Katy + Sam’s wedding was a perfect October day in the fun town of Gulfport, Florida. It wasn’t too hot (which is a bit of a surprise) and it was a perfect night for a major backyard dance party! Katy and Sam traveled from Charleston, SC (a city I am dying to visit and so happy to have new friends there now) and most of their friends and family traveled from all over to be at their special day. I knew instantly that I wanted to capture their wedding when Katy said in her inquiry that they have a dog and three pet ducklings!!! I tried to get them to bring their furry and feathered friends to Florida but alas traveling with ducks can pose challenging.
