The Vice-McNeil Wedding | Pensacola Beach, Florida

Blissful- that’s really the only way to describe Jeanna and Keith’s wedding day. We were so blessed to photograph this sweet couple and their beautiful wedding at Portofino Island Resort at Pensacola Beach, Florida. {You may remember these two from their super fun engagement session.}

Jeanna and Keith couldn’t have custom-ordered more beautiful weather for their October 1st wedding. The sun was shining, and the temperature was perfect as Thomas and I headed to meet the bride and her bridesmaids Saturday morning. They were busy as bees in their room at the resort. Excited conversation and hairspray filled the air. The ladies were curling their hair, putting on makeup and chatting about wedding day details.

After the bridesmaids got Jeanna in her dress, in unison, there was an audible gasp. She was perfect. {I looooved her dress.} It was elegant and formal, but it had the perfect weight and movement for a beach wedding. Oh – and it had pockets. {Swoon!} She looked stunning. After taking a few photos of Jeanna alone, we found her dad, and headed to meet her groom. Jeanna had decided that she wanted her dad to take her to meet Keith for her first look, which we loved.

Keith was thrilled to see Jeanna, and she was equally as excited to see him. I think my favorite part about their first look was the little spin she did to show Keith her dress when they first saw each other. It was the sweetest.

The day was beautiful. From the flower Jeanna wore in her hair, to the boutonnieres, bouquets and centerpieces – everything was gorgeous. The bridesmaids wore beautiful deep blue dresses, and the honorary bridesmaids wore pewter. The groom and groomsmen looked dapper in their khaki and white. The simple white bouquets with pops of green were just right for this beach wedding- simple and elegant.

During the ceremony, it was completely apparent how much these two loved each other. The look on Jeanna’s face as she walked towards her groom said it all. Jeanna and Keith’s minister performed a “knot commitment ceremony,” in which he tied their hands together, showing that they were now bound together for life, as husband and wife.

The whole day was an absolute dream – beautiful place, amazing weather, handsome couple, awesome guests, and most importantly – love. Jeanna and Keith’s love for each other, and the love their family members and guests had for the two of them, was so apparent, that it seemed to overshadow everything else. The flowers were beautiful, the dress was stunning and the beach was glorious, but the love between Jeanna and Keith out-shined all of the pretty decor and details. As it should.

Jeanna and Keith, you guys are the real deal. We are blessed to not only call you our clients, but to call you our friends. We are so glad that we have gotten to know you and were able to be present for {and photograph} such a beautiful day in your lives. We pray that you guys share a marriage filled with joy, laughter, companionship and more love than you even knew possible. {We know you will!}

    Such a beautiful day. Cammie and Justin truly waited on the Lord to bring together a perfect mate for each of them, their deidcation to the Lord first was the common bond that brought them together. I praise God for the union of these two precious children. Thank you Thomas and Sarah for capturing such special memories.ReplyCancel
