The Hilton at Pensacola Beach is a very popular spot in this area for so many reasons, especially this time of year. Our beaches on the gulf are ridiculously beautiful this time of year with all of the refreshing greens and blues your eyes could possibly stand. Our beaches are also known for the amazing white crystal sand that always feels so wonderful on your feet. These very sands are where Shannan and Stephanie chose to sink their feet as they joined in holy matrimony. Shannan and Stephanie were joined and surrounded by so many family members and friends. From what I gathered, everyone was from out of town. I think a majority came in all the way from Texas. There was a good chance that rain may take over the beach, and the ceremony would’ve been moved indoors. Thankfully that wasn’t the case, and everything went as planned. We almost got through all of the portraits before the rain began, but luckily everything cleared up for us to go out and capture the couple on the glorious waterfront before the sun went down completely.

Darrin and his team at the Hilton did a fabulous job working with the couple and keeping everything seamless, even with the risky weather factor. Charlie, the DJ for the night, kept everything light and fun at the reception. Congratulations, Shannan and Stephanie! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of your beautiful wedding.
