My first wedding of 2016 is officially in the books! And what an amazing way to start the year! This wedding holds a special place in my heart. I first met Amy and Cameron the summer of my freshmen year at the University of Florida. I joined my college improv club, Theatre Strike Force and loved how the people I met in that club were vibrant, caring, and hilarious. Amy graduated the year I started college and she moved to Colorado. Luckily, I got to see her whenever she came back to visit Gainesville. I remember watching Cameron and Amy date long distance throughout college and was always amazed at how they made it look so easy. They didn't know it at the time, but their love was inspiration for my own long distance relationship, and I will always be grateful for that. Cameron eventually moved out to Colorado to be with his sweetheart, and they tied the knot this past weekend at Plantation Hall in Haile Village, a small community in Gainesville, Florida.
The entire week before wedding day, the weather channel had been calling for thunderstorms and even hail! On wedding day it rained in the morning, but by early afternoon the sunshine came out and the skies were blue. There were so many beautiful details from this Plantation Hall wedding. One of my favorites was the bouquet Amy picked out. She had The Plant Shoppe Florist put gardenias in her bouquet because her mother's wedding bouquet had gardenias. It was a touching way to honor her parents marriage.
This was such a crazy moment during the ceremony. Amy's parents both walked her up the aisle, but then her mom's heel got caught in the wedding dress!! Luckily there were plenty of people able to step in and save the day.
Look! I put together a stylish outfit on wedding day! Remember last week's post about my outfit blunders?
