Mary + Dustin Wedding

“In ten years, I thought I had seen everything - but Mary and Dustin’s wedding was the first time I’ve seen a wedding pinata!  The cutest white, wedding cake pinata hung over the dance floor, and my favorite part of the reception was when Mary was blindfolded and smacked it until it rained Ring Pops and glow sticks!”

“I have seen just about every kind of grand exit imaginable in the last 10 years as a wedding photographer, but confetti will forever be my favorite!  There is something so festive and celebratory about it, and I thought the white ecofetti kept the classic aesthetic of the day going until the very end.  Plus the fact that you can just wash the ecofetti away afterward makes it even better!”

Natalia + Juan Wedding

“When I asked Natalia how she decided on Pensacola Beach for their wedding she told me that many years ago, on a vacation, she was so inspired by the natural beauty and decided then and there that if she were ever to get married our beach would be the place.  Natalia and Juan are originally from Argentina, and their guests travelled an extraordinary distance to be there for their intimate beach wedding!!”

Details - Behind the Ceremony

“One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is the most important part of all, the ceremony. The tears of joy, the moment two people are joined forever in a bond of love… it always tugs at our heartstrings… EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Today, we want to share a few backdrop variations and the small details (and hard work) that goes into embellishing the ceremony and defining the character of the celebration of love.”

“Gosh… The Pearl in Rosemary Beach, Florida is just exceptional. In the core of Rosemary Beach, it has the most breathtaking views of gorgeous beaches, surrounded by cute and unique shops (for pretty much anything you want) making you feel like you’re in the streets of Italy. The decor and style is exquisite colors of black and white and there is unique art all throughout the resort. Jill and Russell couldn’t have picked a cooler place.”

“5Eleven Palafox Event Hosting venue was just gorgeous for Laura and Andrew’s downtown Pensacola wedding. The windows, natural light, the outside garden patio, the amount of space, the florals, the candles, I mean the list could go on. The venue and the many talented vendors made everything just perfect for their summer wedding.”

“The hotel was built in 2003 and then we added the 18 story tower to include all suites overlooking the Gulf of Mexico in 2007. Weddings have always been a part of the culture here at the Hilton Pensacola Beach but we ramped that up in 2015. Since 2015 we have added the outdoor green space (8,000 sq.ft.) for ceremonies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico without getting your feet or nice dress shoes sandy.”

“Laura planned the perfect downtown Pensacola wedding, with everything being in walking distance for their guests.  The bride and groom, and their families spent the morning getting ready at The Lee House before walking across Seville Square for their ceremony at Old Christ Church.  Afterward everyone simply walked back across the park for the reception in the Alcaniz Courtyard!”

Tabitha + Jason Wedding

“Their courthouse ceremony had so many friends and family members in attendance that they were spilling out into the hallway to watch the ceremony!  When Tabitha and Jason made their exit from the courthouse one of the security guards told us he had never seen so many guests at a courthouse ceremony - it was pretty special!”

Kassy + Jimmy Wedding

“The family was of Scottish descent so they made sure to include some beautiful traditions throughout the day. The attire for one was on point, where certain men wore traditional dress of Scotland consisting of kilts, sporrans, a sgian dubh (a small, single-edged knife) a kilt hose, and ghillies; while their wives came in beautiful tartan sashes. During the ceremony the Reverend performed a traditional handfasting with a tartan symbolizing their union and binding their hands together to symbolize their union. They also made sure to have a piper there to play beautiful music with his bagpipes during the ceremony as well as during the reception.”
