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.

Is an Intimate Wedding Right for You | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

When I began photographing weddings 12 years ago they were completely different. Wedding magazines had been around for a while, but wedding blogs were a newer thing. Pinterest wasn’t a thing. You would cut out photographs and tips from magazines and put them into a folder. Now, we have the internet and social media at our fingertips. This is a wonderful thing, but it can also be overwhelming and make some couples obsessive.

While details are an important part of your wedding day, they are certainly not what it’s about or what your guests will take away from the day.

Married Under an Oak Tree in Eden Gardens State Park | Santa Rosa Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Adrienne and Wes had originally planned to have their wedding somewhere else, but Eden Gardens State Park stole their hearts. It was also easier for more family members to come if they had it locally. One of my favorite details is Adrienne using her grandmother’s dress as part of her reception display. It was such a special touch and a great way to honor her.
