Doreen & Andrew (1.26.08)

As a wedding photographer, Doreen has seen lots of weddings, and she created a simply stunning wedding for herself and Andrew! The most stunning element was the bridal party's attire - Doreen wore a pale blue wedding gown, while her bridesmaids wore  individual styles of ivory gowns. Gorgeous! And the groomsmen were equally handsome in their khaki suits.

The ceremony at St. Michaels Catholic Church was beautiful, with Doreen's brother escorting her half way down the aisle, and her father escorting her the remainder of the way to the alter.

When the guests arrived at the Golf Club at Amelia Island for the reeption, they were greeted by a photo area where each guest's picture was captured.  At the end of the evening, the photos were displayed in folders with a photo of the bride and groom from the wedding.  Wonderful!

The tables were lined with sheer gold runners and chargers.  Simple floral arrangements lined the runner, and a variety of containers held candies in shades of white, gold and pale blue.

Another truly unique element was the escort cards.  Each card was tied with ribbon and hung from branches in the center of a round table, but the truly special touch was at the bottom. Each card had crystals attached to it that were from an original chandelier at the Ritz Carlton next door.  Doreen had purchased the chandlier and took the crystals off individually to create this special momento for her guests.
