Elegant Carillon Beach Wedding | Carillon Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Peach and Pearl Events, along with Florals by the Sea did an absolutely incredible job with this elegant Carillon Beach wedding. Natalie and Liam decided to shake things up and do it a little different (which I love and was all about when Natalie first reached out to me). They ended up having the “wedding” on a Friday, which included the getting ready, formals, ceremony, and a cocktail style reception. That left four hours of relaxing and partying on Saturday, at their gorgeous tented reception. I loved the way this all unfolded, as the two of them were really able to relax and enjoy friends and family on Saturday.

Interview With Wedding Planner Avis Glenister | Santa Rosa Beach Wedding Planner | Shannon Griffin Photography

Interview With Wedding Planner Avis Glenister | Santa Rosa Beach Wedding Planner | Shannon Griffin Photography

Women are incredibly powerful, but we are still human. We spend so much of our emotional labor taking care of others that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. I really want to start highlighting other women business owners. I want to talk about what they do for a living, but I also want to talk about them as people, separate from what they “do”. My goal is to start an interview series with these incredible business owners that really gets to the core of what keeps driving us when we feel we’ve lost control of the wheel.

My first interview is with an incredible wedding planner. I’ve worked with Avis Glenister, of Peach and Pearl Events, a few times and she is one of the top in her field. We sat down to discuss the ins and outs of wedding planning and what exactly goes into owning your own business in the wedding industry. We talk abut the wonderful parts of it, as well as the struggles.

Carillon Beach Wedding Photographer | Casandra and Andy

Being Casandra and Andy's Carillon Beach wedding photographer is something I'll never forget. It was so full of love, warmth, joy, and dancing. Oh...the dancing! Casandra and Andy met during a night out and are really passionate about music and dancing, so much so that they flew in their own DJ from New York. These two planned their beach wedding all the way from Brooklyn New York. Peach and Pearl Events teamed with Myrtie Blue to create a gorgeous color pallet. Brian, of Myrtie Blue, and his team created a masterpiece of florals. The blush and greens mixed so beautifully with the deep purples. They turned the inside of the reception tent into an elegant reception for Casandra and Andy's closest friends and family. I couldn't keep my eyes off of Casandra's incredible cathedral length veil and metallic Prada shoes.

Casandra and Andy were kind enough to send me a little love:

"In one word – Shannon is PHENOMENAL! I live in NYC and therefore planned my wedding long distance in Panama City, FL. Shannon was very easy to work with and extremely patient with my planning questions. She was also super responsive to all of my needs. The day of the wedding, Shannon showed up early and ready to go! She was very relaxed and therefore made me and my family/friends comfortable in front of the camera. She went out of her way to capture beautiful pictures that I will enjoy for a lifetime. I thoroughly recommend her as a photographer for not just weddings, but any and all events! Loved her!"
