When you pair the sandy shores of Florida with the gorgeous ballrooms of The Ritz Carlton, it’s safe to say the result is going to be jaw-droppingly beautiful. It basically guarantees gorgeous, and when you add a couple that look like they belong in the movies? Lovelies, we have a winner. That entire scenario unfolds through the lovely images from Jamie Borland Photography allowing us to spend our wedding surrounded by all the pretty right here. What more can you ask for?
From Jamie Borland Photography… I’m so excited to share with you one of my favorite weddings from 2012. The bride is the coordinator for the Ritz Carlton, Miami and she put thought and effort into every minor detail resulting in a stunning wedding from start to finish! She admits much of her inspiration was from Style Me Pretty! The brides vision was a “modern and elegant wedding” with a simple color palate of white and silver which complimented their lush pink ballroom beautifully. Their reception ended by releasing LED balloons into the crystal clear sky. It was pure magic.
From the Bride… Jeff and I wanted a destination wedding but somewhere that was close to home and that everyone could come celebrate with us. We couldn’t have chosen a better location then The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Being that we met at the location in Miami, we felt it would be very meaningful to get married at one of their sister properties. Our wedding weekend was absolutely amazing with beautiful weather. We were surrounded by friends and family all weekend who shared so much of their love with us. What made it even more special was that it was Thanksgiving Weekend and I was able to share the Holiday with many of my friends and family.
One of my favorite moments was at the ceremony standing with my husband to be, holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes and feeling as if we were the only ones there. I was the happiest girl in the world. One of the most important things to me was that everyone danced the night away and thanks to my DJ, that’s exactly what we all did. I always dreamed of a simple, modern, elegant wedding. I loved the idea of all my bridesmaids wearing different color palette dresses and styles.
My sister and I created the table numbers from an idea we got online. We spray painted some small glass jars with looking glass spray paint and large number stickers. We then added a small candle to each jar. The gorgeous sheen of the new mirror look made the flame of the candle dance around the entire glass jar. It was perfect. I could not have done this without the help of my mother and sister who were there for me every step of the way and were so creative. Most importantly I married the man of my dreams and I look forward to our future together.
