First of all, I got so lucky with these two! Later last year, I found myself waiting outside Ponce Inlet for their engagement shoot. At that time, we hadn't met in person. Every time a couple walked in my direction and made eye contact, I would say, "Jenny? Troy?" Every time it wasn't a match. During sunset, Ponce is a popular spot for couples engagement sessions! Finally, a couple approached me and said, "Jenn?" I was like, "YASSSS!" But in my head I was thinking, WOW, how did I get this lucky? Jenny and Troy if you don't already know, are THE CUTEST couple, and they both look like models! Literally, the model couple. As beautiful as someone can be on the outside, it doesn't matter if they aren't the same inside. Within seconds of meeting these two, I knew they were special. They were fun, they were a little nervous, and they brought beer! They have a wonderful and spectacular connection together, and I could tell they were, and are, so in love. I couldn't wait for their wedding day which would be just a couple of months later.
The Salty Mermaid is this quaint little hotel nestled right between the beach and Flagler Avenue. It features adorable little rooms, and a wonderful backdrop for a wedding: the beach. The weather was perfect and Jenny walked down the aisle toward her soon-to-be husband right during sunset. I'm pretty sure one of the sweetest moments I've ever photographed was right after Jenny and Troy took hands at the alter, that she looked right at the photograph of her late Father on the chair in the front row. It brought tears to my eyes, as did the rest of the ceremony.
The rest of their evening was so much fun to capture! Their families are as exciting and happy as they are, and to see everyone up and dancing the whole night was a treat. The evening, after a grand sparkler exit, led guests down some steps to the sandy beach for a bonfire, which was where my assistant Daniella and I left them to their party!
Thank you so much for allowing us the pleasure of being a part of your wedding day!
