5Eleven Palafox is one of my most favorite wedding venues in Pensacola. It is right in the heart of downtown Pensacola and features the most beautiful exposed brick walls, charming courtyard, and stunning bridal loft. Its just a dream wedding venue, so I was thrilled when Shelby and Alex choose it for their big day. They had the most beautiful ceremony on the courtyard and a stunning tented reception on the side lawn.

“5eleven is the perfect venue in downtown Pensacola bc it is absolutely gorgeous with or without decorations and it encompasses the old Pensacola feels with exposed brick and greenery. It also has the most gorgeous bridal loft to get ready in and a huge lawn for a fun band!” – Shelby

Shelby – “I wore a Paloma Blanca gown that I fell in love with the second I tried it on. I also wore loeffler randall heels that were gifted to me by Alex’s mom! A high pony because it is fun and so me, and Amelie George earrings!”

“We wanted our wedding to be the perfect mix of Alex and I. Neither of us are super traditional, so we wanted the feel to be super laid back but the most fun night of our lives!!”

What were some of sweetest memories of your wedding day?
“I had no intention of reading the letter I wrote Alex while we were during our first look, but it was such an incredible moment. Also having our ceremony officiated by Alex’s grandmother is a memory none of us will forget.”

What was your first dance song and why did you choose it for your first dance as husband and wife? 
“Coming Home by Leon Bridges. It’s the perfect mix of modern and old school soul which truly is Alex and it’s favorite kind of music.”
