My sweet little cousin Natalie is now a married woman! She’s come a long way from being kicked out of kindergarten for biting other kids :) Natalie and Jon were joined by a handful of close friends and family for their intimate beach wedding ceremony on the beautiful, white sand of Indian Shores, Florida. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a beachside luncheon at the Civitan Beach Club. I had triple roles that day- wedding photographer, wedding guest, & wedding planner. Natalie is a no-fuss kinda girl, so when I arrived in Florida a few days before the wedding, there were still some things to take care of. Do I smell a project?! Yep! Natalie, Samantha (Natalie’s sis), and I scoured craft store shelves & somehow weaseled our way into the wholesale flower store. Our lifelong family friend, Mary, is a fantastic florist & made the gorgeous bridal bouquet & Jon’s boutonnière. We pulled together as a family to create the centerpieces and cook the food. I’ll never forget how beautiful & grown up my little cousin looked that day, and I’ll never forget how Jon looked at her with so much love in his eyes…

Natalie’s “something borrowed” were the earrings I wore on my wedding day :)
Props to my Aunt Mary for this awesome bouquet!
One of the things I miss most about living in Florida are the white sand beaches.
They made a pretty cute kid, didn’t they?! Introducing little Miss Emma Lynne…
This is one of my top 3 favorite images from Natalie & Jon’s wedding. I’m so happy I happened to be looking in their direction when Natalie gazed up at Jon and flashed him this flirty little smile.
Getting a little choked up Jon? So cute…
Now if that face doesn’t say “I’ll love you forever” I don’t know what does.
Homemade centerpieces, woohoo!

This is another one of my favorites.
