Choosing a hair stylist and makeup artist for your wedding can be intimidating! We asked Nicole Boutros, owner of NIC Studios in Jacksonville, a few questions to help you in making your selection.
When we refer our clients to other companies, it's based on a number of factors: the style of the wedding, the location, the couples' personalities and budget, just to name a few.
Let’s face it - planning a large event like a wedding can be STRESSFUL! And not just the wedding itself, but everything that goes with it. It’s easy for that stress to cause anxiety and depression.
After 20 years working in the wedding industry, our owner Heather Canada put together a few thoughts to share.
In this age of environmental consciousness everyone is looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Brides and grooms are not different.
Morgan and Nick planned their Hammock Dunes Club wedding long-distance, and we were happy to be their local point of contact for the wedding. Their photographers took these amazing photos around the club grounds, and WOW what a sunset! It was such a beautiful day for a loving and caring couple. Here’s what Morgan had to say:
Thank you so much for the thoughtful ring dish, and for making our day absolute perfection! We could not have dreamed of how flawlessly everything was orchestrated, and are beyond grateful to you.
What happens when your wedding takes place during hurricane season? Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Nikki contacted us because the wedding planner her sister used, who no longer lives or works in the area, recommended us. What an honor! Their destination wedding was so beautiful, with the Atlantic Ocean serving as the backdrop for both their ceremony and reception. Nikki says:
Heather did a WONDERFUL job coordinating everything for the day of our wedding! I was not stressed leading up to our big day due to her flawless attention to detail and ability to manage anything that came up. She was efficient, timely and organized which is just what I needed to make me feel confident in allowing her to take the reins. If any mishaps came up on the day of our wedding I didn't know about it because she was there to take care of it :) Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was down to the last detail and we are on cloud nine remembering the perfection of that day. I highly recommend First Coast Weddings and Events for any bride and/or groom looking to make their day flow easily.

Taylor and Henning’s December wedding at TPC Sawgrass was so much fun! We loved helping them pull together all the final details to make their wedding day relaxing and enjoyable for their families and friends.
Mary and Kevin had a beautiful tented wedding on the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse lawn. It was such a windy day! The centerpieces kept blowing over, so we had to improvise with the placement of some of the decor. Luckily, when it was time for the reception the breeze had died down and it was a lovely evening for an outdoor event! And Mary’s dress was so amazing - it had a skirt that could be worn over the dress, so she had two looks without having to change dresses. Perfection!
Brunch weddings - we love them! This sweet couple was married on a beautiful Sunday December morning. Their ceremony was at 10:30am with a brunch reception following at TPC Sawgrass. They had a special first look by the Christmas tree on the back lawn with their outdoor ceremony being held on the corner lawn facing the palm trees surrounded by their family and friends.
Elizabeth and Kyle’s TPC Sawgrass wedding ceremony and reception were amazing! They are such a terrific couple with fun and loving families, and they really wanted their guests to have an amazing experience. Including fireworks! The guests watched the fireworks from the 2nd floor balcony while the bride and groom spent a few minutes outside on the clubhouse lawn to enjoy the show.
Kaley and Ross had a spectacular wedding at TPC Sawgrass, with a ceremony on the clubhouse lawn and a reception in the Ponte Vedra Ballroom. How awesome is their Chipotle groom’s cake? Classic Cakes hit it out of the park for this one!
Thank you!!!!!!! You made our wedding stress free and we really appreciate it!!
