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.

We spent last Friday night at the Sandestin Hilton Resort for the rehearsal dinner of Beth and David that was planned and executed by It’s a Shore Thing. It was a fantastic event with approximately 120 guests, and Celestine’s once again did an amazing job with the florals The dinner was originally planned for outside, but the rain spoiled the first half of the night (that rain thing sounds like a broken record lately doesn’t it?). Regardless, it was beautifully done inside the Hilton Ballroom and then the weather allowed us to head outside for a bonfire that started with fireworks and lots of fun. We also got to try out our new photo booth capabilities in one of the cabanas that you will see at the bottom. If anyone is interested in a photo booth at your event, please contact us about pricing and options!

It was really a great party. I overheard someone (I think a bridesmaid) say, “this is the best wedding I have ever been to and we haven’t even had the wedding yet!”


The blue drink was the specialty of the night….

Beth was overwhelmed when she saw the room….

Gifts were given to the parents….

Lots of toasts brought plenty of laughter…

Then the fireworks began a wonderful evening on the beach….

Check out the cabanas. The one on the left is Wesley and the photo booth. You can see some people getting set up in that one! There were 2 cabanas set up like living rooms. There was a “late night snack” cabana with mini burgers and mini hotdogs and pizza and a dessert cabana with an ice cream bar and key lime pie! YUM! Oh, and there was a S’mores station near the fire pit.

The bride and groom loved the photo booth….

And so did everyone else!
