I love Hemingway House weddings. The Spanish colonial style property built in 1851 is one of our favorite venues on the planet! I could seriously shoot a wedding here every weekend… Beautifully landscaped gardens, cute kitties, historical architecture, big trees and bistro lights… Just perfection!!! A mix of historic and tropical is what Julianne and Michael dreamed for their wedding and Hemingway House has everything they wanted.
The day started at the bridal suite in Casa Marina with Julianne getting ready surrounded by her friends, and from there we moved to Hemingway House for the first look and family portraits. But the rain had just started to pick up and we had heard the severe weather warnings on the radio all morning.
I want you to recognize that we took these portraits in less than 20 minutes and it was RAINING in most of these images! I know, I know… I’m talking about one of those taboo subjects you’re not supposed to talk about – rain on the wedding day 🙀 NOOOOO. But it happens, sometimes Mother Nature is not on the same page with the happy couple.
So how did we capture so many gorgeous portraits in the RAIN? I’ll tell you how…. We were working with one awesome couple that despite the weather didn’t stop smiling and having a good time. They were literally getting drenched and they still had a smile on their face.
Julianne and Michael despite the wind and the rain your wedding day was perfect! Thank you for being so loving and welcoming. Your contagious joy is what we love the most about you both! Thank you for sharing your day with me and Vitalii! Please enjoy these photos from your wedding day. We love the reveal and can’t wait for you to see the rest!
