What was your favorite part of the wedding day?

“Seeing Tracy and Gary was absolutely the best thing about this day!!! I met them last year at a bridal show and we connected right away. They are two of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met. Gary finds the humor in everything and shares it freely which is such an awesome quality! It’s obvious to everyone around them that they are crazy about each other and they show it in everything they do. They are so considerate of one another.”  

What was the couple's session like?

“When I first met these two, Gary told me that the photography for their wedding was incredibly important to him. He adores photography and wanted each moment of their day to be captured with creativity and fun! Both are so easy to do with these wonderful people! Can you tell that I adore them? We had a blast strolling around Sanders Beach finding some great spots for their portraits. The joy on Gary and Tracy’s faces when they saw just a quick peek of the images made me so happy!”

Where there special details with symbolic importance?

“Turtles hold special significance for Tracy and Gary. There were adorable little turtle details scattered throughout the wedding. Right before Tracy started getting ready she gave Kendall and I the sweetest gift! She wanted everyone to wear a turtle of some kind that day so she gave us beautiful little bracelets with silver turtles on them!”

What emotions were apparent on the wedding day?

“Happy tears and absolute joy were everywhere! It was so easy to see how much Tracy and Gary are adored by their family and friends.”

Were there any children involved in the ceremony or reception that were memorable?

“All four of Tracy’s kids were in the wedding party and they are each such amazing people! Her youngest, Tyler, played a particularly memorable part in the day. Gary was prepped and ready for a first look with his beautiful bride, Tracy. Or so he thought. Gary had been ready to cry happy tears and kept telling me he could barely hold it together. However, with the whole bridal party watching (and Tracy observing in secret), it was actually Tyler who walked out in a dress and and tapped Gary on the shoulder! It was hilarious and the look on Gary’s face was priceless!!! It was yet another example of how awesome these people are and how fun they make everything!”
