When the inquiry came flying into our inbox last year with the venue listed as Miami we only had to think about it for a half a second. What is not to love? Skip town in March and head to the gorgeous white sand of Miami Beach…yes please!
Miami did not disappoint and neither did Michele and Kenley. We were so glad it worked out last November for us to shoot their engagement session during our romantic getaway to NYC. It gave us a chance to bond over diner food and watch them geek out over comic books. Fast forward five months and we were hugging once again in opposite weather. The gorgeous Palms Hotel played host to their picture perfect wedding day. The weather was partly cloudy and 78 degrees. You couldn’t choose better conditions.
Michele and Kenley set the bar high for our 2010 wedding season. What a way to start the season!
Michele was stunning!!! Her skin is like glass.
Ryan said when he popped into Kenley’s room he saw all of this laid out perfectly. I’m not gonna lie, it made me smile. Me likey some anal organizing.

Let’s get our pose on….
I know this is similar to the last, but I love them both and couldn’t choose.
We moved inside for a few shots using their fun decor.
Kenley wanted in on the action grabbing his brother’s camera while we were shooting Michele at the bar.
There is Kelley Boykin our lovely assistant and friend who came down from Palm Springs to help us out for the day.
Getting ready for the main event!
The pastor going over his notes.
The beautiful grandparents.
I think Michele’s grandma has one of the sweetest smiles.
The cocktail hour area.
Michele’s father gave a beautiful speech.
and then he serenade the audience with some John Denver tunes!
The man LOVES to sing.
I have to end with this photo because it makes me laugh. Charlie (who is in blue to the right) is the older brother of the subject in the photo. His brother was getting increasingly boisterous on the dance floor and Charlie leaned over to me and said, “You just wait, he’s going to be the guy with the tie around his head before you know it.” About an hour later……
MONEY!!!!! Who’s got two thumbs and wears a tie around his head….that guy! Haha.
Michele and Kenley, it was a killer wedding. You guys were the picture of relaxation and happiness on your wedding day. The venue, the weather, your family….perfection! Thank you for kicking off our wedding season with a bang. We loved Miami and we love you guys!
