Y'all. This wedding though. This was truly a jaw-dropper with the sweetest couple. They met at The University of Florida in Gainesville and have been a happy couple since!
Ansley was stunning in her fitted gown- and when she walked into the church for their "I Do" moment, Ansley couldn't keep it together. It was an incredible moment. The two were inseparable on their wedding day and really took the time to soak in the moments! We love that they did a complete rent-out of The White Room. They hosted the cocktail hour and dancing upstairs while hosting for formal dinner in the ballroom. The decor blew us away!
They're so very in-love and watching the two of them together on the wedding day was pure joy.

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!

Alyson and Bryan's downtown St. Augustine wedding was an absolutely amazing day. This duo is so sweet and hosted such a gorgeous event! Alyson and her ladies prepped for the big day at the Bayfront Marin House. It was a leisurely morning with lots of girl bonding time. Plus, the weather was great!
Their ceremony was held at Memorial Presbyterian Church, which is arguably one of the most beautiful in downtown. Following their traditional Christian ceremony, was their reception at Treasury on the Plaza. And boy did they ever throw an amazing party! From the lounge furniture to the live band, it was a lively celebration with lots of laughter and plenty of dancing.
The had a great color combination for florals and decor- the red and blue combination was bold and vibrant, without coming off as too "patriotic." Not that patriotic decor is a bad thing, but if that isn't the look you're going for, there is a balancing act in your design elements. A Fantasy in Flowers did a wonderful job tying the pieces together with their lush florals and deep hues!
