Folly Beach Destination Wedding | Barbara and Darryl

“Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.”Robert Ingersoll

Today I want to show you the story of Barbara and Darry’s destination beach wedding on Folly Beach on historic Folly Island just outside Charleston, South Carolina.  If Barbara and Darryl look a little familiar, it’s probably because we made some pretty fantastic engagement photos in historic downtown Norcross a few months back.  Barbara and Darryl have a very special story.  You see, they met and dated a few years back, but it wasn’t the right time for them, so they parted ways for a while.  But, a few years later, with a different outlook on life, they found each other again and this time everything was clearly meant to be.  Spending time with them is relaxing and fun… always fun.  They laugh together a lot.  Even their wedding ceremony was full of laughter in addition to being very touching and personal.  Between you and me, Barbara and Darryl are seriously good hosts, and it was pretty clear at the end of the day that no one really wanted to go home. And that, my internet friends, is the story of how Barbara and Darryl finally got married.  Congratulations to Barbara and Darryl are definitely in order, as well as giant thank yous.  You are really neat people and a wonderful couple, and I had so much fun getting to know you both.  I’m glad you found each other again, and I wish you endless love and laughter and joy for many many years to come.
