This was the most romantic honeymoon island wedding I’ve ever photographed and I can’t wait to show you this gorgeous wedding venue and their day!
Their family and friends gathered around them and put on a gorgeous wedding for them on Honeymoon Island State Park beach. They shopped, they steamed dresses, they did makeup and hair, they planned, and most of all, they celebrated and smothered them in love.
Follow though to read more about their union and some of my favorite highlights of their day!
a romantic Honeymoon Island Wedding
getting ready pictures
Make up and hair were done by the talented Ronnilyn Bradley.
Every little detail was perfect down to the gold starfish clip in her hair.
I think one of the most special parts of the day were the many touches throughout the day that highlighted someone special in their lives that no longer were with them.
They wanted to honor her grandmother during the ceremony, so we added it to her ring pictures. The bible made a perfect backdrop for the bride’s ring especially highlight this key verse about love. The Groom honored his mother by including her portrait charm in the bouquet. As you can see, the portrait of his mother was a beautiful touch to this bouquet of flowers.
The girl’s suite was full of excitement and fun as they all got ready. Details such as flower crowns, special necklaces, and a Bride being zipped into her gown are so important to a wedding.
Portraits of the Bride and Groom
Her color choices were drool worthy with shades of pastel that looked so beautiful on the beach. I am still swooning over them.
Sadly, the Groom’s mother has passed on, but the love for her and her life was clear. The Groom’s Aunt honored her in so many beautiful ways and you can see one shown here during her pinning on the groom’s boutonniere.
The wedding ceremony
And then everyone’s favorite part… the ceremony began!
My most favorite part was the Groom’s face when he saw his beautiful bride coming down the Isle.
The Bride and Groom decided to do a blending ceremony to honor the blending of families; The Bride and her daughter to the Groom.
They performed it with colored sand to commemorate this beautiful union.
The wedding reception
After the wedding ceremony was over, we headed to the Bride’s Father and Step Mother’s home where they had created the most romantic reception area I’ve ever seen!
First dances, the bouquet toss, and cutting of their cake completed the ceremony so nicely!
We are so happy for this gorgeous couple and their new adventure!
