Best of 2019 | Virginia + Florida Wedding Bridal Details

Last week, you saw some of my favorite engagement portraits from 2019. Today, I’m continuing the “Best of 2019” by covering my favorite Virginia + Florida wedding bridal details! šŸ™‚ It’s so fun looking back through last year’s photos as I gear up for the 2020 wedding season. It’s coming quickly ā€” Hello, next month!!

As I was looking through the photos below, I love that no two weddings are exactly the same. Each bride has their own style ā€” Some love a lot of bling while some prefer understated. Some love COLOR while some want neutral tones.

One thing I noticed this past year was the pretty ring boxes!!! There are so many different styles out there too! I saw some fabulous Mrs. Boxes used as well as simple velvet boxes in all different shapes. I also carry a couple of velvet boxes with me in my styling kit in case my couple wants a little added touch in their photos to show off the bling. šŸ™‚ Along with the velvet boxes, I also have hangers (wooden and brass), and emergency supplies! I’m inspired to share a blog post of the things I pack in my styling kit with you all soon!! šŸ™‚

Enjoy checking out some of my favorite Virginia + Florida Wedding Bridal Details!

It’s fun as the photographer walking into the wedding day and checking out/admiring the details the bride so beautifully laid out! It kicks my creative juices into high gear before getting my couple in front of the camera. šŸ™‚ Sometimes when I notice the timeline is in a bit of a crunch, I’ll arrive a little earlier than the contracted time to ensure I have enough time to photograph these items. I wrote a blog post about the importance of WHY I take time to photograph these details when I shared my favorite 2017 photos. Gosh… It’s still weird thinking it’s 2020. Haha! I’m SO grateful to do this “job” for another year!!! šŸ™‚

I cannot wait to photograph more pretty details this year!!
