As we sat at Brittany + Dan’s reception, a few of the other vendors + I commented on how awesome + laid back they were as a couple. No, seriously, we sat in almost an hour of Destin traffic before taking their photos and when we finally got to our location, they were as cool as they could possibly be…. which, on a balmy June afternoon on the beach, was no small feat. I knew from the moment I met Brittany at her bridal session earlier that week that this was going to be a fun, sweet wedding, filled with great people + lots o’ love and it well exceeded all expectations. Of course, I loved working with Betsy from White Sand Weddings (as always!) and I only got lost in the Emerald Grande elevators once (a new record!) Brittany + Dan – thank you for being the coolest clients! Enjoy your memories from an awesome day!
What pretty summer colors!!
Brittany surprised Dan with this sweet “around the door” moment before their ceremony!
After the aforementioned traffic, we found ourselves at Beasley Park in Destin. On a Saturday, at 4pm, in June. It was PACKED with people and the temps were creeping towards 3 digits. But Brittany, Dan + everyone else in their bridal party, including all those guys in 3 piece suits, helped make the process easy, quick + fun! THANK YOU!
A few pre-reception photos at the Emerald Grande…
This was my first time in the Harborview Room at the Emerald Grande + I loved it! So much natural light + open space!
We had to step out for the sunset and grab just a few more pictures!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!!!
