Robyn and Cole : Surfisde Resort Wedding : Destin, Florida

In the weeks leading up to Robyn and Cole's wedding I felt so much excitement the couple had about their wedding. Robyn would message me on Instagram saying "hello" and sharing the upcoming events for the big day! I knew without a doubt, this would be a such a fun couple to work with on their wedding day. But what I didn't know yet, was how absolutely GORGEOUS Robyn would be on her wedding day.

For this couple, having a beach wedding was never a question "Cole and I have always had a love for the beach. We love being on the water. Being at the beach is so relaxing, and we love the atmosphere. We thought a beach wedding would be a perfect fit for us! One day we hope we are able to move to the water and start a new life there!"

She admits that the beginning stages of planning a destination wedding was stressful but once she found Surfside Resort as a venue, everything began to fall in to place. "At first I had no idea where to start. I did research on beach weddings, and tons of places popped up in my searches. I was overwhelmed and didn't really know what was best. So, I messaged a girl I went to school with that had recently got married at Surfside Resort. She talked highly of the place and Nicki!  I looked it up and noticed it was top rated one of the best places to get married, and the reviews were awesome. Best decision ever! I couldn't of picked a better place for our wedding!

She went on further to compliment Nicki, of Island Sands Beach Weddings as the planner and coordinator for the big day, "I could go on and on about Nicki! She is absolutely phenomenal! I could tell she loves what she does for a living. She is very caring and goes out of her way to make sure that your day is everything you dreamed of and more. I was so excited to finally meet Nicki. I swear I think I hugged her a million times on the day of the wedding . It was nothing short of perfect! My heart was so overwhelmed of joy. I love her dearly! She holds a special place in my heart for making my dream wedding come true."

Robyn, Cole and I began as strangers on their wedding day besides a few phone calls and messages but I think we left that day as friends. Of course since Robyn was so open about her planning process and review of the day, I couldn't help but ask why she chose me as her photographer. Her response nearly brought me to tears. " I loved your style! Nicki gave me many options but you stood out the most to me. The way you capture images is so beautiful. You capture all the precious moments that every bride wants to look back on. You also made it super fun, so I was so happy to have you with us on our special day! You will also always have a special place in our heart. You gave us gorgeous pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime!"

Thank you Robyn and Cole, as well as Nicki for a wonderful day!
