Florida Trip: Shannon and Parker

The second wedding of our Florida trip was Shannon and Parker! We were so excited to photograph their wedding and be a part of their big day in Shannon's hometown, Ft. Walton. Adam and I watched the weather all week and were a little nervous as it kept predicting storms, but the day was incredibly beautiful with not a drop of rain!! A perfect wedding day!

Shannon looked amazing! We got several really amazing shots of her alone. Here are a couple of favorites:

Shannon and Parker opted to see each other before the ceremony - I'm always excited when couples choose this as it gives us more time for shots of the two of them together.

In the narthex of the church - the window light was beautiful!

The church had these awesome red doors! So great!

A couple other favorites of the two of them:

Shannon and Parker's friends and family were all so great and welcoming! Not to mention fun . . .

Everything at the church was very elegant - from the decor to the simple, traditional service.

I love this moment that Adam caught just before Shannon's dad walked her down the aisle:

The new Mr. and Mrs.!!!

Their reception was at Eglin Air Force Base. I don't think I've ever actually been on a Base before so I was excited to see what all was on the other side of the gate! And, turns out, it was a beautiful place to shoot! Check out this amazing tree:

The reception was so much fun, with lots of dancing and celebrating.

And to top the night off, Shannon was serenaded with a lovely rendition of "You've Lost that Loving Feeling". It was awesome!

Congratulations to Shannon and Parker and thanks so much for letting us be a part of your big day!
