i’m so thrilled to finally be sharing beth & jon’s wedding! these two are the best, and i honestly had the greatest time spending their wedding day with them, their friends & family, and their awesome vendor team. this was my first swan & dolphin wedding, and i was pleasantly surprised by not only the venue but also by how well the vendor team was treated by the venue staff, which just made the day that much more awesome.
the beach club villas is my new favorite for dress & detail shots!
jon’s parents gifted the couple with traditional thai bridal garlands as a symbol of accepting the couple into the family. according to tradition, “giving flowers symbolizes the fragrance of marriage and the beauty of life […] and because flowers are delicate, they are also apt reminders of the fragility of life.” jon’s mother made the garlands by hand and they were absolutely beautiful.
while we finished up portraits on the boardwalk, beth & jon’s guests were enjoying pastries & signature cocktails on the osprey terrace at the swan.
danielle of detailed i do’s (aka my favorite planner & a former e. gilbert photography bride!) killed the details for this wedding – the osprey ballroom looked amazing!
any wedding that has mickey waffles is the best kind of wedding. 🙂
even better than mickey waffles – the boss man himself came to help cut the cake and brought minnie with him! i was dying over his dapper dan outfit.
after mickey & minnie headed out, it was time to keep partying.
