Thank you so very much for all the help, support and handling that you cared for throughout our wedding celebrations. You made all of our planning and our visions just come to life! You cared for all of the little details and helped to ensure it was such a special day. Thank you for bringing it all together in a meaningful way.
Most Sincerely, Kyle and Brian

Marta and Michael were married on March 1, 2014 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. They planned their wedding long-distance, all the way from North Dakota, with the help of Marta's parents and sister who live in Florida. What a beautiful weekend, and an amazing blending of two families and cultures! Thanks to Nate and Bryn from Deremer Studios for sharing these photos with us.
Since Marta and Michael are both dentists, they created these cute little bags as favors - they contained toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other cute goodies!

Such a sweet card from Marta and Michael, who were married on March 1, 2014 at TPC Sawgrass! They planned their Ponte Vedra Beach wedding long-distance, all the way from North Dakota.
You were such an amazing planner! All we talked about was how organized, professional you were throughout this entire process. I couldn't have done this without you. Thank you again!
Love, Marta & Michael
We loved helping them with the design of the wedding and the logistics. We can't wait to see the photos from Deremer Studios!
Ashley and Matt had an amazing wedding at TPC Sawgrass, complete with a little lightning before the ceremony and some spectacular fireworks during the reception!
The bridesmaids' dresses were an amazing shade of blue - paired with the green and white flowers, the girls looked stunning!
This was quite possibly the closest weather call I've made in my 14 years of doing weddings. I made the call to go ahead with the outdoor ceremony, despite a few rain cells on the radar. Minutes before we were supposed to start, TPC's golf course sirens were going off, alerting golfers to nearby lightening! But, we made it without any rain - but you can see the impending storm approaching in this photo!
This was a first at a wedding reception - I don't think I've ever had a groom do a handstand!
And of course, who doesn't love fireworks at a wedding!

How adorable are these two? The smiles on their faces says it all - yep, we're in love! We had a great time coordinating Jenna and Andy's wedding in June.
Jenna and Andy also got to see a sneak preview two weeks before their own wedding, when one of Jenna's bridesmaids got married at the same ceremony venue! The girls shared many of the same vendors, so Jenna and Andy knew she didn't have a thing to worry about on the wedding day.
And speaking of vendors, we got to see one of the coolest things ever at a wedding reception. Visual Power Cinema actually edited footage from throughout the day, and showed the highlights AT THE RECEPTION. You heard me right! Not more than three hours after the ceremony, we were watching the video. Amazing!!
It happened to be the father of the bride's birthday, so we brought out this adorable cake while everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to him!
From the stunning decor to the delicious food to the sparkler send-off, it was certainly a night to remember!

Lindsay and Jordan's wedding was simply stunning! We love getting to work with such sweet couples and their families. I had the pleasure of getting to know Lindsay's mom as we wrapped up the final details for the wedding since Lindsay and Jordan live in Tampa. All the hours spent on each little touch were well spent. Check out even more images on our Facebook page, or on Ron B. Wilson Photography's blog!

Matt and Mira are such a sweet couple, and both have such amazing families! They met in college and have survived the years through medical school and now residency as they begin a new journey as husband and wife. Because of their hectic schedules, Matt's mom was responsible for most of the wedding plans - we think she did an incredible job! In addition, she and her husband hosted the wedding and reception at their beautiful riverfront home.
Tables, chairs, and linens were supplied by Beachview Tent Rentals, with the First Coast Weddings team doing all of the setup and breakdown.
The wooden bowl pictured above was handmade by friends of the family, and held the rings during the ceremony. It was passed around during the ceremony for the guests to offer a blessing for the couple.
The menu, created by Karen Glenn, was a buffet of French-inspired Southern favorites. Some highlights included Chinois Grilled Lamb Tenderloin with Cilantro Mint Vinaigrette, Shrimp and Grits, and Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. Oliv'r Twist provided bar service, where local favorite Bold City Kiler Whale Ale was served alongside Labatt's Blue in honor of the bride's Canadian heritage. The signature drink was a Lemon Drop, the bride's favorite!
The lemon-flavored cake, to compliment the Lemon Drop Martinis, was created by The Cake Shop of San Jose. The super-sweet forks, engraved with the wedding date, were a gift to the bride and groom.
The best way to leave a riverfront reception - by boat! We love the special flag that the mother of the groom ordered, as well as the pretty streaming ribbons and floral wreaths by Rose of Sharon European Florist.
Mimi and Trey's wedding weekend was a true celebration of family, friends, and love! Thanks for letting us share your wedding day with you.
Mimi worked with a friend that designed all of her stationery for her, including the adorable programs!
The Heritage Ballroom at the Marriott Sawgrass looked amazing for their ceremony. All decor by PRI Productions.
The String Group provided ceremony music, and then continued during cocktail hour.
This head table is incredible! It seats 30 people, including the bride and groom on the bench in the middle. All decor by PRI Productions.
Yes, that is Taco Bell! We got extra-special permission from the hotel to bring in the bride and groom's favorite late-night snack at the end of their reception.

Jessica and Brendan's gorgeous fall wedding took place at TPC Sawgrass on November 5th 2011. From my first meeting with Jessica and Brendan, l could tell how in love they are with each other. They are such a fun, easy going couple, and l really enjoyed working with them. Jessica and Brendan really captured the essence of the season, choosing rich fall colors like orange, red and yellow. Rose of Sharon created a magnificent floral arbor, which was the focal point for the Ceremony, and amazing centerpieces for the Reception. Plumb Fun Photobooth provided some fun entertainment and The Cloud 9 Band kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! One of my most memorable moments of the night was the sparkler exit, where Jessica and Brendan hopped onto a golf cart to ride off into the night! Agnes Lopez Photography caught that image and of course many more! Below are some wedding highlights from Jessica and Brendan's big day!
We got a lovely note in the mail today from Christa and James, who were married on October 8th at The Lodge and Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. It's always great working with such sweet couples, and their equally lovable families!
Dear Heather, Thank you so much for helping me plan the wedding of our dreams! You were the perfect amount of help and advice! Everything ran so smoothly, especially on the Big Day itself, and I know that happened because of your expertise! I will absolutely be referring my Jacksonville/St. Augustine friends to you! Thank you again! It was an absolute fairy tale! Have a wonderful holiday season!
Love, Christa and James
