A beautiful intimate wedding last fall with two of the sweetest humans I've ever met. When Megan inquired with me all the way from Canada my heart was so happy. She found me on Instagram (woop woop! lol) We instantly connected and I knew we were going to have the best time.
Megan and Kyle decided on a more intimate wedding on the beach with their closest family and friends here in Naples. It wasn't extravagant, there weren't tons of flowers and a unique arch. They didn't have a DJ, or fancy musician, and you know what? None of that mattered. The love they shared radiated so purely between the two of them that nothing else mattered besides saying their I do's and becoming one. As you will clearly see in their photographs. Megan was also 6 months pregnant at the time which made their memories captured even more special & I'm so glad I was able to capture some precious maternity portraits for them as well <3
Now you may be thinking from what I previously said that I'm not really into bigger weddings - that's far from the truth. I don't care how big and extravagant or how small and intimate your wedding day plans are - if you choose me I will be there doing my thang & being your right-hand girl no matter how your special day looks. I just want anyone reading this, especially newly engaged couples to know that it's okay to do something smaller, something that may not be the "norm."
Yet smaller more intimate weddings and elopements have become more popular these days and I think they are a really great choice for the couple's that it works for. I think when brides contemplate going a little less traditional and keep things smaller or eloping it adds some stress and anxiety because they don't want to disappoint anyone, but at the end of the day I truly believe that your wedding day is about the couple's & if they decide to elope, or only invite a couple handfuls of family & friends, then go them! If you decide to go smaller or elope just remember you can ALWAYS have a celebration with more people at another time. If you have any questions about elopements or smaller weddings let me know and I'll help guide you and give you insight into how it could work for you :)
Now to show off some cute love birds! (I call all of my couple's love birds...it's a thing, get use to it haha)
Okay okay, those aren't them, let's get to the real deal hahaha ;)
The sweetest group of people, seriously! They came from all over - even all the way from Canada, too! They truly loved Megan & Kyle so much.
Having a quick intimate ceremony and family formals right after leaves more room to focus on just the two of you & your love. Which is exactly what we did for Megan & Kyle :)
Those just married feels hahaha :D
Congratulations to these two! I cannot wait to meet baby Belle this fall <3
