Ginny & Brad {January Wedding at Carillon Beach}

It was a wintery, New Year’s Day and this Florida couple couldn’t wait to ring in the new year with each other as husband and wife!  Remembering back to our first vendor appointments only a couple months before, I remember how slightly-overwhelmed Ginny seemed in the beginning.  Through the few months of planning, all of her worries started to fade away.  Because of the early sunset, we decided that Ginny and Brad would meet each other before the ceremony to capture their sunset and ‘first glimpse’ of each other.  Everything turned out beautifully in her elegant, white and silvery tent!  The Carillon Beach Meeting House was the perfect pick for their request of an intimate setting.  Not ever knowing what the weather will do, we arranged for a cold-weather backup by adding some clear siding to her tent on the Village Green.

While staying at the Inn for the weekend, Ginny chose to get dressed in the low-key, comfort of her room.

This is such a priceless moment that the bride and groom were able to share without anyone around...

Our beautiful trees were the perfect backdrop for Ginny & Brad's first moments of the day.


The wintery white crispness, along with the warmth of the candlelight, created the perfect and elegant feel throughout the wedding day.

As the trio played "The Bridal Chorus" to welcome her in, the time finally came for Gil to walk his gorgeous daughter down the aisle.

Ginny chose to keep the 'holiday' feel inside of the Meeting House. This brought such a warmth throughout the ceremony.

A gorgeous way to capture such a sweet, intimate moment of their first dance! Love that chandelier!

As Ginny's father 'welcomed' their guests, we were able to catch a glimpse of Ginny & Brad's sweetheart table 🙂

I just adored this little side-room that was designed as romantic lounging space. As we sat with Christina {Events by Nouveau}, I remember working on just the right look to compliment Ginny's style.

Another amazing (and delicious) cake that was chosen to visually embraced Ginny's lace wedding gown.
