Nelly & Steven are such a great couple. They were so laid back and easy to work with, and all of their decor details were so tasteful and elegant! We don't think we saw Nelly stop smiling all day. And we'd catch Steven giving her the cutest adoring glances throughout the evening. They spent ever moment so present, and engaged with each other and their guests. Taking it all in. Soaking up the amazing energy. 

They had a subtle wine theme woven into the wedding reception- from the cork place cards to the wine barrel guest book and the deep red hued florals, you could almost feel the "richness" of a smooth, red wine influence. One of our favorite parts of the reception was the guest "activity" - caricature artist! It doubled as a really personalized favor, which we love!  And the cake was perfection! The smooth fondant with the delicate hand drawn flourishes- marvelous! 

They had an amazing team of vendors to assist them in making the day perfect and we were honored to have been one of them!

St. Augustine has become a popular destination wedding location- and it's no mystery why. Our town is full of charm, character and class! We also happen to have some of the best wedding venues in the state, in our bias opinion!  Summer and Mark are familiar with the St. Augustine landscape (having a personal connection to nearby Ponte Vedra), but happen to live in D.C. full-time. Which meant they planned their wedding from afar. We were thrilled to assist them with their union at Treasury on the Plaza. 

Summer & Mark (both lawyers) have refined, classic style- we would define it as a little old world luxury mixed with modern elegance. Which is why the Treasury on the Plaza was such a great spot for their ceremony and reception! They had a neutral color scheme of white and gold, which looked quite glamorous paired with the venue's white marble, cathedral ceilings and historic vault.  

As favors, each guest was given a bottle of champagne- such a fun idea! 

We were honored to assist the couple with their planning and are thrilled to wish them the happiest of futures!
