Moira & Arnie – Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding in Gainesville

Moira & Arnie – Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding in Gainesville

This wedding marked the first time I ever visited the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville, FL, despite the fact that I had attended UF for five years. What a gem this place is! I wish I had known of it while I was still a student. Speaking of Gators, Moira and Arnie also attended UF! So photographing their wedding was full of both pleasure and nostalgia at being back in my college town. One of my favorite parts of #thegatorbergs (awesome hashtag!) wedding was how colorful everything was. I’ve always loved bright colors, and it really fit with the couple’s fun personality.

The boutonniere on the chair was for Arnie’s father, who was there in spirit

Moira giving a lil’ extra push to fit the ring on Arnie’s finger, which had probably swollen a bit from excitement #justlikekatemiddleton

Love Arnie’s celebratory fist pump for marrying the girl of his dreams =)

I asked Arnie to whisper what he was thinking when he saw Moira walking down the aisle – much laughter and smiles ensued

The photo on the right was near the end of the Father/Daughter dance, when Moira’s dad gave her this fierce hug that said more than words could.

For the Mother/Son dance, Arnie’s mom was just beaming with happiness and pride.

One of my favorite shots of the night – I love the look of both joy and terror on her face! It was my first time seeing the Horah dance and it was an absolute blast to watch.sweetwater-branch-inn-wedding-photos-gainesville-moira-and-arnie-30
