Real Wedding Wednesday! Amanda & Brandon

Destination weddings. Gorgeous scenery; scary to plan. At least, that's how I feel. I would be terrified to have a destination wedding. But my good friend Amanda did it and it turned out beautifully...
From the bride...

The ceremony was at 7:30pm which was perfect because they say on that Island, during that time, the sun is considered "sweet light" because it's prime time for photographers to get best pictures!

The reception was gorgeous! My two favorite things that I've always always wanted at my wedding was lots of flowers and lots of candles! So the tables were my dream come true.

Having a 35+ people at a beach wedding is a lot of fun. Having my family and all of my favorite friends there was what meant so much and made the day even more perfect. Getting married (no matter how long you've been with the person) is crazy stressful. So having those special people there was great.

What made the day so so so perfect though was just getting married. It's your day. And as cheesy as it sounds, just finally getting married after 5 years of being with somebody; that's a really good feeling.

Ceremony & Reception: Casa Ybel; Sanibel Island, Flordia

Beach brides, beware of bugs. This gorgeous wedding was in the middle of July and it had rained all morning. No seeums were everywhere during pictures and the ceremony. As proof, here's the flower girl...
