Hilton Garden Inn Fort Walton Beach | D + D | Florida Wedding

It’s been a wonderful experience seeing Dakota and Darren through their wedding experience. We did their engagement photos and when we all saw we were a great fit for each other, Dalton Young Weddings was entrusted with handling their wedding videography. They had a beautiful beach wedding ceremony with an indoor reception afterward. 

Although it did rain, the rain had the courtesy to go around us and let this couple and their guests enjoy their beautiful day. Of course, we doubt anything could have ruined their wedding given how they were all smiles and laughter throughout the event. 

In her vows, Dakota read from the popular ‘love is kind’ passage from the book of Corinthians. We may have heard it many times before, but she spoke it with such sincerity and promise it felt like it was the first time we were hearing it all over again. 

Dakota’s dress particularly stood out for its unique design, a perfect blend of casual and elegant to match her warm and welcoming personality. Breaking from tradition, Darren also went with a casual look with a striped short sleeve shirt and shorts, we thought it was a perfect fit. Darren was completely enamored with his bride and adorably swapped some of the words from his vows because he got lost in Dakota’s eyes at the altar. 

They had a lovely reception at the Hilton Garden Inn surrounded by their friends and family. Many people turned up for their wedding and their friends gave really heartwarming toasts. As the evening progressed, the dance floor lit up with lots of excitement and energy as they and their guests celebrated the beginning of this new chapter together. 

Dakota and Darren have an easy and fun-loving attitude and were a delight to work with. They have such as cool vibe and their personality stood out in their wedding design, theme, and even the attitude of their guests who freely showed up in casual beachwear at their wedding.
