We met Micheal and Sarah within the first week of moving to the island and have become fast friends. They were in the process of “planning” their own version of a Tybee Island Wedding (which actually meant as little planning as possible) and asked us to do the photography and video. The only thing they new for sure is that they wanted to do it at night, on the beach under a full moon. Gotta love a challenge.
From the start, this was far more about getting the “carnival of friends” together to have a good time and to make this new Brady Bunch official. Casual and spontaneous were the key words. (Micheal had made it very clear that he might very well show up in running shorts and a t-shirt) The chosen venue was the monthly Full Moon Party at Marlin Monroe’s. The weather was gorgeous, the moon was full and the love shared between these two was clear to everyone.
Rings and vows were exchanged (the kind of vows you could only find in a Tybee Wedding) and the party moved onto the deck, where there were sunflower cupcakes, funky music and lots of hugs to go around.
Micheal and Sarah spent their honeymoon in Belize and through the miracle of modern technology, we were able to send them a facebook message linking them to the video below Tybee Island Wedding – Full Moon Style
We were thrilled to have the chance to capture this night for Micheal and Sarah and even more thrilled to have them as friends as we start our own new journey here on Tybee Island.
