When we think of a perfect wedding day, we think of Makenzie and Shawn’s Marriott Marco Island wedding last Sunday. From beginning to end, we could not have asked for more and we really had such a hard time picking favorites (which was the same problem we encountered during their amazing engagement session) This may just go down as one of our favorite weddings ever! But it wasn’t only the gorgeous details and love put into every aspect of this wedding, but it was this sweet couple’s connection and the pure joy felt by all as they pledged their lives to each other and became husband and wife. Their family and friends were equally as excited for them to tie the knot and the love in the room was so tangible. Aside from being one of the most beautiful couples we’ve ever photographed, Makenzie and Shawn are equally beautiful people on the inside and we LOVED being a part of their big day!
Makenzie and Shawn could not have asked for better weather, and the sunset that day over Marco Island was absolutely unreal. You’ll see what we mean when you scroll down to the portraits we did after their ceremony… seriously DREAMY! The touches of blush, seafoam green, and natural tones made our hearts swoon and matched so perfectly with their ceremony on the beach. Their bridal party was not only sweet but so much fun to be around and had the most epic reception entrances! We were left completely speechless at the beauty of this wedding and are pretty much obsessed with the entire thing!
We closed out our double header wedding weekend with these two and drove back from Marco Island the next morning on a cloud knowing all the prettiness we would get to share with you all! Although picking favorites was tough, we managed to narrow down, and we’re excited to share a few with you all today!
The image on the right was taken on top of Makenzie’s great grandmother’s handkerchief. Heirloom pieces are our favorite, especially when they are as beautiful as this handkerchief. The seafoam glass was the perfect backdrop for these stunning rings! LOVE these ladies! They were amazing and gorgeous :) And these shortie pajama sets from Plum Pretty Sugar were perfect! Shawn was such a handsome groom! This was the sweetest moment between Makenzie and her flower girl! We love father-daughter first looks just as much as bride and groom first looks! So sweet! This bouquet from Bella Florals by Theresa is everything! These two are perfect together!!! These dresses together are everything! We laughed so hard with these groomsmen! They were a trip! LOVE this bridal party! Let’s just take a minute and talk about Shawn’s best man comforting him as Makenzie walked down the aisle!Everything about this ceremony was perfect :) Officially Mr. and Mrs. Cheney!
And these next images are probably some of our favorite ever! Makenzie, you are SO GORGEOUS!!! This light! Oh my goodness!! Probably one of my all-time favorite images! These reception details were so classy and elegant! And the best bridal party entrance goes to… This entire crew! This reception was just awesome!
Makenzie and Shawn, we cannot even bein to express how much we not only loved your wedding but you both! You two are such beautiful people both inside and out and we LOVED being a part of your big day! We wish you both the best as you embark on this journey called marriage!
