San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

We are so fortunate to meet some amazing people through our photography, but we’re truly blessed when those people become friends. When we first met Michelle & Josh for their engagement photos in Plano, TX, we wished that we didn’t live 16 hours away from them! But Facebook has helped bridged the distance between us!

We were really excited to see them again for their destination wedding in Hilton Head, SC. They held the wedding at the Crowne Plaza Resort Hilton Head Island, a gorgeous resort on the beach that showcased the natural beauty of the island. Michelle & Josh made the wedding very special with a lot of personal touches. The ceremony was officiated by Josh’s father, the Reverend Franklin D. Wilson Sr. from Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church in McKinney, TX. The processional and recessional was performed by Josh’s brother, Josiah, and his wife, Candace. They were Vocal Performance majors in college and performed the song “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. As Michelle & Josh walked past their guests for the first time ever as husband and wife, they immediately went into their first dance on the beach. It was such a beautiful, unique idea! But one of my favorite personal touches from their wedding was more subtle. Michelle wrapped her father’s dog tags around her bouquet to honor his memory. As she walked down the aisle on the arm of her brother, Daniel, she knew that her father was also with her. It was so moving!

Another thing I love about their wedding is the colors! Michelle & Josh asked all of their guests to wear different shades of blue to the wedding. And Michelle’s gorgeous bouquet from A Floral Affair perfectly matched the the sand and the periwinkle blue ocean. Toward sunset, the sky turned a brilliant blue. It was such a spectacular setting for photos, and we’re so happy that the sun came out for their destination wedding!

We think after seeing these photos you’ll see why Michelle & Josh are so special! They are so full of laughter and love and we are so happy that we met them! In addition to our excitement about sharing these beautiful wedding photos, we’re also thrilled to say that today is Michelle’s birthday! We already started celebrating over here on the East Coast an hour ago, but now it’s officially Michelle’s birthday in Texas, too! We wish you the happiest birthday and congratulate you and Josh on your nuptials! And let’s make sure we plan that trip to meet “half way” in New Orleans soon!! We miss you guys! : )
