Looking back to June 28, 2013 - Jamie and Jim in Naples, FL

Looking back to June 28, 2013, I was so excited to get to the air and fly down to Naples, FL for Jamie and Jim's wedding.  After their engagement shoot, I knew that they would be so much fun to work with and couldn't wait to shoot their wedding.

See why I was so excited? 

So when it came down to the big day, it was easy.  Jamie and Jim were absolutely wonderful and I am honored to be their wedding photographer!  Now onto the big day!

Jamie and her girls were all smiles getting ready and throughout the entire day of her wedding!  Such a great group!

Just adding the final touches to Jamie's look!

Jim, excited to see his bride! 
Look closely at Jim's boutonniere... can you spot the tee?

The beautiful bride, herself.

The first look photo for Jamie and Jim was filled with emotion and was done a little bit differently than the traditional first look down the isle or bride behind him.  Jim walked down the isle toward his bride with his anticipation building in every step. The Jamie turned to see him and her face illuminated moment.  See for yourself!

Remember the tee?
If you didn't see the tee in Jim's boutonniere, see this one hidden in his dad's!  What a unique and personal way to add your special touch to the floral decor for the wedding day.

 Their flower girl dress was so perfect.  The ribbon to match the bridal party pulled her right in!

The lace on the bride's dress continued all the way up the straps.  The details in the lace were perfect.

Her earrings truly were the perfect addition to her wedding jewelry.

Jamie and Jim's wedding cake was simple, white and elegant.

Their cake was adorned with their last initial, all in white.  What an elegant wedding cake!
