A little over a month ago, October 25th to be exact, I went from being a "Ms." to a "Mrs." The weekend was all that we could have imagined, exactly what we wanted when we planned our little destination wedding in Amelia Island, FL. Here are pictures from the day, enjoy!
The ceremony and reception took place at The Ribault Club, on Ft. George Island, FL.
Our lovely invitations made by my friend Meredith, of grafikmac designs. She is great, and so talented. I can't tell you how much those talents helped me, as you will see in upcoming details.
My hubby pre-ceremony, with my dad and his best man.
Ahhh, my dress. I just want to figure out how to wear it again, I absolutely loved it! I had it made by a dressmaker here in Philadelphia, Kate Ramos. She is amazing, and helped to make the whole process so seamless and stress free.
The colors for the wedding were dark pink and brown. However, Trent wanted to wear a green tie, so I opted for green shoes to coordinate.
My bouquet was stunning. Breathtaking. All the flowers were. Shea Hopely is a master at her craft!
Myra, of twigs & honey, created my fabulous hair adornments.
I love this shot of my mom and I.
My bridesmaids wore dresses from Jcrew, which worked out very well. They opted for long dresses, so we had to find something that wasn't too formal, or too casual. These were perfect.
Our tree. This tree was what sold us when we first looked at the club, we knew that we wanted to get married under it. (**)
Our pre-ceremony drink station. Guests had the option of a citrus infused water, for those who wanted something non-alcoholic. And Pimms Cups, for those who wanted a little kick! (**)
The programs were one big DIY project. I will detail the how-to's in the near future.
We went a bit non-traditional for ceremony music. My wedding party, including Trent, walked into "Here Comes the Sun," by the Beatles. I walked into "God Only Knows," by The Beach Boys.
Our ceremony was a good length, about 15 minutes, which included two readings. The first being "Love," by Roy Croft, and the second being "The Apache Marriage Blessing."
We walked out to "Let My Love Open the Door," by Pete Townsend.
The infamous Phillies pictures. My jersey was actually a gift I received from one of my bridesmaids, back in August, at my bridal shower. It only seemed appropo to incorporate it, given the World Series!
More pictures to come tomorrow...
