Sydney reached out to me a few months before her wedding. When we face-timed I was secretly jumping for joy at how much we connected. I was so excited when I walked through the door and saw her surrounded by her bridesmaids with her Starbucks cup that read “bride”. Isn’t that just the sweetest? Spoiler alert: It gets so much sweeter. Sydney was one of the calmest and charming brides I have ever photographed. Throughout their day, everything just flowed so naturally.

Wow! Pulling up to Ever After Farms, I was in shock at how gorgeous the blueberry fields were. For a moment, I forgot I was in Florida! Chante and Ben booked me a few weeks prior and asked if I had ever photographed a wedding at this unique wedding venue and I explained that I hadn’t but after seeing the photos online, I knew it would be a dream to photograph at! There is a gorgeous barn filled with a wall of beautiful glass windows overlooking the vineyard. Besides the amazing nature surrounding the venue, the farm also has a gorgeous swing covered in florals and white carriage perfect for wedding photos.
