Chase & Kelly's wedding was seriously incredibly wonderfully amazing and it's because Chase & Kelly themselves are seriously incredibly wonderfully amazing. We are so happy to have been a part of this awesome day and to have experienced the sweet love that these two and their families share. Get ready for a lot of beautiful details, moments to treasure and a killer dance party!!
See those doggy bowls below? Those are Stella's and she is crazy adorable. You'll meet her soon. Just keep scrolling!
We rarely post formal portraits, but we just loved this location! One of the many reasons we LOVED shooting at the Postcard Inn.
This was the sweetest, most fun father/daughter dance we've ever seen!
We hopped out to the beach for a few more portraits before the party really got started.
Yep! That's Katie!! Hey, when the bride says, and I quote, "You're gonna ruin my wedding if you don't start dancing!" you gotta dance!!

From Chase & Kelly…
Favorite memories of the day: We have so many favorite memories, but here are some that standout the most:
Seeing each other for the first time.
Saying our vows and of course our first kiss as Mr. & Mrs.
Having all of our loved ones in sunny Florida on our special day!
Having my brother beat box during the wedding party introductions.
The special speeches from the Father of the Bride, MOH and Best Man are ones we will cherish forever.
Dancing the night away with all of our guests. We both were sore for couple days after the wedding. That's how much fun we had.
Sweetest memory of the day: Seeing Chase tear up during our first look. It was so sweet and unexpected.
Funniest memory of the day: There are so many funny memories, but the one that stands out the most is when Chase got in line with our guests during the final send-off with his glowsticks. He had to be told by our guests that the send-off was for him and he was supposed to be walking with the bride. Oops!
Advice for future brides: Be yourself. Be creative. Have fun. Soak it all in. Don't sweat the small stuff. Remember what the true meaning behind the day is all about. Relax and enjoy the day you both worked so hard for.
Advice for future grooms: At times it can feel very overwhelming with all of the preparation that goes on before-hand. This is supposed to be one of the greatest days' of your lives and that can get lost in translation. Try to relax, have fun, and enjoy your day!
Thanks goes out to: Our parents who helped us in so many ways to make our wedding day possible.
All our friends and family who traveled from near and far places to be with us on our special day.
Last but not least, all of our amazing vendors. We would hire each and everyone of you all over again if we could. You all are truly talented.
Extra special thanks to Jake & Katie for being so creative and amazing. You both are such talented photographers, and an even better couple. You guys felt like guests at our wedding and we wouldn't have had it any other way. THANK YOU!
We had to through this one in here... Jake and Stella having a few seconds of uninterrupted eye contact.
Chase & Kelly, thank you SOOO much for choosing us as your wedding photographers. We absolutely loved this whole day and are thankful to have been able to spend it with you and your families!
