Live Oak Plantation Wedding | Kayli + David

Live Oak Plantation Wedding | Kayli + David

Oh hey, one of my all time favorite weddings EVER.

I think I’ve been holding off on sharing this wedding because I just don’t have the words to describe how special it was. I’m afraid I won’t do it justice, but it deserves to be shared!

My favorite weddings are the weddings where the marriage comes first and the people second. Where the carefully planned details, handled by absolute pros below, take a back seat to the true focus of the day. The weddings where couples take a moment to truly appreciate all the people that traveled from all over the country (sometimes world!) to celebrate one of the most important days of their life. The weddings where hugging their mom and grandma is more important than getting the perfect sparkler exit shot.

Kayli and David are special people. You can tell when people are special because their people adore them and that was 100% the case this day. I was truly honored and thankful they chose me to capture it.

This couple managed to squeeze in a SURPRISE helicopter entrance to their ceremony. That’s right, nobody knew until the bride and groom rolled up (flew up?) in a helicopter just before the ceremony.

Lydia, a lover of BRIGHT and bold colors, decided to showcase that by using jewel tones in her wedding colors. I love how it turned out and totally didn’t know that teal was universally flattering 😍.

Fiore and Laura blew the design out of the park with florals and table decor!

Landshark Landing Wedding | Erick + Angela

One of the sweetest couples I know - Angela and Erick! I feel so thankful to work with the caliber of clients that I do on a weekly basis. It’s been an absolute pleasure working this wedding with the most gorgeously bold details! Giving me life!

Landshark Landing is the best reception venue for beach weddings on Pensacola beach. Ok, I’m a little biased, but it’s super beachy cute! It barely needs any decor, but Supposey dressed it up gorgeously!

Loved this team!

Military Palafox Wharf Wedding | Steph + Joe

“What is the most important thing to you on your wedding day?

Joe. I never thought I would want to marry anyone, much less that anyone would want to marry me. My father always taught me that no man ever wants to be married and any man that was married did so against his will or only as a means to an end. I spent my entire life believing him. Joe proved my dad and me wrong on every level. I can't believe I am lucky enough to have met a man as loving and caring as he is, and that he wants me. He made me believe in marriage because he believes in marriage with me so much. The most important thing to me on our wedding day is professing and celebrating our love for each other on the day that marks the beginning of the rest of our lives together.”

😭

This vendor team was also amazing to work with! Sara always creates amazing bouquets. Kelly from Southern Frills got creative and came up with a banner idea for an exit with limited options! The food was fantastic and music was awesome!

10/10 guys!

Bright and Airy Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach Wedding | Ambia + Carlos

One of the most unique venues I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at here in the Panhandle! Ambia managed to pull together a spectacular wedding with stunning details that pulled from all of her and Carlos’ favorite things in just three short months.

From the bride:

“The mood I am trying to capture is the waning days of summer, which I think of as warmth and nostalgia.

In terms of vibe, I was trying to find a balance between the sophistication and energy of New York where we met and lived for many years and the quiet elegance of DC where we now live and the southern charm of Birmingham where Carlos grew up and put that all into the context of the coastal cities that we gravitate to (and that were the destinations of our first vacations together (San Diego, Destin, Los Angeles, Orange Beach).”

I think she succeeded! Here is her album design sans family formal spreads!

Pensacola Beach Wedding at Hemmingway's | Hannah + Sean Album Design

Guys, I’m so behind, BUT I have to post these album designs! They also make good blog posts soooo…

With my second double wedding weekend coming up tomorrow, I'm about 4 weddings and 3 sessions behind on editing, but feeling so incredibly lucky to be here!!

(Missing a few family formal spreads for privacy reasons ;))

This album will likely be 10x10 with either a velvet (I think she’s leaning towards velvet!) or leather album cover. Albums are guaranteed for life with proper care and everyone should definitely invest in one!

I HAD to share this one. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of designing this wedding album with and for Sarah.

YES! You should definitely get one (with alllll the upgrades!)!!

Her wedding happened 9/2/18 near Sacramento, CA. (If you know anything about me, it’s that I am forever in love with the west coast and that’s where my heart is) at The Maples Woodland Ranch. A beautiful venue in a small town.

I was SO incredibly happy to have to opportunity to capture this wedding and work with Sarah and Max who have been a dream from beginning to end.
