Ponte Vedra makes for the prettiest of weddings. Ones that are all at once dripping with elegance and bursting with beachy goodness. Which is why when this beautiful bride and her Mr. chose to throw an “Old Hollywood” meets “Modern Beach” affair, there was just no better setting than the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club, a stunning locale with a breathtaking ocean view and the perfect backdrop for one glamorous DIY detail after another and beautiful pink hues every which way you turn. Brooke Images captured every dazzling moment and it’s a gallery chock-full of bow ties, chevron stripes and happy faces.

From the Bride… I always had some idea of what I wanted my wedding day to be like but what we actually experienced was so much more then I could have dreamt. The day was ethereal and calm with lots of excitement buzzing in the warm salty air. My Beach Glamour theme was so much fun to design and I loved combining two very different aesthetics; Old Hollywood Glamour & Modern Beach wedding concepts to make a truly unique experience for our guests. I used touches of Chevron and gray with metallics, corals and white to create a soft and romantic feel. I am an actress from New York and I always love a cinematic approach to anything! I had lots of our favorite movie score soundtracks to have our guests feel like they were transported to a private island for our ceremony and then to a 1950’s beach resort club for the reception.
Everything at our wedding was DIY from all the stationary I designed, signage, menu cards, napkin rings (all 120 of them!), place cards (done with washi tape), and candy bar etc. to help us maintain our budget. At this point husband will probably never pick up a glue gun again! We chose the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club for the ceremony and reception because they had the most gorgeous Ocean view Ballroom with high ceilings and big glass windows next to all the tables. It was so intimate and elegant with impeccable service.
I loved the pink ranunculus boutonnieres for the bridesmaids. We didn’t do boutonnieres for the groomsmen, only a pocket square, so the girls wore these gorgeous flowers on their shoulder since their Audrey Hepburn style dresses needed a little pop of color. I felt our wedding party looked so stunning and classy. The band that we hired, Jax of Jukes, created such a wonderful atmosphere for our reception. They played beautiful classical music through dinner that made you feel like you were in an old movie.
Lastly, a moment I will never forget was my dad’s toast. My dad has a beautifully trained voice and he decided that instead of doing a speech for his toast he would do a short song medley of all the songs that describe me and Jeff’s relationship. It was so special and different I could barely keep the tears back! So many of our guests raved about the unique details they felt special to be a part of. We wish we could relive it again!
I love the simple range of emotions a beautiful wedding film can evoke. One moment you are laughing and the next you are crying some seriously happy tears… and all in just under 5 minutes. Brilliant, no? Lucky for us, today’s stunning video by CollabCreation Films will have you feeling all of the above and then some. When you aren’t swooning over the gorgeous details styled by Christina Kreations or drooling over the fabulous florals by Liz Stewart Floral Design, you’ll be smiling from ear to ear over the Father of the Bride’s heartwarming speech and the love so obviously shared between the uber-adorable bride and groom. Yes, I’ve had this pretty little number on repeat all morning long and I guarantee you will, too. So, sit back, relax and enjoy… and then join us for even more pretty courtesy of Threaded Together Photography below!

From CollabCreation Films… Jessica & Jonathan tied the knot! They celebrated their marriage alongside 200 close friends and family at the beautiful TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra FL. We were there to capture their first look leading to the reception, their fun photo shoot with Threaded Together Photography at the 17th & 18th hole, and so many more!
We couldn’t help but focus on one of the best part of the night, when the father-of-the-bride delivered an unforgettable speech. “When I look at Kelly, and my life, and our family, what really matters, to borrow a term from a cellular company, is really friends and family! There’s so many few things in life you can count on, but if you have strong friends and family, I think you’re the richest person in the world.” There was a lot of love in the room and it definitely shows!
We are trying to hold on to the last rays of sunshine and this glorious Ponte Vedra wedding by Agnes Lopez Photography is just what we need as a distraction from the coming fall. My summer-lovin’ heart was stolen the moment I spotted that halo of craspedia, cool tea-length dress and heart-shaped sunglasses on this sweet, blonde bride. Every detail is just as cheerful and chic as can be. Check them all out in the full gallery!
From Agnes Lopez Photography…Tess and George live in New York City but decide to have their wedding at The Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra, Florida. They were married in an outdoor ceremony under the shade of trees and against a backdrop of streaming fabric in their wedding colors.
Their wedding was filled with so many cool, personal touches. After the ceremony they showed off their matching tattoos, an homage to the “Wagon Wheel” song that George was learning to play when they were dating, and as favors they gave guests local orange clover honey. In lieu of a guest book, everyone was encouraged to leave a personal note on unique postcards.
