Pensacola Beach Wedding – Laura and Brandon

Pensacola Beach Wedding – A gorgeous September evening

September is known for being hot here on the emerald coast but this September evening was perfect in every way. Laura and Brandon’s Pensacola Beach wedding faced a few obstacles (thanks Covid) but family and friends pulled together to make it remarkable in every way.

The day started with hair and makeup at the rental house in Pensacola Beach. Laura relaxed while Erin styled her hair and Alexis applied her makeup. Her group of friends gathered around helping to steam dresses and making sure Laura had everything she needed.

Brandon was able to take it easy and spend time with family while Laura was getting ready. After they were both dressed (and Laura’s dad saw her) Brandon got in position to see his bride all ready for the first time. It was beautiful to see how everyone gave them their space for the first look and the result was a super intimate, private moment which is always needed on a wedding day. The couple shared their excitement with each other and then invited everyone out on the deck for a pre-ceremony photo sesh!

One of the best moments of any wedding (for me anyway) is to see the father of the bride sneak a peek at his daughter as he walks her down the aisle. Laura’s dad certainly didn’t disappoint and the tears continued to flow through the ceremony. Laura and Brandon said “I Do”, shared a kiss, and danced their way back up the aisle.

One of the perks of a Pensacola Beach wedding is the chance to have stretches of sand all to yourself and this location was prime for a bit of solitude. Laura and Brandon kissed, cuddled, and danced in the glowing sunset before heading back to the deck for a private dinner with their guests.

Their crew moved all the ceremony decor to the beach house deck and the result was stunning. After dinner they went underneath the house and danced to live music as the evening came to a perfect end.
