A few years ago, I did a family session in Avalon and immediately fell in love with the Diamond girls, Katie and Meg. Fast forward a few summers later (and one engagement!), I headed to the Windrift in Avalon to capture Meg's wedding day. Fittingly enough, it was extremely windy - which made for dramatic beach shots and I am grateful to Meg and Jon for allowing me to drag them onto the beach, where they had to block the whipping sand from their eyes (seriously, I thank you guys a million times!). Thankfully the Windrift has a tented space on their roof, where we captured some gorgeous portraits prior to the ceremony. Meg is very laid back, and opted for a neutral palate for bridal party and florals that already complimented the venue's dining room. She carried a cheery bouquet of pink and coral roses that popped with her bright lip color and looked drop.dead.gorgeous. Right before walking down the aisle, Meg and Katie sprayed their bouquets with perfume from their beloved, late Grandmother. With no first look, Jon waited for Meg under the intimate white tent, surrounded by a crowd of family and friends. What I love most about Meg is her incredible smile and enthusiasm, and Jon is one of the most kind grooms I've worked with. I sincerely cherished our time together on their wedding day. Congrats to this incredible couple, who I am happy to call friends of mine!
