This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Johnna and Stephen. The ceremony was held at WaterColor Inn in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and reception at WaterColor Inn, Fish Out of Water, Santa Rosa Beach, FL.
Early in the wedding planning process, the couple knew they wanted an intimate, relaxed fall wedding that doubled as an escape from their busy Chicago area lives. The destination search started in Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head, South Carolina but when they discovered WaterColor Inn in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, the search was over. The coastal decor, white sandy beaches, top chefs, and luxury accommodations complemented their wedding vision.
Days before the wedding, their guests from Illinois, Texas, Florida, Ohio and Manchester, England started to arrive at WaterColor Inn. What was once a zero percent chance of rain evolved into a seventy percent chance threatening the ceremony and photos. As they were getting ready for the wedding, the showers began but the WaterColor team was confident the rain would stop and the ceremony would go as planned. Shortly before the wedding, the rain ceased and as the guitarist was playing the bride’s music the sun peaked through the clouds shining on the ceremony. It was a flawless celebration with their family and friends.
