Sheldon + Holly ~ Gainesville Florida | Queen of Peace + Sweetwater Wedding

Sheldon + Holly| Florida Gainesville Wedding

The sun beamed down over the Catholic Church on a a bustling Saturday morning. The Queen of Peace Catholic Church was the ceremony choice for Holly and Sheldon, after all, it is the church that they attend!. The day was a beautiful, cool Florida day. Which is rare in Florida, but the buzz couldn’t be mistaken. A real life fairy tale was about to begin!

Holly and Sheldon met at the University of Florida where they shared a class together, but they didn’t speak to each other until they were meant to meet again when Holly was waiting for a bus on Campus…. and Sheldon just happened to be walking by. The rest is history and here we are!

After popping the question, Holly and Sheldon started to plan a dream wedding, and what a dream wedding it was. They chose Sweetwater Inn as their reception choice, which is rich in southern charm and located in Gainesville, Fl. The garden is just spectacular and I was excited to capture some beautiful images.

The cake had an amazing array of details that tied into the color scheme that Holly and Sheldon chose so carefully. The pinks, hints of navy, and blush just tied together beautifully with old world charm. Very classic and elegant.

 

Holly and Sheldon planned their Floridian Fall wedding here and the day was just perfect from start to finish. From the gorgeous cake by  Bearkery, Inc and the amazing floral arrangements from The Plant Shoppe, every single detail was well thought out and definitely Pintrest worthy. I was in wedding photographer heaven!

But what really shined though the details, was the love between Holly and Sheldon, as they stole a few moments here and there to connect and enjoy their day!   When I walked into the getting ready suite, where the girls were already giggling, I could tell that Holly and Sheldon were just adored by those who are privileged enough to know them. Holly and Sheldon are certainly surrounded by love. I loved the way that Holly’s laugh echoed through the church during their vows, and Sheldon had a twinkle in his eye as he watched his beautiful bride walk down the aisle. They are happy, they are kind, and they are so in love.

Their families made me feel like I was one of them, that’s just what amazing people they truly are.

Holly and Sheldon, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your wedding, allowing me to capture your special moments, but above all, to gain a friend.
