What emotions were apparent on the wedding day?
One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to hear every couple’s origin story. Usually, details unfold as the day progresses – I hear snippets of history throughout the morning, and the toasts and speeches usually tie it all together. Kassidy and Andrew’s story is really the story of their two families, who have been best friends since Kassidy and Andrew were in elementary school. Despite their parents’ jokes about arranging a marriage between them so that friends could become family, Kassidy and Andrew didn’t fall for one another until 2020. Andrew ended up quarantining with Kassidy and her family, and the rest is history. It was incredibly special witnessing these families’ joy. Everyone already knows and loves one another, and Kassidy and Andrew’s destination wedding in Destin turned “framily” into “family.”
Did the weather cooperate on the wedding day?
In classic Florida fashion, the weather decided to give us every possible look. It was pouring when we arrived, followed by the kind of steamy, sunny, post-rain humidity that only Florida can deliver. Half an hour before the ceremony, it rained again – but this time, it cleared the humidity and heat from the air, and left a breeze and a thin layer of clouds in the sky. The afternoon on the beach was STUNNING, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for Kassidy and Andrew’s beach wedding.
Was there an exceptional vendor?
I always adore working at Henderson Beach Resort. It’s one of the few truly full-service resorts and wedding venues in the heart of Destin. Their customer service is top notch, and everyone at the resort is always kind, energetic, and ready to do whatever needs to be done to make the clients happy. I love working with vendors who see weddings as a team sport (it takes a village, people!), and Henderson is the perfect place for a destination wedding in Destin.
