If you live in Florida like I do you know that life is a little calmer, a little hotter, and a lot more colorful than some other places in the world. Seeing we are in the middle of a heat wave here I figured it was the perfect time to bring a little bit of that Florida love to the rest of the world by showing you Sonia & Jose’s colorful summer wedding.
Historic St. Augustine is the backdrop for this magical day captured by Steven Miller Photography! We are in love with the fresh and bold color palette that Sonia chose for their big day. From the tea length royal blue bridesmaids dress to the stunning pink and coral flowers this is a wedding that screams Florida fun in the sun! We hope that Sonia & Jose are as happy in life as they look in these amazing images! Congrats to the happy couple!
Where do we begin with Sonia and Jose’s wedding day? This has to be one of our favorite weddings, such a fun couple and amazing venue and wedding team! We began capturing Sonia’s wedding preparations at a private residence in downtown St Augustine, with bridal hair and makeup services provided by Amanda Hopcraft!
The beautiful floral arrangements were created by Nulita Loder of Jade Violet Wedding Floral Boutique! Once the ladies were ready, we proceeded over to the Lightner Museum to meet up with Jose and set him up for their intimate first look right inside the Lightner Museum’s courtyard!
We then took them and their bridal party around the property for some fun portraits, and when we’d had enough of the Florida heat, we proceeded over to the River House for their waterfront outdoor ceremony on the Riverhouse terrace! We set up a secret reveal with Sonia and her dad, which was quite an emotional moment!
After their I-Do’s and the kiss during the ceremony, we captured family portraits and grabbed room shots of their reception set up in Riverhouse’s Grand Ballroom. DJ Jonathan of Feedback Entertainment provided the beautiful uplighting, photo booth, and rocked the dance floor throughout the night with great music! Bar and Catering services were provided by Executive Food Services, and the awesome wedding cakes were prepared by Crave Confections by Janel Waters!
We also had the pleasure working beside the Mikes of Fuel Video Productions. We snuck Jose and Sonia outside for a few more portraits closer to sunset, and would you believe they had chicken and waffles too! They had an awesome wedding exit via St. Augustine trolley from Trolley Tours!!! Special thanks to Dawn of The Wedding Authority, who provided excellent wedding coordination throughout the day!
