Love comes easy for them. In the way that his hand gravitates towards hers every time she’s near enough to grab it, and the way she so effortlessly nuzzles into him when his arms wrap around her waist. Watching them together you can’t help but know that their’s won’t be a marriage of work or of struggle, it will simply be a lifetime of loving each other their hardest. Because, when it comes down to it, that’s the only way they know . . . . . .

On this beautifully warm fall day in Sarasota, Aaron and Jessica were married on the lawn of the ever so stunning Edson Keith Mansion. The entire ceremony felt so very romantic, with the sun shining through the moss-filled trees and a breeze blowing in from the water. Jessica looked every bit the perfectly timeless bride in a gorgeous Madison James gown (can we just TALK about those scalloped cap sleeves?!) and Aaron looked so dapper that Ben couldn’t help but compare his solo portraits to a men’s fashion magazine (only BETTER!) The two of them opted to wait until their ceremony to see each other, and as Jessica walked down the aisle Aaron’s entire face lit up in the sweetest of ways.
After some portrait time on the grounds of the mansion (we seriously couldn’t adore this place or it’s heirloom feel any more!) the bride and groom shared a first dance on the porch while their friends and family circled around. Afterwards, guests dispersed between the different dining rooms of the mansion before venturing out for a party beneath the string lights. And friends, what a seriously epic party this was (shout out to Cory at Grant Hemond for keeping the evening flowing perfectly : ) The night was fueled by 90’s hits and some of our most favorite party anthems which carried everyone until the very end when the newlyweds were sent off through a tunnel of bubbles (one of our favorite and most magical off send-offs!)
Aaron + Jessica, we had so much fun spending the day with the two of you and can’t wait to see all the epic things this new adventure has in store for you guys! Enjoy some of our favorites from your best day ever!
Love + Laughs,
