Wedding gifts are always a special thought between a couple and their friends/family. When its ceremony coverage, it gives you a reason to go above and beyond.
A friend of mine contacted me and said that two of his good friends were going to do a very intimate and small ceremony at there vacation home. This was something new to me as I had never done something this small or intimate. When I arrived I meet Jim, the groom, and we both shared some laughs. We chatted for a few minutes of his expectations and then walked into the house.
Key West is known for the beach, the laid back mentality, and comfortable homes. When I walked in I found floral arrangements that matched the colors of the furnishings. They were fresh, colorful, and had a strong concentration on orchids. This time of year they all seem to bloom so strong with the winters sun. Complete opposite in my mind of what should happen. The table inside was set to match the mood. Elegant, intimate, and warm. There were His/Her coozies, engraved shot glasses, personalized champagne flutes, and candles all around to match the mood.
After I concentrated on getting the details covered, I did some single portraits with Melissa, while awaiting the arrival of the officiant, and then the ceremony commenced. Take a look at a few of my favorites!
