Jennifer & Daniel-Pure and True {Southwest Florida Wedding Photographer}

I photographed this wedding a few months ago, and let me tell, you could just feel the love. Jennifer and Daniel are such a sweet and genuinely REAL couple. I love how this wedding was planned. There were a lot of details that had true meaning. Nothing was over the top; just real and organic. I loved the venue. The dance floor was to die for. There were trees everywhere and it was just so natural. I had such a good time and I was working! :)  What a wonderful family this is. Jennifer and Daniel, may you have many years of happiness and love!



They had these jars of jelly with their information on them as party gifts. LOVE.

Their cake was very simple and classic. It really went along w/ the style of Jennifer’s dress. The cake topper was the bride’s parents’ at their wedding!
My FAVORITE detail of the wedding were the flags they had for guests to write greetings in lieu of a guest book. Then they hung them for decoration. SWOON.
They had a fire pit where they roasted smores! SO much fun and YUM!
This is a little storyboard of Daniel seeing Jennifer for the first time that day. I love how he lifts up his glasses to get a better look! :)
They walked down the aisle together. Notice how she looks at and admires him…
This little girl could have been the flower girl, but she was not. :) She was one of the bridesmaid’s daughter. She just happened to be holding the bouquet and I snapped this shot. What a sweetie!

First dance…
An Irish tradition in Daniel’s family, this flag was made and all of the grandchildren’s wedding dates, along w/ their initials, are added to it as each one gets married. Then the family surrounds the couple and dances/sings a traditional family song and wraps the couple in the flag. It brought tears to my eyes. SOOOO wonderful!
Father/daughter dance. Again…tears. How am I supposed to see what I’m shooting w/ tears in my eyes?!?!
The night ended with comfy shoes and a change of clothing for most. This is how we roll in Florida. ;)
All the best to you, Jennifer and Daniel! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day.
