My coastal wedding dreams came true this past weekend!! And let me tell y’all, I haven’t stopped freaking out over their day since. Having not lived in the same city as one another since 2013, Grant & Kat finally became husband and wife at their St. Augustine wedding! Their entire wedding weekend could not have been more perfect, and it was such a gift to be a part of it.
I am so humbled by the fact that Alexis and I get to travel to gorgeous places to document love stories. I don’t think you can really call it “work”. But we do not take a single minute of it for granted! St. Augustine has held such a special place to Kat’s entire family for so many years. When Grant accepted a job in Boca Raton last year, St. Augustine was the perfect place for their wedding. Family and friends traveled from near and far to celebrate Grant & Kat. Their wedding weekend started off with the most wonderful rehearsal dinner, followed by the sweetest welcome party! Guests were greeted with a welcome bag filled with all things Florida. Such a thoughtful way to say thank you to their loved ones!
Grant and Kat are also two of the easiest people to celebrate! They both have such tender hearts, and are deeply loved by SO many. But they love that they have for one another is something special. They absolutely adore each other, and I cannot wait to see everything that God has in store for their marriage!
All of the years of dating long distance and living in different states was all worth it when Grant saw his bride for the first time! Their rooftop ceremony overlooking the bay could not have been more beautiful. Thankfully, we were blessed with the most wonderful breeze! And after the ceremony as I went with Kat & Grant to the marina for their portraits, I was overcome with such peace and joy. The water is my happy place, and getting to do these portraits for them was an absolute DREAM!
What stood out to me the most from their entire wedding weekend was how easily both families welcomed Alexis and I like we were one of their own. Being able to work with such wonderful families is what makes this job that much more special! Oh and having your fiancé there as a wedding guest, that’s just an added bonus 😉
Mr. & Mrs. Quist, you are such a gift to know and celebrate. Alexis and I adore you both, and are forever grateful that we were able to capture your MARRIAGE!! Enjoy some of our very favorites from your day (just a heads up, it’s a TON)!
SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU BOTH!
