Jami and Julio were married at The Fountain of Youth in historic downtown St. Augustine, FL. They said their vows surrounded by family and friends with views of the intra coastal as the backdrop. One of my favorite parts of the day was during the ceremony, when the minister had the bridal party and their parents come up and gather around the couple to pray over them. Another one of my favorite moments of the day was during their first look. It’s always a special time, but Jami had attached four small pictures in lockets to her bouquet. They were pictures of special people who couldn’t be present that day. It was so obvious how much this meant to Julio by his reaction when Jami showed him. It was such a genuine and sweet moment.
Jami looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress. It was two pieces with a skirt and I loved the blush underlay! Julio and the groomsmen wore navy with gray vests and the bridesmaids wore different styles and shades of blue. This bridal party looked amazing! Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate how stunning Jami’s bouquet was-and Julio’s tie coordinated perfectly!
Jami had told me early on that sunset pictures on the dock were really important to her. It was a chilly, overcast and VERY windy day. Since we had done portraits earlier in the day, I wasn’t sure if they would still want to go on the dock. But, they decided to take a few minutes before they joined guests at cocktail hour to get those pictures she wanted. They were troopers in the cold and wind…but I’m so glad we went for it because it was definitely worth it and some of my favorite pictures!
From the time I met them at their engagement session it was obvious how happy they are together and their wedding day was a perfect celebration of them! Thank you for entrusting me to capture this special day and give you memories to cherish forever! I loved celebrating with you and I’m excited for you as you start this new journey together!
