Marissa and Richard are Married!! - River House St. Augustine FL Wedding Photographer

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Wow, this past two weeks had been insanely busy, and I thought I would have more down time in the month of January.  Instead it's turning out to be a busy month, but I'm thankful for it.  I'm also thankful for this lovely and beautiful wedding couple, Marissa and Richard.  They are absolutely the kind of bride and groom that any wedding vendor would love to work with because they are pretty laid back no matter what kind of curve balls are thrown their way!  I knew from the start that Marissa is going to be an awesome bride when she first emailed me last summer with this phrase written on the subject line, "Wedding Inquiry for VERY happy people!!" :) 

On top of that, her wedding fell on the same date as my birthday, so I already knew then that their wedding day was going to be a great day no matter what :) Marissa and Richard also surprised me with birthday cupcakes during their reception!  Now how thoughtful is that?!
  Another cool thing about this wedding is that a lot of the vendors were ladies! Marissa and Richard had their pastor from their church, Pastor Lisa, marry them.  Their coordinator was Sarah from The Big Event, their DJ was a woman, and of course, me as their photographer :)

River House is one of my favorite wedding venues in St. Augustine, and I'm pretty happy that I got the chance to go back there and photograph Marissa and Richard's beautiful winter wedding :)  Be sure to click on the slideshow for more pictures!

Enjoy!

THEIR LOVE STORY:
How did you guys meet? 

Playing on a co-ed adult soccer league.

Describe the proposal:

Richard had attempted to propose to Marissa on several occasions, however, Marissa unknowingly fouled up these attempts by changing plans last minute and not feeling like a walk on the beach.
