Meeting Olivia and Micheal was love at first sight! Olivia and Micheal share a special sense of love and kindness that you feel when you’re with them. The admiration they have for their friends, family and especially for each other is truly special!
These college sweethearts Olivia & Micheal met during their sophomore year at Florida State University. Olivia said she knew Micheal was the one when they first met! A few years later, Micheal was down on one knee.
I’m so thankful for the opportunity I had to capture their wedding day, and now I can’t wait to share all the highlights with you!
For several weeks leading up to the wedding Olivia and I both watched the weather forecast…a 90% chance of rain! We texted back and forth as we got closer to the big day. I was so nervous it would rain during the ceremony and ruin my shots. I wanted their photos to be perfect. Olivia tried to ease the tension by telling me she would do a rain dance to keep the rain away and if that didn’t work not to stress and we would just move the venue inside. When the big day finally came, unfortunately so did the rain clouds. Good thing the stunning Lakewood Ranch Country Club had the indoor venue backup plan already in place, which Olivia and Michael happily took advantage of. Nothing could dampen the mood for this lovely couple on their big day!
When Olivia walked down the aisle in her wedding gown, no one could take their eyes off her. Especially Micheal! From the time getting ready with her best friends to the moment she raced on to the dance floor, Olivia was absolutely adorable. The way Michael held her close during their first dance made me believe in happily ever after!
One of the truest joys in my work is preserving the beauty and love shared amongst closest friends and family.. A wedding is a day of unconditional love. Sabrina was the maid of honor and she was the best! She was there for Olivia every step of the day! She is a true best friend!
So, as Olivia and Micheal celebrated the best day of their lives with the people they loved most, I couldn’t help but share in their joy clicking away with my camera!
Congratulations Olivia and Micheal on your new life together! I can’t wait to hang out with you again soon!
