Modern Tropical JW Marriott Wedding | Marco Island Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Modern Tropical JW Marriott Wedding | Marco Island Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

This is definitely one I'm excited to share with you. This was one of those weddings where you can physically feel the love surrounding everyone in attendance. Marco Island is home to some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The skies look like cotton candy as the sun goes down. Christina and John had all of their events at the JW Marriott, but they wanted to bring the outside in. Florida is so hot this time of year, and while they wanted their guests to be comfortable and in air conditioning, they didn't want it to feel like a ballroom. That's where hiring an incredible stylist and florist comes into play. Tom Trovato and Courtney worked together to create a tropical and lush landscape inside of a hotel ballroom. It was pure magic. It was exactly what the couple had been envisioning and beyond. Beyond that, my mid-century modern heart was so happy with the decor of the actual resort.

Intimate Inlet Beach Wedding | Inlet Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

I photograph several weddings a year that involve over 200 guests, elaborate details, and take years of planning. While I love photographing these, the intimate weddings are so welcomed in-between. It allows me to really connect with my clients and take every moment in. Karie and Andrew had an intimate beach wedding that took place behind the home they were renting on Inlet Beach. Everything took place inside the home and on the back deck. They only needed me there for a few hours; which was just enough time to cover what was most important to the two of them.

Married Under an Oak Tree in Eden Gardens State Park | Santa Rosa Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Adrienne and Wes had originally planned to have their wedding somewhere else, but Eden Gardens State Park stole their hearts. It was also easier for more family members to come if they had it locally. One of my favorite details is Adrienne using her grandmother’s dress as part of her reception display. It was such a special touch and a great way to honor her.

North Meets South Panorama Farms Wedding | Charlottesville Virginia Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin

This wedding is very close to my heart. I've been friends with Meredith and Chris for several years, so when they asked me to be the one to photograph this special day, I was beaming! They live in Manhattan, but got married in Charlottesville.  They love the south and wanted to have that be the main feature, while still including some of their New York lifestyle.
