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.

 

Wedding season kicked off with a bang recently at Carillon. Emily and Luke had some great plans in mind with this wedding and it was perfection.  Black & White was the theme with everything from table linens to custom pillow covers for the fire pit complete with s’mores.  The pineapple themed “Webbertini” was a big hit thanks to our friends at Townsend Catering. Instead of a sign-in book, they took a photo of themselves and turned it into a puzzle, having each guest sign the back of one of the many pieces. Luke’s rock & roll side made an appearance too thanks to that awesome guitar Emily surprised him with as a wedding gift.  Confections on the Coast also came through with an AC/DC groom’s cake that showcased every album by the group. It was quite the party as this crowd knew how to boogie to the Mr. Big Band. Let me give a plug to Kyle LaMonica for his amazing talent singing at the ceremony and reception.  If you are looking for a musician, he is a super talented one man show and a nice guy too! It was another great event thanks to all of the effort by our favorite Carillon vendors. Our thanks to Emily and Luke for having us and being such a nice couple too.  We had a really great time!

It’s been a while since we posted an E-session, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity. Shelley and Ryan are getting married at the Sandestin Resort in 2012, and recently made the trip from Baton Rouge for some fun at Watercolor Resort. We spent some time playing around the property on a stormy afternoon before making it down to the beach for a brilliant sunset. The sunsets this time of year are just amazing, especially during stormy weather. We really love these two and are super excited about their wedding next year. Enjoy!







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!

Kara & Rich chose us based on our website, but as soon as I met them, I KNEW we were a match.  I could not have been more right.  We had an absolute blast all day long.  We walked in the room where the ladies were getting ready and it was immediate energy!  The iPod was blaring, the bridesmaids were gorgeous in their jewel-toned dresses, Renee (from Two Fishes) was beautifying Rich’s mom, and Kara’s reality-show-star-friend, Jon (from Shear Genius), was busy fussing over Kara’s perfect hair!

Kara & Rich wanted to party immediately after the ceremony, so we had a first look session and it was perfect.  I am pretty sure Rich was blown away by the sight of his bride.  She was stunning.  After wrangling the wedding party for some pre-ceremony photos, we headed to the beautiful ceremony site at the Western Lake Park.  After a tear-filled ceremony and some quick family photos, we stole the crazy couple for some pretty golden light photos.

Not long after the reception began at the Bait House Pool Deck, Jon whisked Kara to the locker room for a wardrobe change and a completely fresh hair style.  Jon really is a great friend to Kara and he wanted to make sure she was perfect for her day.   At the end of the night, Kara & Rich jumped aboard the Watercolor boat and sailed into the darkness.

We love being able to capture that first look with just the two of them….Kara was just gorgeous… They are SO good together…Of course we had some fun too!Jon was having a great time too…Love, love, love bright colors on days like this!Here are some of the day’s details…Beautiful spot for a first dance…Fake moustaches came out towards the end of the night and Kara’s mom knew how to use it!They were whisked away at the end of the night on the lake boat….Check out those teal shoes!

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…

Some couples are high maintenance and others are super laid back. Marti & Mark were definitely in the laid back category. It was a weekday destination wedding with their close friends and family and it was a perfect day. Of course, Jennifer of It’s a Shore Thing helped on that part! Marti’s gorgeous silk gown floated along the sand as if she were Cinderella.
