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.
During our trip to the Florida Panhandle, swimming in a natural spring was a highlight for me. We went to Ponce De Leon Springs State Park.
The natural spring is 68 degrees year round. It felt like ice dipping my toes into the water. I took over an hour to immerse myself in the waters. My toddler kept jumping in, screaming, scurrying out and then jumping in again. She was unable to comprehend why it was 90 degrees outside yet the water felt so cold. As one of the patrons said you “numb up” after you get in. It was true. Once you got over the initial shock of freezing water my body did numb up and I enjoyed swimming in the beautiful spring. It was so crowded but despite the crowds it was an enjoyable experience.
