From HBB Photography…The weather was perfect! The location, classic and serene. Jeff and Jaime were fun, creative, and totally chill to work with. Their wedding in Seaside, FL was intimate, elegant, and personal. They have a simple and very humble way of carrying themselves. Their day totally captured their personalities with the ceremony being small and intimate including their closest friends and family. The bridal party was up for anything and so great to work with. The reception was like seeing them through an open book. The centerpieces depicted photos from anything as their love for Westie Terriers to Ron Burgundy from Anchor Man and different silhouettes of poets, writers and musicians that really gave everyone a clear idea of their interests and personalities. Every details was laid out and put together with so much care and detail.
From the Bride…Jeff and I both have Midwestern roots — at heart, we like things simple, genuine and heartfelt, no big fuss. And our wedding was no different. We kept our wedding fairly small with only our family and close friends there, and decided on Seaside, Florida as the perfect location. I grew up in Florida, and the beach to me is synonymous with happiness. When we visited the Seaside chapel, I couldn’t imagine Jeff and I saying our vows anywhere else. I got most of my wedding ideas from Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings and Green Wedding Shoes and was drawn to weddings and ideas that were sweet, fresh and a little dreamy. We wanted our friends and family to be comfortable and have a great time — more like a lovely backyard summer party than a big lavish wedding. My friends and I made dozens of flowers out of pink, ivory and yellow fabric that we scattered on tables and strung on a few garlands along with pictures of Jeff and me with friends and family, and I loved all the lights strung over the guest tables and twisted up the beautiful sycamore trees in the courtyard. Most of the centerpiece vases are my mom’s. We got the idea for the table numbers from a wedding that used similar black-and-white images of mostly classic country music icons — like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. We picked people and places that were important or inspirational to us, but all a little tongue in cheek. Like I’ve seen in a million places, and I LOVE, we collected some framed photos of our parents and grandparents. This meant a lot to me especially because none of our grandparents could make the trip to Florida, so it was a small way to honor them on our wedding day.
