Destination Wedding Fort Walton, FL | Kola + Kassie | Wedding

Oh Kola and Kassie! So much to say.. To see their story unfold is such a privilege. It seemed from the start Kola knew Kassie was the one. Kassie was just taking each day as it came. You could see it in her eyes when she looked at him that she liked him more than she lead on. Their love had to grow through the distance of many miles. Kassie living in Washington state and Kola in Texas they had many trips and visits throughout their courtship. They planned their wedding from a distance as well. They planned a beautiful beach wedding off the Florida Cost on Fort Walton Beach. An intimate, sweet and perfect ceremony right on the water was just what they dreamed of and made happen. When Kassie sent me the picture of her Wedding dress she had chose, I saw it all coming together just perfectly. Blushes, Navy and the beach, a perfect combination. Friends and Family flew and drove in from all over. Kola's family being from Africa, it was the first time the entire family on his side had been in once place since he left Africa. This was a very special occasion for more than just one reason. They rented a beach house for the families and all stayed close for fun and activities leading up to their wedding day. My Husband and I had a wonderful time Photographing and witnessing our very good friend Kassie marry her best friend for Life! Thank you both again for choosing us to photograph one of the most important days of your life. I am grateful to know you Kassie and become as close as we have. From friends, to roommates, closer friends and "sisters".. now we welcome Kola to our "family". Jordan and I had a wonderful time and look forward to spending more with you both.

Kola had bought Kassie a very special gift of SI EAU DE PARFUM from giorgio armani We couldn't get enough of the scent.

Kassie's mother helped her with her final touches on her Hayley Paige wedding dress.

Since Kola and Kassie would be seeing each other down at the beach, they decided to have a first look just before heading out. It was so romantically sweet to see their faces seeing each other for the first time all dressed up and thinking of the commitment they will soon be making.

Their giggles said it all.

The water couldn't had been more perfect. The teal and navy colors were dreamy.

Their wedding was mostly a DYI Wedding. Kassie and her Family worked hard to put little touches on every last detail. I loved these Coral Reef wedding Details for the ceremony.

The beach ceremony details were just perfect. Simple Coral detailing and silky drapes for a romantic feel.

Kassie's ring bearer became a little fussy during the ceremony so, Kola's mother stepped into make things all better. I just loved this photos.

The wedding party.

The bride and her ring bearer. TOO CUTE!

There were so many beautiful moments I was able to capture of them two. I couldn't share them all.

Kola loving offered to carry the bouquet for Kassie so he could hold her hand. I made him stop because this moment was too sweet to pass up.

All the details and table settings for the wedding were put together by friends and family as a DYI Wedding.

Announcing for the first time Mr and Mrs Banjoko

They opted for a selection of many types of wedding cakes instead of one large cake. Everyone enjoyed a verity for choice. My favorite being the Extreme Chocolate Cake.

Kassie made her very own Vegan wedding cake the day before the wedding. What a bride?! Amazing!

Such a sweet and amazing wedding. So grateful I could be there to capture all these moments and many more!
