Although they have different alma maters, Mackenzie (UAB) and Collins (Ole Miss) met in college at Hangout Fest!  They both went off to do their own things, reconnected a couple of years later, and the rest is history!

Now living in Seattle, they decided to host their spring wedding in Destin and came out to visit and select their venue in advance.  The Henderson Beach Resort & Spa met the mark with exactly what they were looking for in a venue for their intimate wedding (with around 50 guests)! Finding their ideal venue ultimately led Mackenzie to find and secure us for photography on their big day.  Their late afternoon ceremony on the Grand Lawn lent itself well to sunset wedding photos, as you can see for yourself below!
