Y'all. This wedding was GORGEOUS. And their vendor team was a collection of our St. Augustine favorites.  It was a little bit boho, but with lots of timeless elements. Their decor was fantastic in every way- TONS of dreamy details with a subtle wine theme. 

They held their ceremony and reception at The White Room's rooftop & loft area. The rooftop has an incredible view of the bayfront and when the breeze blows, it's a little slice of heaven! Jessica walked down the aisle to an acoustic guitar melody and met a joyful Kevin awaiting his bride beneath a garland and floral drenched arbor. 

For the reception decor - the venue was overflowing with burgundy toned florals, garland and greenery, gold accents and copious candlelight. The gold lanterns were beautiful mixed among the florals. And the cake. Oh, my- all the heart eyes for that incredible fresh floral embellishment!

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!

This southern couple is as sweet as the Georgia pecan pie. Their wedding was an all-star cast of vendors and full of joy, laughter and darn good food! They were ALL about providing Southern Hospitality to their destination wedding guests, and we think they did it in grand style! 

The Riverhouse was the perfect venue for them- they were able to host the ceremony and reception in one location. After their waterfront vows, guests moved inside to enjoy a classically beautiful reception with all the fixings (or fixins as we would say in the South)! 

Anytime a couple has a band, we know it's going to be ALL about dancing. And their guests certainly kept the dance floor packed. It was a wonderful event and we were honored to help the new Mr & Mrs.

Allison and Armando's wedding was one for the books! The provided such an amazing guest experience for their friends and friends. Of course, the couple planned a wedding that was a reflection of them, so it was no surprise to us that they were so careful in planning a day that was about the love they share and the things that mean something to them as a couple.  Allison got ready at The Casa Monica before the wedding. After being pampered and primped by Amanda Hopcraft, she was ready for the first look! After sharing a few picture perfect moments, the couple was ready to say I Do at the Cathedral in downtown St. Augustine.

Their reception at Treasury on the Plaza was a BLAST. They served amazing food (and drinks), Armando serenaded Allison and their guests with a Sax (SUCH a memorable moment) and they danced the night away! Everyone really soaked in the celebration. 

One thing we didn't share pictures of is that Allison and Armando had a puppy bar! Yep, you read that right. They had an area set-up with local pups that were available for adoption. We'd seen a few similar ideas online leading up to the wedding, but to actually SEE it in person. Oh my gosh, it was adorable and pulled at our heartstrings!

The holiday season is quickly approaching, so we thought that Stacie & Daniel's wedding would be the perfectthrow-back (even though it was earlier this year- New Year's Day, to be exact) to provide a little fall/winter inspiration!It is hard believe that we're so close to New Years. This year has disappeared!  

 Anytime we see reds, orange, yellow or navy, we think fall. So, it's no surprise that Stacie & Danielle's RED wedding speaks to our holiday hearts! Add the Nights of Lights backdrop, and we're in serious countdown mode to Thanksgiving. We might also be impatiently waiting to put up our Christmas trees too.
