The Couple 

Frances + Justin

Love Story 

“We met in college 5 years ago through mutual friends and have been inseparable ever since. Our first date was an Alabama basketball game. The date ended up being 14 hours long because we instantly clicked and didn’t want it to end. Aside from my wedding day, it was one of the best days I’ve ever had. I instantly knew I could spend the rest of my life with him. The proposal didn’t go as originally planned. We were going to go to a friend’s wedding in Santorini, Greece and he was going to pop the question on a sunset cruise or on one of the seaside cliffs but Covid derailed our plans. We ended up going to his parents beach house near Destin, FL for a week long vacation. The second full day we were there and he had a beach picnic proposal scheduled for sunset. Right around 5:00 PM a big line of thunderstorms rolled in but luckily the lady he hired to organize the picnic had access to an incredible covered rooftop terrace in the heart of Seaside in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. It turned out to be even better than the beach proposal and he also had my sister and best friend fly down to surprise me. They hid on the terrace and disguised themselves as photographers with blonde wigs. It was such a special night that I won’t forget.”

The Wedding

“Frances and Justin are a paradox – Frances being tiny with a graceful and classic beauty and Justin coming in at 6’8” with a quiet, LARGE presence. Their wedding was intimate and family only inside of a bubble, literally. The lighting inside the ceremony tent was lovely and the emotions were so full of joy. Frances and Justin didn’t want anything elaborate, just a special moment shared with their family. The only request was the resident resort dog, Kitty, who has quite a following on instagram, to make an appearance for a photo.”
