Carol and Mitchell live in Jacksonville, but traveled over to Destin for their special day.
And they could not have had a more stunning day!!!

The weather was absolutely perfect – clear blue sky, the ocean was that sparkly turquoise blue we get sometimes on magical days, and look at this amazing sunset we got after the ceremony to top it all off!

Just going to share some of the highlights of the day (instead of sharing way too many photos)!

They started their day off by getting ready with their closest friends in a gorgeous beach house!

Such a stunning bride!

The groom

Had their sweet first look on the beach, then they exchanged their vows –
Just the two of them in front of this beautiful scene (well, besides the bridal party watching from afar) 😉
I absolutely loved this special, intimate moment!

(I believe it is so important for every couple to make some time for just the two of them on their wedding day- to be together, to have an intimate moment, breathe, and just remember what the day is all about).

Asked Mitchell to toss Carol’s dress in the air to get it flowing in the wind… Here’s what I got – and I like this better ;)))

Found this gorgeous boardwalk and I loved these so much.

The Bridal Party (on the beach in the middle of the bright day)!
Super challenging. I have some tips to share on this soon!!!

The pretty girls! Absolutely love the bridesmaids dresses!

The crazy guys… (don’t worry I always take lots of “normal” smiling photos too haha!!! Like I said, only showing a few from the entire gallery..) 😉

Skipped some other parts of the day, but I am dying to show you this beautiful sunset on the bay…

You can see the behind-the-scenes of me taking these sunset shots on my Instagram! You will find it on my IGTV.

Some fun shots from the reception!

Thank you!

Getting to be a part of this beautiful day and become lifelong friends with these two just fills my heart to the brim. <3
