Amanda & Jonathan | Willow Pond Plantation, Monticello, FL Lifestyle Wedding Photography

The day finally came.  The skies were blue, the breeze was soft, and the emotions were beautiful.  Amanda and Jonathan celebrated their nuptials in front of family and friends in the beautifully quaint Willow Pond Plantation in Monticello, FL, and I had the distinct pleasure of being there to document it.  I couldn’t have been more proud to witness such an amazing event and to share it with some people who I’m now privileged to call friends.  Thank you to all the vendors and individuals involved who helped to make their day such a successful celebration; and particularly to my assistant and second shooter, Allison Lepine.

Now go and enjoy a little (Ok, maybe a LOT) Monday morning eye-candy from their spectacular day!

I love that Amanda and Jonathan decided to buck the traditional norms of the day and do a “First Look”, giving them the opportunity to see each other prior to the ceremony and me an opportunity to capture some spectacular portraits.  This is a great little series of shots right before Amanda was “revealed” to Jonathan.
