I am thrilled to show you images from Brook and Daniel’s intimate destination beach wedding in Navarre, FL. These two have known each other for almost 7 years.
They met at a place called Mo’s Irish Pub. Brook was there listening to music and dancing with a friend. Daniel happens to be there eating with a couple of friends. Daniel saw Brook dancing and decided to stay so he could try to talk to her. A friend he was with came out on the dance floor, twirled me around, and stole Brook’s drink. So, she had to go to the bar to get another one, which Daniel offered to buy. Once she got a new drink she went back out to dance. Daniels’s friend once again came back and took her drink. So I had to go back up a second time and get another drink. Daniel bought that drink as well and they ended up talking the rest of the night. They went on their first date 2 days later and have been inseparable ever since.
Daniel proposed on Brook’s birthday. She happened to be sick with some type of stomach flu. He was planning to take Brook to dinner where they had their first date. The whole day Daniel kept telling Brooke to get cleaned up which would make her feel better. He told Brook he wanted to take her to dinner. She kept saying it’s my birthday and she didn’t want to. They ended up getting Pizza King delivered and he brought her a cookie cake. He told her to open it (She thought it was going to say Happy Birthday) but it said, “Brooke will you marry me?” She turned around and Daniel was on one knee.
The wedding was truly special. Brook wanted a small intimate beach wedding with just their immediate family members. So there was a total of about 13 people!
The wedding ceremony and reception took place at a beautiful rental home on the beach along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico called Sea La Vie, in Navarre, FL.

Their reception was pretty wonderful. They had dinner on the second-floor balcony with their families facing the beautiful gulf at sunset! It was so breathtaking! Of course, the bride’s dad said a few words which caused everyone to shed a few tears, including myself!
“This day was stress-free and everything I could have wanted,” says Brook.
I wish you could have been there, too, blog readers! At least you can live through the pictures!
