Wedding Under Giant Oak Tree in Florida

February 25, 2022


Audrey and Kris’ Fort Myers, Florida wedding at the Verandah Golf Club was nothing short of magical. I fell so lucky to have photographed their love. They got married on Saturday, January 22nd with their closest family and friends!

That weather was cold and the day was cloudy, which is a bit different for a Florida wedding. However, that did not stop this beautiful bride and groom from enjoying their day to the fullest. From the navy, baby blue, and sage details to the bride’s DIY centerpieces, this wedding was so personalized and memorable.

The Details

As a wedding photographer I love capturing the small details that you so carefully planned. Quick tip is to have a bag ready for your wedding photographer with all of the little details you want captured. This will ensure that nothing is missed

First Touch

Kris and Audrey opted for a first touch. This made their wedding extra special because they exchanged a few words and gifts before the ceremony. Even some sweet tears.

The Ceremony

There is something truly magical about giant oak trees. As a florida wedding photographer, I love that the Verandah Club in Ft.Myers has the option for couples to get married under this massive gorgeous tree.

Backstory Time! Audrey, how did you and Kris meet and when did he propose?

“We meet in college in 2018 and we were friends for a while before we started dating, and life has been crazy. We got engaged in February 2021. He surprised me at a mini waterfall and it was a perfect night!”
