Historic City Nuptials for Lindsay & Aaron

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:15 am by JBEvents


When you pair America’s oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida, with a sweet and beautiful couple, you get a spectacular wedding!!!

The historic city always held a special place in Lindsay’s heart, so when this Sarasota, Florida native was planning her wedding, St. Augustine was the logical choice.

The venue chosen was The White Room Loft and Rooftop located on the Matanzas River. With sweeping views of the River , The Bridge of Lions and old town St. Augustine, the setting was truly magical.

Lindsay and her Mom created so many beautiful touches for the wedding.  From a lovely Seating Assignment display to vintage photo albums containing photos of the couple.  To go along with the “vintage” camera era, Polaroid cameras were provided for guests to snap photos of themselves to place in a memory book for the couple.  Guests had so much fun!

The ceremony took place on the Roof top.  As guests arrived, they were greeted with Prosecco Pops while they mingled.  Then when it was time for the vows, they took their seat and watched as the couple exchanged vows with the gorgeous water view.  An interesting part of the ceremony was what they used as the Unity Ceremony.  Instead of a candle or sand, they used colored glass pieces that will later be blown into a lasting trinket for the couple to display in their home.

The guests were treated to an amazing array of food from delicious displays for Cocktail Hour with specialty beverages to a 5 course meal to a huge dessert display including a ROot Beer Float station, Hot Chocolate Station, Cookie display and a Strawberry Shortcake station.  Guests definitely left with full bellies.

As a post-wedding treat, the guests were suppose to go play mini-golf, however, a few weeks before the wedding, Hurricane Matthew hit and unfortunately destroyed the mini-golf course, so instead, guests were treated to a Trolley Ride through historic St. Augustine.  It was an excellent end to the evening.  

We wish Lindsay & Aaron a lifetime of happiness.  We were indeed honored to have a part in your special day!!!

Fall wedding beauty for Shelby & Drew!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:00 am by JBEvents

Fall is such a beautiful time, with colorful leaves, usually crisp temperatures and blue skies.  When you add to that a gorgeous bride and a handsome groom, you have the makings for something spectacular! Such is the case for Shelby & Drew.

View More:

With venue, Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club, selected, Shelby begin putting her thoughts into the vision for her wedding day.  She selected The Stables as the ceremony and reception site, which lends itself to a rustic vibe – but NOT a mason jar type of vibe, rather an elegant, sophisticated rustic vibe.

She selected some pretty amazing vendors to carry out her vision, such as Christina Robbins (Hair) and McKenzie Mann (Make-up), Happy Everything Company (Photographer),  Low Country Catering, Sweet Creations by Candi Pittman (Cake), John Amoroso (Ceremony and Cocktail Hour Musician), Hip and Hitched (DJ & Sax player), Mary McLeod with Amy Osaba (Florals), Hometown Crew (Videographer) and ShutterBooth (PhotoBooth).  Along with the JBEvents Team, these vendors expertly created and conveyed Shelby’s dream wedding.

There were a couple of adorable features that we really loved.  One was a handmade cross used at the altar.  The other was the oar used for their guest registration.  As I try to impress on all of my clients, be unique, bring your personality out in the wedding – and this couple truly did.

Take a look at the images below and I think you will agree, this was a gorgeous wedding.  What’s your favorite part? {Thank you to Happy Everything Co. for sharing these images!}

We wish Shelby & Drew a lifetime of happiness!!!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!!
