Today’s wedding is magic. There really is no other way to say it. It’s positively beautiful, filled with charming DIY touches that would make any bride swoon, a style that is as elegant as it is real, a bride and groom that are literally glowing. Photographed by the forever talented Meg Baisden, this wedding is one that you will fall completely and madly in love with…

From the absolutely lovely bride, Laurin…

Kenny and I began dating in high school when we were 16.  We dated throughout college and got engaged during Kenny’s third year of medical school.  Given our history, it seemed like an obvious to get married in our hometown.  After talking about it, we opted to do something we had never talked about – a destination wedding!  We felt like it would be a smaller, more relaxed affair – something that was important to us.

We decided upon Rosemary Beach, a beautiful and tiny beach town in Florida with European inspired architecture.  It has the most charming main street- all kinds of quaint, little shops and restaurants.  We also chose it because it’s close to a beach we have visited on family vacations.  (Little did we know when planning our wedding, we would be moving to Florida a month after we would be married there!)  Rosemary Beach lent the perfect atmosphere for the kind of wedding we wanted – chic, yet relaxed, sophisticated, yet inviting.  It was important that the wedding felt like “us.”
