When we first met up with Ally & Tyler for their engagement session last summer & found out about their nautical themed wedding, we knew it was going to be nothing short of impressive. Ally even brought that theme to their session with a cute nautical dress. Everything from the table linens to the oar signature board for guests was perfectly done. They had a late afternoon ceremony on the beach followed by the guests throwing bags of miniature beach balls at them upon their departure. Another great meal from Townsend catering and this group was set to party for the night. What a party it was. Thank you to Ally & Tyler for being such another awesome couple!

Absolutely swooning over the details from Jodie and David’s recent wedding. Fantastic job by Coastal Weddings by Victoria, Myrtie Blue, Betty Weber, and Townsend Catering.

 

It is with great excitement that we can finally share with you a beautiful bridal portrait session we photographed last week. Jodie and David said their “I do’s” this past Saturday, but we had the opportunity to take her in her beautiful dress to Ft. Pickens a week before the wedding to take some jaw dropping formal photographs.

 

Alys Beach Wedding: Thanks to Julie & Ralph, we finally had the opportunity to shoot a wedding at Alys Beach. Imagine how bummed we were when the forecast was 90% chance of rain on their wedding day. It rained a lot. But, great measures were taken to make sure the guests stayed dry and the skies actually parted a bit and allowed us to get some quick shots outside. Right before wrapping up photos to head to the reception, we were surprised with a rainbow.

The weather this past weekend sure did redeem itself. Gina & John tied the knot at one of our favorite wedding venues, Carillon. We post quite a few Carillon Weddings, and people ask all the time where this little slice of heaven is on the map. Well, it’s located on Hwy 98, just inside the western Bay County line near Panama City. Now you know!

Here is a little Sneak Peek for Gina and John. Big thank you’s to them for having us at this grand event!

Every wedding is an adventure for us, and this Labor Day was no different.  Two weddings and Tropical Storm Lee gave us quite a challenge with the weather. Luckily, our brides took it in stride and we forged ahead with two amazing weddings.  We’re going to give them both a little sneak peek to highlight how even such a stormy wedding day can attribute to a great photography portfolio.

We’ll start with Laura & Matt…. Laura’s dream beach wedding was moved into the Meeting House at Carillon, but we did make it down to the shoreline for some photos and it was dramatically beautiful.  Laura & her bridesmaids decided to be “Lee” fashionable with accessories to brighten the day!

Jennifer and Phillip were married the Sunday before Labor Day, and their Pensacola wedding was just as stormy. Luckily, their wedding was in a church with an inside reception as The Officers Club at Pensacola NAS. We had to work around the weather to get some outside photos, but we did get lucky a couple of times and it turned out great!  Nancy’s Haute’ Affairs did a fantastic job of making the day go as smoothly as possible.

Huge congrats to our couples for being such troopers!

There’s nothing better than than arriving at a wedding and being visually overjoyed with creativity and color schemes. That was the feeling we had as soon as we arrived at Carillon to Lauren & Trevor’s wedding. Lauren chose a pink & yellow wedding color scheme that was fun, modern, & just perfect for the season. This was definitely a FUN group of people who came for a destination wedding from Memphis and brought their southern hospitality with them. I think the phrase “They liked to dance” would be an understatement!
We gave this post a little extra love and hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed being there!

Their first dance started out with a fake-out slow song and then transitioned into a fast dance to everyone’s surprise.  They repeated that with their parents as well who could boogie down with the best.

One of our favorite Fall weddings was at Carillon Beach with Jaclyn & Jerry.  The weather could not have been much for perfect for this grand event in the Meeting House with reception following on the tented lawn. Christina with Nouveau did another amazing job with the bright florals and drapes inside the tent for an elegant almost ballroom feel to the wedding.  There were to many guests to fit inside the meeting house, so chairs were added on the outside decks and the french doors were opened to make the ceremony a beautiful indoor/outdoor wedding.  I’m just going to let the rest of the photos speak for themselves.

With Rae being 8 months pregnant, we enlisted the help of the fantastic Mary Beth Tyson Photography and the up and coming Michael Newman photography to help us with this wedding.  They got some great shots as well that I will be pointing out.  Let’s just say that with four photographers, this wedding was covered from head to toe. One of the Great shots Michael took…..Mary Beth found a strategic spot in the front of the Meeting House, and these next two shots are hers…She got one of my favorite shots of the day below….Rae was across from Mary Beth and caught both moms having a good time too..And Wes was in the back…  See? It was covered hahaAn amazing Fall sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.  Don’t let the warm tone fool ya though. It was COLD for this shot. Another shot Mary Beth got of Jaclyn & her father.  Love….This photo speaks to me…I love classic cars, and this 1966? Thunderbird getaway car could not have been more perfect…

We first met Katie and her mom a year ago at Carillon, and we knew instantly that we were a great match. Katie was planning a beautiful Fall wedding and there is no better time than October for a wedding in the Florida panhandle. Katie’s dress was absolutely stunning and she looked amazing in it. Her wedding in the meeting house followed by a tented lawn reception on a perfect afternoon could not have been more memorable. We wish her and Matt the best, and are thankful for the hospitality of their whole family!

The girls were a lot of fun…
Love!The boys were a fun bunch too…Katie was very photogenic 🙂The table linens were such an added charm….All of those little black spots are actually dragonflies. They are plentiful this year…The Gulf was eerily calm this day and this pretty much sums up why we love our beaches…This is probably in our top 3 favorite Confections on the Coast cakes… It was perfect for a little fun too…Matt’s brother gave a hilariously touching toast…The crowd had a great time and rocked the dance floor up to the last minute!and then it was time for goodbye…

Ginny & Brad were our New Year’s Day couple for 2010 at beautiful Carillon. The weather started out cold and dreary, but the sun made an appearance right as we were starting their photos and it became a crisp, cold afternoon with the most brilliant light we could have asked for. We always love our Carillon clients and these two were no exception. Their wedding was featured on the always classy Southern Weddings Blog last month. In case you missed it, take a look HERE.

Christina and Dan were married recently at the beautiful Carillon Meeting House followed by a lakeside reception on the Lawn. We knew these two and their group of friends were going to have a good time! They did not disappoint us and they got a little more crazy as the night went on. The day was very relaxed despite the sweltering heat and everything was absolutely perfect. Of course, the lineup of amazing vendors made the entire event flawless. Oh, how we love a Carillon Wedding!!!

Deep in the woods of the Walton and Bay County, FL line, is a little jewel known as Carillon. This was our first wedding at this exclusive little paradise, and I must say it is one of the finest wedding venues in the panhandle. Brian is a Panama City native currently living in NYC, and he and Lauren knew that putting their big day in Victoria’s hands would make it a perfect event. What an event it was. We started out with a beautiful afternoon, and then the heavens opened up with pouring rain right before the ceremony started. Luckily, it only lasted about an hour and cleared out just in time for the guests to enjoy a beautiful lawn reception. Those rain clouds also gave us the prettiest sunset of the year by far. We hope you enjoy this post as much as we enjoyed photographing it.
