For Kate and Bryan, a wedding day that paid respect to the places they call home was a top priority. Kate, a Californian at heart, met Brian, a Maryland native and decided to wed in Florida, the place they met in high school and began their relationship. Jennifer Earnest of The Chef’s Garden Catering & Events, event planning and catering in Jacksonville, FL served as the caterer and event planner with the bride and groom – an easy match since all three think good food and drink are at the center of any great celebration. They weaved their love story and their family history in through the meal, highlighting a Maryland Crab Cake Station, a California inspired taco and tamale station, and a Florida fresh market display – all paired with signature sippers representing each locale. Shea Hopely Flowers, a floral and event designer in Jacksonville, FL designed a stunning event at The Ribault Club, a wedding venue in Fort George Island, FL packed with dreamy florals (those coral charm peonies are to die for, are they not?!) and an eclectic mix of trinkets and gorgeous vintage furniture. Julie Paisley Photography, a fine art film wedding photographer based in Nashville, TN, captured every joyful moment and inspiring detail in her stunning airy style.
