My parents, brothers and I went to the Nantahala River about 20 years ago to go white water rafting. Little did I know my kids first time white water rafting would be on the same river. We tried to describe what white water rafting was to the kids. We said it is a little bit like Kali River Rapids at Disney World. As we were going down the river they kept shouting “this is so fun”. I love that this rafting trip was a lot longer than a ride at Disney. Have you ever been white water rafting? If so, which rivers have you been on? This was the perfect river to start my kids out on. There was only one class three rapid (the last one) and the rest were class I & II.
One of our family traditions is to do a U-pick farm every year. Last year was a unique because we picked asparagus for the first time. This year we went blueberry picking at Morning Belle Farms in Woodbine, Georgia. The blueberries were plump and delicious. The farm has a facebook page that is more up to date as far as the amount of berries and hours.
A laid-back, intimate beach wedding just reaffirmed to me that I love beach people. They are so easy going and know how to have a good time. I was deeply honored to photograph this wedding. Aside from the officiant, only family members were present at the wedding. Two families became one. What better way to get to know one family than to meet the entire family. This part of Atlantic beach has so much history for the bride. She grew up coming to this beach to visit her grandmother, her cousin got married here and her parents have lived here as well.
These photos were taken in the middle of a hot day. The family were troopers taken photos in the hot sun. It was a gorgeous beach wedding. The bride spent the night with her crew at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort. It’s a beautiful hotel and the perfect place to relax and enjoy oneself before the big day. Everyone looked stunning and the bride was glowing. Their children and nephews were a part of the big day- which made it extra special.
After the wedding, they were going to have a family barbecue and celebrate the following days at Disney World. What better way to celebrate than with the most important people in their lives.ClickClick Continue after the jump to see more photos from this beach ceremony.
