We’re VERY excited to share last weekend’s wedding with you -a charming historic chapel, vintage elements, a sweet couple and some DIY projects that will knock your socks off!

Lori & Bob held their wedding at the San Marco Preservation Hall, an 1888 Episcopal church that was moved to a park in San Marco and restored in 1994. It’s dark pine woodwork is truly remarkable! If you get a chance, you should plan a visit! It’s one of Jacksonville’s little treasures!

Lori’s vision for the day was very personal, romantic, and with a bit of antique style. Lori is a jewelry artist, and she made the stunning brooch bouquets carried by her and her Maid of Honor, Mary. She also added vintage brooches to the wedding cake and adorned her grandfather’s Bible (which was carried by her mother) with brooches that matched her bouquet.

But what really wowed us was Lori’s bridal style! She looked AMAZING! She had a very romantic Oleg Cassini ruffled gown with a sweet little veil. For the ceremony, she wore a stylish lace and ruffle jacket, but for the reception she showed her sassy side with a flirty, ruffled wrap. Her look was completed by our dear friend Faythe Mesic, who gave Lori a soft, romantic updo and dramatic eyes!

When Lori walked into the chapel, you could see that Bob was fighting back tears. He admitted later that his lip was quivering. But little does he know that she couldn’t stop sneaking peeks of him out of the window of the cottage, saying how amazing he looked in his tux!

We just love everything about this wedding! It was so sweet and personal and I think it really captured the style that Lori envisioned for her perfect day! Their friends and family were so much fun, and they helped so much with making sure that Lori & Bob’s day was everything they dreamed of! Though Lori didn’t officially have a coordinator, her friend Rhonda was running around the entire day making sure that everything went according to plan. She has coordinated weddings for many friends, but just does it for the love of weddings. Not THAT is the kind of friend you want to have when planning your wedding!

Lori & Bob, we wish you both all the best and are so happy that we were there to share such a beautiful day with you! Congratulations!
