Once you’ve decided to host a wedding away, the next step is to discover your destination. Do you want to say “I do” in the mountains, in a Southern-style soirée, wine country or on the beach? The options are virtually endless. Knowing your and your soon-to-be spouse’s style will help you in taking a big step toward making a decision. For couples considering a beachfront affair, we’re sharing this photo shoot dedicated to beach destination wedding inspiration

The photographer behind the photo shoot feels a personal connection to the ocean and that’s what inspired the overall theme. She imagined she was planning her own destination wedding in Beachtown in Galveston, Texas. “I breathe in the crisp, fresh salty air and let my mind wander out over the water,” says photographer Mychelle LeVan. “I feel the ocean’s energy and life come over me. I am ready as I begin to walk down my sandy aisle where I look up and see my forever love. To some, the ocean is just water. To us it is so much more than that! What a perfect place for a proposal, elopement or wedding.”
