I seriously cannot tell you how excited I was to wake up the Saturday morning of Mandy and Jake’s wedding. They are so sweet and so in love, it’s hard to not be in good mood around them, and I just knew their wedding day was going to be filled with so much joy (spoiler alert- it was!)
Below is a sweet glimpse into their beautiful wedding day. I am truly so grateful to have been there! I think my favorite part (other than the first look, which was pretty emotional and beautiful) was when Jake’s fire chief gave his speech at the reception. Joining a family of heroes like firefighters, police, or the military can be super hard. But it is clear that Mandy is joining a true community that loves Jake and loves her. It just goes to show how truly special and beautiful these two are! Congrats you two!! I am forever grateful to have been a part of your special day!
The Carriage House in St Augustine is a super convenient venue located right near the historic district. As a Jacksonville Wedding Photographer of over 8 years, I have a lot of great insight into what makes a venue really magical, so here is my fav things about the Carriage House.
I love this gorgeous barn! The string lights really bring the reception to life and make my job easier while still keeping a super romantic vibe to your reception. It’s really the best of both worlds. The barn also has plenty of room for dinner and dancing, without looking too large
Located in downtown Saint Augustine, The Carriage House is super convenient for all your loved ones to enjoy your wedding day.
Large and full of beautiful decor, the bridal suite is gorgeous. Lots of room to stretch and relax with your ladies!
Hiring a professional wedding photographer you absolutely love and click with is such an important step to make sure that you can capture all the amazing moments you will have at your wedding. These photographs will act as a ticket for traveling back in time and having a look at all the beautiful memories you created with your loved ones.
I have been working as a professional photographer for over 8 years. Throughout that time I realized that the intimate moments in between the poses were the ones most cherished. My wedding work has been seen in places like The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Carolinas Magazine, Embrace Beauty Magazine, and many other leading industry publications. I’m sincerely grateful for every single one of them, and for the others yet to come. But none of that matters without the experience, the fun, and the results that everyone feels when they look back through their photographs.
