30A Wedding Photographer for all humans in love 



Mainsail Resort | Destin Wedding Photographer

Dak & Alex celebrated their wedding with their closest friends and family at Mainsail Resort! The resort is right in Miramar Beach and is the perfect location for a destination beach wedding!

Alex shared a super special moment before the ceremony with her mom, it had everyone emotional. Right before we went down to the beach, we had a few moments to grab some styled bridals and a few candid moments of Alex doing her finishing touches.

One of the best parts of beach weddings in my opinion is that shoes are always optional! Especially if you’re the couple getting married! What better way to not have to worry about heals or new shoes that might give you blisters! Have the beach wedding and strut down the aisle shoeless!! You will NOT regret it! There’s even cute ankle jewelry you can find on Etsy if you want to add a little something!

Anyways, after Dak and Alex’s beautiful ceremony we grabbed some shots with their friends and family, some portraits of the two of them and got ready to dance the night away! Their sparkler exit was a perfect way to end the night. It was the most perfect night at the Mainsail Resort!

Stay up to date with all the love stories I get to be apart of on my site!
