Wedding at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort – Stacey and Brent back to posts

Sunshine Coast Wedding at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort

The Sunshine Coast is easily in my top 5 of favorite places on the planet to shoot. I have been shooting a wedding there roughly 2-3 times every year over the last few years, and every time it feels like I am visiting a best friend (another fave of mine, check out Diane and Brock’s Rockwater Secret Cove Wedding). If you are considering having a wedding at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort (and I hope you are), do everything in your power to take a trip and see it in person. The feeling you get once you are there will be enough to help you with your decision. It really is an indescribable feeling.
