There is nothing that feels better then photographing a wedding and feeling like you are part of the family. That is how I felt the entire time I was photographing Sean & Andrea’s Wedding.
I met Andrea while traveling in Antartica in 2016. Both of us share a love of wildlife, adventure and photography. When Andrea messaged me that she was going to be getting engaged and wanted to know if I could come to Florida to photograph her and Sean's wedding I was so excited! I got to meet Sean when I went down to photograph their engagement session in Ft. Lauderdale in December.
It all started in mid-April 2012 when Andrea was going out to play golf one afternoon at Harbour Ridge CC and asked if anyone from the golf staff was going out to play. Sean said he was about to get off work and would play. (Before this round, Sean and Andrea had not really talked at all since she had arrived in Florida the previous October). By the third hole, Sean knew he needed to get to know this new girl better. After he got up the courage to ask Andrea to play another round the following weekend and then very casually asking her to a local sports bar for dinner afterwards, the journey towards getting to know each other and falling in love began. After many, many rounds of golf together since then, we are excited to continue our journey as we become the ultimate twosome on April 28, 2018.
Andrea & Sean had their wedding reception where they met and lived at Harbour Ridge. A beautiful golf and yacht club in Palm City, Florida. The ceremony took place at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. A beautiful pink church with the most gorgeous stained glass windows. After the ceremony everyone was a bit hungry so we took a ride over to Culvers a Wisconsin based restaurant that made it's way to Florida. Andrea is from Wisconsin so it was like being home! And the food was good and Fresh! After the Culvers we ventured over to the House of Refuge where between the cliffs and the blue water we were in wedding photo heaven!
Andrea & Sean are getting ready to start the first chapter of their new life together in the Carolina's. And while Sean has whisked Andrea away I'm sure that a lot of Andrea's friends and family will attempt to pull her away for some more amazing adventures ! Congratulations to you both !
