Devin and Eddie were married at the bride’s grandparent’s home in St. George Island, Fla. on August 3. “I have always known it was where I wanted to get married,” she said. “My family has owned it my entire life. It is my absolute favorite place in the world. There was nowhere else I would rather have been on my wedding day.” The bride wore a flower embroidered tulle wedding gown with an illusion back and capped sleeved, accessorized with a headband in her short pixie hair, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a bow tie. “After a ridiculous, rainy summer, somehow it turned out to be clear, breezy, and not too humid!” she said. “I was waiting in my room while all of our guests were arriving, and I could see everything from my second-story vantage point. I was peeking through the curtains, along with my flower girl and maid of honor, when I saw my now-husband walking down the aisle with his best man. I couldn’t even see his face because his back was to me. Somehow, it finally felt real.” They wed before 85 along the shores of the Gulf Coast. Fun fact: ceremony programs were shaped like seashells. What did the newlyweds do after they were pronounced husband and wife? Jump for joy! Literally. Famous Apalachicola oysters were served and cocktails were displayed in a canoe. Koozies served double-duty as favors! Tables were decorated with striped linens, luscious centerpieces filled with tulips, ranunculuses, and kale surrounded by starfish and sand dollars. “Our cake was beautiful AND delicious!” Devin said.
