The wedding day was full of color, family, and love. We had the honor of photographing and filming a sweet first look between the couple before the ceremony. Chris may have been the first to shed a tear when he saw Veronica in her sheer, lace wedding dress, but we were all joining in at the end! After the wedding, the two spent the night dancing with friends and family before flying off to Tahiti (with us in toe!) for a tropical, destination honeymoon.
Veronica and Chris got married on the beach at a beautiful private resort in South Florida. Coming from a beach town, we asked why two Jacksonville natives were traveling down south to wed on a beach. (Not that we minded, but curious minds had to know!) The couple's answer made us fall in love with them.
Veronica and her family had been going to the resort since she was a little girl. Some of her fondest memories were on that beach. So, when it came time to say 'I Do' she knew exactly where she wanted to do it. Chris, who is just as much as an outdoors person as his bride was happy to bring their two families together in a place with so much sentimental meaning to her. We're so glad they made that choice.
Veronica & Chris
After the wedding destination choice, we knew family was everything to Veronica and Chris. In fact, we met Veronica while photographing her brother's wedding! So, we knew it would be important to the bride and the groom that we capture special moments with their loved ones. From a first look with Veronica's father to having Chris' sister visit the bride and the groom before the ceremony to family photos - it was a beautiful way to ring in their next chapter.
