I am so thankful that my good friends, Hi-Leen and Joe referred me to this fantastic couple. Michelle and Jake are a perfect example of why I feel it’s so important to do engagement photos with my bride and grooms. We got to know each other in a laid-back, fun atmosphere. We were able to go into lots of detail about the wedding day, so I knew what to expect and what they expected of me. They rocked it at the engagement session, so I knew the wedding was going to be awesome! I love these two.
Their wedding was in Ft. Myers beach, at a sweet little beach house, right on the ocean. They got married on the beach, and the reception was outside on the deck. It was a very casual and comfortable wedding. They had 70 of their closest friends and family there, and their bridal party took up about a fourth of it! They have some of the most loyal friends. Jake is from Minnesota, and Michelle is from North Carolina, so almost everyone who was there had a thick accent from one or the other. I loved it!
Congratulations, you two! Hope to see you soon, since you’re now living in Orlando. 🙂
