Brooke & Chris: 10.19.13 | Palazzo Del Sol | Destin, Florida

I am SO excited to share this gorgeous wedding with you all!  After traveling all the way from Memphis, Tennessee, Brooke + Chris were married on October 19, 2013 at the beautiful Palazzo del Sol in Destin, Florida.  I have been looking forward to shooting at this venue ALL YEAR LONG!  And to top it off, we couldn’t have asked for sweeter clients.  Brooke + Chris were so kind + easygoing – Jeff + I had such a wonderful time documenting their love and the amazing day that unfolded as their family + friends came together to celebrate this lovely couple.  We kept looking at each other during the reception and saying, “We’re having too much fun for this to be considered work!!”  Brooke + Chris, I am so happy that you chose the Gulf Coast as your wedding destination and picked us to be your photographers!  Much, much happiness to you!!

When it was time to begin the ladies’ pre-ceremony portraits outside, it was lightly raining, but Brooke was determined to have beautiful outdoor images, so we braved the sprinkles and got some amazing photos!

All of Brooke’s bridesmaids carried different bouquets and I couldn’t pick a favorite, so you get to see them all!

Jeff got to spend the morning with the groomsmen before they headed over to Palazzo del Sol for their portraits….

Although we were dealing with a little rain throughout the day, we had the most beautiful light during their portraits.  My fall sunsets along the Gulf have been nothing short of amazing.  All of Brooke + Chris’ portraits look like a dream!  In my opinion, I’ll take the rain if it comes with a sunset like this!
