Florida Weddings are always so gorgeous to photograph and this one in particular stole a piece of my heart! Drew and Kim knew one another from Vero Beach and had mutual friends but did not begin hanging out until they were both in New York…a friendship grew into something more and the rest is history! When Drew popped the question and they started to plan their big day, it seemed like the perfect fit to get married at the Quail Valley River Club right in Vero Beach. The venue sits on the Indian River and has such a breathtaking view for a outdoor ceremony, something Kim knew she wanted immediately for their wedding day. The Groom’s mom is a local artist in the area and created a custom watercolor emblem of a laurel surrounded by a “K+D” which they used through out their decor and stationary suite. Kim and Drew wanted their intimate Florida wedding to have a English-Garden feel, filled with peonies, ranunculus, garden roses and wispy greenery, and let me tell you the entire day was truly stunning.
Kim wore a beautiful dress by Karen Willis Holmes and carried a vintage clutch from her aunt, while her sweet bridal party stood by her side in a variety of Champagne dresses. The whole day was so much fun capturing these two and all their friends and family, and it wouldn’t have been a celebration without a epic dance party and a sparkler getaway to finish off the wedding day. These two were so incredible to work with, and I am still in aww of what a stunning bride Kim was! She was so beautiful I needed tissues to get through the day. It was so hard to choose favorites, but here are some of my top selects from their big day.
