Wes & Jamie’s Romantic Ribault Club Wedding

2014 05 Wedding - Wes & Jamie 12 Ribault Club

Rumor has it we may be playing a bit of catch up on blog posts after a rather crazy level of shoots it may.  The rumors weren’t wrong – we averaged nearly a shoot a day!  So, without further delay, here is our first wedding of May – a wonderful celebration of love at the picturesque Ribault Club on Fort George Island.  The weather, which broke just in the nick of time, didn’t stop family and friends from enjoying this very special day for Wes and Jamie – nor did the odd wedding-day mishap damper the couple’s spirits.  A truly enjoyable and meaningful time was had by all.  It was a true pleasure to be a small part of this gracious and kind couple’s wedding day!

David & Karen’s Splendid Jurassic Wedding

2014 04 Wedding David & Karen 11 - Nocatee

Around this time in 2002 I had just started a new job as the marketing guy at TNT Logistics.  Deremer Studios was still just a dream yet to be begun.  It was at this job that I met David.  Fast forward a decade or so, and David contacts me, sharing some big news – he was getting married!  David and Karen are both avid runners and truly seem like a perfect match for each other.  And so, on a dreary but joyful Saturday afternoon, the happy couple was married.  Both the wedding and reception were wonderful – with lots of little details (like the dinosaur theme) that all came together to make a memorable and precious time for the couple and guests alike.

Congrats David & Karen!  As always, check out all our favorite photos below – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

Drew’s Fun & Fantastic Bar Mitzvah

2014 04 Event - Drew Goldsmith 06 Bar Mitzvah

It’s always fun to connect with old friends – and a few weekends ago, we had the chance to do just that.  Drew’s dad and I go way back – having worked together for many years at a local Logistics company before I started Deremer Studios.  Several years ago, before the days of the blog, we also had the pleasure of shooting their eldest son’s Bar Mitzvah and so, when it was Drew’s turn, we got the call!  We had a real blast spending the day with this great family and capturing Drew’s special day.

Philip & Krystal’s Classic Orange Park Wedding

2014 03 Wedding - Philip & Krystal 16 Kirkwood Pres

Some say Spring – with its’ budding flowers and warming temperatures – makes for perfect wedding conditions.  That’s true in Florida – and Philip and Krystal’s wedding certainly proved the point!  The happy couple had a wonderful traditional service in the church before traveling to the St Johns River for bridal photos along its scenic banks – then it was off to the reception, held at the quaint Orange Park Woman’s Club.  While the weather inside was a bit frightful (thanks to a broken air conditioner) it didn’t stop the wonderful group from having a ball.

Mike & Marta’s Stunning TPC Sawgrass Wedding

2014 03 Wedding - Marta & Mike 11 TPC Sawgrass

After a week of cars, I thought we would switch it up a bit!  Bryn and had the wonderful pleasure of spending two days with Mike and Marta as they celebrated their wedding weekend in Ponte Vedra.  We covered the couple’s rehearsal celebration on the Friday before the wedding and then spent Saturday with the happy couple as they became husband and wife.  What made the event all the merrier is that we had the pleasure of meeting many of the folks a few years ago when we photographed the wedding of Marta’s sister, Kathy.  What a great day!

Meredith & Born’s Beautiful Church-wide Wedding

2014 01 Wedding - Meredith & Born 16 Eastside

We recently had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of a dear friend from our church.  We really love church-wide weddings, where everyone’s there, chipping in to make the day all the more special!  Over the years, Meredith, who’s one of three redheaded girls in her family has spent many a night watching our own redheaded girls while we’ve been out shooting.  Meredith met Born through her work with WinShape – and, as they say, the rest was history.  So, on January 11th, the two became one in the sight of God and in the presence of their church family.   Thanks you two for making us part of your special day, and thank you Meredith for being part of our lives for the past 10 years!

Stephani & Jonathan’s Transatlantic Wedding

2013 12 Wedding - Stephani & Jonathan 17 University Club

After a plethora of fine art shoots, I thought it might be good to change things up a bit.  We had the pleasure of shooting the gorgeous wedding of Stephani and Jonathan between Christmas and the new year.  Through unlikely circumstances, Jonathan, from the UK, and Stephani, from Jacksonville met online and not even the mighty Atlantic could keep them apart!  And so, family from ‘across the pond’ joined Stephani’s family here in Jacksonville for their wonderful ceremony – and if you take a peak at the slideshow – you’ll see there was no lack of humor or joy during their special day.
