Ashley & James

Bride and groom intimate portrait on the beach at sunset at the emerald grande

Ashley & James celebrated their wedding at the Emerald Grande overlooking the Destin Harbor and the Emerald Coast's white sandy beaches. Classic and sweet, Ashley & James were just made for each other.

Ashley's mother and sister helped put the final touches on her wedding dress before her first look with her father. Even if you would prefer to see your spouse-to-be at the alter, relative and bridesmaid first looks are so special, and they flow naturally within the wedding day.

The Emerald Grande's outdoor deck provides a private ceremony view unlike any other in Destin, FL. Views of the gulf mixed with European coastal design create a beautiful luxury coastal experience.

After Ashley & Jame's ceremony we hopped on the Emerald Grande's ferry over to one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The Destin East Jetties offer some of the clearest emerald water I've seen as well as, natural dunes, jetty rocks, and a perfect view of the sunset every time of year. Fun fact: The sun sets over land in the summer and over the gulf in the winter. Because this beach is facing west over the Destin pass rather than south, the sun sets over the water here year round.

Onward to first dances, great food, and good times! Thanks for checking out Ashley & Jame's beautiful day. It was our honor to play a small part in it, and of course we had plenty of fun along the way. We would love to celebrate with you as well! Reach out! We'd love to hear your story. Looking forward to meeting you!
