LIZ + JOSH
La Playa Naples
Liz and Josh's airy oceanside wedding ceremony took place on the beachside lawn of the La Playa Beach and Golf Resort in Naples, FL., while the reception was moved indoors to the ballroom. While getting ready for the wedding, Liz and her bridesmaids were relaxing in the room, and enjoying a glass of champagne. The bridesmaids were wearing the most adorable matching pajamas. I grabbed a quick photo of the girls in their cute tropical pajamas before Liz slipped into her dress. Liz wanted to surprise her bridesmaids, so her mom assisted her with getting dressed in a separate room. Liz wore a simple White mermaid wedding gown where she looked stunning! As the doors opened the excitement and tears also flowed! It was a very awesome moment.
The bride's glamorous wedding day look looked effortlessly stunning as she walked down the aisle with her beautiful gown. And as Liz was escorted down the aisle by her father, everyone was in awe, and the tears flowed once again. Josh was waiting for her, looking classically handsome in a black suit. The bride’s gown stunned as its fit and flare complimented her curves perfectly. Immediately after the wedding, cocktails were served on the venue's gulf lawn, while their friends and family enjoyed the sunset. Florida florist signature florals wowed guests by transforming the reception space with breathtaking floral arrangements. Established Florida wedding planner and event coordinator Stephanie Meiser of Along Came Stephanie coordinated the entire day effortlessly and kept everything running smoothly from start to finish.
Every wedding is unique, that's why I love photographing weddings. What made this wedding unique was the love that was shared. Yes, there's love at every wedding, don't get me wrong. But, this is different. The love and support shared by each family member were mind-blowing. I'm fortunate to see this kind of love at a wedding, it was truly special.
