Harborside Chapel Intimate Ceremony/ Olivia & Dusty

For better or worse, in good times and bad… The events of the past months are nothing any of us could ever have imagined, certainly not a sweet young couple just starting out their life together. No bride who has spent the better part of a year preparing for this day would ever wish to see all of their best laid plans collapse before the wedding day. For weeks the plans were constantly on hold. Until these two high school sweethearts, Olivia & Dusty decided once and for all the most important thing to them was to get married. This is what a wedding is really all about. The very last day of Florida Quarantine Olivia & Dusty said their vows in the most beautiful wedding chapel, before only their immediate family. This was unfortunately to the restriction of only allowing ten people in the building at one time. In the meantime, many of their friends and family eagerly waited outside to cheer them on while watching the ceremony on Facebook live. As they exited the chapel the guests were full of cheers as they had their first dance. The wonderful bridal party joined them later for a few portraits. After all, they spent a ton of money on their stunning suits and dresses. With all that said, In my honest professional opinion it was one of the most blessed weddings I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. The intimacy of the ceremony kept the focus on what is really important when vowing to spend a life together for better or worse. When Olivia contacted me to be her wedding photographer I must say I was ecstatic! I have known her since she was in high school and I have always thought the world of she and her family. She emanates true beauty and style and as you will see, made the most radiant bride!…. Dusty is known to be a young man of integrity and dedication. I think you will all enjoy a glimpse into the intimacy and magic of this special day! I think they will agree that they made the best decision to go ahead with the wedding. Cheers to the very happy couple!
