Alex and I had a blast celebrating Mary and Ryan's beautiful Nocatee wedding. All day it looked like it was going to be a wet one - the rain just would NOT let up! With a 5:30 ceremony, we sat staring outside the windows searching for clear skies. Then, finally, at 4:55 the clouds parted and the sun started shining! The amazing Pastor Bob ran outside with a towel and started wiping down seats! When Mary walked down the aisle the only visible water was the tears on her cheeks.

Mary chose to do a first look with her dad and OMG, I can't even!! Dad's face is priceless!!! (BTW, Dad - I want a copy of our selfie! :))

Like I said, the ceremony turned out to be gorgeous weather! I'm SO happy Mary waited to decide inside or out!!

This bridal party was so fun! I love being able to laugh and joke while doing these portraits!

I stole Mary and Ryan away for these next pictures. I made them reluctantly drive away with me to get to a more secluded spot with no iPhones or guests (or guests with iPhones) ;) And it was SO worth it!!!

Mary's choice for colors was beautiful against the dark wood and warm tones of Crosswater Hall! LOVE the way that pink pops!!

Finally, the dancing began! McGee Entertainment ALWAYS gets the dancing going!!!

A private last dance and sparkler sendoff concluded their perfect (and DRY!) wedding.
