01 Jul ebony + travis: joined. a destin beach wedding.
Ebony and Travis are the kind of people that the world needs more of. They love with abandon and don’t care who’s watching. They fill their cups full and live life as if there’s no tomorrow.
They just make their own world, and everyone is so happy in it.
Ebony and Travis tied the knot in Destin, on sun-soaked sand with the sound of crashing waves behind them. They pledged their lives and love to each other, cried tears of joy, then ran off together down the beach in a euphoric display of happiness. Their day was a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple. Weather, circumstance, and fate all came together to obey their every whim, and no couple deserved it more.
Ebony and Travis chose to see each other before the ceremony, and I’m so glad that they did! Not only did they have the sweetest First Look ever, but we got the chance to schedule 2 hours for portraits while roaming Destin for the perfect photographs!
I adore the excitement on Travis’ face when he saw Ebony for the first time.
Because they had a destination wedding, we wanted to make sure we captured some of the tropical beachiness of Destin, and that included lots of Spanish Moss! It’s always been a dream of mine to capture a bride and groom underneath a canopy dripping with the stuff. I was in heaven!
Ebony, you are stunning. That is all.
Travis knows how to work the camera too!
My favorite photo from the entire day:
The bridal party was so much fun, and completely dedicated to Ebony and Travis!
Look at that pure joy that Ed captured on Ebony’s face! Sigh.
Because we did all of our photos before the ceremony, we had time afterwards for just a few more on the beach in amazing sunset light, right before the sun sank below the sea.
Yes. They are this adorable ALL the time!!
Ed took my favorite reception photos. These two are his. Grrrr. Hate it when that happens! 😉
Ebony and Travis, thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for not being afraid to be in love. Thank you for making this day all about you, and for allowing us to be a part of it. It was truly an honor!
