Sandbridge Wedding at Hawaiian Palace
Abbey & Chris had their beach wedding at a oceanfront home in Sandbridge called the “Hawaiian Palace.” Having your ceremony and reception at a Sandbridge home is such a great idea! You can have a very flexible and relaxed timeline, have your party go until the wee hours of the night and not have to worry about cleanup on the day of your wedding. I loved the color and decor that Abbey picked out for her wedding. She had mint as her primary wedding color and of course had a beachy theme to include seashells as well. We were a little worried about the weather since the day called for rain. Wouldn’t you know that the rain stopped minutes before the ceremony! A beautiful rainbow appeared right before the bride walked down the aisle with her dad. Abbey and Chris exchanged their vows on the beach and we took all of the formal portraits of the family and wedding party shortly after. It actually turned out to be a beautiful summer day, perfect for a beach wedding! We got some gorgeous photos of the bride and groom on the beach as well. After all the photos, we continued the festivities with the grand introductions and went right into the first dance. The celebration continued with dinner followed by heart felt toasts from the Best Man and the Maid of Honor. Instead of the traditional wedding cake, Abbey & Chris had cupcakes for all their guests and a mini cake for them to enjoy. After the cake cutting the party really took off! The dance floor was packed all night and everyone was dancing and singing. I had so much fun and was able to get so many fun party photos!
Congrats Abbey & Chris! 🙂
