The Waterfield Wedding Was Too Much (Amazing) and We Can’t Get Enough!

Posted on by destinbayweddings

Who are the best Destin wedding vendors?

Every Destin Bay House wedding is spectacular because each one exudes the character of the two people professing their vows. But some Destin weddings are just beyond. You know what we mean: beyond spectacular, beyond gorgeous, beyond “Why didn’t I think of that!”

The Waterfield wedding is one of those events that just stop us in our tracks. From the bride’s beautiful gown and jewel toned bouquet, to the couple’s photo with their beloved bloodhound Elvis, we can’t get enough.

Let’s start with the jewel toned bouquet, shall we? While most people think of delicate pastels for a spring wedding, bride Paige Waterfield punched up her bouquet with dazzling jewel toned peonies, roses, foxgloves and even succulents. These colors carried over in the bridesmaid’s dresses—a rich aubergine—and the jaw dropping reception.

The bride and groom’s table was besotted with an infatuating arrangement of floral sprays in tones of violet, aubergine, ruby, and peach. Elegant touches of golden-hued sparkle and shine elevated the atmosphere from elegant to exquisite. Destin Bay House wedding planner Erin Shoults couldn’t say enough good things. “[Paige] chose some great vendors and it takes a team!”

Of course, a post-St. Patty’s Day wedding means this couple knows how to have fun! Nowhere is this better evidenced than in their bridal party photo—a veritable display of vivacious cheer. This happy-go-lucky group decked themselves in Emerald green hats, glasses, and boas in homage to the Patron Saint.

The photographer extraordinaire responsible for capturing the Waterfield’s stunning day is Anna Calhoon of Anna Calhoon Photography. In an all-too-perfect twist of fate, Anna’s own wedding was held at Destin Bay House so this shoot was especially sweet for her. “I got married there years ago, so the Destin Bay House will always have a special place in my heart,” Anna said. As for Paige and Taylor Waterfield’s wedding, she continued, “The entire day [was] wonderful!”

We concur, to say the least.

    I am the bride’s grandmother/mother’s side. I never expected such a breathtaking scene as when we walked into Destin Bay House gardens, looking through the moss hanging trees to the water – all the chandeliers hanging from the gigantic oaks – the firepits blazing – music, drinks and food everywhere. Everything was magnificent. I was thankful for the tremendous talent put into the celebration. The Church wedding was so important and moving to the family as well. St Patricks day will now always have a very special meaning to all of us.

    We are so honored to be a part of this special day for your family! Thank you for your kind words. This is exactly why we do what we do.

  6. The most important day of my daughters life was March 17th/St Patricks Day 2017 and it will live in my memory for the rest of my life. Don’t think I have ever seen a more beautiful wedding. We had fretted over the weather for weeks and then the week of the wedding it was still rainy, but like a miracle the sun came out the day of the celebration, like a blessing for the couple. The Destin Bay House really made the event magical and so romantic. The location, close to all the families homes, was very convenient. The unspoiled and charming setting of the Bay House is “old Florida”. The stunning décor by the wedding planners and Karen Waterfield (Mother of the Groom and Owner of Sugar Beach Interiors) was breathtaking. Words can’t explain how magnificent the grounds looked or how much we all enjoyed. Just an unforgettable day. Thank you Destin Bay House !!!
