Amber and Andrew put together such a romantic and elegant beach wedding day back in May, on the beautiful coast of Florida! Their venue, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach was PERFFF! While these two didn’t necessarily plan to end up in Florida, I seriously could not have envisioned a better day for them! What should have been a destination wedding to St. Lucia in 2020, WAAAYY back before the world shut down (ignore my flashbacks).. instead found itself in the middle of the sandy beach, underneath the blue sky. Andrew and Amber rounded up their friends and family from Philadelphia and put together a seriously stunning day. I am SO FREAKIN excited to share these photos with you!
Amber spent her morning getting all glammed up, with her two besties by her side. These three girls were SO much fun! I swear, I didn’t stop laughing from the moment I step foot into the bridal suite. Amber and her girls looked freakin adorable in their matching robes! I loved how intimate Amber’s bridal party ended up feeling. Every single person was so special to each other, and I was overwhelmed by the support! Amber looked GORGEOUS in her classy, satin and lace gown! My jaw was pretty much glued to the floor. After a crazy 2020 for everyone, I was so incredibly happy that Amber was finally surrounded by her people, getting ready to marry the love of her life.
I talk about how much I love first looks A LOT on here. They always serve as such a tender moment, and give you and your person a really special opportunity to connect as a couple. The morning of your wedding day tends to be filled with anticipation and butterflies, and I love capturing the way those all melt away when my couples finally see each other. These two lovers morning was SUPER eventful as well… I’ll keep the story short, but we ended up evacuating the hotel at one point while Amber was getting ready, due to a kitchen fire. Crazy, I know! However, these two didn’t let anything get them down! Amber and Andrew’s first look was super unique, and they had their entire bridal party cheering them on. This group was PACKED with energy, and kept the party going all day long!
Amber and Andrew shared such a sentimental and intimate ceremony with their people. I was OBSESSED with their floral arch, and I loved all their details. The sky was clear, and the ocean crashed behind as Amber and Andrew promised to spend forever together! Their ceremony was so perfect for them as a couple, and I was SO PUMPED to finally watch their wedding day dreams come true! Afterwards, I ventured down the beach with the newlyweds and grabbed the cutest photos of them. Their energy was AMAZING, and I had so much fun capturing them together, FINALLY as one!
Believe me when I say, the party REALLY started when the sun went down. This group knows exactly how to celebrate, and I had a damn good time! From endless tequila shots to belly laughter and embarrassing dance moves, I had the time of my freakin life! They had every person out on the dance floor! I left their day completely exhausted, and with 60+ new friends! I am so grateful to Amber and Andrew for letting me tag along on their wedding day, and I hope you all love these romantic and elegant beach wedding photos as much as we do!
