Okay, Rachel + Council’s sunrise Navarre Beach wedding was definitely in my top five favorites of 2017. Rachel had this Pride and Prejudice vision for her first look moment, and I totally wanted to make that happen! A few things went crazy before we got to this moment, LOL. We had a few hurricanes before their big day, which led to closed roads, ridiculous winds, and daylight savings time ending (or starting, I’m 25 and still don’t understand the time hopping concept haha). You could tell Rachel and Council were quite tired from arranging their reception space the evening before and coming up with a back up ceremony space due to the incredible waves and wind happening gulfside. When I got there at 5am, we quickly realized the sun wasn’t set to come up until 6:50am- so we drove around, covering the rear view mirror so Council couldn’t see his bride, and got McDonalds hash browns and coffee. Once dawn peaked, magic happened. And the most incredible BREAKFAST RECEPTION followed after a sweet ceremony sound side. Surrounded by family and a ton of friends from all over the globe, we partied and ate bacon and mini cheesecakes. Check out some of my favorite moments from their wedding day.
