Whew! Where to begin? Okay first of all, Kristen and Robbie had one of the most non-stop, always entertaining, never knew what was around the corner wedding days that I’ve ever been a part of. It began with meeting Kristen at a little bed and breakfast where she and her girls were getting ready. Everyone was so low key and ready ON TIME (which RARELY happens). Sweet Kristen could not have been more gorgeous. Her girls dressed her in her gown and jewelry, and we walked around to takes some pic of them. From there we hopped on a horse and carriage and got to the church.
Their ceremony was beautiful. One of the sweetest moments was watching Robbie’s head bob in between his guys as he was trying to see his bride coming down the aisle. Once the wedding was over, we did some quick formals in the church, then wandered around St. Augustine with the wedding party to grab some fun shots. Once we were done, we were ready for everyone to be introduced into the reception.
With a wedding party such as theirs, you never knew what they were going to do. So to say the least, their walking into the wedding and reception was entertaining. =) Kristen and Robbie came in and went right into their first dance which was perfectly choreographed and HOT! We dipped out for 1o mins and got some gorgeous sunset photos on the bay. I’m sooooo glad they were up for that. They turned out so beautiful.
Congrats Kristen and Robbie on your marriage and your perfect wedding day. It was so gorgeous, and I hope the photo let you relive it over and over. Thank you for letting me be there to share it with you. xoxoox
Also, a HUGE thank you to Lauren and Wendy, two AMAZING wedding planners. They ran their BUTTS off all day long. The perk of having 2 planners for the day of was essential this day. While Lauren was setting up every tiny detail of the reception and cocktail hour, Wendy was with us straightening back furniture after we had moved it for photos and helped carry everything to the church. They were awesome!!!!!
Also another huge thank you to Corie who was a 3rd shooter for the day. She caught some really amazing moments, and she was able to head to the reception to grab detail shots while we were still around town shooting formals. Great job, Corie!
