Real Weddings| Courtney & Jamie | 12.12.15

Where do we even begin with this stunning couple? Courtney and Jamie were such a joy to work with. From the first planning meeting over coffee to the High Five Sendoff after the reception (which was totally awesome by the way), everything went like a dream. We had the honor to provide them with two of our services for their big day: catering and coordination. They chose the gorgeous Davis Island Garden Club for their Ceremony & Reception, with stunning water views and beautiful indoor and outdoor space for all of the fun they had planned. The guests started on the covered patio with some mini Cuban sandwiches, coconut shrimp and chicken kabob hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour  before enjoying their dinner selection of Roasted Beef Medallions with Cabernet Mushroom Reduction or our Chicken Di Amore  with fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions and prosciutto. During the cocktail hour, the bride and groom were whisked away by their amazing photographers of Andi Diamond Photography capture some of the most stunning portraits we have ever seen (seriously, these two could be models).  Later, the groom and his friends serenaded the bride with  the Sigma Chi Sweetheart Song and together, Jamie, Courtney and their alumni friends sang the UF fight song “We Are the Boys”. It was a picture perfect, beautiful day full of so much fun, and even more love.

Thank you to the wonderful vendors who helped make this day possible!

Real Wedding | Maria & Antonio | 5.2.15

We can’t believe it’s already been 2 months since Maria& Antonio’s wedding (Happy Anniversary you two!). When Maria emailed us a link to her wedding photo gallery and told us we can have any of the photos we wanted, we were OVER THE MOON excited! We had no idea how hard it was going to be to try and narrow down the ones we wanted to share with you all. There were so many incredible photos to look through and choose from. Their ceremony took place under the oak trees on our beautiful lawn,  followed by a cocktail hour in the Grand Ballroom’s Foyer and reception in our Grand Ballroom. You can totally feel the love and emotion emitted through these images (just LOOK at Antonio’s reaction to seeing his gorgeous bride Maria during the first look! PRICELESS!). Thank you to Laura of L.Martin Wedding Photography for doing such an amazing job and for taking great care of our awesome clients.

Hunter’s Green Country Club Photo Shoot

We had the absolute pleasure of working with the team at Hunter’s Green Country Club and Nini Massey of Beyond Floral to create a beautiful stylized photo shoot.  A big thanks the talented Jenifer Moore of Jenifer Moore Photography for capturing these images. Our draping, vintage furniture, candelabras and gold chargers paired perfectly with Nini’s floral design and overall vision as well as the setting at the beautiful Hunter’s Green.
