Here's a glimpse of Sade and Bernard's garden wedding at the Palmetto Club at FishHawk Ranch. Imagine a beautiful bride doing the Gator chop with one of her bridesmaids, the groom hamming it up with his guys. Picture a dear uncle officiating the wedding ceremony with reverence and a hint of mischievous humor. Imagine moments peppered with stolen glances and nervous laughter, sunshine filtering through the clouds and the bride and groom embraced by their parents after saying, “I do.”
The reception began just after sunset in a ballroom decorated with roses and candlelight. Little moments unfolded that we hope these two will remember fondly like: Bernard and his mom dancing to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole’s sweet rendition of Somewhere over the Rainbow, the best man’s teasing toast, group photos with loved ones, an epic dance-off between guests and dancing the night away to Calypso classics music with handkerchiefs in hand.
A big thank you goes out to the creative team for making the day run smoothly including, Brenna of An Elegant Affair, Brenda from Brenda Michel Beauty and Righteous Image.
Sade and Bernard, thank you for trusting me and my team to capture the moments that created your wedding day story. We wish you a marriage full of happiness, joy and of course, blue skies!

We may have gushed over how stunning Sade looked on her wedding day. Okay...we did!
The guys hamming it up for the camera.
The joy on a bride's face. The love and pride in a dad's embrace. These are the little moments that make weddings so special.
