Mallori and Dagan’s beach house wedding was filled with naturally nautical style and glam party moments that will put a smile on your face! The couple rented a huge house in Pensacola Beach for their entire wedding party to stay in, hosted their barefoot waterfront ceremony on the sand, and threw their gorgeous wedding reception underneath the piers of the house. Mallori and Dagan decked out their wedding with lots of driftwood accents, fresh florals, and a delicately glam color palette of blush, sage green, and gold. LAYERS Photography captured every fun moment of the couple’s day with photos and GIFs, including the rockstar moment at the end of the reception when the whole wedding party jumped in the pool!
Mallori and Dagan
Pensacola Beach, Florida
When planning my wedding the most important part was finding a huge beach home that our entire wedding party could stay at for the weekend. This was so important to me because I wanted to create a fun filled weekend for our wedding party since they were willing to drive so far to be with us on our special day.
From the start I knew I wanted something lace but I also wanted something very beachy. I searched once again days on end on Pinterest for dresses & never found one I was in love with UNTIL I went to Low’s Bridal in Brinkley AR. The moment I walked into the store my eyes when to this dress. It was lace just like a envisioned & had a shear bodice to show off my figure. It was the first wedding dress I EVER tried on & it was THE DRESS! Of course I tried on many after but none compared to that dress.
My grandfather is so precious to me & the minute I got engaged I knew I wanted him to be the officiant of my ceremony. Only problem was…he wasn’t ordained. He went out of his way to take online courses & became an ordained officiant to perform our wedding ceremony. This was so personal for my & definitely the personal touch to our ceremony.
1. Marry Me by Train played for the seating of the grandmothers, mothers, & honorary bridesmaids.
2. Ain’t No Mountain High by Marvin Gaye was played for the entrance of the Groomsmen & Groom. It was the best!
3. Thinking Out Loud – Violin and Piano Cover by Daniel Jang was played for the entrance of the bridesmaids and flower girl.
4. I Get To Love You by Ruelle was played when I walked down the aisle.
6. Marry You by Bruno Mars was played for the exit of the bridal/groom & bridal party.
7. The first dance song was You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne
8. Bride/Father dance Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle
9. Groom/Mother dance was You’re Gonna Be by Reba McEntire
Danielle & Connor with LAYERS Photography exceeded my expectations. They were prompt with making sure we stayed on time with pictures & we so much fun to be around.
My planning advise would be HAVE FUN with it. You typically only get to have a huge wedding once in a lifetime. Don’t let the stress of the big day overcome you. Enjoy it & soak every moment in because it goes by so fast!
My favorite photo taken by my photographer would have to be the picture of the entire wedding party in the pool. That was such a awesome way to end the night & I’m so glad to have that memory in a photograph for years to come.
The most memorable part of our wedding day would be when our entire wedding party & several guests jumped into the pool at the end of the reception. Funny thing was we were just getting ready to do our exit with sparklers when my husband was thrown into the pool. I wouldn’t trade that memory & those photos for anything.
