There are certain types of people in this world that just exude happiness + positivity and Carley might as well be their leader. From the moment we met, I knew she was going to bring her beaming, beautiful charm into all aspects of her wedding to her love, Dylan. From her handmade earrings + breathtaking florals by Fiore to her gold foil invites + pure silk gown, I was surrounded by the prettiest details to start the day. Later, as we witnessed Carley + Dylan’s first look + began our portraits in her parent’s front yard, we were graced with the best weather of the year, temps in the mid-70s and a slight breeze. You can’t ask for better! It truly was the perfect day and I have been excited all week to share it with you! To Carley + Dylan – THANK YOU! You guys are the reason we do this. Enjoy these memories from an incredible day!
Ready to see Dylan!
Meanwhile, next door, Jeff was with the guys – quick side note – I’m so proud of all of his hard work recently! He has been shooting alongside me at almost every wedding this fall and he continues to amaze me with his talent!
LOVE this one! Go Jeff!
Time for their First Look!
I’m obsessed with Carley’s color palette! So perfect for an October wedding!
I just love Carley + her sister, Ashley. They are the best kind of sisters – best friends!
She’s the best! Love her!
Dylan + the guys weren’t too bad themselves! Such a handsome group!
The dapper Culley brothers!
My favorite part about their photo location: it’s right outside Carley’s parent’s front door! Beautiful AND convenient. Two things every photographer strives for!
The light. Oh, the light. I want to bottle October light and sprinkle it everywhere.
One of my favorites!
Next, we made our way to the church for their beautiful ceremony!
While I was inside the church taking photos of the processional, Jeff snuck outside for a quick moment with Carley and her dad, Bob. Priceless.
Since we had already taken most of their portraits prior to the ceremony, we only had a few quick family shots to take at the church before heading over to the Palafox House for their gorgeous reception!
LOVED that Carley + Dylan had Bushwhackers at their reception – quintessential Pensacola!
What an amazing night! Congratulations to Carley + Dylan – we just adore you!
