JT and Holly – Beach Wedding in Panama City – Destin Beach Photographer

Where all my married folks at??

You remember the day you got married? And that feeling that you just had to smile from ear to ear the entire day?

JT ACTUALLY smiled ear to ear literally the entire day and it was the best thing ever!

Some couples just radiate a specific type of joy, and these guys had an invisible bubble of happiness around them that no one and nothing (including the threat of a downpour of rain) could penetrate.

It was such an honor to photograph two so-in-love people.

Holly’s dress was the literal PERFECT dress for her beach wedding! Light and flowy with touches of sparkle.

She had such an amazing tribe surrounding her that day <3

Moms helping their daughters into their wedding dress is one of my favorite parts of wedding days. I cry pretty much every time.

JT and Holly exchanged letters before seeing each other on the big day.

He also gifted her with a leather bag she had been eyeing, and even had it imprinted with the date of their wedding!

JT and Holly decided to go for a first look to better accommodate their schedule.

It was also nice for them to have a moment to just breathe before the events of the big day.

This also made me realize that every couple needs to get a show of themselves in their reception space before everyone else comes in! How stinking cute are they?!

They decided to forego a traditional wedding cake in favor of cookie cakes! JT was a little excited about this…

After the downpour we headed out to the beach for family photos – talk about an adventurous group! A little rain wasn’t going to dampen their spirits!

Literally the best bridal party! They looked at me a little funny when I asked them to run, but they took it like champs!

All these gorgeous girls wanted to do was play in the sand – and really who could blame them?

Holly was escorted down the aisle by her mom and her three brothers. I seriously don’t think there was a dry eye around. I even noticed some unrelated spectators wiping away tears as they watched her walk towards her groom.

JT reminds me of a point I always like to make to couples about their wedding day. Many couples (brides) are worried that if they decide to do a first look that the groom’s reaction won’t be as spectacular as if they’re first seeing them coming down the aisle. JT’s reaction proves this is not the case! You both will be so overjoyed at the moment finally arriving, not to mention the pressure being off plays a huge part in how you soak this moment in.

They were literally so excited to marry each other!

The whole ceremony was filled with laughter and tears of joy as these guys pledged their lives to each other.
Destin Beach Photographer
They’d been waiting for this moment for months and it was finally here! Pronounced man and wife at last!
Destin Beach Photographer
They walked back up the beach amidst cheers from family and friends. What more could you ask for from a wedding day?

After the ceremony we snuck away for some photos with the couple of the day <3

JT was being so sweet, making sure Holly’s dress didn’t accidentally get licked by the waves.

We finally got some gorgeous golden light just before the sun set!

And can I just say – the reception was a blast!!! So many people dancing and just having fun. It was such a great time!

Sparkler exits on the beach are my favorite!!!

This was such a fabulous day and I’m so thrilled that I got to be a part of it. JT and Holly, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to document this day. I wish you all the best in the world!
