A Perfect Beach Wedding......

Really, this should be titled "It takes a village" because everyone had to pitch in to have this perfect beach wedding! The MOB, my sister Sandi, arrived with a van full of goodies she had been working on for months...welcome buckets, table decorations, ties, dyed shoes, shawls, bubble guns, cake topper, even the Bride's dress! A few days before the wedding we met with the event coordinator, the caterer, the cake and flower department, in between trips to the airport. One friend was the photographer, special friends hosted a luncheon and arranged the bouquets, the minister was Brooke's Uncle, Haley helped coordinate the actual wedding, others helped decorate for the reception...and I won't mention who cut palm trees around the property because she is probably on the surveillance cameras!














Brooke's Dad showed up to walk her down the aisle and we were all smiles as the sun set over Orange Beach, Alabama. Brooke looked beautiful, Brad was nervous, everyone had a good time at the reception, and Sandi was so proud!

Thank you for these lovely photos. I'm a friend of Sandi's from California and have been following the plans for months. Love seeing how it all came together. How fortunate to have the "village" to help her!

Looks like it turned out to be an enchanting day--I know it took a lot of teamwork to make such a special day happen. I'm looking forward to helping my sister and niece the next few weeks before their wedding at the end of May. Sandi was blessed to have you by her side!
