If Elaina didn't already have (what Steven would call) a "Bad-A$$" job, working as an Adjunct Instructor at Saint Louis University, I would have recommended she become a wedding planner. She planned the entire wedding, from a distance, in three months... and her day of details were well thought out and concise. Go Elaina!!
This gorgeous sunset wedding was on November 14, 2015 at the Beach House in Sandestin. Close friends and family made the trip from Missouri to Florida to accompany Matt and Elaina on their big day! The ceremony (officiated by a close friend) began just as the sun was nearing the horizon. As you'll see in these images, Sunsets on the Emerald Coast create the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony.
Following the ceremony, the party went upstairs to The Sky Room for cocktail hour, dinner, toasts, and dancing!! The toasts are generally one of my favorite events of the day, and for Matt and Elaina's wedding, the best man, maid of honor, and father of the bride did not disappoint! The toasts were full or fun, anecdotal memories that really highlighted the love they had for this couple. Following dessert DJ Will turned on the music and kept the dance floor going all night!
