Zoey and Max’s Fieldhouse at Old School Square Wedding

Zoey and Max’s Fieldhouse at Old School Square Wedding

Over the years since moving to Florida, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people in the wedding industry. And, as you may remember from my post on this engagement session, Zoey and I met at an Addison event. I’ve been so fortunate as to not only have had the pleasure of working with her at other weddings and to continue to grow our friendship on a more personal level, but now have had the honor of photographing Zoey and Max’s Fieldhouse at Old School Square wedding!

Behind Every Good Couple is a Good Love Story

This couple met at a small Irish bar in Boca Raton, O’Brian’s, through a mutual friend.  It wasn’t a set-up. Max just decided to meet up with the group and the two ended up connecting and talking the entire night.  They didn’t even exchange numbers.  He friended Zoey on Facebook and they would chat sporadically, but since they both had upcoming vacations at the time, they didn’t end up going out on an actual date until a month after that night in O’Brian’s!

He Put a Ring on It

A proposal story is only good coming straight from the couple themselves. So here is Zoey on how Max ended up putting a ring on it and they came to planning their Fieldhouse at Old School Square wedding:
“Max and I decided to extend our trip after a friends wedding in Vermont. We drove out to Maine to celebrate my birthday.  We both had never been so figured it would be fun to road trip out there and eat a ton of lobster rolls.
That morning we went to this tiny hot diner cart that Max had heard about (since he always researches restaurants when we go out of town). I was super sleepy because I wasn’t sleeping well. Because of this, he thought I was in a bad mood when all I needed was a whole lot of coffee!
As we’re hanging out in this tiny diner, the Ray Charles song, ‘I got a woman’ came on the radio. Instantly, we both smiled.  One of the first times I met Max’s friends, we all were hanging out in a bar in Delray. That song came on the radio and he serenaded me.  I’ll never forget it, so it was just a funny little moment we shared six years later.
After the diner cart, we went to the picturesque lighthouse in Portland, the one that’s on all of the postcards!  We set up a little spot to sit on this field just off to the side of the lighthouse.  Max sat down next to me and started pulling cards out of his backpack. This was a bit confusing because my birthday was the day before.  He told me to open them all and I started reading these cards from both my family and his family.  All I kept thinking was ‘wow, these cards are all so freakin’ nice!’
And then the moment came. He told me that he wanted me to know how much my family and his family loved me, and that we were going to be together forever. At that moment, he pulled out the ring box!
The funny thing was that after he proposed, he told me that he almost abandoned his plan to ask me at the lighthouse. When that song came on the radio at the hot diner cart, he considered asking me right then and there.  He was so glad he didn’t because when we got to the light house and stepped out into the fresh air from the car, he said he could tell my mood instantly changed. It was worth waiting for that planned moment.  I said ‘we can chalk it up as a great sign!'”

The Fieldhouse at Old School Square Wedding

The Fieldhouse at Old School Square caught the couple’s attention. Since Max and Zoey are a very casual couple, they wanted “something a little more ‘us’ that had an understated charm.” The great thing about the Fieldhouse is that it can be dressed up, or it can be what it is: an old gym with wood floors with exposed ceilings, bringing the nostalgia of a high school dance.

Zoey, being a business owner and homeowner in Delray Beach, really wanted to keep it local. The venue is also located in downtown Delray, with so many great bars around. This provides a great opportunity to continue the party post-wedding!

First Look

According to Zoey, “the best part of the wedding day was the first look.  I was so nervous once we were actually enroute to the venue.  I think if Max and I didn’t have that little moment, it could have been an entirely different experience.  It was so amazing to be able to walk up to him, someone who I’ve been with for 6 years at the time, and have him look at me like he never had before. As I mentioned, we are super casual. It was an amazing few minutes to calm our nerves and remember why we were doing this in the first place.”

Personal Touches

Zoey and Max did a lot of things themselves for this wedding.  “There weren’t a lot of frills. We made our own centerpieces of terracotta planters with some hand-painted gold detailing to give them a little something extra. They were then filled with succulents.  I picked out really vibrant table clothes to be the main decor.”  Zoey and Max's Fieldhouse at Old School Square Wedding: The Fieldhouse at Old School Square in Delray Beach caught the couple's attention.

