It was the weekend that hurricane Sandy was sweeping past the coast of Florida on it’s way to wreaking havoc on states further north. We were flying in to shoot Kim & Andriy’s wedding unsure of what would be waiting for us when we arrived in Jacksonville. We heard numerous news reports of high winds and crazy rain expected and were crossing our fingers the whole time hoping that this beautiful garden wedding would still go on without a hitch. Lucky for all of us hurricane Sandy kept her distance from the Florida coast and although there was wind and overcast skies we really didn’t see much of her at all at this beautiful wedding. The clouds kept temperatures cool and the afternoon wedding went on perfectly with the guests gathering in the Italian garden at Jacksonville’s Cummer Museum of Art along the St. John’s River. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony where these two could profess their love and devotion to one another in front of friends and family from near and far. We loved the art deco theme that Kim planned for the day and all the lovely gold and black details she incorporated into the reception. It was an elegant and stunning event that was filled with Ukrainian tradition, tears of joy and lots of love.
Kim & Andriy, we have so many more lovely images in store for you two. For now though we hope you enjoy this little preview of what is yet to come. Congratulations to you both and it has been an absolute pleasure documenting your love story.
Lots of love,
Mel & Brad
