The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond-Tallahassee-Mr. & Mrs. Lee

Kelsey and Nick were married on a beautiful (and not humid) day at The Retreat at Bradleys Pond. From the moment I walked in, I could feel their excitement as their friends and family looked on. Their daughter Addy stole the show with her sweet and funny personality. I teared up when she turned the corner to come down the aisle as their flower girl and screamed “DADDY” and ran to Nick. There is nothing sweeter than this families love. During their first dance, Addy just had to join in and Nick sang the song to his girls. But, one of the most memorable moments was during the newlyweds special shoot right before sunset. When we were almost done, Kelsey gave Nick a very special book- just for him- his reaction was priceless. I shot his opening it and once he realized that his gift was a “little black book,” I smiles and walked away to let them have their moment. Their guests danced and laughed and danced! It was an honor photographing them!
