Brittany & Josh's Wedding At The Lightner Museum

Just when we thought we were closing the door on our wedding portfolio for 2018, one last ceremony slipped through the crack!  We were thrilled when we received a final inquiry to accommodate an intimate, low-key ceremony between Brittany and Josh at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, Florida.  The draw of the dreamy historic architecture is something we can never resist, so we happily accepted our last couple of 2018 into our books.

Concerned with only the “meat and potatoes” of the day, Brittany and Josh’s main priorities were to document some dramatic First Look portraits, family photos, and their ceremony.  Since first looks and market-lit evening ceremonies are on our list of favorite things, we were thrilled to focus all of our energy on only the most sacred parts of their day.

We staged their first look on the grounds surrounding the Castillo de San Marcos fortress, and a dramatic overcast sky was the perfect finishing touch to an already epic setting.  Brittany and Josh shared their first look while happy bystanders oversaw and clapped from a respectful distance.

After the couple enjoyed a private moment soaking in their wedding day attire, we snapped a few beautiful portraits before whisking them off to the Lightner Museum.  Their small evening ceremony took place on the bridge in the courtyard of the building, surrounded by only the dearest of their loved ones and friends, basking in the orange glow of market lights.  A wardrobe request of converse sneakers also united the bride and groom with their intimate guest list, which added the perfect touch of casual spunk to their nuptials!

We lingered just long enough to snag a few more perfectly dramatic Just Married Portraits in the courtyard, and just like that our newlyweds escaped off to their reception venue to continue celebrating with their guests.  Although the day was brief, it was still all of the best, most emotional, and joyous parts of the day packed into the perfect window of time.  

We loved hanging out and celebrating with Brittany and Josh, and we thank them and their family for including us in their day!
