On this chilly Wisconsin night (for me at least if your somewhere warm use that wonderful imagination) lets go into the archives for a destination wedding I shot in 2014. Bethany and David are friends of mine so when they asked me to shoot their gorgeous day in FLORIDA I jumped at the opportunity! (hmmm…I am always willing to go somewhere beautiful and escape Wisconsin’s ever changing weather)
Bethany is one of those coworkers who became a fast friend. She is a genuine person who has a big heart and a great sense of style. She and her bridesmaids all decided 2014 was THE year as three of her bridesmaids were also getting married that year. With so many having huge plans this year you would think they would be preoccupied or maybe not put forth much effort for their friends big day….this could not be further from the truth. From staying up late helping finish details to waking up early to set up a beautiful breakfast these ladies did it all to help their friend have the perfect day.
This ceremony was officiated by the grooms brother with very special readers all set in front of the beautiful water backdrop. It was surreal.
The party was effortless (well besides the huge amount of work decorating that was apparent). The families laughed and danced the night away…often forming their own “circle of love” to celebrate Beth and Dave.
