Life the past two months has been a bit crazy, but I am so excited to share with you Kristen and Matt’s GORGEOUS wedding that took place at The River House in St. Augustine!!
I honestly couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day for this sweet couple that is so special to me! Kristen and I went to high school together and had a few mutual friends, but we did not know each other that well. This time last year, we were in St. Augustine photographing their engagement session, trying to dodge the typical Florida afternoon shower. We had quite a bit of time to chat and get to know each other while hiding out under building overhangs waiting for the rain to stop!
Kristen and Matt are so precious together. They are FUN (you’ll see this as you keep scrolling), laid back, and so kind. The love they share for one another is so sweet, and the way Matt looks at his bride is just so sweet.
Here are some of my favorites (okay, a lot of my favorites) from their big day!
Kristen wanted to do a first look with her dad and it was SO sweet! I will definitely be doing this at my wedding next year with my dad!
This first look definitely goes down in the books as one of the sweetest ever!
Can we take a moment to look at how gorgeous the reception was? Keith Watson Events was so much fun to work with, and they are so talented!
Talk about an introduction! This bridal party knew how to hype up the crowd!
Kristen and her dad’s father-daughter dance was the BEST I’ve ever seen. Just wait for it..
Kristen and her dad surprised everyone with a choreographed mash-up of so many fun hip hop songs! The guests were going wild! (If you’re singing “Crank That” by Soulja Boy, while looking at that last photo, you are 100% correct!)
And then.. time to dance!
Kristen and Matt, it was a true honor to be a part of your special day. Your family felt like my own family, and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day for you two! I wish you all the happiness in the world as you embark on this journey into marriage together!
