Good morning friends! The next wedding was the perfect combination of natural meets DIY with a whimsical flare. It’s no secret that Robbins Lodge in Davie, FL is one of the most charming venues for small intimate weddings and we were thrilled for the opportunity to photograph an event there. Right from the moment I met Joanna and Charlie I knew they would be such an easy and lovely couple to work with. From their best friend story to the little details of how she declared her feelings only to then have an elevator door separate them, to how he proposed and surprised her and ultimately to how she described she wanted her day to be. She was definitely the kind of bride that was meant for me. Thank you Joanna for finding me! We loved the time we spent with you and your loved ones.
My favorite part of Joanna and Charlie’s wedding day was the undeniable bond all the family and guests had with the couple. They all enjoyed, celebrated, and even cried with them as this most important day arrived of finally becoming one. I had been mentioning to my assistant Lester how much I wanted one of the grooms of my next weddings to really cry when he first saw his bride, and Charlie without even knowing it, fulfilled my emotional groom wish list. I knew I had to photograph the bride coming down the aisle, but I wanted to watch him right until the moment he would take her in his arms. Joanna and Charlie, thank you for choosing us to witness such an intimate and meaningful celebration in your lives. I truly feel that you did the very best in making this day all about your marriage because all you really wanted was to be together. We could of easily shot portraits for two hours at the park because to everyone’s surprise the day was absolutely gorgeous after a forecast of all day rain. Joanna and Charlie, you two were just meant to be. Here are my favorites from your sweet wedding day.
Special thanks to the vendors that made this wedding beautiful
