Destination weddings are really F-U-N. Destination weddings where we’re involved in planning and executing the whole weekend of events are SO F-U-N! Not only do we get to maximize our creativity across multiple events, we’re able to guide a bride and groom through each and every detail of what will be one of the most memorable experiences of their new lives together. Because we’re involved in every detail throughout all of their planned events, the bride and groom can just sit back, relax, and enjoy their big, fabulous weekend! And because we’re privy to the overall experience, we can really be sure to build the weekend up for the grand finale event: THE WEDDING! It’s our goal for your guests to leave feeling super-taken care of – maybe a little sunburned – and filled to the brim with happy bellies, full hearts, and a pair of worn out dancin’ shoes!
Terri & O’Neal’s wedding weekend was no exception to the we-only-do-things-that-are-awesome rule. We hit the mean streets of Santa Rosa Beach and put on a 30A wedding weekend that may hit the books as one of the best ever. The running theme of the weekend was ‘Faith, Hope & Love’, which was inspired by two very two sweet pups of our groom, “Faith” and “Hope” . . . the only thing missing was – you guessed it – LOVE! Enter our pretty bride and you have not only a fabulous theme for a wedding, but a truly special love story.
The number ’13’ also held special significance for them, as it denotes their favorite Bible scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:13, which says, “And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love.” Despite the number ‘7’ winning the lucky number popularity contest of the century, we think they hit the jackpot with each other in truly finding love as their missing link. And what better day to celebrate that love than on April 13, 2013? Quite clever, in our humble opinions.
Terri & O’Neal’s weekend agenda included an everyone’s-invited Beach Day, catered by our friends over at Chanticleer Eatery in Grayton Beach, a white-themed beach party/rehearsal dinner, with a tasty shrimp boil provided by Grayton Beach Catering, a drop-dead gorgeous ceremony held at St. Rita’s Catholic Church, and a fabulous Western Green reception in Rosemary Beach. Mega-ultra-huge-ginormous THANK YOU to that talented duo over at Rae Leytham Photography for the amazing images they shared documenting the entire weekend!

Guess what we used in lieu of a traditional guest book? A cute way for guests to leave a fill-in-the-blank message of HOPE!

We can always count on Facetime PhotoBooth for hours and hours of ridiculous fun.
Christina, of Events by Nouveau Flowers, always knocks it out of the park with her designs and florals – and this one was no exception!
Wild guess what table number was reserved especially for our bride and groom? Hint: It’s not 7.
Townsend Catering just never ceases to amaze us.
No wedding is complete without a super-sweet sendoff in A Bride’s Ride Packard Convertible!
