Leslie and Chase were referred to me through a mutual friend and I couldn't be more thrilled about it! They will wed next May and I cannot wait! Leslie has impeccable taste and will be picking colors such as mint and gold for her big day in Jacksonville. But first we had to plan this engagement session! :) When Leslie and I switched emails back and forth we both decided that St. Augustine, Florida would reflect their "wedding personalities" the most- for it is known for historic grandeur, oak Florida Oak trees, Spanish moss, and a true reflection of yesteryear. We knew it would be the perfect compliment to their regal venue at Epping Forest Yacht Club. The vintage yellow VW beetle (I believe Chase said it was a 1974 model) was purchased brand new by the grooms (Chase) father and was the setting where he asked Chase's mom to marry him! How DARLING is that?! And he so kindly let us use this sweet piece of history for his sons engagement session. Isn't is just lovely? I am so excited to present to you this cute little couple modeling a Shea Hopely Flowers bouquet and all the romance you can stand. Magnolia Street was our main setting where the oaks canopied the road and we chose to finish up their session on the Mantanza's River, incorporating the sail boats, yachts, and a wine picnic into the theme. So without too much yack'ied yack yack, enjoy these cute little love birds, because isn't love sublime?
I ust received this awesome email from Leslie & Chase and I had to post it... WHAT A COINCIDENCE!
"Chase and I sat down and looked at the blog together and let me just say... we couldn't be happier!!! I absolutely love the way our shoot came out. Thank you once again for everything...and just simply for being YOU!!! I am so happy we have the BEST photographer to shoot our big day! Have a great evening! I will be looking at the blog a few more times tonight I'm sure... :-)
This is funny. The day of the shoot - Sept 21st, 2013 - was exactly the
40th anniversary of the date his dad bought the bug. He showed us the
original receipt as well as the sticker from the window on Sunday (LOL) - dated September 21, 1973. The amazing part is this is all a coincidence and never planned! Love is crazy. :-) "