“We decided not to have a traditional dinner service. Instea, we hired three food trucks giving all of our guests access to eat from all of them.  The tables filled with food was certainly a sight!  It really was a food fest, considering we also had an insane bounty table of hors d’ouerves and passed items during cocktail hour.”

Not-Your-Average Cake and Dessert Table

“As I mentioned, I own a small bakery owned and operated by my family called Two Fat Cookies. Of course we had a crazy dessert display.
Max really wanted to make the wedding cake, but realized that it may be a better idea to make it together.  I baked the cake layers and then he came to the bakery with me. The cake layers were assembled by him, as well as some of the icing. We did the actual detailing together.  It really put the icing on the cake … see what I did there!”

Notes from the Bride

“The funny thing is, I never really wanted to have a big wedding.  I said for years that we would have a party in the backyard catered by Chipotle. The whole idea of being the center of attention was not for me.  I have to say I’m so glad we ended up going for it.  It is 100% possible to make your wedding as “you” as you want it to be.
Also, a great friend told me something that really stayed with me, ‘this is the one time that everyone you know and love is going to be there just for you, all together in one room.’  How much better can it get than that?
My advice for anyone planning a wedding is try not to stress yourself out too much!  It can be overwhelming at times, but in reality, if 80% of it goes go plan, it’s a success and you’ve married the person that you can’t imagine doing life without!”

Della Giustina’s Worth Avenue Family Session

The Della Giustina’s Worth Avenue Family Session

A Worth Avenue family session: the Della Giustinas are on a much-needed vacation. With Lindsay expecting their third child in October and Bill’s work schedule being hectic and having to travel often, they figured it was a perfect time for a family vacation.

Worth Avenue

This location is probably one of my favorites in the South Florida area. It offers the best of all worlds. You can take advantage of the beach: with the crystal blue water, small rock jetties, and soft sand. Not a beach person? Use its beautiful architecture as a backdrop! There’s the clock tower, unique walkways and alleys, and stunning staircases. And/or you can utilize the hidden gardens and greenery. Every time I go there, I always find a new spot to explore. What’s not to love about Worth Avenue?

Family Session Time

When on vacation, why not take advantage and get some updated pictures? That's what this family did ... they had fun with their Worth Avenue family session in West Palm Beach while on a much-needed family vacation.When on vacation, why not take advantage and get some updated pictures?

What was meant to be a beach session, turned out not to be so. It just so happens that the Della Giustina children are not a fan of the sand! 🤣

No sand? No problem! We just continued our journey to one of my favorite hidden spots:

When on vacation, why not take advantage and get some updated pictures?

Jennifer and Dre’s Tropical Fort Lauderdale Wedding

Jennifer and Dre’s Tropical Fort Lauderdale Wedding

High school sweethearts, Jennifer and Dre, have been waiting for this day for YEARS. Not many couples can say they made it through high school, college, long distance, and multiple moves still in love. It takes a strong couple, a strong love to overcome all the obstacles that life throws at you, and make it out stronger than ever. That’s exactly what Jenn and Dre did. There was nothing that could keep them apart. And now, they’re finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.

Bahia Mar

Planning your wedding in a separate state is no easy task (as they currently live in Connecticut to pursue their dream jobs). Lucky for Jenn and Dre, they are very familiar with Fort Lauderdale and Bahia Mar. Both originally from Fort Lauderdale, this location holds a special place in their hearts. “We fell in love with Bahia Mar after we saw the brick patio with the accompanying greenery and ocean views. There is also some sentimental value as well, as we had one of our very first dates on Fort Lauderdale beach, across A1A from the Bahia Mar.”

I love it when couples choose to get married at a venue that’s near and dear to them!

The Long-Awaited Wedding Day

The day is finally here! Walking into Jenn’s room, I knew it was going to be a very calm, relaxed day. It was peacefully quiet, with the girls getting their hair and makeup done … everyone just hanging out.

