Alys Beach, FL in 30a //
Wow. If I could put my wedding into one word, thats what it would be. I tear up writing this as I look back at my wedding day truly being the most spectacular day of my life because it was the day my best friend, my dream man of 10 years became MY man, MY husband! I was on cloud nine and nothing could happen that would bring me down.
I woke up on my wedding day, opened the door from the bridal suite to find hundreds of sticky notes covering the walls.. (that was Drew’s thing when we were younger). They were all reasons why Drew loved me! And another reason why I loved him and couldn’t wait to marry him!
The ceremony was in the most stunning place I’ve ever seen and it’s still a dream to me that I got to get married there. Alys Beach, a small town on 30a in Florida, has a luxurious Mediterranean feel, white mansions right on the ocean, feeling like you’re in Greece and nowhere near Florida. Drew lost it at the end of the isle, which is quite ironic because I’ve only seen him cry once in all 10 years we’ve been inseparable. We wrote our own vows, kissed (at the foot of a 7 ft. floral cross that I still dream about), and officially became Mr. & Mrs. Hill!
We rode in our 1960’s Rolls Royce to the reception in Watercolor, FL to arrive at a white garden and twinkling lights that I only thought was in my head for all of those years, and now it came to life! We cried at speeches, enjoyed the cigar and bourbon bar and danced the night away. I still hear from all of our guests, how emotional and fantastic our wedding day was. A day that truly exceeded all of my dreams.
