Elizabeth and Jacob had a rather unconventional beach wedding, instead of a bridesmaids Elizabeth had her friends carry lanterns and named them “lantern maidens”. There was no grooms’ side or brides’ side for guests to choose from, instead everyone joined together and surrounded Jacob and Elizabeth as they exchanged their vows. Honoring her mother’s memory Elizabeth incorporated a photograph of her mother in her flower bouquet. Instead of a guest book Elizabeth created a wish tree where her guests signed pieces of fabric with well wishes that she will stitch together to create a quilt from. They held their reception at the Emerald Grande in Destin, Florida and later took the party to Harry T’s Bar and Club. Everything about this wedding was unconventional and it helped to create one of the most memorable weddings I have photographed in a long time. Congratulations Elizabeth and Jacob!!
