Weddings are a special time in a person’s life not only because they found the one who their heart loves but because they have multiple reasons and events to get together with their closest friends and family. This month, I had the pleasure of traveling to Naples, Florida to celebrate Jessica Perry. There was not a single thing to complain about all weekend: good food, awesome weather and amazing company.
The Perrys graciously hosted all 12 ladies in their Naples home. When we walked in to this stunning home, Jess had adorable floppy hats and Kate Spade survival kits for each of us waiting on the counter! What a dream. The location could not have been more ideal for sunny pool days and loud Taylor Swift jams.
During the weekend, we were lucky enough to hitch a ride to the Ritz Carlton for lunch and sun bathing. This semi-private beach was the perfect location for fun coordinated bachelorette pictures! Even in Virginia, I am trying to find an excuse to wear my hat again.
I also had the pleasure of shooting Jess’ sister, Alicia Marie, for her fashion and lifestyle blog Heart of Sparkle. There is nothing I take greater pleasure in than helping other creatives follow their dreams. Alisha is only a college Junior but big things are coming down the pipeline for her; I can feel her success on the rise!
On the final night, we had the most magnificent catered meal. During dinner, each of us went around the table and said our favorite memory of of Jess. She means so much to us that there were definitely tears in the bananas foster! I am honored to be in her bridal party and have been loving photographing this stunning bride to be!
