A Timeless Seaside Wedding | Angie & Mike

We met this fun couple last spring when we shot their engagement portraits (you can see those here), so we already knew their wedding would be fantastic. We were absolutely thrilled, though, when it turned out to be even more fabulous than we ever anticipated. But we weren’t the only ones to fall in love with this classic Seaside wedding. Not one, but two industry publications chose to feature this beautiful day: wedding blog Borrowed and Blue, and this fall’s print edition of The Knot magazine.

Pure 7 Studios Seaside Wedding Angie and Mike

When you see the photos from Angie & Mike’s sweet rustic Seaside wedding, you’ll understand why it was so irresistible.

Jennifer & Jimmy’s Rosemary Beach, FL wedding was a sheer pleasure for our entire team (Ryan, Lindsey, & Alan) to photograph and film. From our initial contact with them in March of last year, to their engagement session in Draper Lake in April, we just loved interacting with, photographing and filming them. Their planner, Jennifer Fisher of It’s A Shore Thing Wedding & Event Planning, did such a wonderful job of dotting every ‘i’ and crossing every ‘t’ and provided a seamless execution of yet another beautiful Rosemary Beach wedding. The team of vendors Jennifer helped them select (please contact It’s A Shore Thing for information on their vendor team) was excellent, and we had a blast collaborating with each and every one of them. They even had a Caricature Artist providing caricatures of the bridal party and guests – so cool!

This wedding came on the heels of Ryan’s indescribable week-long experience at Johnathan Canlas‘s Film Is Not Dead Workshop.  He was truly re-inspired for his love of all things film (and Johnathan’s mentality when it comes to shooting this way), so all of the images we’ve chosen to feature below were from Ryan’s Contax 645 film camera (using Fujicolor Pro 400H).  This is only one of the several film cameras Ryan’s enjoyed photographing our weddings on the past several years, and the film for this particular destination wedding was processed by the amazing FIND Lab in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Alan had the pleasure of providing the wedding videos for Jennifer & Jimmy, and you’ll find their ‘Cinematic Wedding Highlights Film’ (something included in all of of our wedding videography collections) at the bottom of this post.

Without further adieu, we hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their big day!  ~Erica

Lauren & Trey’s Seaside Beach Wedding

When Jennifer {“Jen2”} from It’s a Shore Thing popped in one afternoon with Lauren to chat about the possibility of us photographing her upcoming Seaside Chapel wedding, we spent the next couple hours giddy with excitement after getting to know this sweet girl from Arkansas.  Not only do we love Seaside weddings, we also love a bride who we immediately click with.  They had spent the day talking flowers and food and cake and all-things wedding, so by the time they got to us, we were like, “Helloooo, let’s have this amazing wedding tomorrow!”  Jen the wedding planner basically thought we had lost our marbles {which sometimes happens when we get giddy with excitement; especially that Erica – she even starts climbing walls and running laps around the studio sometimes}, so we decided we put on our patient pants and wait until April rolled around for Lauren & Trey’s pretty wedding. And boy, oh boy, was it ever pretty!

We arrived to find our gorgeous bride getting dolled up by the oh-so-talented Johnathan Doria and Deana Kale, and even stumbled across all of Lauren’s wicked-fun details.  A cute weekend welcome packet, a gorgeous old Bible wrapped in ribbon for the sweet ring bearer to tote down the aisle, and a pair of sparkly pumps that made our little cameras do a slight backflip.  UH-dorable.  Oh, and did we mention the dress?   Sigh.  Being a wedding photographer is really hard sometimes.

We moseyed on over to the pretty white chapel for their sweet nuptials, then on to the drool-worthy {also known as reallydarnpretty} Lyceum Lawn reception, where we were ecstatic to find lawn games (hi, have you heard of life-sized Jenga?  Yeah, us either and it was pretty great), more sparkles, a chevron cake, and a whole night’s worth of boogie-down tunes.  Oh!  There was also a very fabulous church pew awaiting our arrival for those amazing beach sunset photos . . . all Lauren’s idea!  (We failed to mention that being a 30A wedding photographer is also really hard sometimes.)

Ever so grateful for the AMAZING team of wedding professionals that worked so hard to bring this gorgeous day together for two special people!

Sarah & Nick | by Pure7, Rosemary Beach Wedding Photographers

When we first met Sarah & Nick, we were like, “OH!  Yes! They are SO us!”.  They love great music, are super-ridiculously cute together, and just generally chill, fun, all-around great people {are you chill and awesome and fun, too?  because we would love to meet you if so!}.  And then when we discovered the amazing team of wedding pros they were working with, our excitement levels were almost too much to bear!  The photos we captured of these two gorgeous lovebirds is proof of just how amazing their day really was!

It’s couples like this that make us love being wedding photographers and being able to be Rosemary Beach wedding photographers makes it even more special.

Sarah opted to dress her sweet girls {and no, really, they were all so super-sweet and fun we almost had to pinch ourselves a few times} in rented bridesmaids dresses {whaaaa?  you can do that now?}.  Yes, you can totally rent your bridesmaids dresses!  Who knew?   And the boys, well, they were lookin’ super-fly in their vest-only-attire {hello, awesome trend alert!}.  Both clothing options were well-suited for what transpired later in the evening {there may have been some acrobatics involved on that dance floor}.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day ~ everything from the drop-dead gorgeous and Pinterest-worthy florals, to the block-rockin’ beats from the DJ, to Nick’s award-winning first sighting of his beautiful bride . . . it basically rocked our striped socks off {Ryan thinks  striped socks are hot.  Ryan is weird}.  Oh, and the perfect sunset – we arranged that, too.  It’s just what we do.

claire & matt are one of the sweetest couples we’ve had the joy of photographing. and SO in love, as you can tell by the adoring glances in their images. we’ve also loved getting to know claire’s wonderful mother, lori, over the past few months while working with her to on claire & matt’s stunning wedding album and lori’s beautiful parent album. i will let the images below speak for themselves, but it goes without saying that the It’s A Shore Thing team rocked this wedding out and it was STUNNING. every last detail was executed flawlessly, and the entire day went off without a hitch. love it when that happens! thank you to all of the wonderful vendors who came together and gave their all to give c+m the day of their dreams.

p.s. be sure to be on the lookout for the upcoming ‘best in destin’ issue of destin magazine, in which this wedding will be featured!
