Real Wedding: The Martins – Pensacola, FL

Updated: Aug 15


Ian + Maddie


Ian and Maddie were married on the most beautiful weekend in downtown Pensacola Florida. The sun was shining brightly and the temperature was perfect. As they say, it was a perfect day before a wedding.


Leading up to their wedding, Maddie was a very organized bride. All of her details were well planned. Maddie had lists of decor items, floor-plans, timeline drafts, etc. She was ready for the best day of her life..to marry Ian. The only thing she was missing was an experienced person to oversee the entire day.


Even though Maddie was well organized, there were a few things that stressed her out....among those few things...trash cans for the reception and the damn Crawfish Festival were on the top of her list. Her reception venue didn't have any trash cans which mean she had to provide them and the Crawfish Festival has rescheduled their date for the same weekend as her wedding. The Gray Girls were there to reassure any decisions and to find homegirl some disposable trashcans!


Maddie and Ian got married at the Historic Old Christ Church. The classic church was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony which was officiated by Maddie's younger sister, Alli. Supposey created the most alluring bouquets that highlighted this Spring day.


Jenna Loomis Photography captured every special moment that happened on this day. Ian and Maddie were overjoyed with celebrating their union with their family and friends. They didn't want to spend too much time taking bridal party and family pictures. They wanted to celebrate with their loved ones. Though they were frustrated with the idea of the Crawfish Festival as the backdrop, I encouraged them to take one photo in front of the entrance. Because this will be a precious memory and a great story to tell in the future. These are the details they'll remember on their 25th anniversary.


The brilliant couple, Ian and Maddie chose to have their reception within walking distance of the ceremony at the Pensacola Museum of Commerce. It was a party like no other. Throughout the entire night, the dance floor was packed and the smiles were contagious. As the night ended, Ian and Maddie shared one last dance together by themselves on the dance floor. To soak it all in that they were now Mr. and Mrs. Martin.
