Dauphin Island Wedding – Eliott & Sommer

What a fun turn of events this wedding was! Sommer photographed my cousin’s wedding several years ago at this exact location, and I was part of the bridal party for her wedding. It was such an honor to be Sommer and Eliott’s wedding photographer! Sommer and I lived together when I was in college and I’m thankful for the friendship she has given me these past few years. I’m so thankful she and Eliott found each other, and I look forward to “growing old” together! :)

Sommer planned a beautiful beach wedding, and the day could not have been more perfect! The beach house her family had was a lovely place to get ready. bride getting readybride wearing robeAuburnALPhotographer-1AuburnALPhotographer-3 copyBlossoms by Bev did a great job with her pink rose bouquet!
