One of the many perks of photographing weddings is that we have the opportunity to attend gorgeous events every weekend, and we have seen so many beautiful designs - winter weddings, casual downtown events, beach ceremonies, nighttime weddings, and more.  It’s a treat to meet other wedding vendors - DJs, planners, florists, and more - but most of the time we are observers of the event only. Enter the Florida Panhandle Dining Club Experience, and incredible dinner club organized by Brian Buonassissi, a New York-based DJ with roots in the Florida panhandle.  This event was an opportunity for like-minded wedding vendors to enjoy an evening of treats and pampering while indulging in great conversation. It was an honor to photograph this winter’s event at The Henderson Beach Resort in Destin. Check out this incredible tablescape created by Rachelle Youd - and here’s hoping a wedding client sees this and uses it as inspiration for their design!  The unique, dark and moody aesthetic would be stunning for an evening wedding.
