French Country Estate Wedding | Marlene & John | Destination Film Wedding Photographer

Marlene and John are a super laid back, down to earth couple. Their wedding reflected their love for each other, family and the purity of nature. Hosted in their neighborhood park beneath a canopy of trees and stunning greenery arrangements, it was a French Country inspired al fresco affair. 

This wedding was so fabulous, it's been featured twice! First on Style Me Pretty, then on Carats & Cake.

The Ritz Carlton Resort Naples Wedding | Stephanie & Adam | Naples Wedding Photographer |

If you follow our blog, you know that we love weddings at The Ritz Carlton! From Sarasota to Naples, we love their wedding venues!  Stephanie + Adam chose The Ritz Carlton in Naples for their big day.  

When it comes to the proposal and engagement, Stephanie was completely surprised! She told us "I can say I was 100% surprised when Adam proposed...

On most Saturdays we try and take a spin class together. We woke up the morning of September 27th and like any other Saturday we went to spin class. Looking back Adam was acting a little strange but I didnt think anything of it at the time. After spin, he suggested we grab a bite to eat. I quickly freshened up but remained in my gym clothes. We went to brunch and then I said I needed to run some errands - I could see he was not pleased by this request, because I tend to turn one errand into several. At a certain point he had to drag me out of the drug store.

We went back to our apartment and upon walking in I noticed flowers all over the room and a card on the table, I was shocked, but then quickly assumed it was for my birthday which was a few days earlier. He handed me a picture book that he had our friend make (it was so cute). As I turned the pages I was reading his words to me, at one point I turned a page and immediately realized this was not for my birthday -- I started crying and then turned to the page where he was asking me to marry him! I could barely see him through all my tears but he had a diamond ring in his hand and asked me to spend the rest of our lives together. I was crying and hugging him all at the same time - and at one point said, I HAVE GYM CLOTHES ON!! It was all so funny, and amazing at the same time. He knew he had to trick me that day, otherwise I would have caught on. Later that night- he surprised me again with an evening full of friends and family at a huge celebratory dinner.  People had flown in from all over - it was perfect" 

Their wedding day was much the same as the proposal- lots of love and a huge celebration!

Naples Ritz Carlton Wedding | Brittany & Kyle | Naples Florida Destination Wedding Photographer

Britt & Kyle wanted an intimate, family-focused wedding. As you're about to see- it was full of touching moments! The big day was held at the Naples Ritz-Carlton (one of our favs!).  The wedding & cocktail hour was hosted on the North Beach and the dinner + dancing portion of the evening was at the Beach House. 

Brittany and Kyle both included their parents in the wedding party. How cute is that?!  Each of the "maids & matrons" wore a dusty- jewel tone gown of their choosing and carried a succulent bouquet. The men wore black suits (a classic option that no man can go wrong in, in our humble option, of course.)

But perhaps the most notable members of the day, aside from the bride and groom, are Britt's adorable girls, Kenadie(5) and Quinn(4).  Kyle is formally adopting these precious little ladies and ensured that they felt included in the ceremony, by exchanging rings and vows with them too. It was super sweet!

It is so obvious how much Britt and Kyle love each other- and how much they love joining together as a family.
