Ericka & Jacob’s Ft. Myer’s Beach Wedding

I love destination weddings and have been privileged to photograph a couple here in Michigan.  Ericka and Jacob’s was my first out of state wedding and it was amazing!  What I love the most about destination weddings is how relaxed they are.  Since most couples that are planning a destination wedding choose somewhere close to where they will be staying, there seems to be less pressure and stress on the wedding day.  Everyone is pretty much in “vacation mode”, just getting ready to celebrate.

Ericka and Jacob were married in November at the Diamondhead Beach Resort in Ft. Meyers Beach, Florida.  It was a beautiful celebration of love and the joining of families and I couldn’t have been more honored to be a part of their special day.  We started off at the Mariners Boat House and Beach Resort where everyone was getting ready…

Ericka’s dress was beautiful and she had it customized to make it perfect for a beach wedding!

While the girl’s were getting beautified and ready in one room…

Jacob and the guys were getting ready next door…

I always love it when my brides choose awesome colorful shoes!

Jacob made this especially for Ericka, he did such a great job and it was perfect for their ceremony!

Jacob looking handsome as ever…

Ericka was truly glowing with happiness…

I think everyone should get married on a beach!

Ericka and Jacob love to laugh, joke and be silly with each other.  And I love that they played a little trick on Ericka.  When it came time to ask if anyone opposed, all of the guests pulled out little tamborines that were buried in the sand at their feet!

Portraits on the beach at sunset?  Yes please!

Ericka and Jacob, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your wedding!  It was truly an honor to be included in your special day with your family and friends.
