I had the pleasure of officiating Shawna and Cole beautiful St George Island wedding ceremony on June 11, 2015. Shawna and I had been emailing for months getting ready for the big day. They were traveling to St George Island so she wanted to make sure everything was set.
To help with their planning process, I arranged for their photographer, Brett Svenson. He took some amazing pictures which you’ll see throughout this post. Check all of the pictures out here: http://www.svensonimages.com/shawnacolewedding
I drove out to St George Island on the day of the wedding and was ready for a beautiful St George Island wedding ceremony out on the beach. Shawna was a beautiful bride- inside and out. The weather was sunny but I could see dark clouds approaching. Fortunately everyone was on time so we could the ceremony before the rain hit. The ceremony then the reception was underneath one of two houses they rented. They had hired Captain Q’s food truck for reception food!
Friends and family gathered around for the ceremony. Shawna’s Dad walked her down the aisle. Cole’s daughter was the flower girl. Their family friend lead everyone in a prayer and I officiated. It was a very nice beach wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony guests went back to the house for the reception while Shawna and Cole stayed on the picture for pictures. They were able to get some pictures in then the storm hit! It started raining and got very windy but that didn’t stop the newlyweds from having a good time. They ran back to the house, grab some food from the food truck, and mingled with guests.
The rain lasted about an hour and fortunately when it was over there was still enough light for them to get more pictures!
