Wedding Day Tips for Florida Brides

It’s become an essential part of my client experience to educate my brides on what works and what does not work for beach weddings in Florida. And now, I am sharing the knowledge!

Planning Your Wedding Day Photography Timeline

Here’s a sample of our wedding photography timeline we suggest to all our Ardensea brides and grooms!

Making Bride & Groom Portraits a Priority on Your Wedding Day

Running out of time is the biggest reason why couples skip over the bride and groom portraits, so it’s important to plan for at least 30-minutes to an hour for newlyweds to step away and capture wedding day pictures.

Best Detail Shots for Your Wedding Day

When it comes to planning out your wedding photography, consider the little details that have a surprisingly big impact. See which shots are absolute must-haves on your wedding day.

Tropical Waimea Plantation Wedding

Waimea Plantation Cottages

The Perfect Kauai Destination Wedding Venue

Nestled on the southwest side of Kauai, you’ll find Waimea Plantation Cottages. The multiple cottages and 43-acres of oceanfront property make it the perfect venue for a destination wedding or elopement.

Why We Recommend Waimea Plantation Cottages

There is truly the feeling of stepping into a tropical oasis when you walk the grounds at Waimea Plantation. If you’re looking for lodging for your guests or family members, but don’t want the busy feeling of a hotel or resort – this is the perfect spot for you!
