Andrea & Tony’s wedding day took place at a beautiful Resort in  Sandestin, Florida and despite the rainy weather their wedding was full of vibrance and joy. You might think that rain on a destination wedding day would bring a bride to tears, but not Andrea. She and Tony never even gave the rain a second though, they were so focused on what the day was really about, the beginning of their lives together as husband and wife. Andrea was stunning, even her sweet sister couldn’t hold back the tears as she zipped Andrea’s dress in complete awe of what this day meant for her sister. After all the preparations we navigated through the rain to the first look location, where Tony saw his bride for the first time. They couldn’t stop grinning, after lots of hugs and sweet words in true Andrea & Tony fashion they gave each other a fist bump. These two are so genuine, there is no act, just transparency with one another and it’s my prayer that the transparency they have with each other right now only grows and strengthens their marriage. After the I do’s were complete Mr. & Mrs. Yelk were finally introduced as husband and wife and the party got underway. Their family knows how to celebrate and it was so much fun to capture the love, laughs, tears and incredible dance moves throughout their evening. Andrea & Tony, your friendship and marriage have been a blessing to me, it was a true honor to document this monumental day in your lives, thank you for sharing your family, friends and love with me. Congrats to you both and I hope you enjoy these images for years to come.
