Choosing Our Destin-ation

Growing up, my family had a special vacation spot we'd retreat to every few months. For us, that perfect getaway was Destin, Florida. Nowadays I just can't get enough of the white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. For those of you who've never heard of Destin, it's a charming little beach town so quaint Hollywood even used its neighboring town in the film "The Truman Show" to depict picture perfect suburbia. The first time Justin and I visited Destin together was in high school, just after we started dating. Thankfully Justin and my little brother were connected at the hip so I wasn't the only one begging my parents to let him tag along. I'll never forget the first time we walked on the beach together. When college came around and the challenge of a long distance relationship took shape, we'd always meet halfway between our schools, in Destin. It was the town that kept us together for so many years. So when the question of where to get married arose, there was really only one answer. We always wanted to have a destination wedding, where our friends and family would come together for a week of events, ending with the big day. Destin, which sits 7 hours from our hometown, was the only choice. The Knot even named it one of the top wedding destinations in the country, so you can imagine our excitement to share this special place with all of our loved ones!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing pictures from all of the events that took place leading up to the big day. xo
