Old World Wedding Style Photoshoot // St. Augustine

Historic Castillo de san marcos drawing


Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida • May 2016 • Bridal Model: Bianca Ortiz

Our bride Bianca wore the Wtoo Kennedy Gown in Prosecco, from the L.A. Boutique de Bridal in Melbourne, Florida, with natural bridal makeup by Amanda Hopcraft the Catherine bridal tiara and the Olivia veil by Madame Lace.

Where the Old World meets the New World: Feeling so inspired by the dreamy floral & lace details and 17th century atmosphere at the Castillo de San Marcos- built by the Spanish empire back in 1672. This styled wedding session was dreamed up by my local photographer friend Jessica Bellinger, who invited our local photography community group over on Facebook to join in on the fun. It was the perfect excuse for this Orlando Wedding photographer to travel up to St. Augustine for the weekend! We all contributed to renting the Castillo for the afternoon, and the results were stunning. The inspiration for the session was highlighting the Old World elegance of this historic site with a modern, elegant style that featured organic tones of coral, pink and eucalyptus, blackberries, an oak farm table, ivory candles, antique brass & mirror trays.
