I'm always so honored when friends ask me to photograph their wedding days! Aubrey and I attended college together in Gainesville, Florida back in the day, and spent our days working at Publix together. Big P crew for life! When I heard that Aubrey and Aidan were getting married, I was so excited for her! Aubrey exudes the kind of happiness and carefree spirit that I wish more people in this world had. It's hard to describe the joy she had the morning of her wedding, and the sheer excitement of finally marrying the man of her dreams!
Aubrey and Aidan had a small, intimate wedding day in Florida. They got ready together in the morning at Magnolia Plantation, a super quaint bed & breakfast in the historic district of Gainesville. There was a quiet peace that morning as they prepped for their day next to each other. Little hidden pockets of light made for fantastic getting ready spots, and they smiled at each other as the big moment came closer.
As you can see, Aubrey and Aidan aren't a traditional couple and therefore, didn't have a traditional wedding! Their ceremony and reception was held at First Magnitude Brewing Company in Gainesville, and it was the perfect gathering place for their friends and family! Audrey's father walked her down the aisle to Aidan as the most important people in their lives watched, and they made a promise for forever through laughs and tears. It was a beautiful, intimate ceremony, and I'm so thankful to have been a part of it!
The reception was a blast, complete with cake fights and shots, selfie sticks and a live band that really brought the place to life! Inside, guests enjoyed board games and craft beer and nothing but good conversation.
it was truly an honor to photograph this wedding! Aubrey and Aidan, thank you for putting your trust in me to document your day!
On a side note, to my Florida friends, I will be marketing my services to the central Florida area beginning this year! There's a lot in store for my business in the next year, and expanding my wedding photography to Tampa and Gainesville is at the top of my list! Get in touch if you or someone you know in Florida is getting married soon and searching for a photographer!
