I can’t say enough about Sydney and Trey’s wedding in Destin last month. The stars seriously aligned for this one… from them, to their wedding party, to their family and friends, to the beach and the weather we had. It all came together for a perfect beach wedding in Destin at the Jade East.
If there was ever proof that having a first look does not take away the feeling of seeing the love of your life walking toward you down, the aisle, this wedding is proof. Sydney and Trey had the sweetest first look where they read the vows they wrote to each other for just each other to hear, then later as Sydney walked down the aisle toward Trey, he couldn’t hold the tears back and I don’t think there was a dry eye as we all watched. It was so sweet.
Enjoy Sydney and Trey’s recap of their wedding day!
What made you choose your venue?
“Trey and I both always wanted to get married at the beach! We also got engaged on the beach so it’s special to us.”
“For my something new, I had the dress, of course, and my earrings. They were crystal and so pretty. I wore my nana’s watch for my something borrowed because she is no longer with us, but I wanted something of hers included. I also had a handkerchief that was my papa’s before he passed away. That was very special to me to be able to include my grandparents that have passed away.”
“The girls that were in my wedding party are all special to me. I had my three best friends, my cousin who is my oldest friend, and my new sister in law! The girls picked their dresses because i wanted the to be able to show who they are and why i love them. Also i wanted them to be comfortable.”
What were some of your favorite memories from your wedding day?
“My parents and My aunts and cousins all were there for me and helped make the day special. They all did so much for me to make my day go good. I also loved having a first look with Trey. We got to have a brief intimate moment. It was great because we were so busy leading up to the wedding i hadn’t spent time with just him.”
What feel did you want your wedding to have?
“I just went with pastel colors because i love lavender! I wanted it to be elegant, even at the beach!”
What is one of your sweetest memories from your wedding day?
“When I came down the aisle and saw Trey crying and being happy! I just felt lots of love all around.”
“Looks like we made it by Shania Twain was our First Dance song. We picked it because we felt it was a great match for our relationship. And I grew up listening to and loving Shania.”
Advice for future Brides:
