Lafayette Park Destination Wedding

Apalachicola Florida

Sarah and Charles

While I was on my Colorado road trip last summer, I got a call from Charles inquiring about his Lafayette Park destination wedding in Apalachicola Florida. Even though we were total strangers, our conversation immediately fell into a relaxed cadence, as if we had been longtime friends. The kind who joke inappropriately. By the time we hung up, I knew two things…1. This was going to be an awesome wedding and 2. I should work on my verbal filters.

Apalachicola Wedding

Meeting Sarah was no different. We spent a few hours on Skype sipping wine and swapping neurotic cat stories. I’m not sure if we talked about wedding photography but we had a pretty good time. Over the next few months, I got to know these former Peace Corps members a little better when they visited Florida and I visited DC. It’s not fair that such funny, intelligent, selfless, beautiful people should also be creative but life is full of crap like that. I learned that Sarah crafted all the reception table centerpieces out of oyster shells and she made Charles wedding band from an actual quarter. You can still read the word Liberty on the side! I was already stoked about their wedding but I did a little happy dance when I saw how perfectly everything came together. It started with a shrimp boil welcome party under a giant white tent at Charles’s childhood home.  The ceremony took place under the gazebo at Lafayette Park in Apalachicola and the reception was at the Studio Gallery downtown. The following morning, all party going survivors were treated to a brunch at the Gibson Inn. It was quite a weekend.

I go a little bit nuts when it comes to details and this wedding was packed full of them. A live band, gorgeous flowers, candles, and crafty little touches were surrounded by coastal oil paintings and a bevy of well-wishers that traveled thousands of miles to be there. Bridesmaids gifts were swede earrings from a favorite art gallery. Trimmings from grandma’s lace wedding gown was tacked into Sarah’s dress. Honeycomb invitations blended fabulously with bee-themed cakes. And my favorite part of all…glittered ankle boots and handmade fascinator. Be still my beating heart.
