Jennifer and Elliot met when she came down to Destin on her Spring Break with her parents 4 years ago. She decided one night to do something completely out of character and go out with some locals from Destin. While Jennifer was at a friend’s condo and deciding where to go, Elliot and his beach chair buddies from Fort Walton showed up. However, Jennifer didn’t really notice Elliot walk in, until later that night, when they had a friendly conversation at the bar. Not knowing what this would turn in to or if they would ever talk again, Elliot got Jennifer’s phone number and they continued to keep in touch.
Luckily being a teacher, and having her summers off, Jennifer moved down to Destin the Summer of 2011 to see what this relationship would turn into.
After a year of dating long distance, and Jennifer spending two summers in Destin, Elliot moved up to St. Louis to be with Jennifer and proposed 2 years later.
Before ever meeting Elliot, Jennifer had always wanted to get married in Destin, as her family had been coming down for as long as she can remember. Luckily, meeting Elliot in Destin, and with him being a local, a Destin wedding was the perfect choice!
The ceremony took place at Resurrection Catholic Church and the reception was at Burnt Pine Country Club in Sandestin, where Elliot and Jennifer’s father both surprised Jennifer by picking the song for each of their first dances. It was an unforgettable wedding ceremony, followed by a perfect reception where there was never an open spot on the dance floor!
