The Club at Olde Cypress Wedding with Kevin + Kate
A lovely bride and groom, a gorgeous outdoor setting, and a guest list full of people who were there to celebrate this beautiful couple – Kate and Kevin’s Olde Cypress wedding in Naples, FL truly was a dream. On this gorgeous spring day, Kate and Kevin promised to spend their lives together before dancing the night away under the stars.
However, planning this wedding was anything but a breeze. Kate told us, “Planning a wedding through a pandemic has been nothing short of emotional and exhausting. Even as the date was coming close, I still had moments where I thought, “Are we finally going to get married?” There were days where it felt like until I am walking down the aisle, the wedding could get canceled again.”
But the couple was not one to give up. “We had to change dates, states, and venues, but it was all worth it because this is a day we got to share with our family and friends. I was so excited just to see family and friends that I hadn’t seen in over a year. I couldn’t wait to celebrate and dance with them,” Kate added. Kate and Kevin did dance the night away with all of their family and friends, and it was a joy to capture so many special memories from such a beautiful day!
A Relaxed Morning Full of Intimate Moments
Kate and her girlfriends got ready together before heading to The Club at Olde Cypress for the ceremony. I had a blast taking photos of all the girls just relaxing and having fun before Kate got into her wedding dress. One of my favorite parts of the day was Kate’s first look with her father. It was such a sweet and intimate moment, and her sister’s couldn’t help but get emotional as they watch nearby.
An Outdoor Ceremony at The Club at Olde Cypress
The ceremony gave way to so many more happy tears! Kevin (along with many of the family members) got emotional as Kate walked down the aisle at their gorgeous outdoor ceremony at The Club at Olde Cypress. Guests were able to stay cool and relaxed with the beautiful natural woven Raffia Palm fans Kate and Kevin provided during the ceremony. After the first kiss and a delicious cocktail hour, Kate and Kevin’s friends and family enjoyed an open-air dinner and dancing under the stars! The sunset was warm and glowy, and the full moon and stars cast such a romantic light. It was nothing short of a magical evening.
Dancing Under the Stars
As the first course was served, Kate and Kevin shared their first dance under the twinkle lights, right in the center of their family and friends. It was so sweet to see everyone come together and join them on this day, especially since this is exactly what Kate and Kevin had wanted for their wedding day – to be with her family and friends. Kate and Kevin had a blast on the dance floor and danced the night away along with all of their guests!
