We got a phone call a few months back from our friend Melissa at Masterpiece Weddings in Gainesville. Her best friend from Houston was coming to our beautiful beaches for her wedding, and Melissa knew we would all have a great time working together. The weather that week was horrible, but we had a some divine intervention and got an hour of dryness right around the ceremony. We had a really great time, and really enjoyed our afternoon with everyone!

Now that is Melissa on the right.  She played Maid of Honor and officiant that day.  They are hilarious!

Ashleigh and Galen booked us on what had to be the most popular Saturday of the year. We had three brides wanting to book us for this date within two hours of each other, and Ashleigh managed to seal the deal first! We first met them at their engagement session in Atlanta last Fall, and we knew then that Ashleigh had great taste for their wedding. This was a beautiful intimate event at a private beach house (Palazzo Del Sol) in Destin, with food and florals from the always fantastic Celestine’s. The weather was a little tricky with spotty rain showers off and on, but the back yard tent overlooking the Gulf was a lifesaver for everyone. The large, puffy, purple clouds are always great for photos, especially when blue skies are peaking through.
