Kristin and Austin were by far the most laid back and fun loving couple we have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are incredibly friendly and just genuinely nice people. We loved getting to know this amazing couple and their wedding in April was one that we thoroughly enjoyed coordinating.
The bride and her five bridesmaids spent their morning getting ready at the Pensacola Downtown Bayfront Manor while the boys enjoyed their relaxing morning at a family residence in Beulah. The couple had a breathtaking first look right outside of the photographer Aislinn Kate’s studio. The bridal party took pictures at Bartram Park, then enjoyed some downtime at the Pensacola Bay Brewery before the ceremony. Kristin’s uncle, Jan, ordained the ceremony at Old Christ Church while Emily Bova whisked us away with her mastery piano playing. Kristen and Austin said “I Do” after exchanging their handwritten vows – and walked back down the aisle as newlyweds.
After a week full of intense storms that only caused problems for out of town family, the wedding day couldn’t be more beautiful. The sunny and 75 degree Pensacola weather set the perfect backdrop for nothing shy of a perfect reception. The eclectic table decor and beautiful flower arrangements provided by Fiore complimented the always stunning Palafox Wharf Reception Venue. DJ Matt Powell of Powell Entertainment set the mood high, and the guests energy was even higher. Nancy’s Catering and Events served up several different fun and delicious food stations, including a carving station that served fresh prime rib from a family cattle farm in Iowa. The newlyweds partied into the night, and even unveiled a Cigar & Whiskey Bar (the bar in which was hand crafted by Austin himself) after they cut their stunning cake made by the talented Betty Weber. The bride and groom concluded the festivities with a bubble-filled exit and made their way downtown to continue the celebration.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Austin Leonard and thank you for letting P.S. Weddings help make your special day truly one of a kind.
