Blake and I were great friends in college, so I loved getting the chance to meet Brittney last year when I was visiting Nashville! A few months later, I was in town again and we did their engagement photos! Right away I knew that Blake + Brittney were a perfect match! The love surrounding them on their wedding day was palpable!
Since Brittney lived in the area for years, they chose to have a Pensacola Beach wedding. It’s still very much summer here in Florida, and daily afternoon rain storms are in full swing! Family and friends prayed and prayed for no rain so that this beach wedding could actually BE a beach wedding! There ended up being a few drizzles (although I was told there was a full on thunderstorm a few miles away), but those rain drops ended up being the best case scenario. The clouds diffused the afternoon sun, allowing us to photograph portraits (instead of delaying them until after the ceremony) in what is usually the harshest light of the day. And the sprinkle chased all of the beach goers away (it was Labor Day weekend!!), which meant an almost completely private ceremony on a very public beach! It couldn’t have been more perfect.
B + B’s wedding reception was held at the beautiful Palafox Wharf, and the night ended with beautiful fireworks and a bubble exit! Scroll on down to see a sneak peek of their wedding day photos, and leave them some love in the comments! <3
Blake + Brittney, we’re so glad we got to celebrate with you and photograph your big day!! We wish you nothing but the best – have an amazing time in Ireland!!
