Kayla and Jason have been a couple that we have loved working with over the last year. From glamorous styled sessions, to our promotional behind the scenes video (yes- they can officially say that they are models and actors for us now) to their engagement session… it’s safe to say that any time we get to be around them… we have huge smiles on our faces. So, as we sat across from Kayla and Jason after filming our promo video, we chatted about their upcoming wedding at The Riverhouse in St. Augustine. And then, Jason said it.
“Everyone says I’m going to cry… but I just really don’t think I am going to.”
Kayla agreed. “Yeah I pretty much don’t expect you to cry.” And that was that. In that moment, without ever realizing it, Kayla and Jason set their wedding day up for a success that they probably had no idea of.
No expectations. No pressure.
Just permission for the two of them to be exactly who they are. Which is a really good thing. Because not only could Kayla and Jason double as models.. (we promise you that we didn’t pay them to fake a wedding for our portfolio y’all 😂), but they are both equally beautiful people inside and out. Their hearts and passion for their family, friends, and one another truly makes everyone around them blessed to be in their presence.
And their wedding day?
Y’all… we couldn’t have planned it any better ourselves. Soft hues of pink complimented by the most beautiful burgundy florals… from beginning to end it was like Kayla and Jason’s wedding was planned by a bridal magazine. But that doesn’t surprise us. Because Kayla’s attention to detail and stunning taste is evident from the way she carries herself, down to the homes that she sells. And if you need any further proof… just look at her (now) husband, Jason.
He is smart, outgoing, loyal, and he can make a room light up with just a smile. But our favorite part about Jason? The way that he loves Kayla. Because the truth is, under the jokes and debonair smile, Kayla is truly his world, and every time he looks at her?
It is so completely evident.
And we can’t blame him. Kayla is beautiful, empathetic, kind, and patient. So even though Jason might have thought he wouldn’t get emotional as he saw his future wife walk down the aisle towards him… well… we knew all along that he would.
Kayla and Jason, over the last year it has been such a complete pleasure and honor to get to not only photograph and work with the two of you, but to genuinely get to know and love you both. From fixing hair and makeup, to enjoying craft beers together, we are so incredibly thankful for the friendship that we have made. It’s honestly no surprise to us that your wedding day was absolutely breathtaking. What was a surprise? How relaxed the two of you were throughout the day (aside from the excited nerves to see one another). But now that we think about it… it makes total sense. Because when you know that you are marrying your best friend… at the end of the day, that is all that really matters. And that is exactly why the two of you make such an amazing #cooneycouple. You are hardworking, compassionate, loyal, and at the end of the day… you know what really matters most. We can’t wait to continue to drink craft beer together as we watch you love grow over the years. Cheers to all that is to come you guys. We truly love you both.
Hugs and lots of love,
