If you are thinking about a scheduling your wedding during the holiday season, take a look at the Bartel/Shobe wedding here! Brad and Autumn are an amazing couple from Michigan. They planned their destination wedding in Saint Augustine and the Florida weather sure beat the cold northern winter.
The Casa Monica Hotel was the perfect spot for the bride and her bridal party to get ready and conveniently located in walking distance to the glorious Cathedral Basilica of Saint Augustine.
They had a beautiful wedding ceremony service at the Cathedral Basilica, rich with history and full of family, friends and God’s love. What a wonderful start to their celebration of marriage.
The Lightner Museum provided a picturesque backdrop for Brad and Autumn’s wedding party and family formal photos. They were such a fun group to photograph, and even the rain that came didn’t dampen spirits.
I love this shot on the left of their rings on a Christmas ornament! The Casa Monica was gorgeously decorated for the holidays and a great compliment to the reception decor of cool teals with peacock feathers, flowers and pretty details.
We are very blessed to have been chosen as their wedding photographers and was super excited by Autumn’s review she wrote on the Wedding Wire: “I was a destination bride so I had to choose a photographer from afar. Let me tell you how lucky I was to fall into the hands of Karen. Her and the assistant were so easy to work with! We ran a little bit behind at the reception but they even stayed late (mind you this meant they were taking pictures for like 9 hours) to make sure we got our first dance photographed. And of course what really matters is that the pictures are EXCELLENT! We are so pleased with how they turned out. Thanks so much Favorite Photography!”
