Matt and Joy's St. Pete Wedding | Florida Wedding Photojournalism

My assistant Sharon and I had the privilege of photographing my cousin Matt Easterwood's wedding in St. Petersburg, FLorida on Saturday. His bride, the lovely Joy Strickler Easterwood, and family made all the Easterwoods and those related feel very welcome in the warm weather of Florida. The rehearsal dinner and reception took place at the awesome Isla Del Sol Yacht and Country Club. The wedding took place at the First United Methodist Church of St. Petersburg and was officiated by Pastor David Miller. In my meeting with the pastor before photographing the wedding, I found out that we are both graduates of the same seminary -- Candler School of Theology at Emory.

The family highlights of the reception were my 83-year-old Aunt Margaret dancing with my brother Scott and my 87-year-old mother Faye dancing with my cousin Larry. (See below.)

So here are just a few favorites:
