Who doesn’t love a wedding at the beach? Melissa and Danny, along with their families and friends, all traveled to Florida, for the sweetest wedding & celebration after.

Danny and his guys wore ties from The Tie Bar. Their rings come from Cresalia Jewelers, San Francisco, California. Florals and equipment rentals were provided by Supposey in Pensacola, Florida. Their ceremony was to take place under the Wedding Tree at Eden Garden State Park, however the rain had other plans! After a little reevaluation by their coordinator Katy from Coastal Coordinating, they were married in an intimate ceremony surrounded by more love than anyone could hope for. It was the most special time! Afterwards, the rain cleared and we were able to take portraits under the beautiful tree that brought them to this venue. The reception immediately following the ceremony was held at A Stone’s Throw in Miramar Beach, Florida. The meal was catered by Big Red Grill in Destin, and the wedding cake from Donut Hole in Santa Rosa Beach, with other deserts from Dewey Destin’s Snowballs in Destin. After a quick portrait session on the beach at sunset, Melissa and Danny spent the night dancing and celebrating with their guests, with music provided by their friend, Nick Miller. And to cap the night off, they all stopped by Melissa & Danny’s super fun photo booth, Southern Style Photo Booths, out of Nashville, Tennessee, to create a one-of-a-kind memory to remember the day! What a memorable, beautiful, and unique day, for a lovely couple. Congratulations, Melissa and Danny, we wish you the best!
