Kyle + Justin {Selby Gardens Wedding Photography}

” I forgot to tell you!….Were moving to Florida in a year and you’re going to be my friend”. This was one of the first things from Kyle’s mouth when I saw her on her wedding day.Those words will resonate with me forever, as well as bring a huge smile to my face. And while Kyle and Justin haven’t quite made the move down to Florida yet I know that when they do arrive we will celebrate with a bottle of wine and reminisce over some amazing memories from their wedding day.
This one is for sure going down in the books folks. I loved every little thing about this wedding and every little thing about this couple. Kyle and Justin held their outdoor garden wedding at Selby Gardens in Sarasota. The weather was perfect! The details were divine. And I don’t think you could ask for a cuter ring bearer….The girls are gonna be in trouble when he grows up 🙂 I literally was waiting all year for this wedding. After hearing about all the details, colors, style and set up I knew it was going to be something special. Well, it far exceeded any of my wildest expectations. And I think everything previously mentioned coupled with two amazing families and lots of great friends created for one amazing event. Special thank you to all the vendors who made this day awesome. And an even bigger thank you to Style Me Pretty Florida for featuring this wedding. Click here to check out the post.
Here are some of my favorites from Kyle and Justin’s day.
P.S. Kyle I can’t wait for you to move down to Florida. I have a bottle of wine and a big hug waiting for you 🙂
