Exciting news - Brent and my wedding is featured in the winter edition of Gulf Coast Bride Magazine!
It's been almost a year since we got married (May 4, 2013) and this magazine feature is just the icing on the cake for the great first year we've had!
For those of you who don't know, we got married in Florida in Brent's Grandparents, Dandy & Papa's back yard on the bay. We couldn't of asked for a prettier backdrop, full of mossy trees, lush landscaping and the beautiful St. Andrews Bay. Our wedding planner, Beck England of BE Events really helped us bring our wedding day dreams to life and our photographer, Tisha Saunders of Flashback Photography, was around every corner to capture the special moments, leaving us with beautiful shots we will cherish forever.
Since getting married we've had a whirlwind year and I've been a terrible post bride; posting maybe 2 wedding pictures...so, my patient, loving wedding party will finally get to see some of the magic captured on our special day. Speaking of our wedding party...
Pretty good looking group, eh?
Our wedding was layered with details both aesthetic and personal, the above photo is my bouquet with two broaches attached. The birds next broach belonged to my Grandma. My sister had the same broach on her bouquet at her wedding :). And the other broach belonged to my Great Grandmother.
Here I am with my bridal party! We were sequestered to the gazebo pre wedding to avoid being seen by the guests as they arrived.
The guests sat in these pretty gold chivari chairs.
Here I am peeking out from behind the curtains on the gazebo right before it was time for my Dad and me to make our big walk down the isle.
The above shot is of the reception, under the nights sky and a sea of lights. There was dancing, toasting, eating and visiting - our reception was such a great end to a magical day.
And the final shot.....a little kiss before we left the reception.
Wow - what an honor it is to have our wedding day featured in a magazine! I swear, sometimes I feel like I would be totally justified to pinch myself 24/7 at this life of ours. Lucky, lucky, lucky! Thanks Gulf Coast Bride - what a great 1st Anniversary present!
