Intimate Castlegate Wedding, St. Augustine, FL | Miranda + Taylor



Oh friends, we have such a beautiful wedding on the blog today and I am so excited to share this day with you all!

Looking back through their day, it’s easy to see that the joy Miranda and Taylor share pops right off of the screen! It’s infectious, and was something that was felt immediately when they walked into a room, but truth be told, that’s only a fraction of how it felt in person. Miranda’s personality is warm and bubbly and Taylor has a calm coolness about him, filled with a touch of good ol’ boy charm. They are the perfect balance for one another. But what struck us deepest was the incredible love and sincerity that they had for one another.

Their journey is different than most. They’ve spent most of their relationship up until now, apart. Sometimes for months on end. With Miranda working full time in a medical professional as a Neonatal Nurse, and Taylor, working full time serving his country in the military, making the choice of having a long distance relationship isn’t something they chose lightly. So when they chose to get married… they knew the challenge ahead of them, but they also knew that entering into this marriage wasn’t just a promise they were making to each other, but a privilege. They knew from the beginning that it wouldn’t just require dedication, it required sacrifice. It’s not an easy path to choose (we should know, because we have walked it too) but for them, their was no other answer but yes.

Taylor and Miranda, thank you just doesn’t seem big enough to express how we feel. But thank you. Thank you for inviting us in, and letting us bear witness to a love story that is so familiar to our own hearts, and yet one entirely beautiful all its own. Thank you for letting us capture the beginning moments of what we believe will be one of many grand adventures in your lives together. And thank you so much for being you, and loving each other the way that you do. It’s a true testament for what real sacrifice and dedication can bloom into, and you guys did it hand in hand. Congratulations friends, we are so so happy for you!
