Stephanie + Kyle | Gainesville Wedding Photographer

Oct 10, 2018

Oh my goodness how I loved this day. While it was probably the hottest day of the year, Stephanie and Kyle were still just a dream together. 

By far, my biggest takeaway was how much these two celebrated where it all started and how much they wanted to share that with everyone they loved. Since Gainesville is very near and dear to their hearts (check out their Gainesville engagement session on UF campus) they chose to have their wedding at Sweetwater Branch Inn. This charming bed and breakfast  was the perfect location, a quick 10 minute walk to all of their favorite spots downtown. They even had little Rifle Gator pins for their bridal party and family to wear during the wedding to commemorate this special town. 

Stephanie met Kyle in the garden for their first look and it was just really sweet. I loved watching her walk through the garden, making the anticipation of them meeting even stronger. Kyle has such a tender spirit to him and it was such a sweet moment seeing him delicately caress her and melt for her as Stephanie giggled her way through the first look. I really just adore these two, so having a front row to their first look was special. 

With all of the events happening in one site, guests were able to wander around the property during the celebration. After the ceremony on one side of the garden, guests moved to cocktails around the lawn and under the patio space. Even their pup joined in! (Definitely a highlight) Then for dinner and dancing guests walked over to the banquet room. It was especially romantic when the sun went down because the banquet hall is surrounded by glass that overlooks the lush garden and market lights.
