Kristen and Michael’s Lightner Museum Wedding

Kristen and Michael were married in an afternoon ceremony at the historic Lightner Museum in St. Augustine.

Inside the Lightner is what was once the world’s largest indoor swimming pool, which served as the ceremony and reception location — and a great place to dance the night away. Before it was over, I was able to sneak the couple out to the terrace for a shot under the full moon.

Andrea and Andres were married in a dusk ceremony on the bridge at the historic Lightner Museum in St. Augustine. The beautiful Christmas lights made the setting so magical.

Their wedding was a mix of cultures, with Andrea’s uncle performing the ceremony that incorporated Latin American and Jewish traditions. At the reception, Andres surprised Andrea and their guests with a Uruguayan drum performance that he had secretly practiced for months.
