Laura & Jesse – One Ocean Resort & Spa

A very special wedding for me to close out the year on. Laura is a dear friend and I was honored to help plan her day. We even pulled off a beach ceremony! It was a little chilly but gorgeous. Laura who works for the PGA TOUR and Jesse who works for Golf Channel kept a refined golf theme running throughout their wedding with subtle nods to what brought them together. Everyone danced the night away outside on the One Ocean patio to the rocking sounds of the Chris Thomas Band. It was a perfect evening. With an extra bonus of working with one of my favorites, Corinna Hoffman.

Katharine and Will – Ponte Vedra Inn and Club

This family is very special to me. They had gone through a lot to get to this special day as it was unsure the groom would have a wedding someday. Another destination wedding. The families were from Atlanta and had almost a full week of parties, golf outings and gatherings before the big day. You could see the love the guests had for this couple. The rain and gloomy weather could not keep this wedding party down. We ended up having to move both ceremony and reception inside but with the help of Mugwumps, Liz Stewart and Ponte Vedra Inn and Club we created a breathtaking vision indoors. The ceiling scraping trees were a show stopping piece when their guests walked into the ceremony and reception. Thanks to Liz Stewart for bringing in nature and the beach feel inside for this couple who so desperately wanted an ocean side event.

Emily & Chris – Treasury on the Plaza

I loved working with Emily from the start. The couple was planning a full destination wedding as they lived in Stewart, Florida and had guests coming from all over the country. It was my first wedding at Treasury on the Plaza since they opened and it did not disappoint. The space was absolutely gorgeous. Coupled with their incredibly touching and special ceremony at Trinity Episcopal Parish and their guests were swooning. It was also my first time working with the Headliners Band and they absolutely killed it out there. We practically had to drag people off the dance floor at the end of the evening.

A special thanks to Jen Mosely– always a pleasure to work with her and see her jaw dropping photos.

Lindsay & Adam – Walker’s Landing

Lindsay, Adam and their friends and family came down from Atlanta for a fun filled week in Amelia Island. They were an immense pleasure, from when I first started planning with them a year in advance to the final send off at the end of the evening they truly enjoyed their wedding day surrounded by all their people. From the beautiful weather to the fun touches they placed throughout the event, you really could not have asked for a better day!

Kristy & Teddy – One Ocean

Kristy & Teddy’s wedding was unforgettable. The day was perfect, the details all came together just as Kristy had imagined with remarkable florals by Liz Stewart, and their love for one another absolutely radiated throughout the day. Kristy & Teddy were married in a romantic beach ceremony, followed by a stunning reception at One Ocean Resort. The guests enjoyed dinner and danced the night away to the sounds of The Steel Drum Band.

Liz Golden of J’adore Studios was there to capture all of the magic.
