Alyssa + Alec’s Destination Beach Wedding in Destin, Florida

This elegant and timeless beach wedding was a dream come true for Alyssa + Alec. Although the couple themselves are from Indiana, they’ve always hoped to get married somewhere sunshiny and warm. The beach scene is definitely a bit different from the majority of the Midwest.

Destin is one of my favorite areas in Florida for a destination wedding. This couple chose to have a sunset ceremony at Henderson Beach State Park. This beach was quiet and is perfect for a small wedding or elopement. After their ceremony, all of their guests hung out at the Pavillion for dinner and dancing. As a destination photographer, it was important to me to do some location scouting and find the best areas around Destin for their portraits. While there were a lot of options outside of the State Park, it’s hard to beat that beautiful view of the beachfront.

Their wedding planner, Ashia, with Forever I Do Weddings, did an incredible job of keeping the day moving smoothly, which allowed the bride and groom, and their guests to enjoy the day even more! Alyssa and Alec are such joyful people and share a beautiful love.
