Claire and Wayne were married at the beautiful Bowing Oaks Plantation in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple! Claire and Wayne are one of the most down to earth couples I’ve had the chance of meeting. They’re so comfortable with each other and Claire just lights up next to Wayne. I don’t think I saw Claire without a smile on her face the whole day! Family and friends came from all over to celebrate these two. It was so clear how loved they are, especially during the ceremony when friends and family members took turns saying things they loved about both Claire and Wayne. Their officiant surprised them with this unique idea and it added such a special touch!
I also loved that they utilized both the venue’s outdoor and indoor space for the reception. Cocktail hour, introductions and the first dance were all outside under the string lights! The party then moved inside for dinner, toasts and dancing. It was beautifully decorated by Cassie of Flaire Weddings and Events who was also their planner! She did a phenomenal job and created gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces. I loved the all of the neutrals and greenery with pops of soft colors in the flowers!
This sweet couple is currently honeymooning in Nicaragua! It was such a joy being a part of their big day, enjoy some of my favorite photos below!
