Katelyn & Jonathan's wedding was simply gorgeous! They were married on the Rooftop Terrace at the Henderson Resort and Spa in Destin, and we had the privilege of photographing their big day! What made it extra special for us is that they are our friends. My husband and I often photograph weddings together, we joke that it's our date night some times, and the fact that we were able to celebrate our friends marriage with other friends around and be a part of the big day made it even more perfect.
Katelyn and her bridesmaids started their day at the Henderson's Salamander Spa before heading to a beautiful room with a lovely beach view. I love that everything they needed was on site and they were able to celebrate and relax all day (except for when Katelyn had to spend some time searching the resort for her phone that had been misplaced in a spa bathrobe, oops...). While the attendants got ready, room service delivered some delicious treats, and Katelyn's makeup and hair artists arrived.
The guys of course spent more than a little time goofing off during their photos, I adore creating wedding photos where you can truly see the personalities of the groom and groomsmen.
The wedding ceremony on the Henderson Resort's spectacular Rooftop Terrace was just perfect, we were able to watch the sun sink low and the sky was just gorgeous. The rounded arbor by Bella Flora 30A was stunning, and the florals by Forget Me Knot were so elegant. Following the ceremony we were took photos on the terrace as well as around the resort before heading to the beach for some really sweet wedding photography moments.
The Destin Henderson Beach Resort catered the reception which was held in the ballroom. It was a very elegant reception filled with character and silly touches by the couple and wedding party. I especially liked the Harry Potter themed details throughout the evening. Shawn from BBOY Productions kept everyone dancing throughout the evening as well as providing the music for the ceremony and social hour. Of course with all of our friends there we had to get a group photo. Throughout the day Sherri of Destin to Wed did a fabulous job and kept everything flowing smoothly. It was a truly beautiful Destin wedding.
