Bailey McBurnett, is one of our Real Suzanne's Bridal Boutique brides, and we just adore her! Her and her husband, Andrew, have a love story straight out of a movie! They had one of the most dreamy beach weddings we have ever seen. We are excited to have Bailey share their love story, and wedding herself with us on the blog today.
"Andrew and I met when we were freshman in high school. Two years later we went on our first date, and after that first date Andrew told me a year later that when he got back in his truck after dropping me off he said out loud "I have found the next Mrs. McBurnett"! We dated for the rest of high school and in my Senior year Andrew had just graduated the spring before and was going to be going to college 2 hours away. We decided to try long distance. We made it work for 3 long years of lots of driving and phone calls. It was so hard but so very worth it."
"8 months later with lots of wedding planning we had our beautiful beach wedding on a cliff in La Jolla, California. It was always a dream of mine and Andrew to get married on the beach. It was a warm sunny day filled with our closest family and friends. We had a simple reception to follow at a restaurant that overlooked the entire La Jolla cove.
After the reception Andrew and I headed back down to the beach to take some sunset photos. We posed on the cliffs and walked along the sand just enjoying every moment. The waves were calm and the sunset was incredible."
"About halfway through our shoot we were standing near the waters edge, when all of a sudden a giant wave came to the shore pulling on my dress and taking me down to the sand. I could not believe it. The whole bottom half of my dress was soaked and the ends of my hair were drenched. I knew that there was a chance of me getting a little wet and sandy but I did not see this coming."
"After that brief moment of shock, we laughed and decided to have fun with it now! We went deeper into the water, laid in the sand, and had a much more fun time than if the incident never would of happened. Over all the whole wedding was the wedding of our dreams and we wouldn't of changed a single thing!”
Don't we have the most beautiful brides?! I love how sweet and easy going this couple is. What a great way to make the most out of a situation when they got soaked by the waves rolling in! Those photos came out so adorable too! What a fun memory! Thank you Bailey, for sharing your sweet story and wedding with us! Everything turned out gorgeous, and we are so happy to have you as a Suzanne's Bridal Boutique bride. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special day.
