Garett and Elisabeth are one of the most genuine couples I’ve ever worked with. You can just feel it when you’re around them! You can see it when you watch them interact – with each other and with others. After being together for almost 8 years (high school sweethearts🥰) I think it’s safe to say they are truly soulmates and best friends. Their love for each other is undeniable and you’ll see that in their laughs and smiles from the beginning of the day to the very end.
Rain was in the forecast to start right after the ceremony and pour for the rest of the night. Ryan and I got to the hotel and it was bright, sunny, a little hot but still we were hoping the rain would stay away. It did! Their Madeira Beach wedding had sunshine, a couple cracks of lightning during cocktail hour and a BREATHTAKING sunset to end the night. Just wait until you see it.
It was an honor to be the ones to capture E + G’s day!!! Ryan and I loved getting to meet their families, celebrate with them and document their AUTHENTIC love!!! Enjoy my favorites from their beautiful Madeira Beach wedding!

Guess who Garett made his best man… His dad🥺
The ceremony was held at Blessed Sacrament – the bride’s home church. SO SPECIAL!
I’ve known Garett since we were in the same gym class in middle school and I have never seen him smile quite like this before😭 He is a fairly quiet and reserved guy. It made me smile to watch him grin from ear to ear while looking at his bride!!
Can you tell Elisabeth is a fan of Lily Pulitzer?😉
They got a new puppy just a few weeks ago!! Cooper joined us for the engagement shoot last year and now Jax got to join us for their wedding!
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Veil! This is one of Elisabeth’s bridesmaids’ veil that she wore on her wedding day and E wore it on her special day! I’m not-so-secretly hoping this continues and becomes a tradition in their friend group😁
Did I not tell you this sunset was BREATHTAKING?!
One of Elisabeth’s bridesmaids and her husband (who just recently got married themselves) were watching the sunset and I was able to snag this quick photo of them🥺
Is that not one of the coolest and most unique exit you’ve ever seen from a wedding?? Garett has loved fishing for years so this was a perfect way to end the night.
We love the both of you and wish you every happiness in your lives together, Elisabeth and Garett! Thank you so much for letting us capture your wedding day 🥰
