Julia and Joe live in Cincinnati but since they met in Neptune Beach, Florida will always play a special role in their hearts and so a wedding down by the water and warm sun sounded perfect.

That decision was so lucky for me because I’d actually known Julia and her brother since I was in grade school. She’s one of those beautiful people inside and out that even when you don’t see each other for years, when you do see each other it’s like it was just yesterday. Joe, I met a bit ago at one of Julia’s sisters’ wedding and so when the two reached out to me about photographing their special day, I was so excited to be able to see these two super wonderful people again.

Their intimate Florida wedding was filled with meaningful details. The ceremony took place at her parents’ home on Kingsley Lake, right on the dock by the water. Julia’s brother officiated the ceremony that was surrounded by loving family members.

From there we headed to Neptune Beach to join close friends from near and far for dinner, but not before stopping by the actual spot of the first time they met near a lamp post on 1st Street. If you’ve never experienced 1st Street in Neptune Beach, it’s a very calming, chill place, where everyone is riding their cruiser bicycle in a good mood, listening to fun music, and just taking in the sun–perfect for wedding day photos. That, and then of course being right on the beach as the sun went down, made for a most excellent end to a most excellent day!

Congrats again you two!
