First ever wedding on the Barefoot Resort Love Course with a bit of Dr. Who

This was the first ever wedding held at this spot on the Barefoot Resort and Golf Love Course. It was held at a really nice spot where they have the recreated ruins of an old plantation home along holes 3-7. The mother and father of the groom were long time members of Barefoot resort, so they were given the special opportunity to do a wedding at this spot. I've done lots of weddings backing up to golf courses, but never one where there were no golfers to watch out for. This was special because the entire course was closed down for us, we had the location to ourselves with no one else around.

As you can see below, the couple decided to do a first look to get some of the pictures done before the ceremony. I really like the storyboard format of my blog now, it's easier to show something like a first look that can be hard to express in a single picture. Thanks to it being cloudy, even though it was earlier in the day we didn't have a problem with the harsh sunlight. The couple are big fans of the Dr. Who series, so we incorporated that in some of the pictures. The wedding planner Elizabeth Hodges, that I've worked with a lot, her son came dressed at The Dr. He looked like he could fit right into that series, he really made a convincing look-alike. I really loved the look of the Tuxedos worn by the groomsmen, and the groom's top hat. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures below, please comment if you do.
