I’ve been SO excited to share this wedding with you! Julia and Dave’s day was nothing short of perfection. I mean, it was a destination wedding in Florida… and it rained the entire day… but it really was such an awesome day. Instead of allowing the rain to turn their day into a bummer, they embraced it. 🙂 See Julia’s answer at the end of this entry to “If you could do it all over, would you change anything?”… that about sums up their amazingness. 😉
See that pretty blonde on the right? That’s Nicole… we photographed her Chicago wedding in 2010 where Julia was a maid of honor. 🙂“So get this…” Doesn’t it look like that’s what he’s saying? 😉Transposing his vows from his iPad to index cards.When I arrived Julia asked me… “Should I wear my hair down or should I put it partly up?”
I asked, “How does your hair hold a curl?”
“Don’t you usually wear it down?”
The bridesmaids chimed in… “Yes, always.”
“Then yes, no question… wear it down!”
On that note, I’d like to take this opportunity to give you all my 2¢ (you guys know I’ll take every chance I can get to give my advice!)… I’m a big believer in looking like a beautiful version of yourself on your wedding day. If you wear your hair down usually, do that. If you don’t wear a lot of makeup, don’t go crazy. I mean, just my 2¢. (For more Bobbi tidbits, be sure to go “like” the Facebook biz page 😉 )
An another note, how GORGEOUS is Ann’s dress?! One of the most beautiful Mother of the Bride dresses I’ve ever seen!
OHHHH JUUUUUULIAAAAAA!!!! You’re SUCH a beautiful bride! For REAL! And the hair down?! Man oh man, you’re gorgeous!None of us had an umbrella on hand… so they improvised!
Julia’s dad met her in the trolly before the ceremony.Their ceremony was so genuine and sweet. Loved every second.
Reading his vows.This was their back up location to their originally planned outdoor ceremony… REEEEEALLY?! Your BACK UP location?! It was awesome. 🙂YOU’RE MARRRRRIED!!!!A 2013 addition to the bbmk umbrella collection… white! Hey bridesmaids, we’re photographing all of your future weddings… just thought you should know in advance. 😉
DAAAAAAAMN HOT TAMALES!
I’m not gonna lie, shooting in the rain was a weeeee bit stressful… but this team rolled with the punches like CHAMPS!
OH SO enchanting!Dave’s siblings gave a most memorable toast!
It’s tradition! 😉Dave’s expression? Priceless!
Such a fun reception!
Notice the cups? When the dancing started the bar switched to clear plastic lidded cups w/cute straws; now THAT’S genius. Goodbye spills!The guests spontaneously started singing “God Bless America” right as Julia and Dave exited through the sparklers. It was the most hilariously perfect end to such an amazing day. My favorite ❗
Julia, Dave, family, friends… thanks for making the most out of what many would have allowed to put a damper on their day. You guys are an incredible bunch and I can’t wait to see you all again!
Much love friends.
Oh man… that hairdo?! My hair and the rain are NOT friends. I actually have pretty curly / wavy hair naturally so I knew that wearing my hair up was the only option. Though I felt like a hot mess all day. bride+groom+bobbi+groomsmen with umbrella+two videographers. 🙂
holy hot tamales. beautiful couple. beautiful images. (as always!)
Awesome! As always. And the dance floor looked Ridiculous! Love how effortlessly you and Mike tell the story of how much fun everyone was having.
I loved this!!! It also encouraged me to upgrade from chinsy black umbrellas to pretty ones… just in case. They fit perfectly in our tripod bag we already have so why not??
That couple AND that tree are gorgeous!!
Love every single one. Thank you both SO much for being there and capturing it all so beautifully. We are thrilled!!
I keep looking at this! What a wonderful memory. Thanks for capturing this special day.
oh Bobbi! these are fantastic- as usual! and your hairdo? thats me!! every day! lol
Come on, you guys!! These are gorgeous (as usual) and I love your ability to make lemonade (awesome images/memories) out of lemons (rain).
wow, wow, wow, just gorgeous! and happy and fun!! 🙂
Beautiful day! PS I would be that SAME hot mess Bobbi! You worked it OUT!
You can’t even tell that it’s raining! No one looks wet or ‘soggy.’ Everything looks so magical and amazing! BBMK at their finest! Amazing!
I had my wedding reception at Walker’s Landing, your pictures of the ceremony are beautiful & made me more than a little nostalgic!
You guys are just so good. Rain or shine! 🙂
I looove her dress. Gorgeous bride.
the bride against that blue wall.. stunning! and that very first pic of her admiring her wedding day beauty, perfection. love it. i love them all. of course. xx
Amazing! I LOVE how in every image the bride is so happy! Her smile is so contagious! Beautiful captures!
Amazing photos!!! Totally gorgeous bride!
Love! And I love her hair down! And I love the umbrellas. And I love it all!
Seriously my favorite wedding from you guys ever. This is beyond beautiful. 🙂
These are great, even with all that rain, of course! I have to say my favorite thing is that everyone broke out into God Bless America! That is hilarious. Also, Julia and Dave’s advice for future brides and grooms can be good advice for us all (replacing ‘vendors’ with ‘all the people you will encounter’)! And being flexible is key! Those two are good to go! 🙂
oh my goodness Bobbi.. amazing, amazing, AMAZING photos. you’re the BEST!
you guys always always blow it out of the park! Amazingness every time!
I’m so late on checking out these photos, but gosh these are so gorgeous! I would’ve been a MESS if my Wedding day got rained on, but you are so creative & these are such happy photos! Love!
I knew from the look on her face in that first pic that this was going to be good!!! You guys rocked it out, I love how you two are always going above and beyond for your couples, you’re photographers, bustle’ers, coordinators, hair and make up consultants, weather gurus, comedians and hot tomales!!! If you look up “total package” in the dictionary there would be a picture of the two of you! Love
