Amber and Dylan had a stunning wedding at the Ever After Farms – Blueberry Farm in Mims, FL.
Believe it or not, it actually poured rain on their wedding day. Some say that brings luck to the couple but boy, does it also bring some anxiety! Obviously, having a great team makes a HUGE difference! Our wedding planner that day was the amazing Francesca at The Eventful Gals and we could not be happier!
Ever After Farms have a collection of amazing venues that offer such a variety of backdrops both inside and outside. However, they still keep the same vibe of a romantic wedding at the farm. You can never go wrong with an Ever After farm wedding!
It all started with a nice cloudy day. You may not know but we Florida wedding photographers are grateful for the nicely evened-out light that the clouds create. It gives everyone a break from the strong FL sun and makes taking pictures in any direction very easy!
Ever After Farms weddings are beautiful year-round. Amber got ready at her own house with her girls and the moms, while Dylan hang out with his crew at the venue. We had amazing floral arrangements by In Bloom Florist which added some amazing pops of color to the scene.
Everyone walked down the aisle as planned but as soon as our bride Amber got to the barn doors, the sprinkles started. I mouthed to my second photographer to grab the umbrellas and our wedding planner and her team were on the same mission already. As soon as Amber got the Dylan, down came the rain! The guests were able to take cover under the side patio and still watch the ceremony. The bridal party and parents stay put, along with us and the video team. You would never know how much it rained based on the pictures because Amber and Dylan just embraced the moment and focused on getting married to the love of their lives!
As a wedding photographer in Jacksonville, FL, I need to be prepared for crazy weather situations like this. Here is what you can do to make the best out of a rainy wedding day:
They finished their day with some amazing dancing. The bride and groom had a choreographed first dance and then melted watching each other dance with their parents. Our favorite DJ Kevin Santos from Party Solution Entertainment kept the dance floor lit the entire night. Even grandma and the photographer (yes, me!) were on the dance floor. Amber and Dylan left the party surrounded by sparklers and love.
Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Notvest!
