I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to photograph Jennifer and Matt’s Nokomis wedding in my mind zum herunterladen! It was my first time in the area, and Jen and Matt’s families were so sweet to us! Since they got ready at Matt’s home, everything just felt really sweet and casual herunterladen. The guys relaxed upstairs with some pool and waterfront drinks, while the girls’ energy downstairs was a little more palpable (ooh… first time I’ve gotten to use “palpable” in a blog post!)

Jen said that she knew Matt was “the one” after just 2 months of dating indesign download kostenlos mac! Matt relentlessly pursued her, event though Jen was his best friend’s sister! She gave in eventually and really fell for Matt’s “realness” – and I have to concur that there is something so down-home about Matt flugärger app! You just feel like he’s been your best friend for years, even if you just met him! In true form, he grabbed a beer for Jen and himself after their First Look and was relaxed, even through the nerves iphone xr app herunterladen!

But my favorite story of Matt and Jen is actually his proposal! Probably not for the same reasons you’d think… Matt surprised Jen with a dinner at her favorite hotel, Disney’s Grand Floridian youtube videos mit handy downloaden! But when they arrived, he actually forgot the name of the restaurant and they ended up eating at the wrong one! Jen wasn’t wise to the surprise though – and they took to the beach for the Magic Kingdom fireworks show after dinner psp kostenlos spiele downloaden. He gave her a sweet note about all the reasons why he loved her, and when she was done reading it – he was on one knee!

Side note: I knew I loved Matt and Jen after hearing their proposal story, because it’s almost identical to mine (just a few of the details changed) netflix filme downloaden am pc. It makes me happy!

Matt took Jen back to their hotel where his family was waiting with a mini-engagement party for them to wrap up the night cut pattern free ladies!

For their big day, Jennifer mixed eucalyptus accents in to a rustic bridal bouquet of coral and gold, and her bridesmaids wore cocktail-length mint-green lace dresses images to for free. They were married in her home church, where the sweetest surprise came from Mason, a bit of a “guest of honor” in the form of a guide dog! Jennifer has been raising guide dogs, and Mason was her first. In a way, it was their first “child”, and they were so excited to see him at the ceremony!

I’m so excited for Jen and Matt’s next venture in life, but kind of sad to be finished with their wedding! I hope we can come up with lots of fun reasons to shoot in the future!! ;)
