It feels like years have passed by since I met Gabi and Richard at Starbucks. I could tell that Richard was into tech when he popped up with a Windows Surface Pro Laptop. I felt like we immediately connected over tech. The focus was on their wedding, though. They talked to me about how Richard proposed in Iceland and then had an amazing excursion across that beautiful land. They were showing me pictures of everything they saw there. It was awesome. Somewhere in the middle of it, we started talking about their floral fairytale wedding at Club Lake Plantation.
Their First Look at Club Lake Plantation
The first person we went to go see was Gabi. She was well put together, but you could tell that she was a little nervous. After talking to her for a bit, I went and headed to see Richard. He seemed so relaxed and calm. It was almost like the day wasn’t really that big of a deal. I went back to see Gabi. Our associate photographer, Kara, was with her. She seemed like she was ready for the first look.
Once the first look happened, it seemed like everyone was calmer. Richard said he was fine and only wanted to make sure that Gabi was alright. They both looked so happy seeing each other for the first time. It was great because we didn’t have a Together Session. I’m glad that their chemistry was overpowering any nerves that they had.
A Floral Fairytale Inspired Wedding Reception
During the reception, there were so many people that were dancing and having a good time. Katie, from Our DJ Rocks, threw down and made some awesome mixes. She was playing music that was out of the ordinary for wedding receptions, and I loved every second of it. In other words, she threw down, and the wedding guests loved it. As the night continued, we kept on getting candid shots throughout the entire evening.
Their grand exit was perfect for them, and everyone came out and there were plenty of sparklers to go around. Low and behold, everything was on point. They left in a car and headed straight to the honeymoon. Congrats to these two! We’re humbled to have been a part of it all. Check out some of their wedding photos.
