Emily & Jared's Marco Island Wedding

Emily & Jared are such a super sweet couple! We were honored to photograph their destination wedding on the beach of Marco Island, Florida. We hadn't been to Marco Island before and can see why they chose it for their wedding. The Marriott Resort on Marco was beautiful and had many picture perfect spots.

We loved Emily and Jared's bright tropical colors, which photographed beautifully against the snow white sand and tropical plants. Everything went according to plan, except for the brief monsoon that came through right before the wedding ceremony was to begin. I don't know how many times we looked at the radar that day, but the executive decision was made to delay the ceremony by 30 minutes.

Cocktail hour was bumped up before the ceremony so guests were able to enjoy appetizers and cocktails as we waited out the storm. The delay worked out perfectly because the storm past and they still got to have their dream wedding on the beach! Good things happen to those who wait...Emily and Jared's long history together proves that too!

Friends and family came from near and far to join the celebration. Jared and Emily were smart too by planning an after party at the hotel so that guests could dance the night away. Considering the great company and beautiful atmosphere, Emily and Jared will have a night they will remember and cherish forever.
