Navarre Beach, Florida Wedding- Dan & Lindsey

I’ve known Lindsey for almost 10 years (one of my first college roommates), so when she asked me to photograph her and Dan's destination Navarre Beach Wedding i couldn’t wait to be a part of it and also fully prepared to cry. 

They stayed in the most beautiful home the owners sometimes call “the wedding house”  the Sandcastle by the Sea, sleeps 23 people and 4 floors.. don’t worry there is an elevator. ;) just over the road is the ocean where they had their ceremony right next to the water. perfection. 

a warm overcast Florida day, her grandparents were the ring bearer and flower girl, family sang and played guitar and her mom and step-dad gave her away. They all pitched in to make their day extra special. 

I was welcomed by their close friends and family in my few days with them,  and was able to see a bigger glimpse of the bride and groom together. I have been lucky enough to meet Dan a few times before, but knowing Lindsey for so long of course i love to just watch how they love. (i love love.. if i haven’t mentioned that lately) so i watched as they interacted, spoke to one another and what a good sport he was for getting his photograph taken all day their wedding day… and then for the trash the dress session. I knew he was going to take good care of her and not just appreciate but adore all of the things that make her unique. They truly cherish those things about one another.

I feel so honored to be able to capture their lovely day along with David Youso, who was their videographer. As much as i know they would’ve loved many more friends and family there, an intimate ceremony on one of her favorite beaches seemed fitting and absolutely lovely. 

Congratulations Dan and Lindsey. Not only am i glad i could be there to support you and see your commitment to one another. I’m so glad to get to know your families a little better and spend time with you both. I love you Lindsey. Will be praying for your marriage together!
