Holly and Brock were married last Wednesday in an intimate evening wedding overlooking the water in historic St Augustine, FL. They rented the beautiful Bayfront Mansion for what may be one of the last weddings to take place there.
After having makeup and hair done by makeup artist Faythe Mesic, Holly’s sister and MOH helped her get into her dress. Holly met Brock for a first look on the long dock behind the mansion. They were comfortable and relaxed, knowing that soon they’d officially be husband and wife. We walked through the streets of the neighborhood under a canopy of mossy trees for a few photos of them alone before meeting with their families for pre-ceremony photos.
When the ceremony began, the sun had already descended beyond the trees, leaving behind a sky of cotton candy colors. Following the ceremony, Holly and Brock welcomed their guests into the house for a champagne toast before inviting everyone to partake in a wonderful spread of homemade dishes and desserts. Personally, the highlight of the treats was the homemade fudge and the little red velvet cakes inside Mason jars that Holly had personally made. Their wedding cake was also delicious, with three layers with different flavors, including marble cake with custard, German chocolate, and raspberry filling. Brock had a special groom’s cake in the shape of the Jaguars logo, and inside was chocolate cake with peanut butter filling!
Holly and Brock ended their evening by going to the Castillo de San Marcos with us to do some night photos. Using the wonderful backdrop of the old fort, we gave Holly and Brock a few quiet moments to let their wedding day sink in and to allow them to savor just how amazing and perfect their wedding was.
Now that they’re back from their honeymoon in San Francisco, we’d like to wish Holly and Brock the very best and thank them for being not just an amazing couple, but also our friends! Thank you both so much for the sweet gift, and we can’t wait to get together and watch Christmas Vacation!
