Michelle and Chris were married at the beautiful Winterbourne on the St. Johns. This location provides a romantic atmosphere with the feeling of southern charm.

We loved the personal touches Michelle added to her shoes to make them special!

We asked the bride to share what she loved about her wedding, and she gave us the details:

It was the happiest day of my life! The weather was perfect and the setting was beautiful. My most vivid memory is of a butterfly flitting right past me during the beginning of the ceremony. It was so close I thought it might land on me! I remember thinking God was there.

Loved the sweet girls watching the couple sneak in a few kisses.

The happy couple, Chris and Michelle had smiles throughout the whole day and we were so glad we could be a part of it!

Jerry had a great time with Matt and Cara in Jacksonville’s Downtown and Riverside areas. The love this couple shares for each other can truly be seen in these engagement photos.

We always enjoy a good proposal story and asked the bride-to-be to share how her fiancé popped the question! Cara gave us their scoop:

We were in St. Simon’s Island, GA for a trip for my birthday. We spent a great weekend riding bikes around town, going to the beach and going kayaking in the rivers. The night before my birthday, we went on a dinner cruise. In the middle of the cruise, he took me outside to the top of the ship to look at the stars, said he had one more birthday present for me, got down on his knee and proposed. It was so sweet, and I was completely taken by surprise. 

Well, of course she said yes and we’re so happy they chose us to photograph this special time in their lives! We’re as excited as Cara and Matt for their September 2013 wedding, and know it will be completely gorgeous.

This week we’re looking at some of our favorite bridal images from previous years.

We love capturing a happy bride in the days leading up to her wedding. Having a bridal session is a way to show off your glowing personality as well as your beautiful dress.

Bridal Sessions don’t always have to be just the bride. We can also have a session of the happy couple!

You might remember the wedding of Robert and Tracie from the SmileStand blog post we shared. We loved this couple so much that we wanted to share their wedding as well!

They had their ceremony at the beautiful Bethal Baptist Church in historic downtown Jacksonville, and their reception at the grand Friday Musicale in Riverside. Their wedding was a mixture of classic elegance and modern fun with lots of amazing details, diamonds and lovely shades of purple and lavender.

It was clear to see the great time the happy couple and their family and friends had at the wedding. The mood was festive and smiles were on everyone’s faces.
