I’ve been looking forward to this post since we booked Crystal and Phillip’s wedding over 18 months ago.  Although we have highlighted many weddings on the beach beside the Oceanic Restaurant, this is the first one we did on the pier.  Yes, I’m partial to this venue.  After all, it is where Paul and I had our first date and where we got engaged seven years later.  But nostalgia aside, it’s truly a beautiful place for a wedding.  With a spectacular 500 foot walk down the aisle and grand views of the horizon all around I can certainly see why Crystal Pier has become a popular choice for local and destination brides alike.  I also think it is fitting that our first bride on the pier shared its namesake. 

This wedding was also a reunion of sorts as Crystal’s bridesmaid Becky was actually a Beachside Occasions bride back in 2011 and Becky’s father officiated both weddings.  

It’s been nearly nine years since Paul popped the question and a little over a year since Crystal and Phillip said I do.   Where does the time go?  Since tying the knot the couple welcomed a handsome baby boy.  We couldn’t be happier for them both.
