Chelsea & Matt’s Amelia Island Wedding at the Ritz | Jacksonville Wedding Photography


Chelsea and Matt are one of those couples that you just instantly fall in love with.  They are both so laid back and seem to genuinely love life and living in the moment.  We met them this past Fall while shooting Jessica & Kevin’s wedding.   Matt was very intrigued by our style of shooting and approached us immediately at the reception.  It wasn’t but a week or so after that we had our first consultation with them and I knew instantly they were our kind of couple.  They told us they wanted to have  a simple and elegant wedding near the beach and most importantly make sure everyone who came was having an incredible time!  They trusted our vision for shooting their wedding and capturing all the important moments giving us complete creative freedom.  We love that!  When we showed up on their wedding day everything was running smooth as can be.  Everyone was so relaxed, enjoying the moments leading up to the ceremony.  Chelsea looked stunning in her Monique Lhuillier sheath gown and ridiculously brilliant diamond earrings.  She was absolutely glowing as she walked down the aisle to meet her soon to be husband.  The ceremony was held on the lawn of the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island overlooking the ocean.  The breeze kept everyone cool as the sun began to set behind the hotel.  After Matt & Chelsea said “I do” cocktails started flowing while live music played.  Everyone was having a great time exactly as Matt & Chelsea predicted.  The rest of the night was spent dancing and celebrating inside the ballroom of the Ritz followed by a sparkler send off.

Chelsea & Matt we are so happy to have been part of such a beautiful day in your lives.  You two are so perfect for one another and we have enjoyed every minute with you both.  We hope your honeymoon in Antigua was incredible.  We wish you both lots of love and happiness together!

Cheers,

Mel & Brad
