Sara and Matt’s wedding day at Nocatee Crosswater Hall was absolutely perfect in every way. The forecast had been showing rain for Saturday all week, and it looked even worse the morning of. However, living in Florida we know that the weather can change in a matter of minutes, and it did! The sun ended up being out all day which made beautiful light for pictures and their outdoor ceremony on the lawn as originally planned. One of my favorite parts of their day was the ceremony when Sara and Matt read their vows that they wrote for each other. I also loved how beautifully they blended traditions together. They had both a pastor and a rabbi to incorporate some of the Jewish traditions honoring Sara’s background.
After the ceremony we finished up pictures while guests enjoyed cocktail hour featuring signature drinks from the couple, a fun personal touch! Matt’s signature drink was an Old Fashioned and Sara chose a Margarita! The party continued upstairs with a delicious dinner, toasts and a lot of dancing! I think just about everyone was on the dance floor the entire night! I’ll have to say that one of my favorite parts of the night had to of been when Sara “iced” Matt when he was removing her garter! You’ll have to scroll down to see!
From talking daily about all things wedding related to running into each other at concerts, Sara and I hit it off from the get go. She’s just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside and I feel so thankful that our paths crossed! Being her wedding photographer was just the icing on the cake to me. (Or I should say doughnut because they love Good Dough and had a variety of their doughnuts for dessert! My people.) The love that Sara and Matt share together is so special and rare. It was an honor to witness it amongst their sweet family friends as well as capture the day so they will have memories that last a lifetime. I wish we could do it all over again!
