Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Congratulations Cara & Drew!

Jul 5, 2008

Congratulations Cara & Drew!

Somehow, I get blessed with the hottest and sweetest brides and grooms. From the moment Cara showed up to her and Drew's engagement session in leopard heels, I knew her wedding at Jekyll Island Club Hotel was going to be nothing less than fabulous! As I said in the previous post about using Cara as my new business card bride, she is seriously my hot pink soul mate. She also threw into the mix punches of hot green and yellow for a beautiful bright wedding day. However, the weather didn't want to cooperate at first, and after a few rounds of questioning if the wedding should be moved in doors, God finally parted the clouds and revealed His beautiful sunlight so Cara could have the outdoor wedding of her dreams as she walked down the aisle to her high school sweetheart, Drew.

Cara is a huge Sex and the City fan also, so we had fun recreating some hot "Carrie and Mr. Big" shots that were just in a recent Vogue editorial. All I can say is these two are going to have beautiful babies!

It was so hard to narrow down favorites of the day, but here are a sample and their slideshow below!

Were these the most fabulous shoes ever made? When I saw, them, I seriously jumped up and down! Cara's aunt handmade these rhinestone by rhinestone and surprised her with them as a wedding gift. And I'm SOOOO excited because I found out today that her aunt has offered to make me a pair as well!

Cara and Drew's pup, Peyton, ready for the party! Is he not the most adorable thing ever? (Shhh! Don't tell Rhett!)

I love when a momma cries!

Gorgeous! Yes, Cara's eyes are really that blue!

My new business card!

After a rainy few hours, the sun finally came out just in time for the ceremony!

Peyton wanted to be part of the vows too!

A cool miracle story. Drew's grandparents (front row, far left) originally weren't going to be able to make it to the ceremony because they had car problems. But because of the rain pushing the ceremony back an hour, they were finally able to make it just in time for the new ceremony time! Is God good or what?

We were recreating one of her favorite shots from her engagement session!

Double the love!

The Vogue cover!

All her candy colored details!

With the ceremony pushed back for the rain, the reception had to get cut short, but DJ Joel Rabe of Lethal Rhythms still threw an awesome party!

A sparkling exit!

I, uh, also served as eyelash putter on-er, tie matcher, crouching tiger and dog handler amongst my many duties as photographer for the day. Just kidding, I had a blast and I love doing what it takes to the get best shot! A fab thanks for these candid shots from my second shooter and new friend Stacy Cross who flew all the way from Texas to share Cara and Drew's day.

It was so funny how my Trendy Camera Strap matched one of the trendy groomsman's tie!

This HAS to be ranked as your MOST fabulous and MOST fun wedding couple ever! ooh la la the vibrant colors of dresses, table designs, cakes, and shoes! Ah, those must have shoes! A new trend has now been set in the fashion world of weddings!

And another new trend I see coming.....a definite must have for the descriminating bride who wants true artistry in capturing love's happiest moments. No wedding is complete unless it has been "Scarlett-ized" with that gift from the heart that makes the most precious moments of love forever immortal.

Words could never express the joy I have felt looking at each and every one of our wedding day photos. You captured every look, every tear, every laugh, and every moment. As we scrolled down after each photo my heart was just racing awaiting the next unbelievable feeling you re-created for us with your camera lens. I feel so blessed to know you as a person and to have you as our photographer. I can't even begin to imagine attempting to pick our favorites because I love each and every one of them for a different reason. You have an undeniable talent that has made me and my ENTIRE family filled with happiness and I can't thank you enough because you captured the most important day of our lives and those images are how we will remember it for years to come, I can't think of a better way. I have no doubt you will be documenting me and Drew's family as it continues to grow in the coming years. Again, we thank you and will recommend you to EVERYONE we know. Your the greatest, and I truly believe we have each found in each other our own personal "hot pink soul mate". Love, Cara & Drew Southerland :) (and peyton too!)

There is no way in the world I can take all the credit for the planning of the wedding. I may have chosen most of the things but my mom absolutely made everything happen and brought it all together. I couldn't have done it without her and she is the best and most creative organized person I have ever met, so props to her! Thanks for all the fun comments to everyone, it was by far the best day of my life and I'm so happy Scarlett and her amazing blog makes it possible to share it with all of you!
