October along the Gulf Coast is almost undeniably one of the most gorgeous times of year. We still enjoy warm days along the beach, yet the sweltering heat has mostly disappeared. This makes for perfect wedding weather!
Destin and Santa Rosa Beach, along 30A, are popular locations for venues for destination beach weddings, especially for folks who live in the South East. There are a variety of accommodations for any sized wedding. Some couples choose to elope with a small, private ceremony on the beach and honeymoon for the rest of their stay. Other couples go all out, renting beach houses for their guests and family members, so everyone can enjoy a beach vacation as well as the wedding ceremony and reception.
The Triple Crown beach house on 30A in Seagrove Beach, Florida was the perfect venue for Mary Hannah and her finance, Chandler. It is a magnificent three story home with a private pool, large lawn, and stunning beach view and access. Triple Crown was able to house Mary Hannah and her family as well as Chandler, serve as a wedding ceremony site on the beach, and host the reception on the lawn with plenty of room to dance and party!
Here are just a few my favorite photos and portraits from that gorgeous October wedding!
