Sandestin Bayview Terrace – Riley and Darrell have a classic modern American love story – their first week of college turned out to be the first week of their lives together. Darrell was initially afraid to ask Riley out to their freshman homecoming. But when he did, it turned out to be one of the most life-changing decisions of his life. It ended up in a romantic destination wedding that we gladly got to shoot.
They had a lovely ceremony on the Bayview Terrace with panoramic views of the water behind them. it looked very romantic. We also got some stunning shots of them strolling along the lawns of the Sandestin. Golf and Beach Resort in between their ceremony and reception. Their wedding decor featured soft pinks and whites, giving a calm and easy-going atmosphere like the couple and their guests.
Darrell’s best friend had some touching words for him at their reception – he is a caring and reliable man who we don’t doubt will make an excellent husband. Their personalities complement each other; Riley’s friend noted that she inspired all those around her – even pushing Darrell’s brother harder than he does.
Perhaps one of the most amazing things about this wedding was that none of their guests lived there, but they all showed up anyway to celebrate Riley and Darrell. They’re kind people who radiate warmth and are dearly loved by their friends and family. Toward the end of the night, in the Linkside Ballroom, they had heartwarming dances with their parents. Riley and Darrell were a fantastic couple to work with.
