Whoa, this has got to be one of the biggest wedding posts to date! 41 Images? Are you kidding me?? And I even took out about 15… geez… these two just had too fabulous of a wedding ;)
Mary & Bryan were married in February up in Gainesville at their home church, and their reception was at the Sweetwater Branch Inn (uh-mazing!). One of the best things about their day from a photographer’s prospective? I didn’t have to use my flash AT ALL. All of you photogs out there understand how flipppin’ awesome that truly is. It was such a gorgeous day, the weather was cool, the skies were clear, and Mary & Bryan were crazy in love. I didn’t really get to know these two before their wedding, both are in the military and don’t even live in Florida. So no engagement session for them, but I had no problem at all capturing the love between these two. Having spent almost their entire relationship apart due to their service, they were both so happy to finally be together, and as husband and wife. I was so honored to get to share their wedding day with them, and I hope that their photos bring them years and years of happiness, even when they are apart. So without further adieu (you have a lot of photos to get through!) please enjoy this late night post of this gorgeous and crazy-in-love couple!
Mary had this custom hanger made for her wedding dress. Adorable!
Mary & her lovely ladies. It was a little chilly! (hence the shawls)
All of Bryan’s groomsmen were in the military with him, so they each had their own sword *swoon*
I loved the way Mary’s dress floated about her as she walked down the isle
Bryan wiping away a tear after seeing his gorgeous bride :) So sweet
Swordsmen! I always love seeing this tradition at military weddings
After the ceremony the three of us took off through downtown Gainesville for some photos. This is where they had their first date!
The famous Hippodrome!
GORGEOUS car. Bryan surprised Mary with it for the day. Its little details like this that make such a difference!
Can you spot me?? ;)
I love this shot of Mary stepping out of the car. The light, her shape and the car. Just beautiful!
When Mary told me her date was in February, I suggested that she look into a faux fur stole. She found this one on ebay for $20!
It was such a gorgeous touch to her day.
These two had one of the sweetest First Dances I have ever seen. They were just so happy to be there together
Father/Daughter dances always get me! And this one was no different
Yes, I have a new love for vintage doorknobs and wedding rings.
Though this photo isn’t “spectacular” in any way, Bryan gave the most beautiful toast to his bride. It was such a wonderful moment at the wedding
Back out for some more photos! We snagged a center piece for this one!
Congratulations again you two! I had the most amazing time with you both, and I wish you all the happiness in the world. :)
