River House St Augustine

The River House St Augustine | Marissa + Ryan

I will be the first to admit that I check the weather every 5 minutes the week before a wedding. Okay that was a bit of an exaggeration, just a bit though! You’d think I’d know better by now, because Florida weather is so all over the place, to not check the weather so far in advance. For Marissa and Ryans wedding at the River House St Augustine, the rains (and wind) did come!

Even with the less-than-perfect weather, Marissa and Ryans’ wedding day was absolutely magical. From Marissa’s stunning dress to the super fun DJ, it was amazing.

Ryan and Marissa are such a fun couple. When Ryan hired me as their wedding photographer, I knew that we would vibe immediately! There is nothing better than couples and their families that laugh at my goofy jokes, haha!

Highlights of their River House St Augustine Wedding

  • Marissa’s first look with her dad was so so sweet! Maybe it’s because I have children, but those first looks and the first dances always get me!
  • When the groomsmen came through the door, fully dressed in suits, holding a drill, and ready to fix the arbor and save the day. You have an amazing bride tribe who jump at the chance to help!
  • The first kiss dip!
  • The dancing! Marissa did try to warn me that they love to dance, and boy was she right! I love a good reception filled with laughter, fun, and dancing. The River house had a stunning reception space and (thankfully!) it was big enough for this crew. So much fun!!
  • Lastly, since we are still in this pandemic, River House staff made us all feel super comfortable with temperature checks before entering! Thank you River House St Augustine!
