After working with Meaghan Mulligan of Enviously Green Wedding & Event Planning on our beach shoot the other week, we joined up to put together our first styled wedding. Over the past month, we collaborated with several wedding industry professionals to put together this beautiful photo shoot.
The beautiful house you’ll see throughout is the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum located on 20 Aviles Street in the downtown area. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shoot at this beautiful historic coquina house that was built around 1798. The facility began renting out areas for weddings and events, so our timing was perfect. The beautiful courtyard, balconies, and the coquina walls add such character you don’t find in a lot of other venues. It really lends itself to great photo opportunities, I still have tons of shots that I saw that day that we weren’t able to get to!
A big part of a styled shoot is the table setting. With the help of Flower Works supplying the amazing centerpiece and Luli’s Cupcakes for their beautiful (and tasty) spread, our table really came together. Meaghan lead the styling and we assisted in creating the wedding favors, place cards, and all the little pieces to make the setting quite memorable.
The shoot would have been lacking if it wasn’t for our two models, Kaylee Ann Barker and James Broucek, who really shined with their hard work, talent, and ability to not sweat during this 96ºF shoot. Like any bride, Kaylee had a team of area professionals helping to create her amazing look for the special day. Hair by Renee Pendlay created the fabulous up-do while showing off the incredible hair “fascinator” by Destin-area Joanne Woskov of Facsinate Me, who also made the wedding veil. Local make-up artist, Jamie B, outdid herself with Kaylee’s look (and beyond that, her make-up held the entire shoot in our humid hot Florida summer weather).
Completing our bride was the amazing dress from Daniel Thompson Bridals, located over at 128 San Marco Avenue. To say it was stunning is not enough for her gown. She really dazzled everyone, including the passer-bys on the street screaming for our groom to kiss the bride. So when you see Kaylee blushing in some of the shots on the balcony – that was real. It would have been a shame to toss the bouquet that Flower Works created for the bride. The details in the stem wrapping is so cool – make sure to check out the detail in the photos. The groom’s boutonnière, also by Flower Works, pulled James’ outfit together.
After sixteen bottles of water and an afternoon and evening of photographing everything, we helped ourselves to Luli’s Cupcakes (What? They were going to go bad otherwise) and cooled off in the nice ocean breeze before heading back to Ocala. It is so great when everything comes together and being able to see the fruits of our labor through these pictures is award enough for everyone’s hard work. We really hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
