I have been looking forward to shooting a wedding in Seaside since moving to the Gulf Coast in 2010 and finally, here we are!! Elise + Alan currently live in Australia (!) and traveled all the way to Florida for their beautiful + intimate destination wedding. I met Elise as she was getting ready at the Chatham House in Seaside + I could have stayed there all day taking pictures! This was seriously one of the coolest houses I’ve ever stepped foot in! After a few photos around the house, we made our way to Eden Gardens State Park for their lovely ceremony where Alan dedicated his life to his “best mate” and Elise couldn’t contain her pure excitement + joy to marry the man of her dreams. Elise + Alan didn’t have a bridal party, so after the wedding we were able to focus on lots of pictures of just the two of them before making our way to Elise’s parents’ beautiful cottage on the beach in Seaside for a few more pictures + champagne + cake! These two couldn’t have been sweeter and I am overjoyed to have shared these special moments with them! So much happiness!
Fittingly, Elise had an Australian sixpence in her shoe, complete with kangaroos!
I don’t usually include family pictures on the blog, but I just love the way she is looking at him!
Those trees! AHH! So pretty!
