CJ + Ian ][ The Pavilion at Mixon Farms Bradenton Florida Wedding

We nearly didn’t get to shoot this wonderful wedding or get to meet this amazing couple! CJ and Ian were referred to us by a mutual friend through Facebook… except their message never got to us! Our mutual friend saved the day with a last minute message! At our initial consultation, we knew they were going to be a fun couple to work with. Little did we know, it would also end up being a joy to work with their family, who runs events in North Carolina. Think was also or first experience working with the dedicated team at Mixon’s!

CJ and Ian treated us like family and even invited Rachel to breakfast the day of the wedding! The fun continued back home for makeup and hair with CJ surrounded by her best friends who traveled 700 miles to be there for her magical day. Some silly poses later (with resulted in the largest spoof album in all weddings we’ve shot) was a migration to the venue, where CJ’s family had meticulously decorated the venue with amazing details and a magical theme fit for a princess.¬†

CJ and Ian’s formal photo at Mixon’s vineyard has become an iconic photo for the venue and for us, with many brides asking to do a variation of the photo at the vineyard. Thanks again for propelling us to stardom guys!
