If it were possible to sum up the wedding day of Victoria and Joe in two words, they would be pure romance. This pretty affair was a celebration of true love and the heart of it shined through from the smallest details to the happy smiles of the bride and groom. The exchanging of stunning personalized vows, the bride’s very favorite part of the day, took place beneath a giant oak tree at The Ribault Club, a Fort George Island wedding venue. Victoria wore a stunning, custom-made wedding gown, her bridesmaids in pretty nautical navy. The bridal bouquet by Shea Hopely Flowers, a Jacksonville-based wedding florist, boasted flowers of poignant meaning, with coral peonies for happy marriage, apricot ranunculus symbolizing adoration, huckleberry for faith, and rosemary for remembrance. Following the picture perfect ceremony was a cocktail hour and reception under the stars, accompanied by curated entertainment by ProShow DJ Guests relaxed to acoustic tunes as they enjoyed classic southern fare by Chef’s Garden. Favorites like cornbread soufflé, bacon-wrapped scallops in maple glaze, and coconut jumbo shrimp were just a few of the features that had guests going back for seconds. Dessert boasted three wedding cakes with flavors to suit every pallet, and made-from scratch apple pies. The intimate party was rich with personal detail, not the least of which, odes to Joe and Victoria’s love of the sea and sailing. As the party continued on guests young and old cut loose on the dance floor, surrounding the bride and groom with the love and cheer of family and friends long into the autumn night. Ais Portraits captured every romance-filled moment of the day beautifully on film.
