So I know I am constantly bragging on our couples and how amazing they are, because we truly do get to work with the BEST couples in the world!! But I honestly don’t have words to describe how wonderful Caylin and Ethan are. This couple just radiates happiness and positivity. Literally anything that we asked Caylin and Ethan to do, they were so down for. Even when their videographer asked if they’d be willing to run through the cow field at Tuscan Rose Vineyards for some awesome shots, they didn’t question it once! Sure, they may have been dodging some “natural fertilizer” as they were running through the field, but they were just going with the flow and having so much fun! Weddings like this make us remember why we fell in love with photographing weddings in the first place. So here’s a little glimpse at their day. We hope you are able to feel the joy in every single image.
First, let me tell you about the venue. Tuscan Rose Vineyards is one of our absolute favorite wedding venues near Jacksonville, Florida. As soon as you arrive at Tuscan Rose, you’ll notice the beautiful architecture that makes you feel like you just arrived in a Tuscan village. The European feel of this venue is so unique to this area, and we’re so in love with it! As if that wasn’t enough, Tuscan Rose also has a plethora of moss-covered oak trees that not only provide the perfect shady spots for photography, but add to the romantic feel of the space. This venue truly sets the tone for a romantic and elegant celebration.
Caylin’s details were SO classic and true to her style. We loved the bold, black envelopes and the simple black and white script. Good invitations set the tone for the whole day, and this invitation suite did exactly that.
Tuscan Rose Vineyards also has a gorgeous, spacious bridal suite for you and your whole gang! Perfect for moments like this, where Caylin’s bridesmaids gifted her with a special photo album of their favorite memories, accompanied by letters from each of them. As you can see, Caylin was so touched by this thoughtful gesture, and I may have even gotten a little teary-eyed myself…. (Sorry not sorry!)
Fun fact! Mrs Bobbi, the owner of Tuscan Rose, actually has a package that includes all the florals for your big day as well! With her background in interior design, she has the perfect eye for making breathtaking floral pieces that will take your wedding to the next level!
Remember those oak trees I was telling you about? Here’s how they set the tone for the perfect wedding day portraits! The sun just sets perfectly behind them, and it just makes my wedding photographer heart so happy.
And here’s that cow field I was talking about, haha! You’d never think a cow pasture would be perfect for wedding day photos, but sometimes it’s the most random spots that turn out to be our favorite!
Caylin had a mix of sage green, light pink, and grey tones for their wedding colors, and I loved how it all came together. We are huge fans of sticking to an overall family of colors rather than only choosing one or two colors for the whole day.
And that concluded one of the most beautiful and fun wedding days we’ve had the pleasure of capturing. I will forever brag about this couple and how much fun they were on their wedding day, because it makes all the difference! Choosing to fully enjoy your day and leave the stress up to everyone else can do wonders for your wedding and your photography! Thank you Caylin and Ethan for choosing us to capture the moments, and for being the sweetest people ever!
