{ casey + chad | jensen beach wedding | indian riverside park }

Despite a rainy interlude, Chad + Casey’s wedding in Jensen Beach, was just perfect. It was such fun to capture the super sweet couple and share their day.

Chad’s “first look” moment, was so moving… this picture says it all.

This overhead image of Casey twirling in the courtyard from four floors above is one of my favorites of the day.

On the bright side, at least the stormy skies gave us a chance to get some great umbrella portraits. This retro, Gene Kelly like shot on the pier reminded me of “singing in the rain.”

Earlier in the day, Casey + the girls got ready by the beach at at Hutchinson Island Resorts Sandpiper Villas.

Loved the bride’s funky splash of “something blue” shoes by j crew…

And her lovely bouquet of Calla Lilies and Hydrangeas with a hint of yellow, created by Ana’s Flowers…

Both looked great with her stunning ivory silk beaded gown by Mon Cheri.

Here Casey helps her dad on with his tie.

And mom gives her little girl some last advice before she becomes a bride.

The girls grab their flowers… and head out the door.

Meanwhile, over at the grooms condo… Chad’s parents help him get ready.

The groom’s preppy yellow j. crew tie was great, and the little blue sea horses were just the right touch for a waterfront wedding.

Chad and his boyz compare watches… because… well, watches are cool, that’s why!!!

Then head to the park for some portraits.

A birds eye view of the bride…

Before Casey and the girls head for the beach.

Once at Indian Riverside Park, Chad awaited the first look which took place under cover, to escape the raindrops.

As Casey made her way…

Right into his arms.

The couple spent some time taking portraits on the porch for a bit…

Then suddenly, the rain stopped, and out came the most beautiful RAINBOW.

Definitely a sign from the heavens. The skies cleared, and the sun returned.

Just in time for the bridal parties arrival.

The ceremony, took place in front of the pier before family and friends.

Following a lovely ceremony, the newlyweds walked up the aisle all smiles.

Pausing, before adjourning to their reception…

The headed up the stairs to their waiting guests… (okay, just one last kiss)

The yellow and navy theme ran thru the room… Each table was cleverly named after a city in the Maryland, where the couple are from.

After the first dance…

They toasted…

Then the bride shared a special dance with her dad…

And Casey escorted his mom to the floor.

The party rocked on to retro dj tunes… till the new mr+mrs had a “chomping” fun gator exit as guests waved them away with sparklers.
