Lindsey + Luke :: Islamorada Dream Wedding
The stars were aligned during this wedding down in Islamorada in the Florida Keys... the weather was perfect, the venue was mind blowing, the details were hand crafted and to add to it... Luke and Lindsey are literally the two most positive and wonderful human beings on the planet. They brought me down a day early to have some pre-wedding fun with the entire family, really a great opportunity to get comfortable with everyone seeing as how we were about to spend the next 14 hours in one another's company!
The morning of the wedding, I bounced back and forth between the bride and groom prepping for their first look out on the beach underneath 30 foot tall palm tree (yeah I know), and if you are on the fence about first looks, I say do it. After witnessing first hand the joy and excitement they both shared for seeing one another dressed in their wedding day attire, it would be hard not to suggest it. The private seclusion of the area we selected also allowed these two smitten kittens a little personal time to shake out any nervousness and to get some early smooch'n in. I was backed far away with a long telephoto lens to give them a bit more privacy.
Over the course of the day we all had so many tearful, excited and emotional moments that its hard to recount everything... I'll let the pictures do the talking, especially for the groomsmen's impromptu midnight swim in the Gulf of Mexico!
