Lauren and Vlad had the most stunning, elegant, private home wedding on the St. John’s River in Jacksonville, Florida. Family and friends came from all over, some even from other countries, to join their celebration. They were greeted at the door with champagne as they made there way out to the ceremony site featuring views of downtown Jacksonville and a beautiful floral arch created by Glenn Certain Design. One of my favorite parts of the day was when Lauren walked down the aisle with her mom by her side, it was so sweet! Afterwards, everyone dined under the show-stopping clear tent adorned with greenery and chandeliers as the band played in the background by the pool. Catering by Liz provided cocktail hour hors ‘doeuvres, food stations, dinner and drinks followed by various desserts. The food was as delicious as it was beautiful!
After dinner and lots of dancing, sparklers were lit as Lauren and Vlad exited via boat. After the couple left, Lauren’s step-dad, Steve, told me they would be disembarking the yacht not too far away. He thought it would be a great opportunity for pictures so we headed to the marina! It was definitely worth the drive over and I am so glad he suggested it! These pictures are some of my favorites. It was an absolutely beautiful evening celebrating this sweet couple!
