Port St. Lucie Botanical Garden Wedding | Ally & Jerry

I was very excited to photograph Ally and Jerry’s wedding.  I loved getting to know them during their engagement session and  knew that it was going to be a beautiful Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens wedding.   This couple and their friends and family were so much fun!  Their wedding party traveled from……well, across the globe.  Ecuador, Cuba, Nebraska, Michigan, Paraguay, and Japan.  And those are just the ones I remember!!  Yeah, this couple must be special!

It was a pretty typical South Florida summer day.  Hot!  That, we expect and can handle, it was the rain that was looming overhead that worried us.  It poured (and I mean poured) through all of the pre wedding shots, the family formals, wedding party, and the first look.  They just rolled with it.  It was about an hour before the wedding and they had to decide whether or not to set up the outdoor seating.  The alternative would have proved challenging and would certainly not have been as beautiful.  Her dad, conveniently a meteorologist, decided they were going for it.  I can’t lie.  I was worried!  Florida weather is predictably unpredictable.  It would have been a mess if the skies opened back up.  But, they didn’t!  It was a little steamy after all that rain, but Ally and Jerry’s wedding couldn’t have been more perfect.

The Dress.  Simple, elegant, classic.

Beautiful!

Ally and Jerry, it was such a pleasure getting to know you and your family!  Clients like you are why I love my job!!

 Congratulations and best wishes for many years of fun and happiness!
