JENNIFER & TODD ACREAGE PALM BEACH WEDDING
Couture Bridal Photography is hired to capture a romantic luxury Backyard wedding in the Acreage in Palm Beach Florida
Jennifer and Todd chose to host an intimate and cozy wedding at their home in the Acreage in Palm Beach Florida. They chose me as their wedding photographer after meeting me at a family members charity event that I photograph every year. Jennifer wanted the best wedding photography she could get without breaking the bank. Jennifer also wanted to make sure that she could spend the most amount of time with her closest family and friends.
Jennifer and Todd decided to hire me for their wedding photography, but the twist was to take beautiful bridal portraits days before their actual wedding day. This would allow Jennifer and Todd to get some extraordinary bridal portraits that were fun, romantic, elegant and timeless yet spend their wedding day with their family and friends. Some of which traveled from far away to attend.
The Bridal Portrait Session on Worth Ave. Palm Beach Florida
We decided Worth Ave. Palm Beach would be the perfect setting for their bridal portraits. Worth Ave. is a personal favorite of mine for the beautiful architecture and hidden nooks and back alley walkways that make for a variety of photographic possibilities time after time. Additionally, it is easily the most whimsical area for engagement and wedding photography at any time of day or night.
We met on worth ave. across from Wally Findlay art Galleries where my brother happens to be the Director and we walked west using elements of Worth avenues streets, alleys and walkways to create beautiful portraits. The day was bright and sunny and i used natural light photography along with artificial lighting to create the majority of their bridal portraits.
the wedding day in the Acreage Palm Beach County
Wedding day was the following saturday and I started setting up my speed lights on stands anticipating the coming evening since this was a completely outdoor wedding ceremony and reception. I met with Jennifer and we started with just a few snapshots as she had her make up done by a family member. I then worked on capturing candid photos of family and friends interacting on this very beautifully staged outdoor wedding.
The wedding ceremony was a short extremely romantic christian wedding ceremony that followed after a really delicious buffet styled meal. There was an abundance of beverages and guests were having a blast before the reception started.
The ceremony was really beautiful with an arch that provided the perfect background for wedding ceremony pictures. When the ceremony was complete the party was on!
I photographed Jennifer performing her first dance with her husband Todd and I was able to capture some very delicate and intimate moments as they danced. The following dances with their parents were equally as beautiful especially Todd's mother crying tears of joy that her son married such a wonderful woman.
The cake cutting was fun for the family as Jennifer and Todd threatened each other with a face full of cake with Todd finally getting some on his face with a surprise move from Jennifer. The cake was served and bride, groom and guests danced into the night!
This was a beautiful backyard wedding day in Palm Beach County Florida!
