Steve and I met Audrina & Tylor at a bridal show in Gainesville this past January. They called after the expo to set up a meeting to discuss photography. We met, chatted and they chose us for their wedding! We photographed their engagement session in February. You can see that session HERE.
We arrived at the hotel the morning of the wedding. Steve dropped me off to spend the day with Audrina and her girls while Steve headed to their apartment with Tylor.
All of the girls’ hair and makeup was done by family and friends…
Audrina – you are BEAUTIFUL!!
Audrina & Tylor chose to do a first look with their parents and bridal party watching….
Before the ceremony, we had approximately 15 minutes to grab some photos. We had a storm rolling in and it was not happy…
Seriously – beautiful! I picked on Audrina and told her I was so happy that she chose to carry a Penn State bouquet in Gator country! 🙂
With thunder and lightning bouncing around, it was time to make our way back inside.
I LOVE this frog wall!
This location was absolutely gorgeous! So many butterflies fluttering around. I do think they were shy, though, because they didn’t come near the cameras. We were warned before entering to be very careful where we stepped. They like to land on the walkways. We saw that during rehearsal the night before but not so much on wedding day.
Due to policies of the Rainforest, Audrina & Tylor each had a real flower bouquet and boutonniere and a duplicate in silk. They were not allowed to bring in real flowers.
MR. & MRS!!!
This group was SO MUCH fun!! They were serious when needed and let loose when not. I love how they were themselves, loved their friends and had a great time!
This was taken at the request of Tylor’s mother. She and the best man had matching hairstyles!!! 🙂
How many people can say they had a MAMMOTH at their reception?! So cool!
Audrina danced with her brother while Tylor danced with his mom…
And then Audrina’s mom jumped in. 🙂
Audrina & Tylor wanted some photos around the museum with some of the exhibits. Ummmm…YES!!! How many times can you have a museum to yourselves?
ROCK ON!! Get it? Fossils? Rock on… Ehem…
The mammoth tusks create a heart. How cool – and romantic – is that?!
