We photographed Leia and Kyle’s beautiful wedding in Jacksonville Beach, Florida and we are thrilled to share some of their wedding photos and more about their story! Kyle and Leia met at Florida State University in an elevator, while they were both students studying hospitality management. They dated through college and after, joined by a love for good food, good drinks, and an appreciation for the outdoors and being on the water. They did a lot of hiking, fishing, and camping while dating, and also adopted their beloved cat Neptune. Their engagement was a major surprise for Leia, planned meticulously by her best friend and Kyle for a month. Kyle drove up to the Georgia mountains and surprised Leia while she was on a hiking trip with previously mentioned best friend, and proposed on a mountain top in the rain and fog.
Leia says she remembers the calm feeling the second she grabbed Kyle's hand at their wedding ceremony, and just felt peaceful and relaxed. The rest of the day was nothing short of an absolute dream come true for them. The reception took place at Casa Marina where they enjoyed the evening with their guests, dancing the night away. Leia and Kyle stayed the night at Casa Marina and said they even woke up the following morning to a view through their window of dolphins jumping through the waves at sunrise! We hope you enjoy these photos of their wonderful wedding day and please check out the other wedding vendors that made this wedding a dream! Congratulations Leia and Kyle!
