Jonathan and Bailey are MARRIED!!! If you read my post about their engagement shoot, you know how much I just adore these two! The entire day was filled with love, romance, and happy tears. Despite the quick change of plans, their wedding day was nothing short of perfection!
Two weeks before their big day, Jonathan and Bailey had to re-plan almost everything due to the devastation Hurricane Ian brought to SWFL. Their original venue on Sanibel Island was affected by the hurricane so they quickly went on the hunt for a new venue and came across The Fernery in Fort Myers, Florida. When Josh and I walked into the ceremony site we could only say one thing… WOW!
We started our day hanging out with the girls as they got ready. The house was filled with relaxed vibes and good music! I had so much fun photographing all of Bailey’s gorgeous bridal details. When you look you will see, she simply has the best taste!
The wedding ceremony was held in the courtyard at The Fernery. Let me just say.. it was stunning! The courtyard is surrounded by beautiful Palm Trees. Their sweet Laberdoodle, Charlie, ran down the aisle to deliver the rings. One of my favorite moments was when Bailey started walking down the aisle with her father. Jonathan could not keep back the tears as his beautiful bride, his best friend, walked towards him. As they exchanged their vows, so much laughter and joy filled the place.
After the ceremony, we captured photos with the lively bridal party, dreamy husband and wife portraits, and some even pictures in their Rolls-Royce getaway car! Then we all had the most delicious dinner and danced the night away in the courtyard!
The whole day was beautiful. It was difficult to pick just a few for the blog. Enjoy scrolling through a bunch of my favorites!
I love first looks between the bride and her bridesmaids! Their reactions are simply the best!!
Bailey and her father have the sweetest relationship. There was not a dry eye during this father/daughter first look!
This beautiful day is one we will never forget! Bailey and Jonathan, thank you for the honor of photographing your wedding day! We love you both!!
