When I woke up on November 5th and stepped outside into the beautiful sunshine, I knew it was going to be an amazing day. Amber and Derrick celebrated their love for each other in front of friends and family in one of the most beautiful venues in Florida, The Treasury on the Plaza in Saint Augustine. In the early 20th century, Treasury on the Plaza was a historic bank that was converted to a wedding venue. There were so many truly beautiful moments and details on Amber and Derrick's wedding day. Amber's father passed away, and to honor his memory, she wore his shoes down the aisle with her uncle escorting her. There was not a dry eye in the audience for that special moment.
One of the things I love about this couple is that when they are together they are completely focused on each other. They are accomplished and amazing people individually, but together they are incredible. In the middle of wedding planning, they started a new business together called Florida Fun Bikes in Gainesville, Florida. When Amber told me about it, my jaw dropped because their ability to juggle their incredibly busy lives and focus on their love for each other is truly inspiring. I could write a novel about how awesome they are, but I know y'all came here to look at their wedding pictures, so here they are!
The entire wedding day could not have been more perfect, and a large part of that was the amazing coordinators at Uncorked Occasions, the staff at Treasury on the Plaza, and Amber's sweet cousin Tifanie Owens.
Isn't she stunning?
