Bowing Oaks St. Augustine, FL Wedding: Cory + Heather
I met Cory + Heather while I was working at Ruth Chris’s Steak House and I always was excited to see them on their date nights! They are the best kinda people, the kind of people you just want to be around all the time. They are sooooo perfect together! So when they asked me to capture their wedding at Bowing Oaks, St. Augustine, FL it was an obvious YES!!! And their wedding was sooooo much FUN and kinda chill in the BEST possible way!
Bowing Oaks St. Augustine, FL Wedding: Bridal Suite
Bowing Oaks in St Augustine, FL has the BEST Bridal Suite for the ladies to get ready! When we arrived and the girls were getting ready in their suite. Everyone was sooo laid back and relaxed just taking everything in and enjoying the morning! We of course had to get fun rope shots before everyone got into their dresses. The first look with Heather’s Bridesmaids and Dad was such a special part of the day!
Bowing Oaks St. Augustine, FL Wedding: First Look with Dad
Heather’s first look with her Dad was the SWEETEST! It started raining a little so we went under the awning, which allowed the bridesmaids’ front room seats to peak out the window to watch this sweet moment.
Heather asked me to edit a photo for her a couple of weeks before the wedding. This picture was framed and a gift to her dad. It was in memory of her grandpa who has passed away but here in spirit. It was just a special moment!

Cory and his Groomsman were just hanging out shooting the shit and drinking a few beers. You know it only takes guys like 5 minutes to get ready. lol. They got into their suits, we headed outside. Man, they were looking sharp! We had some last-minute advice for the groom, got a little goofy, and prayed over Cory. It was perfect!

You know February in Florida and really any day in Florida is always unpredictable. It was drizzling on and off all-day, so they had the ceremony under this cool barn-type area.
