Leigh & Steve melt my heart. Their destination wedding at the Naples Botanical Garden was intimate and so full of emotion, they cried, then I cried a little behind my camera! Then their twinkly light and moonlit reception on the terrance of The Inn on Fifth was just as emotional. These two REALLY really love one another. We see love every day, and what Leigh and Steve have is rare. It was evident in the way the held one another intimately and softly as if Cody & I weren’t even there while we took their pictures. It was the words they could barely get out during their ceremony because they were overcome, and it was the constant smiles and stolen kisses and wiped tears of joy that I noticed throughout the whole day. Their love is so real and raw, and yet so sweet and full of joy too. My favorite is when Steve makes Leigh laugh – her laugh is contagious and well, you’ll see below…he just lights her up!
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Watkins! We were so happy to be a part of your beautiful destination wedding!
