It was one of those magical days in Florida, where the temperature is a perfect 70 degrees. The fresh, cool breeze and rich colored flowers set the tone for the perfect fall wedding at the beautiful White Barn in Brooksville. Josh tied his shoes and buttoned his coat, while Lory slipped into her beautiful gown and pulled on her cowgirl boots. They met each other, on opposite sides of a dark colored cottage, for a hidden first look. They held hands around the corner. Lory gushed with excitement in the moment. But the anticipation was too much for Josh… and he quickly turned the corner to steal a look at his beautiful bride. I’m not sure who was more shocked… me or the bride! haha But it will definitely go down in history as one of the most special first looks I’ve ever photographed. It was like watching two grade-school kids seeing each other for the first time. So much laughter and joy. A moment I’m sure they will never forget.
Minutes later they met again, this time on a brick laid alter in front of two large wooden doors draped in fresh flowers and greenery. Josh and Lory held hands again, said their I do’s and share their first kiss as husband and wife! They walked back down the alter, officially, Mr. + Mrs. Leibacher!!! Shortly after, we spent the last bits of daylight soaking up the golden sun… capturing lots of love, smiles and snuggly embrace! Then it was time to head back to the white barn, where twinkling lights and sound of friends’ and family’s laughter filled the barn with the most beautiful glow. They talked joyfully with loved ones, ate yummy food and danced into the black of night!
Josh and Lory, thanks so much for trusting me with all of your beautiful memories! Your wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect and I had so much fun capturing it all! I wish you many, many years of love and happiness ❤️
