Gatsby Inspired Jacksonville Yacht Club Wedding

We had the pleasure of designing and planning Shaen and Kingston’s beautiful Jacksonville wedding at the Florida Yacht Club.  Their touching ceremony was held at the historic First Baptist church that was filled with so much emotion and love. We combined their love of the Jacksonville Jaguars  by incorporating their colors into the Great Gatsby theme the bride had her heart set on.

Real Jacksonville Wedding: Scarlett and Stephen

Going through some pictures, I realized I never shared Scarlett and Stephen‘s beautiful wedding!  Their wedding meant so much to me because I have absolutely adored Scarlett as a friend and colleague for many years now. A naturally beautiful and bubbly personality grew into an even more vibrant and sparkling person when she fell in love with Stephen, which made me love Stephen, too!

As wedding photographers, we all knew that photography would be super important, but the two also knew that the inclusion of details are what would make the photography spectacular.   The couple enlisted the creative genius of celebrity photographers Zach and Jody Gray to document their day.

The wedding was steeped in sentiment and faith.  Scarlett and Stephen decided to get married at Scarlett’s mother’s Victorian home, with a religious service and ceremony taking place in the beautiful backyard garden.  Anyone that has followed Scarlett’s blog, knows her infinite love for her poodle pup, Rhett– who served as the honorary ring bearer.  Scarlett’s bouquet was a mix of her favorite shades of pink, with a pop of blue, by way of a blue butterfly.  Scarlett’s father passed away the year before, but told her he would always be near her every time she saw a blue butterfly.  This was a touching way to have him close during the wedding.
