I met Haylea and Max during an amazing shoot they modeled for in Cumberland Island, Georgia (Hint: You can see all three parts of this blog series here, here, and here!). They were an absolute dream to work with because they were incredibly kind, up for anything, and totally trusted my vision. So when the opportunity came up that I could photograph their actual wedding I was THRILLED because I knew it would be a day full of love, grace, and lots of faith.
Max and Haylea celebrated their wedding in St. Augustine, Florida. This town has all the bits of old charm and Florida beauty, it was perfect for Max and Haylea’s wedding day. Haylea got ready with her family at the Casa Monica Resort and Max got ready down the road to ensure they didn’t see each other before their ceremony. Instead this sweet couple arranged a First Touch where they could have a moment to pray together and exchange sweet words before they said their vows without seeing each other.
When Max saw Haylea for the first time while she walked down the aisle, his face was full of tears and so much happiness. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a groom more excited to marry his bride. After a ceremony filled with incredible promises and a room full of support, this couple celebrated the rest of the night dancing away with friends and family.
Haylea and Max, I wish you both the greatest happiness and I am so thankful to have been your wedding photographer.
Thank you to all the incredible vendors that made Haylea and Max’s day possible!
