What a special weekend in Ponte Vedra Beach!  Ellie and Tim celebrated their marriage with 19 of their closest family members and friends with a full weekend of activities.

The weekend began with the arrival of the guests at The Lodge and Club at Ponte Vedra Beach.  After settling in to their rooms on Friday, the group gathered for casual cocktails and a Southern barbecue buffet dinner overlooking the ocean.

Saturday was an early morning for the bride, who was already having her makeup done by the wonderful Kimtasha Armstrong at 7:00 am!  After a trip to The Spa, Ellie was ready for her close up with photographer Nikki McEneaney of Photography By Nikki.

After cocktails under the oceanfront trellis, the party moved into The Conversatory for a wonderful lunch.  The simple and contemporary floral decor was supplied by Floriade in Jacksonville Beach.

The gorgeous chair covers and table linens included a custom-made 20' runner for the center of the table.  Michelle and Melissa at Royalty Events worked with me to find just the right shade of green!

And what wedding would be complete without a yummy cake from Classic Cakes.  Ellie and Tim chose chocolate cake with chocolate ganash filling for both layers, but couldn't decide between fresh raspberries or strawberries - so they had both!