First Look

Dre and Jenn wanted to do the first look before heading down the aisle. I love first looks. Not only does it reduce stress and nervousness of walking down the aisle and seeing your significant other for the first time in front of MANY other people, but it also allows this moment to be intimate. It’s just the two of you. It’s your moment. Plus, it’s a photographer’s dream to have more time with the bride and groom. I love the option of having different lighting situations, before and after the ceremony.

In addition, it allows you to enjoy more time during cocktail hour and your reception!High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.High school sweethearts, Jenn and Dre, are finally tying the knot and having their dream tropical Fort Lauderdale wedding at Bahia Mar.

Saying ‘I Do’

Victoria’s Baby Bump Session

Victoria’s Baby Bump Session

This baby bump session was absolutely adorable! I first met the Feng family in 2017 when we did their family session at Red Reef Park. Now, 2 years later, they’re expecting their second child and couldn’t be more thrilled! Despite the restless and often uncomfortable nights, and their firstborn’s current only-child status, they are blissfully happy and counting down the days until they get to meet her.

Year of the Pig

Being Chinese, the Feng family celebrate the Chinese New Year and follow the Chinese zodiac. This year is the Year of the Pig. Because the newest addition to their family is going to be born in this year, it seemed only appropriate to include a pig in some of the pictures. Hence the cute, pink, bean bag-filled pig you see in the photos below.

Having this prop worked out perfectly, especially since big sister, Abby, is shy in front of the camera. Having the stuffed animal really opened her up, allowed her to have a bit of fun, and she loved showing the pig off to the camera!

Props: What to Bring, That is the Question

I love it when my families’ bring significant props, like a sonogram. Other great ideas to bring to your baby bump session aside from stuffed animals and sonograms: baby blocks that spell out your baby’s name, any toy or blanket that has been given as a gift and/or passed down from another family member, a cute pair of baby sneakers, and/or the cute onesie. Victoria's baby bump session at Spanish River Park in Boca Raton was absolutely adorable, featuring momma herself, daddy, and baby's older sister.

Big Sister

Abby is so excited to meet her little sister. She even plays doctor to see if she can hear her heart beat. I think this was my favorite part of the session … can this family BE any cuter (channeling in my inner Chandler from “Friends”)??Victoria's baby bump session at Spanish River Park in Boca Raton was absolutely adorable, featuring momma herself, daddy, and baby's older sister.

Alexandra and Joseph’s Bahia Mar Wedding

Because Who Doesn’t Love a Good Love Story …

Alexandra and Joseph’s Bahia Mar Wedding in Fort Lauderdale:

“On a seemingly ordinary day in July of 2017, Joe planned to take Alex out to dinner. She was naturally excited because she didn’t have to cook that night … and she was about to order the left side of the menu. But Joe, oddly enough, was acting excited about going out, too. He was even freaking out about what to wear. Anyone who knows Joe, knows that he never cares about what he wears. He wears the same outfit all the time!

So Alex became suspicious. She searched his pockets for a ring but found NOTHING. Joe, knowing his beloved so well, had a feeling she would do that. Because of this, he hid the ring in his waist band the entire time.

Once at the restaurant, Joe arranged the waitress to bring a bottle of champagne, two glasses, and a blue box. After hours of being cranky and nervous, he got down on one knee and asked Alex to spend the rest of her life with him. Or at least, she thinks that’s what he said … it was all a blur! They were both so happy and excited that they could hardly eat.

Post-dinner, Joe suggested they meet up with their parents. As they walked into the bar, the couple was greeted by the ENTIRE family and friends! Little did Alex know, Joe and Alex’s sister had arranged a surprise engagement party!”

All leading up to their Bahia Mar wedding on January 25th, 2019 …

Wedding Vision

I remember meeting Alex for the first time at Bahia Mar, almost exactly one year prior to the big day. She described herself as “type A” and knew exactly what her dream wedding looked like. Well, for a “type A” personality, she was super easy going with me (and the sweetest). As for her wedding vision, everything she described to me came to life on January 25th, down to the smallest details!

A Bahia Mar Wedding

Surrounded by ivory, champagne, and navy blue (not to mention their closest friends and family), Alexandra and Joseph’s Bahia Mar wedding was elegant, classy, timeless, and fun:
