Meredith + Matt (and their adorable fur baby!!!) enjoyed a ride on a bicycle built for two, or in this case three, if you count the little passenger in the basket. A rainy day engagement session followed. Dodging raindrops, we improvised our way through, till we eventually sought refuge indoors. Btw, how great are the lines on that staircase, from all perspectives???

Amanda + Kenny’s wedding reception was held at Jupiter Beach Resort + Spa.

Following their ceremony at Holy Trinity Church, the couple stole away for a photo shoot at Royal Poinciana Chapel gardens.

The bride, a professional fashion model, was in her element. This image of her twirling carefree, is my favorite shot of the day!!!

Earlier in the day, Amanda and her girls readied at their suite at the Jupiter Beach Resort.

After hair and makeup was complete, the bride and her bridesmaids took a moment to laugh.

Before getting into their attire.

The bridesmaid’s buttercup chiffon gowns, by the Dessy Collection, hung on custom hangers all featuring their names.

Once in their gowns, the bride gifted them all with these dainty flower necklaces by Na Hoku.

Check out the eyes on this adorable flower girl.

After a touching note from her groom2b…

Her sister helped her into her beautiful Alfred Angelo gown.

With help from her bridesmaids.

On with the earrings…

Then the Manolos…

And don’t forget, the sexy garters.

Once dressed, Mom stopped in to help her daughter on with the lace trimmed cathedral veil.

Special flower delivery came from this little one.

The stunning bridal bouquet, featured huge yellow lilies + roses and white calla lilies.

Love this special moment with Mom.

Dad came over and got in on the love fest too.

Before heading out, Amanda shot this fun series beneath her veil.

Then the bridesmaids grabbed their yellow rose bouquets, and they were off.

The bride was a vision in this white limo.

Love this great playful moment captured with Amanda and her Dad.

Meanwhile, Kenny and his guys got ready in another suite.

A toast amongst friends…

Then on with the jacket, with help from his best man.

Mom adjusts her son’s boutonniere.

A handshake from dad.

And a reflective glance before he and the groomsmen left for the church.

In Trinity’s ready room, the bride worked the cameras as she ascended the staircase.

Once at the church, the groom posed with his boys, large and small.

The bride emerged…

And assisted this little ring bearer, then it was off to the alter.

The flower girl paved the way with yellow petals.

All eyes were on the bride as she came down the aisle escorted by her father.

Kenny looked on w/ anticipation for the first look at his approaching bride.

After a lovely ceremony, the couple emerged as husband and wife.

As their bridal party cheered.

Their portrait session took place at the Royal Poinciana Gardens.

This fountain area held special meaning for them, after all Kenny built it. Wow!

A visit to the seagull cottage…

Then off to the reception at Jupiter Beach Resort + Spa.

Guest enjoyed cocktails, as the reception space was set up.

The newlyweds entered the ballroom…

To a round of applause.

After a first dance…

Their best man and maid of honor gave toasts…

That brought the couple to laughter… and tears.

There was music…

And dancing…

and lots of celebrating.

Bouquets and garters were tossed and caught.

Cakes were cut…

Great groom’s cake!!!

As the evening came to a close…

We captured a few last tender moments.

The end.
