Sumner & Julie's Marie Selby Gardens wedding is one of those days that just stays with me. In the best way, of course. These two wanted their day to be focused on authentic moments, keeping things relaxed and unorchestrated. And that's exactly how the day unfolded.

The natural Floridian beauty of Marie Selby Gardens provided a perfect backdrop for the entire day, which allowed Sumner & Julie to keep focused on what really matters - their love and the ones there to celebrate with them.

S & J kept it chill from start to finish, inviting their friends to join them as they got ready and for some special photos together, without all the pressure or extras that come with a traditional wedding party. Choosing to invite their families together prior to the ceremony for family photos allowed them to have real, meaningful moments together because we weren't crunched for time or feeling rushed.

I hope you'll enjoy viewing Sumner & Julie's wedding day as much as I enjoyed photographing it.
