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!

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!







We simply adore Watercolor weddings and really enjoy working with our friend Cheryl Walton every time we have a wedding there. She talked so highly of Cindy and Robert, and we knew why the first time we met with them. Although their kids are almost grown, they are a perfect modern day version of the Brady Bunch. They love vacationing on 30a and knew that’s where they wanted to plan their destination wedding from Tennessee. Watercolor was a perfect choice, and Cheryl & staff did an amazing job as usual. The day was completely laid back, stress free, and their guests really seemed to have a great time.

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.
