl who tied the knot over the 4th of July weekend many moons ago, beautiful Americana inspiration predictably wins my heart every time. This perfect anniversary session from 13:13 Photography has done just that with it’s red and white stripes, naked cake adorned with strawberries and blackberries, and stunning beach locale. It’s one for the books, this one.

Cristy and David are such a sweet couple, happy and in love, and celebrating their one-year anniversary. They met in college 2008, but didn’t start dating until 2010. They finally tied the knot last year and are still as in love as ever. We wanted to celebrate their love with a pretty, romantic beach picnic, adorned with a hint of red white and blue to inspire the warm summery feelings solicited by our favorite summer holiday!

Simple-Chic Floridian Wedding

Sometimes simplicity says it best, and I think that’s the case for this next chic Floridian wedding. The exquisite grounds of Stanahan House painted a perfect backdrop for the Bellissima Bride gown to steal the spotlight – and with its lace details and dramatic train, it definitely did! Catch all the gorgeous details here, in a gallery by Carolina Guzik Photography.

From Carolina Guzik PhotographyThis Wedding was absolutely gorgeous. The decoration was simple, yet exquisite and the Stranahan House was the perfect location for this affair.

Danielle + Ryan didn’t want to see each other prior to the ceremony, so the moment when Danielle walked down the isle was very emotional. She looked perfect on her lace gown and Ryan was moved to tears.

After their ceremony we spent some time together getting some stunning romantic images both around the grounds of the Stranahan House and The Riverside Hotel.

I loved the fact that Danielle wore the gold rosary of her late grandma around her bouquet, and that she gave her parents handmade handkerchief with a personal message.

Fort Lauderdale Wedding from Jillian Tree Photography

This, my friends, is a wedding that is overflowing with perfection.  A wedding that is sooo stunning and sooo heartwarming, it deserves the description “jaw-droppingly gorgeous.”  And above all of the pretty, pretty details (I’m looking at you, seriously stunning tulips), it’s a wedding that showcases two of the most adorable people you’ll ever have the privilege to meet… and a proposal story that is all sorts of amazing. Dive into the full gallery captured by Jillian Tree Photography.  It’s sooo worth it.


From the Bride… After over 2 years of dating, Kirk and I knew the rest of our lives would be best spent together. So my talented fiance set about the work of writing a song. He played, recorded, layered two guitars and a drum together, writing these words:

Just a few years back, I started talking with you.
I never had thought that you would like me too.
Now I get to see you almost every day.
You look so fine, and I have to say:
You’re so very special, truly one of a kind.
As a lifelong companion, I will claim you as mine.
You’re one in a million, truly one of a kind.
As a lifelong companion, I will claim you as mine.
For all of life’s journeys, we make a good team.
When I picture the future, you are in every scene.
Gazing at the night sky, the stars, they do not fade.
Let me be the man you vow never to trade.
I love you with all my heart.
And I’ll love you ’til from this life, we part.

With my dad’s blessing given, Kirk took me to the beach one night. On the way, he told me that he had heard a new song on the radio, but said he couldn’t remember the name. I asked about it, what artist? But I received no answers.

While walking along the shore, Kirk paused. He told me that he remembered the song and that he wanted to play it on his phone for me. He then played “One of a Kind,” while hugging me tight. After he got down on one knee and said, “Emily, will you marry me?” What he didn’t know is that the ring box he was holding out was upside down. I stared at that box trying to see the ring. I realize that Kirk was waiting for an answer! The ring didn’t matter. So I said yes!

Our wedding date was May 18th, 2013. Kirk is perfect for me. We compliment each other, by filling in what is lacking in each of us. This love is going to last forever.
