Chauntel and Robert are one of those classic, elegant couples that not only have an outer beauty, but are just incredibly sweet and genuine. I first met them during their rehearsal for their wedding. Funny side moment – Robert thought I was the limo drive and then couldn’t stop apologizing! Totally cool, Robert…happens all the time!

My personal favorite detail from the wedding was the birdcage veil she wore. She looked like a movie star from a classic film – timeless and breathtaking. Her look was also enhanced by makeup artist Donna Kemp of Just Kiss ‘N’ Makeup, who made Chauntel and all the girls look flawless!

Chauntel and Robert chose the beautiful Bethel Baptist Institutional Church for their ceremony. We adore older churches, and Bethel is our favorite church in Jacksonville. The dome in the old sanctuary and the inscription over the altar makes it a place of quiet and sacred beauty, perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony, the wedding party hopped in a limo from Dynasty Limousines to go to Riverside’s Memorial Park near Five Points for some group shots and a few shots of Chauntel and Robert. They chose the Jacksonville Firefighter’s Hall for their reception. Alpha & Omega Event Consultants transformed the hall with beautiful uplights, huge centerpieces, and elegant décor.

The finishing touch of elegance was a sparkling 5-tier cake designed by Metro Custom Cakes. Robert’s amazing groom cake featured the Miami Hurricanes football field! After cutting their cakes, Chauntel and Robert partied the night away with the friends and family.

Now that they’re back from their honeymoon, we’re so happy to share their photos! Congratulations Chauntel and Robert! We wish you nothing but happiness and joy in your new life as husband and wife!

    What a beautiful wedding couple and party throughout all the venues. The brilliant ice cream sherbet colors were appealing enough to eat. Chauntel and Robert are as sweet a couple as the colors they choose for the wedding. The pictures on the website and the ones at the Church are masterpieces arresting in time the love this couple has for themselves and others. Upon arriving at this lovely church, my granddaughter, Kayaunna, called it the Queen’s Church. As she walked up the isle dropping the flower petals she explained to me that she was smiling back at the Queen, “Elder Sharon Garlington,” who performed the cerrmony. I have been in Bethel many times but never before saw it as beautifully as I did through the images captured in these photos.
