KERRI + MATT - Jupiter, Florida Wedding - Part II of II

Kerri & Matt... just LOOK at how gorgeous they are! LOVE this photo of them as husband and wife. : )

Kerri & Matt got married at a beautiful church in Hobe Sound - St. Christopher Catholic Church. The priest who married Kerri's parents also married Kerri & Matt. How special is that? On the way back from the church, we detoured to stop at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse for some quick portraits. The reception was held at The Loxahatchee Club, which provided a beautiful backdrop for the (amazing!) party.

The day was full of emotion and charm. My favorite parts were probably seeing Matt tear up while Kerri walked down the aisle with her dad, as well as watching Kerri and Matt during their vows. And I captured more than a few laughing fits between Matt and his mom (they both have awesome smiles!), which tug at my heartstrings. I also loved the unique elements that were incorporated into Kerri's attire: her purse was made from her mom and grandmother's wedding dresses, and Kerri wore a gardenia, her late grandmother's favorite flower, in her hair during the reception to honor her.

Both families were just so friendly and FUN. I enjoyed every minute of this day! Please enjoy my favorites. : ) (And if you missed part I, you can find it HERE.)

How cute are the out-of-town baskets? A mini palm tree!!

So handsome! Loved the white tux coats.

Kerri's mom and dad... so proud.


These kids are SO precious.

LOVE this one.


GOOMBAY SMASH! The couple first met in the Bahamas, so they had signature drinks from their favorite island at the reception.

The toasts had everyone laughing!

Kerri was less than thrilled about taking cake to the face, but she was good natured about it. ; )

Love me some twins!

I'm not sure where this tradition started, but I like it.

Shout out to a past MTP bride & groom - hey heyyyyy! Looking good!

KERRI + MATT - Jupiter, Florida Wedding - Part I of II

Kerri & Matt got married in Jupiter, Florida (a beautiful place!) in early July. I met this awesome couple through another couple that I photographed in the Bahamas last year (love y'all!). Kerri & Matt actually met in the Bahamas; they couldn't be sweeter and more perfect for each other. I was lucky they chose me to shoot their rehearsal dinner and wedding. Here are some of my favorites from the night before the wedding! Don't miss the awesome animation at the end of the post of Kerri & her bridesmaids picking up Matt for a photo. Seemed like a good idea... : )

How sweet is this little girl? She had so many great expressions!

Before the sun went down completely, we stepped outside for some portraits. Beautiful light...!
