I’m a few weeks behind on blogging weddings and I’m so happy to finally get to share this STUNNING Florida wedding with you all!
A few weeks ago, I flew down to Jacksonville, FL to photograph Patricia and Justin’s glorious wedding. Patricia went to Franciscan University with me, and it was fun reconnecting with her and her bridesmaids (all fellow FUS friends). Patricia and Justin met in Jacksonville after college and were quickly drawn to each other over their mutual interests, faith, and outlook on life. Justin is one of the kindest and most genuine of men and I could not be happier that Patricia found such a wonderful man to get to spend the rest of her life with. Patricia herself is so sweet and gentle and has one of the most beautiful smiles (as you will very quickly notice) and it is apparent that God created them for each other.
The day started off at their venue, Marywood Retreat Center on St. John’s River. It was a perfect day, not too hot and humid, but sunny and warm, with just a slight breeze. Once Patricia was all ready, we headed north into the city to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Jacksonville which is one of the most stunning churches. I had such a hard time narrowing down images from their Wedding Mass because they were all just so beautiful! The stained glass in particular is exquisite.
After their Mass, we took some portraits around the church and then finished up the rest of the portraits back at Marywood Retreat Center as the sun was beginning to set over the river, and let me tell you, it was a photography dream! As the sun finished setting, we headed inside and it was time to party!
Patricia and Justin, it was SUCH an honor to be your wedding photographer and not only photograph but truly rejoice with you on your wedding day.
A huge thank you to all the other vendors who came together to make this day possible!
