To say that Clinton and Jessica’s beach wedding was anything, but dreamy would be a complete fluff of air. It was my first beach wedding ever to shoot and to be a little honest I was a little scared about all the sand and to top it off, Clinton and Jessica were coming in from Dallas, Texas and I wanted to make the best impression. Jessica and I had chatted over Skype, we had emailed back and forth and to top it off, this was my first time shooting at this beautiful venue! If you are wanting a beautiful fresh beach surrounding with the best of the best, Mansion by the Sea is the place for amazingness, perfect hospitality and all around the perfect venue…you won’t be sorry. Promise, promise! The day was perfecto, the dolphins made appearances throughout the day, the weather was just right. Just wait to you see all the beauty!!
As I walked in to meet with Jessica on her wedding day, the bridal party was in full swing, laughter filled the room and the bride, well she was rockin’ a smile. Clinton and Jessica’s wedding was eye candy and I could not be more happy for a couple that is so deeply in love that just simply watching them is an inspiration of magic, fierceness and laughter!
I’m a goober for father/daughter first looks!!
Mr & Mrs. Holy, Y’all!!
This…My eyes had boohoo tears streaming. I don’t think there was a dry eye around. The sweetest most heartfelt speech given by Jessica to her one and only Clinton..heartmelt!

What was the most memorable moment from your wedding day?
Jessica: For me, it was the ceremony itself, I told myself I have to remember this! Which means I have no idea what the pastor said except for the vows, I just have this amazing image of Clint across from me, standing so handsome in his white linen, under a perfect sky and ocean behind us. I hope I never lose that image of him smiling at me as if we were the only ones there.
Clinton: For Clint, he says the moment he saw my dad walk me over to the top of the stairs. He says he prepared himself for how I might look but when he saw me, it was just so much ‘more’. I don’t know if anyone else but me saw him mouth the word “Wow” at me lol. That was his moment.
Any advice for future bride & grooms?
Oh my gosh no, not from me. I would pass on the information others gave me, don’t stress and take time to soak in the moment with each other. Then relive it together as much as possible! We rehashed the entire wedding day the day after and caught memories and stories from each other that we might not have kept otherwise!
Funniest memory of your wedding day?
Jessica: I forgot the right color undergarments!! I brought Black of all colors!! There was no turning back…as far as I know…I got away with it…
Clinton: No idea lol
If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?
No! Not at all! This was a great GREAT day!
We took a 7 seven day cruise to the Caribbean and it was AMAZING!!
Jessica and Clinton, Y’all are inspiring and thank you so much for everything!!
tons of love friends,
