Amber and Bret’s Destin Bay House Wedding was Perfect

Posted on by Andie

Amber & Bret Gehrs – March 24, 2018


Amber and Bret GehrsEvery wedding that takes place at the Destin Bay House is special, but some are so incredible they can’t help but stick out in your mind! Amber and Bret Gehrs’s waterfront wedding in Destin, Florida was one of those weddings for us. Amber and Bret said “I do” on a gorgeous day in March last year and we’ve been reminiscing ever since.

Amber and Bret perfectly incorporated the spring season into their special day. The bride’s ivory lace wedding dress with a champagne sash and light blue bridesmaids dresses were accented by pink roses and blue hydrangeas. And of course, Bret and his groomsmen looked dashingly handsome in their tan suits! Brett Birdsong, of Birdsong Photography, did an incredible job capturing the beauty of Amber and Bret’s ceremony and the level of love and adoration between the couple.

Amber and Bret GehrsWhen asked about one thing that stood out from their ceremony, our Day-Of Coordinator Erin Shoults said: “the look Bret had on his face when Amber started walking down the aisle toward him – tear!” Erin also noted that she loved “the way the entire family was involved in their wedding. Several of them stayed at the Cottages by the Bay and spent several days together. How close their family is was evident in the way they came together to celebrate Amber and Bret.”

It was also really important to the couple that Amber’s uncle prepared a shrimp boil for the reception. He cooked the shrimp himself and had it delivered for dinner – it was a big hit with every guest! They used Parties Unlimited, one of our preferred vendors, to handle cleanup and maintain the buffet!

Another one of our favorite elements from Amber and Bret’s ceremony were the lanterns! Amber’s mom brought all kinds of beautiful lanterns – some borrowed, some her own – and created the most amazing light throughout the venue. The lanterns were placed at the ceremonial arch and on reception tables, and certainly took everyone’s breath away as soon as the sun set! At the end of the reception, Amber and Bret said goodbye to their wedding guests through a bubble send off!

Thank you, Amber and Bret, for allowing the Destin Bay House to be a part of your special day! Amber and Bret will celebrate the first of many years together on March 24 this year, and we couldn’t be more excited for them!
