The only thing that sparkled more than Rachel’s beautiful ring was her smile. Throughout the entire day, Rachel was grinning ear to ear. I especially loved how their portraits turned out, because you can’t fake real joy and happiness and I felt like that shined through.
The two were married at the Naples Ritz Carlton and if you’ve been there, you know why it’s such a spectacular place to be married. The steps and courtyard outside, provide a beautiful ceremony location where the couple and wedding party are slightly elevated for easier viewing – you don’t want to miss that magical “you may kiss the bride” moment. Guests sit in a very serene space around fountains and beautiful greenery. We headed to the beach for a few photos after their nuptials made it official and then for a night of celebration at the reception.
